We've been here a few times and this is a great place to go for breakfast if you can make it when it's not too crowded. There is limited space, but the staff is friendly and great with kids. The garbage plate is excellent with huge portions and the homemade bread is excellent. By far the best thing about this... More

Lived here for 40 years and never been to Frank's Diner before and I sure missed out on a lot of fun. Very busy place but they keep you moving and entertained. You get a large portion of good old fashion food. If you want fancy it is not the place to go but if you want good food and... More

The place is small and you will have to wait on a table for weekend breakfast but worth the wait! The food is amazing and the staff is very friendly.

Been to Franks so many times I can't count but one thing for sure is it never disappoints. Bring your appetite and your patience. Make sure you are with a few nice people who don't mind waiting a little longer for your order. It's very cozy once you get inside and on weekend mornings the wait can be a little... More

The breakfast menu is fantastic and the cooks are just fun to watch. The servers are also a real fun group who will keep you on your toes. If you have never been here you must get one of the garbage plates. You can get pancakes, over easy eggs and that type of thing anywhere. Try the garbage plate and... More

This place is super fun; it has great signs everywhere, and a cool vibe. The staff was very friendly and fun. I had the garbage plate with 2 meats it was fantastic, wife had the cheeseburger and it was pretty solid. The wait is kind of a negative because you have to stand smushed up against the wall in between... More

There is no shortage of great places to eat in Kenosha but this is a must for breakfast. Try the garbage plate. This diner was converted from a railroad car diner and has indoor and outdoor seating. The food is great. I suggest going on a weekday morning. If you go on a weekend go very early or be prepared... More

We have a neighborhood restaurant we visit daily for eats and socializing. We have a new friend and wanted to treat him to something different and we chose Franks Diner as we really liked it the first and only time we visited. This time there was plenty of parking and no waiting. Last time we waited 30-40 minutes to be... More

Not worth the fuss! The food was average, place was crowded, not neat enough staff, and did not meet up to expectations.
