Go to place when growing up in Waterbury and always visit when in the area. Terrific hot dogs, foot longs, with all sorts of self-serve toppings. And, if not able to make a trip up North, friends bring the relish when they visit us. Also very yummy lobster rolls!

All the food is tasty but the fried clam strips are the best I have ever had. They have just the right amount of batter on them and are fried just right. The fried mushrooms are great also

Great hot dog with the best relish in the area. Very basic venue. Usually sit outside on very noise street. Besides the hotdogs are the usual fare of fried food and seafood. Great little place to get a quick meal. Just wish they would add unsweetened ice tea to the menu.

Oh take me back to my youth! I could not decide between the soft shell crab or the lobster roll so I ordered both and well worth it. Have not been to Frankie's in 40 yrs - like I said in my youth.
