This cute, old fashioned place it great. You can have your hot dog grilled or deep fried. The chili is nice and spicy and they have grilled onions. On the menu you will find hamburgers, clam strips, and the like. Very inexpensive, very casual and...More

Don't waste your money. I dined with some friends today at this restaurant. For some reason we just had a craving for hotdogs. Don't get me wrong the food was OK. The prices though in my opinion were extremely high. Each hotdog cost $3.50. The...More

Stopped in for a quick Dog & Fries while in the area. No reason to complain.Super convenient to I-95, plenty of parking and much better than the nonsense food you can expect at an interstate rest area. Why the "excellent rating" you ask? Simple. It...More

First, I'd like to mention that I went to Swanky Franks in October 2012, but I could only put October 2013. With that settled, Swanky's has great hot dogs, shakes, burgers, and fries. The menus are posted on the upper walls of the seating area....More

Swanky Franks has been serving dogs, burgers and fries for decades. The search for a decent dog in Fairfield County has been difficult. They serve Boars Head and offer hot dogs, grilled dogs, Swanky red hots, a variety of burgers and sandwiches, and fried seafood....More

My husband grew up in Norwalk and had been at this place many times. We finally were down in that area and decided to stop. It's a very small place, not much to look at but the food was incredibly fast and quite good. We...More

Living in the area for 20 years, Swanky is an institution. A bit dumpy but that is what gives it character. A group of us went for lunch recently. The dogs were just okay. Nothing special. The fries were greasy and soggy. The grease has...More
