“Soggy Bun”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

I've eaten here twice. The first time as I was in the area and I wanted to compare with Chris and Robs Chicago Taste Authority, as Chicago style hotdogs are my last remaining vice. The restaurant was messy, in need of a top to bottom cleaning, and the food was average.
I thought I'd give the place a second choice, and won't be going back. The bun is supposed to be steamed, in this case it was wet and fell apart. The hot dog itself was OK, the toppings were tasty. The cashier fills your soda cup for you, to be sure you get too much ice and not too much already watered down soda.The ambiance overall was lacking, so I won't be going back.

“Great food, fun atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I was visiting the twin cities and thought this would be a great place to take my co-workers to. They really got a kick out of the person who took their orders, he was quite a character. The Chicago dog was great, and a huge amount of French fries. The Italian beef sandwich was huge and looked awesome. If you are from out of town, looking for a local favorite...then this is it!

“Frankie's is a great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012 via mobile

I work nearby, so I make Frankie's at least a once a week lunch stop. Wide variety of Vienna beef sandwiches, hamburgers, Chicago Dogs and more.

All cooked to order while you watch and chat with the owner.

This is not a "sit down" place. You place your order, wait in line while they quickly fix it up then you go find a table. Never disappointed.

Local cops always find the great food places and I see them in Frankie's quite frequently!
