The spot that used to hold the much-loved but now-gone Sliced & Diced eatery has finally found its replacement: after a year of holding up a Frank’n’Fries sign, the hot dog joint is finally open for visitors to get down on their offering of meat’n’buns.
The menu is super straight-forward: pick a style, pick a side, go for it.
The Long Beach is a bacon-wrapped dog with avocado and cheddar; the Los Angeles is a bacon-wrapped dog with grilled bell peppers, onion, ketchup, and mayo; the New York is just a dog with sauerkraut and spicy mustard; the Detroit is a chili dog…
They even have a Vietnamese dog that comes with spicy mayo, cucumber, fresh jalapeño, shredded carrots, and cilantro, harkening to the country’s famed bánh mì.
My recommendation? Go for the sampler: four half-dogs of your choosing. Oh, and the funnel cake—it’s truly awesome.
Frank’n’Fries is located at 3201 E. Anaheim.
Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
