“Not bad for fast food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Been driving past Franks for years. Finally stopped in to try their hot dogs. It's not Der Wienerschnitzel! Mom had the Bacon, egg and cheese sandwich on a bun. It was ok, the egg was overcooked and kind of tough.

“Pup and Taco”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The place is way overrated. The chili dogs are literally floating in the chili, the fries are OK, the big problem is the self service implement 'bar' which is very small, crowded and always littered with spills. It's had to believe that Costco's hot dogs are head and shoulders above this place, but they are. Try a street hot dog instead.

“Little bit of heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Milk shakes are great, well I haven't had any thing there that I don't like. Ample servings, good value for your money. It's about a 30 min drive for me but I eat there about once a month

“not the best, but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Well, the prices are very reasonable. The service is prompt. The food...good but i would pay more for a burger put together better. Tomatos were sliced too thin and were mushy. The bun wasn't very toasted. The burger was at least tasty and cooked perfect medium. Great place for kids, of course.
