Delicious and filling, hot dogs are vastly preferable to hot cats, who just snap their claws, listen to jazz, and call you “Daddy-O.” Cut the jive with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet franks at Franktuary. This Groupon is valid at the downtown store location as well as for orders at the mobile truck, which can be tracked by following @franktuary on Twitter.
Voted Best Downtown Lunch Spot by readers of Pittsburgh Magazine, Franktuary hews true to ethical eating principles, proffering buns full of locally-sourced beef weenies and PETA-lauded vegan franks. From their stationary headquarters in the back of Trinity Cathedral, these tube-toppers dish out a state-themed menu of dogs ($3.40–$5.80), such as the New Yorker, ensconced in sauerkraut and Vidalia onion sauce; and the Texan, which veils chili and cheddar under a ten-gallon hat of jalapeños. The roving frank truck incarnation touts a regularly rotating menu that ranges appropriately farther for inspiration; previous options have included the Bangkok in satay sauce and fresh herbs, and the Oahu with teriyaki and grilled pineapple ($5–$6). Match one of the signature sausages with gravy-laden poutine at the truck, or with hot pierogies or fresh-fruit smoothies in-store, each providing a steadfast companion to keep the dogs from howling for loneliness.
