Tequilla for Breakfast

We went for breakfast on a busy Friday morning and sat at the only available seats- at the bar. The kids had a great view of the meals being made and we got to chat with the waitresses- who are a hoot. There was a shot of tequilla at 10 o'clock and we ordered mimosas- which were the size of... read more

LOVE Franks! Great breakfasts, even simple things like eggs bacon toast and hash browns are heavenly. The pancakes are wonderful - but huge, just order one or two! Also love the french toast made on homemade bread or homemade cinnamin rolls. The place is also charming inside. But there isn't tons of seating, so try to come not during peak... More

Happened upon this place on the Food Network website as we were passing through Kenosha. What a find! The garbage plate was their claim to fame and now I know why! Yum! A ton of food! Go hungry to this teeny little rail car diner but don't watch them prepare the food too closely. Perhaps they ran out of hairnets... More

Entertaining and delicious. We are talking regular food for normal eating. Try the garbage plate. Everything is good and you never know who you'll meet at the counter

Franks is the best place for breakfast in the area. You can not go wrong with the garbage plate! They also have a great cinnamon french toast and the atmosphere can't be beat!! It's a great place

Get there early and prepare to wait it is worth it made fresh made well made to order. the employees are sometimes a little off the wall but that is the charm of it all. from the homemade bread to the garbage plate it is breakfast time any time.

I stopped by with my kids for a quick meal. The garbage plate along with a bloody mary was great. The service is a bit slow, but it's a mom/pop type place. Neat experience for all of us. Prices a bit high but would still return.

On weekends the lines are long, but it is the experience that sets this apart from the others. Plus the food is good!

took my family of four for breakfast having heard about this Kenosha institution. Waiting in the doorway for several minutes and then were seated in a rush by the waiter. Took our order and we waited and waited. The food was good but the service is not worth the hassle. There are places with better food and exceptional service...like The... More
