Frank's has moved. Same great breakfast (it's all we've ever gone for because it's so good). Same staff. Bigger, better restaurant. No longer the old long, slender dining area that felt cramped. Now a lot more space and much more open. Frank's has moved to Cottage Hill, IL. 132 W. Macarthur Dr. (Rt. 140) Cottage Hills, IL 62018 (618) 258-8440

Not sure what happened but Frank's is out of service. "Village Inn" now in its place with about the same quality of food.

We had dinner at Franks diner. This is the old fashion home cooked meals with the friendliest people. With a large home cooking menu to choose from, we order the country fried steak and WOW was it good. If we could have stayed another day, we would have loved to returned for breakfast.

I've been here several times with friends and family. The wide selection of 'American style' food is always tasty in very generous portions and the prices are quite fair. In my experience the friendly service is good but slows a little when the place is very busy. There are a lot of tables fairly crammed in, so it's a little... More

This is the first time my husband & I have been to Frank's & we agreed whole heartedly it would be the last. The place was packed, which we took as a good sign. We were seated right away, but it was the only table open. We got our menus right away and the waitress came by in a good... More

We are from out of town on vacation and we will definitely be back great food and great service, you get large portions for the small price you pay, they make you fee rightl at home and a part of the family.

We found Frank's Restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Everyone else on tripadvisor was raving about their breakfasts. As we were staying in a hotel with complimentary breakfasts, we needed Frank's for dinner. What we found was a place that seemed locally popular, had almost no atmosphere, but it is worth a try when you are... More

We always go to Frank's for their breakfast, it's some of the best around. When I'm in the mood for some biscuits & gravy, this is where we go. 2 biscuits & gravy (full plate), 2 eggs, 2 bacon & 2 sausage links...I always leave stuffed. The hash browns are very good too and the pancakes are nearly the size... More
