This is were the locals go for breakfast and for good reasons. The breakfast buffet is awesome, the service is great and the price is right. If you leave hungry it's your own fault

My Grandma has been coming to Franks forever it seems. It has great food, great prices and great atmosphere in general. It can get busy here at times though.

We eat here often. My favorite is the hoagie and you must try the Meatball soup. Very friendly staff. Great place to bring the whole family.
