“Franks is Famous for a reason!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Franks is Famous for a reason! Consistent and GOOD quick food. Try their breakfast burrito n home made salsa, to their pancakes and eggs. Arnold said it best, "I'll be back!"

“over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

This is a hot dog hamburger place but neither are what you would call outstanding. It is a hang out place for college and high school student during lunch time so it can get crowded. There are a few outdoor tables to get away from the noise.

“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Frank's is the best. Good greasy spoon dogs and fries. We often get a variety of items to chow down on at work. The breakfasts are good value for money

Great selection of Hot Dogs and Hamburgers, crowded when we went, but service was quick. And just a short walk to our room.

“Good ol Hot Dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Every hotdog you can imagine is made at Frank's; good beef, good fries and very nice onion rings! :-) Lots of college kids work here; Frank's is great at supporting the community. I've never had a bad DOG at Frank's - Local hangout.
