A group of us spent a weekend in Port Aransas about 2 month ago for a photography shoot. We went to the Horace Caldwell Pier for sunrise photos. Needless to say, we were done by 7:30 a.m. and we were hungry. And local gave us a recommendation for Frankie's Kitchen. What a wonderful little place! We were the first customers... More

Our meal was $45 for 3 people at breakfast. We had Eggs Benedict $15, 2 pancakes w/fruit in them eggs sausage $15 (or... More

First time in Port A, found this place and it was crowded. Only had to wait a little bit, but very small cafe. Breakfast was great, awesome gravy and home fries. Don't come here if you have to be somewhere, they are slow as can be.

My favorite restaurant in Port A. I've been coming here since the first year they opened. It's the best shrimp I have ever eaten....and fried shrimp is my favorite meal, so I've eaten plenty through the years. Frankie gets the shrimp fresh off the boat and pulls it from the ice chest each time she receives an order. It has... More

This was one of the few places in Port Aransas that I kept hearing I had to go to. Apparently the owners drive down from Houston every weekend to cook breakfast here. It is a small place and it was packed. I wasn't sure if I should wait, and then I saw some of the plates coming out of the... More

We loved our breakfast at Frankie's! We went there on our last morning at Port A. It was a great "last" experience for that trip.

Don't be decieved by the exterior...this is the best restaurant in Port A. The burger was the best I've had in a while (definitely the best on the island). The pancakes were like crack - I couldn't stop eating them. Everyone in our party of 8 had a great meal. The staff was great - excellent experience all around.

Like many of the restaurants on Port Aransas, this one is a family owned business, small and no frills. It seats only 22 people at a time. You'll be asked to wait outside for a table, which can be brutal in the summer. But once we were seated, the server and owners were very friendly and the food came out... More
