Best NY style pizza in Raleigh

Love their eggplant toppling. Thinly sliced and fried. Their mushrooms are canned though and the green peppers taste strange.

Introduced co-workers to Frank's and we are having pizza again in less than a month! I'm from New England and we know our pizza. Sweet crust, dough not too thick and sliced sausage to die for. We get one large pepperoni and one large sausage. This is not NY pizza, it is Italian pizza. There is a difference.

We went there for dinner early on a Saturday evening. This is a little place in a strip mall in southeast Raleigh where we visited to see our niece in high school play. The reviews were good and they were accurate. The takeout was moderately busy. The dining area was cozy but comfortable. The four of us could talk over... More

If you can get past the ghetto superstars he has working for him, you can get a decent pizza! Just had a very bad experience trying to place an order over the phone with one of his workers (Zukina), yeah, the name says enough. Anyways, after placing me on hold for over 10 minutes, I hung up and called back... More

My fiancee and I get Frank's pretty often. Definitely best pizza in Southest Raleigh, and so far the best I have had in the Triangle in my 3 years living here. Tucked away inside the Longview Shopping Center off New Bern Avenue. If you are heading downtown for the nightstop at Frank's for some good eats!

Every time I go to Franks I have a great experience. Franks is one restaurant I grew up eating. It truly a hidden gem. The staff is warm and friendly you can tell they are like a family. The pizza is amazing but , it does not stop there. I would recommend the cheesy garlic bread and a chicken hoagie... More

they advertise to call take out ordders but. They answer the phone and hang up in your face. this happened 5 times tonight. Then while I'm walking in the door I dial the number and behold the server answers. I tell her I'm here now why didn't you answer when I wasn't. She replied we were busy. It was only... More

Called to place an order at a local Italian place at 830pm. Reviews looked great and I was in from out of town. Rude lady letting me know that they were closed. Update the closing time.

I first ate at Frank’s 34 years ago when the area next door to them was the King Charles Post Office substation and the far corner of their shopping center was a Kerr Drug. I lived near there then and ate there fairly often. Today the place is rather unchanged inside from what I remember back then, so it is... More

Best pizza I have had in a long time. Try their pizza with sausage. It is delicious!!! This restaurant is tiny and ugly but don't let that fool you, the food is great and the staff is friendly.
