Cool local joint

A hole in the wall type place. Off the beaten path. Hard working crew, looks as if most of the business is delivery. Small dinning area, not good for large groups. But the pizza, no that the real story. Great value, large pies, fast service. Just a cool local place to eat.

You can count on great NY style pizza and accommodating service in this shotgun hole in the wall that even has a NY feel about it. My ten year old son counted it as his second favorite pizza ever, and he's eaten pizza from Budapest to Hilo. I just enjoyed kicking back with a couple of beers and enjoying the... More

The pizza here is so delicious it melts in your mouth. The service is great and the location is very accessible. I love coming here after a night out.

I LOVE this pizza! It is truly one of the best NY style pizzas I have ever had. Crispy bottom crust and oh so tasty! Beware: this shop is in a small, small old building and lines are frequent. Lines can wrap around be the bathroom, under the stairs and back outside again. Get there early and get there often!... More

My co-worker and I where looking for an early dinner after work and a bouncer on the street we where on recommended Frank's to us. It seems like a very local dive but what a great slice of pizza! I had a slice of the cheese pizza with what tasted like a bbq marinara and a slice of the supreme.... More

We were hungry walked around the area to find a bite to eat. We came across Franks Pizza. The place stayed busy. I had the lasagna and my friend had the burger and they were both ok. Most people that came in actually order pizza, maybe we should have done the same.

The size of these pizzas is the best thing about Franks! They're gigantic pizzas, and cost around 19 to 24 bucks, but are worth every penny!, they're delicious and very fresh!. Very greasy though, so if you're on a diet, Frank's isn't for you!.

Wife and I visited during the lunchtime hours, and greeted immediately as we approached the counter to order. The food was fresh, and they heated it up to give it the fresh from the oven taste. The portions and toppings were generous and the prices are reasonable, but the thing that stuck out to me was the hand tossed crust-... More

The pizza is fresh and delicious! The line was long but definitely worth the wait. We even ordered extra pizzas to take home with us.
