Who wouldnt love the chance to eat in a old school railroad car. Franks is a must visit destination for any visitor. For the locals franks is not a well kept secret its a staple that locals love. Food and service will keep you coming back. Awesome place.

A Spokane Must: Gage, a server, has been at Frank's Diner for something crazy like 25 years. She is precise, kind, goofy and a staple there. She is just a small example of the timeless, consistency that you will find at Franks. It is a whole package and part of Spokane. Breakfast is what we do there, but the lunches... More

We live in Spokane and Frank's Diner is always a sure bet for a good meal and fun! The dining car experience is fun, staff is always friendly, and the food is always good (even for the picky eater!), AND it's reasonably priced!! Both Downtown and North-side locations are great. Don't miss out!! It's worth it!!

I went here for a great breakfast after a long night (if you know what I mean) and we loved everything we had. The crispy hashbrowns, homemade biscuits, gravy, Spanish scramble and perfectly cooked bacon. Plus the service is quick and friendly here. We always sit at the counter because we like to feel like we are in the action.

We went on a tuesday morning and there was a small line with three groups in front of us, but the wait was pretty quick 10 minutes at most. I don't like cramped spaces, but the experience of eating in an old railroad car was worth it. There were four of us and we all ordered our own meals, but... More

The bellman at our hotel told us about this local favorite and I know why it is a favorite. They made a simple breakfast a feast. The hash browns were crisp like we prefer. The hash with eggs was comfort food at its best. Simple can be delicious!

Easy access off of I-90 in Spokane for a very unique & enjoyable meal. Known for their "best breakfast" anytime and also very good for comfort food. The historic railroad car is worth the visit alone & then the great food & service will make you very happy!

This place is popular so you may have to wait but it is worth it... Something for everyone... classic griddle selections and also some unique selections like the steak and eggs with a peppercorn gravy, some eggs benedict variations that are really quite good, but the one thing that trumps them all are Huckleberries. Huckleberries are seasonal so if you... More

I love this place- It's super fun to eat there and the food is very tasty. The crowd on Sunday is quite large and is to be expected, but they do have a covered outdoor area if the tiny entry is full. I like the little frenchy- or the tiny track myself. They have the BEST hot chocolate I have... More
