Frank features artisan hot dogs in 2014

Hot dogs might be scarce in downtown Buffalo (for now), which is why it’s such a relief to have the Frank food truck back in operation. With one year under its belt, Frank is coming back with a vengeance by introducing a series of gourmet dogs that will elevate the hotdog experience in the city.

New to the menu are artisanal links made by meat purveyors such as Spotted Trotter in Atlanta and the Brooklyn Hot Dog Co. in New York, as well as local favorites by T-Meadow Farm and Spar’s European Meat Shop. The new year will showcase a range of hot dog ingredients ranging from pork belly to chicken wing, and even a gyro dog will make the cut. For those looking for more of a traditional hot dog experience, Sahlen’s will still be on the menu.

“As promised, we are fully committed to growing the brand and expanding our strong reputation for offering innovative and unique hot dogs that consist of more than just ketchup and mustard. Moving forward, Frank Gourmet Hot Dogs will continue to introduce additional artisinal hot dogs into the menu,” said co-owner Paul Tripi. “It is an exciting time for us at Frank Gourmet Hot Dogs as the demand for gourmet hot dogs continues to rise. Last year, we focused on introducing classic and modern condiments to the familiar and beloved Sahlen’s hot dog. This year, however, we will pair our classic and modern condiments with high-quality, healthier hot dogs to create a unique hot dog experience.”

Frank is set to relaunch on Thursday, February 27th outside of the First Niagara Center.
