Frank ‘n Stein
Review by: Tony Bad
Route 1 in this part of Florida… heck, the whole length of Route 1, is grossly overrun with fast-food places. A detour of just one block will bring you to Frank ‘n Stein, which has so much more to offer. We were there around noon on a weekday, and Frank ‘n Stein was busy. Once inside, you’ll find an order line, and after ordering take a seat and they’ll bring your tray to you. You can also sit at the big U-shaped counter.
They serve grilled Sabrett dogs with a wide selection of toppings. My favorite is the “no beans” chili, which is not excessively hot, but has what I feel is just the right level of spice for a dog topping. The coleslaw dog is also a favorite – the slaw has a nice vinegary bite to it that tastes great on the spicy Sabrett dog.
I am not a fan of that NY City pushcart staple, red onion sauce, but my companions said the sauce here was the standard Sabrett sauce that they know and love. My companions also raved about the bratwurst, which is served with the same choice of any of the standard toppings.
The good french fries appeared to be hand cut. Draft beer is served in frosted mugs. They also have several bottled beers, but I didn’t take notice, opting for a pitcher instead. The menu also includes such things as a meatball sub, Philly steak, and chicken sandwich… but this place is all about the dogs!
Frank ‘n Stein in Stuart is a block east of Route 1, just north of the “big bridge” in Stuart, Florida.
