YUM

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.

Frankie's serves seafood soup sandwiches salads and HotDogs. Make no mistake about it it's still fast food but a step up from ur average McDonald's or Burger King! I love coming here! Sometimes when it's not too crazy they bring ur food to ur table. Most food is made to order, Fresh vs sitting and waiting for you to get... More

I have been eating at this place since I was a kid. Frankie's has the best hotdogs ever and if you add the famous Frankie's hot relish it just adds to your taste buds.

I went to the Chase Ave location and every employee was out-of-their-way nice. The owner/manager (not sure which) was on the floor making sure every customer had the correct order and made sure the food was prepared properly. Its nice to see people in fast food service that take this much pride in their job. I will totally be back... More
