Forgotten back in time...

This place will take you back in time, you might think you're still in the 50s not just in decor but also in charm and courtesy. The waitstaff is delightful, mature, pleasant, efficient and friendly. We were a group of 25 people, we were accommodated so well and served in a timely manner... read more

For years, Frank's has been a trip favorite as we travel via 77 from Waco to Refugio before continuing to Aransas Pass. Adding the time from Dallas to Waco means Schulenburg for lunch. Most of the time, we stop at Frank's on the way and again on the return trip. Although we are unfamiliar with the breakfast, we have never... More

We've been stopping at Frank's for over 30 years, but not for a couple of years. We had the lunch specials. The pork chop and sausage were good but the sides just did not measure up. The service was fair and the meals came quickly.....maybe a bit too quickly. It's sad to see a favored place like Frank's go into... More

A huge restaurant for such a small town, I was quiet surprised subpar effort of the waitress during a lax period, limited choices on a minute breakfast menu, overdone biscuits, CheezWhiz type product on a Western omelette, and no gravy. For the positve - the bacon was crisp as ordered.

We stopped by Frank's on our way back to Houston. I had always wanted to try it because of the signs. Inside, it reminds me of the 1970's with the dark wood and tile. The place was pretty empty on a Saturday morning. The service was extremely slow, as others have noted. The food way okay. We had pancakes, eggs... More

I travel I-10 a lot and this has always been a regular breakfast stop. It's got a '50s diner feel without gimmicks because that's likely that last time it was updated. Priced are reasonable and I've always found the service to be fine. They have a curiosity shop where they sell baked goods and Texas themed " stuff", sort of... More

Excellent breakfast. Homeade bread for toast, hash browns, eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon. All were delicious. The waitress was super nice. Glad we took the time to sit down for breakfast. It was worth the time.

The food was OK, I had breakfast and that's hard to mess up. My friend had fried chicken and with all the nice bread they make, they served her salad with saltines and butter, Bread and butter would have been better. I also had to order toast to go with my eggs. The food was good, filling and prompt.

Both my husband and I were disappointed in chicken fried steaks we ordered for lunch. It was definitely not steak, but rather like a breaded processed "steak" from the frozen food section. The gravy tasted prepackaged, also. Ugg! Not the Frank's we rembered. Will not eat there again.

Franks is an excellent choice when traveling between San Antonio and Houston for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have daily specials and the food is quite good. The servers are polite and the dining room is clean. They make everything from scratch as ordered so service can sometimes be a little slow. It's a nice alternative to the Oakridge... We... More
