Perfectly Franks, Summerville, SC

What's he waiting for, get in there quick.
Perfectly Franks, Simply Perfect.
If you would have told me that I would be as excited as I was at a “hot dog place” I would have told you that it was crazy - true, but crazy.

We stopped in at Perfectly Franks on a Friday for lunch.  It was about 1:00 p.m. and the place was packed. Although not a very large restaurant, it was impeccably clean and incredibly well run, and did I mention, packed…

Lining Up For Franks
The service system is simple.  You place your order at a counter and your meal is brought to you.  No one told us that there would be at least 25 people ahead of us trying to do the same thing.  Be that as it may the ordering process went quickly and I camped out at a table waiting for lunch.

Even with the incredible line (which continued throughout our stay there), our lunch was ready in about 5 minutes.  It was awesome.

Although I am certain that you can order any hot dog that you’d like, many on the menu are named after a “Frank”.  My “Frank Thomas” was their replica of a Chicago Dog, minus the poppy seeded roll.  Relish, sauerkraut, mustard, hot peppers, mustard, celery salt and tomato slices topped the roll.  Be aware too that it’s not just a hot dog roll.  There are just too many toppings to squeeze into a plain old hot dog roll!!  The roll is much larger and easily holds your hot dog delight!

My husband ordered two dogs.  The Frank ‘Cuda was named after the owner, Perry ‘Cuda and was something to see.  A dog topped with blue cheese, cole slaw, fried onion strings and chili was a decadent hot dog display. And he didn’t stop there.

Frank Cuda - OMG!
The “Frank Morgan” was a hot dog topped with macaroni and cheese.  Yes, you’ve read this correctly, mac ‘n cheese.  What appeared to be Velvetta laden mac’ n cheese covered the dog and although my husband was full from his first dog, he kept on going… It was simply irresistible.

Franks Fries
We did also split an order of fries, although very good, they were somewhat lost in the mix - our lunch total - $14.00.  No surprise that the line of 20 - 25 people waiting to order continued throughout our stay.  It was crazy good.

We have always liked Jack’s Cosmic dogs but after our visit to Perfectly Frank’s it’s safe to say that there really is no comparison.  Perfectly Franks is simply, perfect.

 We gave Perfectly Franks 5 out of a possible 5 plates.
