To Be Frank, a new ghost kitchen serving specialty hot dogs and sausages, opens Oct. 2 for delivery, takeout and catering.
They will be open Monday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to midnight at the popular downtown eatery Every Grain, located at 1430 E. Charleston Blvd.
Inspired by a lyric from hip hop duo Run the Jewels and rapper 2-Chainz’s song “Out of Sight,” the name To Be Frank seemed perfect.
To Be Frank’s menu offers an array of carefully crafted dogs and sausages topped with artisan ingredients served on fresh, locally-baked buns. Quality meats are used in all of the menu items, with hot dogs sourced from third generation family company Nueske’s and Isaan sausages all the way from Thailand.
Notable items include:
- “Thai Dog” — Isaan Thai sausage with green papaya slaw, kewpie mayo, red onion, crunchy peanut
- “Banh Mi” — Pork pate, seasoned mayo, pickled carrots and radish, cilantro
- “Kimchi Dog” — Glazed dog, creamy gochujang, white kimchi, scallion relish, and goldenaise
Guests can add bacon lardons to any dog and choose from a variety of sides including coleslaw, German potato salad, chili and Tim’s Chips. To top off their already delectable meal, diners can choose from a handful of desserts including banana pudding and a sugar cookie with raspberry curd dip.
Indoor dining is not available so To Be Frank is offering contactless pickup and delivery directly through the restaurant as well as through Uber Eats, GrubHub and Postmates.
