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.

Straight from the 80's (though seriously updated bathrooms - they are very nice). Food is generous and good. Love the servers - all are very sweet and kind and, after 2 visits - you feel like regulars.

My husband and I were at a loss to find a good meal when we were in Raleigh, despite lots of recommendations from locals. As a native New Yorker, I am ever skeptical of places that label themselves with "New York Style Pizza" but this one was true! The pizza was really good and the toppings were great. One night...

I was in my teens, when I first went to Frank's! I am now almost 62. Frank's is still the same ! This is pizza you dream about! One of the first Frank's to own this gem was Frank Amato. He now owns Piccola Italia Pizza in Cameron Village. The pizza is the same at both locations! A lot of... More

My girlfriend and I went to Frank's based on reviews from Tripadvisor because we were looking for a new pizza place to try. The pizza was excellent and I would gladly order it for takeout, but I wouldn't eat inside again. The decor was fine and is what you would expect for a typical pizza place, but our server basically... More
