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

This place is great if you're looking for a nice greasy, cheap meal. Otherwise the atmosphere is dated, the clientelle can be sketchy, but the waitresses are spunky and hard working.

The only reason I don't give this one star is because the people working there are pretty nice. Food is gross, we couldn't eat it. And the place looks like you stepped back into the early 70's. A dirty early 70's.
