We ordered fried turkeys, smoked ham and a complete Thanksgiving Dinner. Fried turkeys tasted like old oil and was so spicy, you could not taste the turkey. The ham was not pink, it was brown and lost it flavor due to bring dried out. We could not taste the smoke ham flavor but just tasted clove or all spice flavor.... More

Went there for breakfast with a group. We did make reservations. This place is always busy and there is always a wait, but worth it. People park everywhere. The portions are good size and everything has good flavor. There is a smoke house next door that is part of Franks and my wifes family said that is also very good.... More

I ate here twice on a recent business trip. Both times I had a great experience. I had breakfast both times. The first time I had the gator tail sausage and eggs. The second time was bacon and eggs. I highly recommend trying the gator tail sausage. The biscuits are great too. Ask to get your biscuits grilled for a... More

Stopped in to try breakfast on our way through Baton Rouge. About a 30 minute wait but once we were seated the service and good delivery were quick. Biscuits are excellent, biscuits and gravy, spicy sausage, grits and bacon were all excellent. Coffee was hot and the waitress consistently kept it refilled. Service was great. Very friendly. We asked for... More

I have taken the family here twice for brunch and the family definitely loves it. The food is plentiful and great, the staff is very warm and friendly. It's become a favorite that we'll visit monthly.

Franks advertises the "best biscuits in Louisiana". Not hardly! Ate breakfast here and was terribly disappointed. Grits were terrible. Biscuits were sandy tasting, coffee was pitiful. I am very empathetic with wait staff, as both my kids have worked has wait staff. The folks here were obviously struggling to get the work done.

We could have had free breakfast at our hotel but this place got such rave reviews for their biscuits......NOT! First off, do NOT be in a hurry!! And they were not even that busy. After sitting while two other tables that arrived after us got their order taken, it was our turn. After watching people who arrived a good 15... More

We really wanted to like this place but we were sorely disappointed. Suffice it to say that if you want good food do not go here. "Best biscuits"? Hardly! If you want to know more of why to avoid this place, here ya go. We hoped for a good lunch place for our family. What we got was a family... More

Lots of choices on menu including adkins and vegetarian! Food was great, service was too, reasonable price just be prepared to wait for a table. Not fancy though, so if you want that, go elsewhere :)
