Best thin crust pizza on College Ave!

Great location downtown Appleton! Franks has the best thin crust pizza ever. The staff are friendly and service is fast! I love that you can see your pizza being made - which is done to perfection down to the last toss. The location is perfect, and the cool fish tank in the entrance is an added... read more

The pizza is greasy and too salty. When carried out it isn't given in the standard cardboard box so it's difficult to transport. Let's put it this way, the guys are nice but I'd prefer Dominos.

If you want delicious real thin crust pizza, go to Frank's. Just the smell when you walk in makes the trip worthwhile. The homemade crust and homemade sausage are amazing. Going to Frank's is like taking a trip back in time to when pizza was pizza. If you like Pizza Hut or Dominos or any other type of

Loved their pizza when our daughter was in college there, went back several years later and it was still so delicious. Nice thin crust and great sauce!

Been going here since the late 60s and not much has changed, especially the food. It's always been excellent. For pizza, we always get the Frank's Special. It can't be beat!

Grew up in Appleton, have lived in NYC and Chicago, and Frank's is still my favorite pizza. Super thin, crispy crust and great sauce - love it!

Pizza here was awesome. Cooked in a vintage oven. Thin crisp crust and very tasty. The service however is sad. The staff delivered the pizza and then became distracted by large groups leaving our groups completely ignored. All this for a quite rich price. This is not a inexpensive pizzeria. Would I eat here again? Big maybe.....

Every time i visit my relatives in Appleton we will eat here at least every other day. Sometimes even as a late night snack. I love how they are so thin but yet so full of flavor. I've actually never had one any place else quite like it. Excellent - Cannot wait till i visit again.

Two 12 inch pizza's and 4 soda's for $46.00 plus tip? That was a lot. The pizza tasted good though. No free refills on soda either. That's a shame especially when you pay $1.79 for the first one. My elderly mother spilled her soda because of those ridiculously weird & large straws they give (macaroni noodles are they?). The wait... More
