Hidden gem

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... read more

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

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.

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
