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!

We use to dine at Frankie's on Laskin Road but the restaurant closed when all the new construction started to make way for the new condos and stores. So happy we found Frankie's just a short drive from the beach area still in business and doing well. The barbecue and side dishes are super delicious and the restaurant has great... More

We have been going to Frankie's to get our ribs fix for almost 20 years. The ribs are cooked to perfection every time and the side dishes are an excellent match. The onion loaf is a perfect starter but is large enough to dull your appetite for the mouth watering ribs that follow. The staff is always friendly and will... More

My extended family often eats here as a big group. Everyone orders something different and everyone enjoys their meal. Our last outing saw orders of fried tilapia, the chicken cashew salad and their steak sandwich. All were delicious! Go hungry because the servings are plentiful -- and they bring out a basket of cornbread with your order.
