A touch of New York

This became a favorite of our group. Late in the evening the place is pretty crowded. Great Pizza and a good salad

This is a small little hole in the wall and there is not a lot of seating inside. But the pizza was to die for (New York fold-able style) and very reasonably priced. That could be because the parking lot across the street is a rip off, so watch out for that.

I come into Frank's all the time when I'm downtown, sometimes I even make a special trip downtown just for their pizza. It's not a huge place, so there isn't a lot of seating, but I usually always find a place to sit upstairs, whether I come during lunch, dinner, or late night. They removed the booths upstairs to make... More

We loved that it was a local place and it was inexpensive. We just got a cheese pizza and it was good. The waiters were not very friendly but they weren't bad. Well come back if we can. Houston is awesome.

Great pizza that is big and delicious. This is the big city pizza with the charms of a hole-in-the wall place. Locals and others, families and couples all make it home.

We came upon this place after visiting with family at some local bars. It was quick and easy to order, some of us had slices of pizza, one had a burger and the others had the lasagna. We all enjoyed our food very much and agreed we would come back for sure.

My wife and I were visiting friends in Houston and were told to walk down to Franks for the best "NYC Style" pizza. I've eaten a lot of pizza in NYC. Franks is thin and large, like NYC but it was overcooked ( I had a several black pepperonis). There was hardly any sauce, and I felt the flavor was... More
