The flagship location of specialty hot dog restaurant Frank (407 Colorado St.) has temporarily shuttered following a seizure Feb. 1 by the Texas Comptroller’s Office that was a result of unpaid taxes.

Frank owners say that much of the tax burden in question came from the failed San Antonio location, which closed two weeks ago. Owners are working on a resolution to the issue and hope to pay their bill and reopen in about a week. The closure has no effect on other Frank locations.
