Frank restaurant coming to The Drag

Frank’s sausages are made at Hudson’s Meats in Austin using a proprietary recipe from the restaurant.

Following the departure of two concepts from celebrity chefs Marc Vetri (Pizzeria Vetri) and Michael Symon (Symon’s Burger Spot), locally-owned Frank (Hot Dogs, Cold Beer) will be moving in Urban Outfitters’ 24Twenty space on The Drag.

Frank will take over the Burger Spot space and introduce a fast-casual version of the gourmet hot dog restaurant that opened on Colorado Street in the Warehouse District in 2009.

Owners said the opening could happen as soon as next month and definitely before the start of the fall semester at the University of Texas.

The menu will include some of Frank’s most popular dishes from downtown (I bet the Jackalope and Pig Vicious make it up town), a roster of specialty items only available at the campus location, game-day specials and an assortment of Texas beer and wine.

“The success of the Frank brand has been due in no small part to our high end – low brow concept. We intend to offer price approachable and fast options for every guest on the Drag,” co-owner Daniel  Northcutt said.

In addition to their new campus location, the Frank owners also recently took over operations at the historic Scholz Garten.
