Best Pizza in town.

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

If you like Pizza Hut or Dominos, don't go to Frank's. However, if you love real pizza, you will be happy you came. The Frank's special is amazing!

I've lived in Appleton all my life and have been to Franks' many times. I've been hungry for one of the beef sandwich's, which I haven't had in many years, so we went there last night. We went early, around 5 o'clock, and not many people in the restaurant. My wife and I both ordered the beef sandwich and the... More

Only restaraunt I've ever been in that doesn't take credit cards. No POS system, waitress with a calculator telling me my bill was $100. Pretty close I guess. Pizza was average. Deep dish was good (got the order wrong...)Regular crust was very greasy and undercooked because they make their half-full restaraunt of sit down customers wait about 40 minutes on... More

Although I have lived in the area for years and have had Frank's deliver pizza I had never actually eaten there until last night. The pizza is always very good, but eating in was a treat. When you walk in you can see them making pizza and enjoy the pizza smells, and yes it does stay on your clothing but... More
