Always busy, worth the wait

There's always a line whenever I go, and it's sometimes hard to find a place to sit, but I'd happily stand in a free spot just to eat there. Fast, good, decent prices. Don't expect a fine dining experience though.

I love Frank's! I really know my pizza coming from NY- don't pass this one up when in the mood for pizza- I come here at least 3x/month.

I was waiting for the bus to the airport, which stops nearby, and decided to go in for a slice of pizza and a beer. Very friendly staff and very good pizza. I highly recommend it.

The pizza is a great portion for the $3.25 price tag. My supreme was hot out of the oven, however, my husband's meat lovers was cold. Very busy place, but plenty of seating. Will come back again and recommend trying.

My first trip to Frank's even though I work downtown. I'll be back - great big slices of yummy pizza at a fair price. Small place, but cozy. Try the pizza rolls!

When you are new to Houston and downtown in particular, there are a few places you are told you MUST eat. Frank's is at the top of that list and for good reason. The pizza is pretty damn stellar. And delivery is always far faster than you'd expect. There aren't a whole lot of pizza options downtown but this is... More

Pretty good for an American pizzeria. I had a cheese pizza and a Stella, the pizza was made fast and fresh. Good dough and tomato sauce was great. I also had a salad but gave it to some homeless people on the way back to the hotel. It is sad how many homeless people are in downtown Houston

Pepperoni Rolls were the best! Marguerita Pizza was good. But pass on the cheesesticks (mozzarella sticks)...they were limp and not freat flavor. Small Chicago or NY style restaurant making it a fun atmosphere where you come to eat after hitting the bars down the street. Open to 3am.

Located in an old section of downtown about half-way between the Theatre District and Minute Maid Park, Frank's Pizza is our favorite place to eat. Not a lot of space to eat but there is a nice park a couple blocks away. They always have pizza available by the slice and the beer is cold.

I ordered in to my hotel and was told 40 minutes, it took over a hour and when the food got there it was cold and soggy. The French fries were inedible, the pizza was ok the pizza rolls fared good and we're good. They might have good food at the store but don't order delivery.
