Dirty Frank's Hog Dog Palace

i’m very fond on gary seman’s reviews. his judgments tend to be fair and his palate is well traveled. of all the reviewers around town, this guy seems to have a firm grasp of parsing flavors while eschewing excess adjectives. and not to mention, because we writes for thisweek news, it seems like his readership is more along the outerbelt and isn’t pressured by other agendas (locavore trends/downtown vibrancy/publisher gossip/whatever they may be). anyways, i trust the dude’s palate and he’s never given poor advice.August 27, 2009 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #267521

Meh. Some people just don’t dig mac and cheese. I don’t think the review was bad. I lurve DF’s, but I’ve still had a dog or two I don’t like either…that’s why there’s so many…bound to not dig a couple.
I guess this cat and I will never be friends…
“Bizarro moment: A 24-ounce can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Does anyone really want — or need — that much PBR in one can?”
I’ll take it in the can as much as I can get it buddy.August 27, 2009 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #267523
You’re so saucy…
As soon as I read that PBR line, I knew you would have a reaction. It’s like he’s trying to kick your dog.August 27, 2009 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #267524

The fire on the Rhine hot dog is topped with a Asian infused sauerkraut mix, the main ingredients are sauerkraut and red chili paste.August 27, 2009 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #267526
So, maybe I’m a food idiot, but since we’ve got the famous Alex visiting us now, can someone clue me in to the fried leeks. I got them the first time I ate there and I have to say I felt like an idiot sitting there trying to figure out how I’m supposed to be eating them. Do you eat the whole thing, just the white part, should I have been using a fork or is it finger food. I know this sounds like a dumb question, but they just confuse me in their fried deliciousness.August 27, 2009 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #267527
I had the same question.August 27, 2009 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #267528
I peel off strips along the whole length of the leek and eat the whole thing. It’s finger food – silverware would be really difficult for someone with my level of coordination.August 27, 2009 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #267529

I know. What’s the deal with him. Not only do I need that much PBR in a can…I’m likely going to order like 3 more.

This was my method as well.August 27, 2009 9:57 pm at 9:57 pm #267532
Although I also must disagree with the review when it comes to the PBR, I think he was right on with a few other things.
I also found the baked beans to be rather bland. Similarly, I was not a fan of the Seoul Dog either. I can’t say I’d recommend it to anyone, regardless of how they feel about kimchi generally.August 28, 2009 12:13 am at 12:13 am #267533
Yeah, I didn’t think his review was all that negative, and I agree with a few things as well… I wasn’t a big fan of the mac & cheese, but that’s probably because Anne makes some killer baked mac & cheese at home and I’m spoiled on that. And I don’t drink beer, so any amount of PBR is too much PBR for me. That being said, I’ve found the the certain things I like at DF, and those items are awesome. No one has to be totally in love with every single thing on the menu to enjoy the place.
So yeah… no need to run the dude out of town with pitchforks for speaking his honest opinion. Tastes are subjective, right? Give the guy a break.August 28, 2009 12:21 am at 12:21 am #267534
I enjoyed my recent trip to Dirty Franks, and I’m a HUGE fan of mac & cheese… and no offense, I really wasn’t a big fan of Dirty Frank’s offering. It tasted like a gooey mouthful of melted Velveeta cheese to me.
My favorite in town is actually from Hoggy’s. I’m pretty sure there is cottage cheese & sour cream in mix, along with good sharp cheddar. Their chili-mac is also a very yummy variation.
