Have been going to this place for 10 years but after tonight's experience, will not return. The hostess acted like she was doing us the biggest favor in the world to seat us, although they had plenty of open tables. Server inquired if we had any coupons before she took our order, then said if we had coupons the free... More

Frankies is located conveniently in a strip shopping center with an inviting appearance. Since our only bar-b-que place we go to when the urge for bar-b-que strikes is located some distance from us and Frankies is much closer, we decided to give it a try. The complimentary chicken soup was excellent - not too salty and very flavorful. We shared... More

In a shopping mall somehow I wasn't expecting much. But 3 of us came in from the airport, starved. I ordered the full rack and I'm telling you I destroyed them in 10 minutes. The service was great. Restrooms a tad messy but could have been recently done. It won't keep me from coming back. These are not Kansas City... More

I came here for a geocaching monthly meet and greet after most cachers had already arrived and been served. It took awhile to get the server's attention since the others at my table had already been served and some had finished. I ordered a sliced bbq sandwich with fries and coleslaw. All were satisfactory. This is the second time I've... More

We had a satisfactory visit .Our waitress did a fine job of serving us except when she was at other tables. When we were looking for her,we hear another waitress say, "What do the want now?" As we were looking for drink replenishment, we thought this comment to be rude. Nevertheless, the ribs were a bit dry and I did... More

I never pick Frankie`s as a dining choice. The food is never consistent in quality or temperature. The service always lacks something. Far from my favorite place to eat!
