St. Louis' Best Hot Dog of 2009: Frank's N Brats


Step up to Frank Merrins' hot dog stand and order your favorite style. His cart, "Frank's N Brats," can be found on Broadway just south of Busch Stadium and is open two hours prior to every home Cardinals game.

Frank sells his wieners in a brown paper bag so you can walk right into Busch Stadium with it and avoid paying through the nose for a dog at the ballpark. That's one reason his dogs are St. Louis' Best Hot Dogs for 2009.

They're also big and tasty.

"My dog's 100 percent pure beef. It's a large dog," boast Merrin.
