“Yummy huge burgers and great cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The burger special nights are amazing value, food is generally excellent though, and later on it becomes an awesome party spot for the younger crowd. The barmen are also very entertaining!

“Great for big groups”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Perhaps it was the wrong evening to go, but on a Friday night the place is pretty packed. Took way too long to order drinks. We stayed for a drink or two but moved on. Probably would've been more enjoyable if we were in a bigger group.

“Decent night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Pietermaritzburg does not have many night spots on offer, manking Franki's a must visit spot for many looking for somewhere that is open after 8pm! The hamburgers are highly recommended and the atmosphere and location are great.
