America was deep in the Depression the year that Frank Caiazzo got into the hot dog business. It was 1933 and millions of men were wondering where their next dollar was coming from. Not Frank. Frank was planning to become a successful businessman. And he had a good idea how he'd do it. Frank was a barber at the time, and not far from the shop where he worked in Waterbury, Connecticut was a hot dog stand. Frank had noticed that the owner closed his stand each fall and spent his winters in Florida. Why, asked Frank, can't I do the same? One day Frank noticed a For Sale sign on a piece of vacant property that he passed daily on the way to work. He visited the owner of the propety and asked, How much? Three thousand dollars, came the reply. Frank sighed and went home. Three thousand seemed like three million then, he recalls. But Frank discovered that he didn't need the $3,000 all at once. His father offered $500 as a down payment, and Frank bought the lot. He asked his brother Paul to join him in the hot dog business. Now he had a lot and a partner. What he didn't have was a building.
Frankie's is pretty good. I tried their hotdogs and I have to say I didn't think there was anything special there. That's not to say it wasn't good. Just didn't live up to the hype. Good burgers. Great pulled pork. Overall I like Frankie's but this place has gotten very expensive in the last couple of years. I'll be back again though. Gravy fries are awesome!
