Breakfast!

We go for brunch usually. The breakfast is great. I get the French toast every time, it is good. My husband gets the BBQ, he gets the pulled pork. It's always moist. Their biscuits are huge and perfectly delicious! Servers are always friendly. Great atmosphere!

We go to Franks for breakfast, and its an old fashioned one with homemade biscuits, sausage links or pattys, grits, pancakes, syrup, hash browns, etc. Get the picture! Lots of memorabilia to look at while you wait.

Frank's is an experience all its own, from the cafeteria tables and plastic chairs to the waitresses who have probably worked here since day one. A great place to take visitors who want a real local experience. The food is hearty and flavorful and plenty of it.

You've got to try the alligator sausage! I was surprised by how delicious it was. They have awesome jambalaya omelettes, butterfinger pancakes, just about everything is great.

Franks Smokehouse is actually next door to the Restaurant. I ate here a few times and this place is great for breakfast. Several different kinds of their homemade sausage. I tried the alligator sausage but I loved the Boudin sausage! If you leave without having the biscuits then you have missed something. If the biscuits were any flakier they would... More

But enjoyed my first Po Boy nonetheless. Had the spicy sausage Po Boy sandwich and it was very good. Very diner-esque, but clean and friendly service.

Went for breakfast with new friends. It was an authentic Louisiana experience. I had the Eggs Benedict. Oh how good this was. I wanted to go back again but it did not work out. I will get there again. You can try alligator sausage too.
