This place has been here a long time and we've been meaning to try. We've lived in the area for fifteen years and never been. We went on a Friday evening around 6:30. There were customers but I wouldn't say it was "busy" and yet we waited for 50 minutes for one pizza and one sandwich. There are only two... More

This place has been around for a long time! The building has character and it's fun to not only watch people walk by the window but you can watch your crust being tossed around and the pizza being built at the counter. The smell in there is amazing.

Simply the Best pizza, been going there for 60 years. The sauce and thin crust are perfect. The sausage is made by them and it is fantastic. This is a must if you come to Appleton.

This place has not changed since the sixties. I grew up on this food and it has not changed. Best pizza ever . Poor service but always has been and you don't go for the service.

Salad bar sucks! No shredded cheese, just diced mozzerella. Onions are too finely chopped. No croutons. The italian dressing sucks. No free refills! Had to track down the waitress every time we needed something! The lazagna was very good. Had pepperoni pizza. The pepperoni is ok. Owner was drinking and talking down to the employees and customers. They dont take... More

Stopped in on our way out after setting up our son at college. Had passed by the night before and it looked interesting. The night we stopped by passed several other pizza places all of which looked empty; not Frank's! Pizza is thin crust and is excellent. Reminded me of pizza I had as a kid in suburban Chicago.

We loved Frank's! It's a definite favorite with the locals and a tradition for first-time visitors to Appleton, and now we know why. The prices are stupendous, as is the food. Really loved the pasta!
