Atmosphere is cool old diner. Long wait time and service very slow. Food average. Garbage plate is signature dish great if you like eggs. Worth going to once take some pics and you can say you were there. Once is enough.

Frank's is a great place to take guests. There is a very pleasant feel except for the wait for seats. Food is made to order, so hot and tasty but the down side is it can take awhile to get it once the order is placed. Also be prepared and bring cash (an ATM is on the premises). Frank's is... More

Waiting for a table on weekends is always a challenge as the "aisle" is very tight (sit at the counter if your party is 1-2). Great service for being as big as Michael Jordan's shoebox--the servers always show grace under pressure. Oh, and every breakfast on the menu, from loaded oatmeal to the famous garbage plate is worth the price.

I was really disappointed at the decline in simple hospitality at Frank's. I stopped in for breakfast with a friend and the guy cleaning tables was rude to us right out if the gate! As we sat there for nearly an hour, we observed him being totally rude to several different groups, even causing one couple to leave! The food?... More

Restaurant is very small but worth the wait. Breakfast time is extremely busy. So get there very early. Service is friendly.

Took a trip to Kenosha from Chicago based on a friend recommendation for some good eats. We got to Franks and waited in the corridor while customers from the inside step out and once we went inside, more wait behind the counter. But that's O.K. because it part of the appeal and the experience at being at Franks. Once we... More

If you want to have some awesome breakfast, but have to stand in line for it, it's soooo worth it! They have the pancakes and garbage plate! It's a very small place, but people will wait an hour to get a table because it's so good!

Great place for breakfast, just be prepared to wait standing behind others eating at the counter. But that's part of the fun!
