Everyone’s Frank Until Proven Otherwise

by sara on July 20, 2010

There was a hot dog spot on Lower Greenville a few years ago called Big D’s Dogs.

They had a thai chili lime dog (among other crazy inventions) that was redonkulous.  They had cake batter shakes, Dublin Dr. Pepper floats and Italian sodas.  Jerry Stackhouse ate there.  They didn’t make it 🙁  WHY DALLAS, WHY?  I’ve been on the hunt for a good hot dog place ever since.  If you are a member at Costco and you have cash on you, the $1.50 you have to fork over for one of their dogs and a drink isn’t a bad deal.  But if you’re looking for something a little more upscale, head over to Everyone’s Frank at Coit/Park in Plano.

While they aren’t eclectic and off the wall like Big D’s Dogs, they do have gourmet hot dogs and sausage and the staff knows their wieners.  I rolled with the sweet red pepper and basil chicken dog topped with sport peppers, sweet relish and Frank’s hot sauce.  It had a simple, nice kick to it and the chicken was flavored quite nicely.  I liked that they offered wheat buns because you know how I get about my buns.  Side of sweet potato fries was just aight.  They were seasoned with salt and pepper like normal fries but sometimes I just want my taters plain.

My personal trainer/computer whisperer/hot date ordered two hot dogs because he is a champion.  Behold the bratwurst and the plain hot dog with onion rings:

I thought the bratwurst would be bigger.  That’s what she said.

The verdict?  They were good and he would go again. So, we weren’t blown away by Everyone’s Frank since we can go to Whole Foods and buy a whole package of organic chicken sausage and make them ourselves.  But it’s nice to know there’s an option in town in case we don’t feel like driving to Whole Foods.

Note to Frank: Simplify your menu.  I sat there like an Arabian Rock Ape going “derrrrrr” for five minutes before I narrowed down what I wanted on my dog.  Also, Frank, salad dressings?

I’m happy to report that our cycling training is right on target.  We busted out 50 miles yesterday and although I can’t feel my legs today, we’re confident that we’re ready for Shammies ‘n Koozies.

BONUS UPDATE: The interstate Kleenex gang has now teamed up with the Pants gang (west side!) and they are going strong.  Do not lose eye contact with your Kleenex or you bet your a$$ they’ll go missing too.
