This was my first trip to Capt Franks. I have several t-shirts that I have been given by family members over the years so I had to finally go. I wasn’t feeling like a hotdog so I got a shrimp basket. I should have gotten...More

Fast service, really good hot dogs & fries. I enjoyed the mad dog with hot peppers. Enjoyed sitting up top. Sweet tea was refreshing. Our meal hit the spot & was reasonably priced.

We were expecting a bit more based on previous reviews. The slaw had too much celery seeds or something and really overpowered the taste of the hot dogs. Pretty mediocre for the proce.

Great variety of hotdog choices. I had the Mac and cheese hotdog and it was delicious! Service was quick and accommodating of a big party. Would recommend.

Captn Frank is a baller. He should be open later, but all in all I'd say the dogs are the epitomy of the good stuff the outer banks has to offer. The Wright Brothers missed out.

Mac and cheese franks girls went wild. Couldn't pass this one up. Enough seating for a small group. We also had steak and cheese, fries and pulled pork. Small portions for the price, but comparable with other places. Pulled pork had too much of a...More

Very popular - very good place for a hotdog. We visited in early April, can't imagine what it is like during the summer months. Even though they have a sign asking people to wait until they order to go to a table, several people went...More
