Good food, awesome service!

My 12 and 8 year old wanted to go somewhere they had never been, and they chose this one (as they have seen the sign from the freeway every time we come to Spokane). To be honest, I was a little sketched out when we pulled up because the neighborhood seems a little scary, however once inside we... read more

older restaurant but always had good food here. sometimes a bit slow but always worth the wait. good assortment on the menu, and usually the waitress's are a lot of fun, no grumpies here. and for your viewing pleasure you can watch all the people over at dicks, and all the assorted wild animals roaming the area.

A rainy night in Spokane. Stopped at the first BIG sign for a restaurant. Maybe this was once the place, but now it is NOT! Staff was one waitress and a kid cooking. Dinner right out of the microwave. Only the French Fries were decent. Skip this place.

How can you not want to eat at a place with a giant sign just off the freeway. It seemed a bit sketchy from the outside but the waitress was friendly and very helpful. The food was good and large.

Frankie Doodles is great. Reminds me of the good ole days. It is a classic rad-side diner / coffee shop. Are you old enough to remember when Little Black Sambo's and Bob's Big Boy restaurants were in every town? The menu is extensive, the food is good at a good value and the staff is very warm and friendly. Service... More

I dine here every time I come to Spokane. The staff is very friendly and the food is terrific! I visit about every 6 months and the staff remembers me.

I've lived in Spokane for 40 years and this is the first time I have been in. I think it was a VIPs originally. It was pretty good. A bit like a Denny's but localy owned. The place was clean (don't let the outside fool you) and the staff was very friendly. They seem to have a cadre of regulars.... More
