Frank has been serving Austin's widest variety of artisan sausage for years now, and somehow they still manage to come up with some of the most creative dishes in town. Frank has something for everybody - tons of different sausage options, vegetarian options like veggie sausage and falafel, a brunch that could cure even the worst hangovers, awesome cocktails, and killer coffee. 

All Frank Sausages are made in house or locally for Frank by Hudson Sausage Co. on South Congress. Purists can find classic dogs like the Chicago Dog or Chili Cheese dog, while adventurists can go wild with the German Currywurst or the Notorious P.I.G. But if you're really looking for something unique, check out some of the more original dogs listed below:
