“Frank's can't be topped”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

If you are ever in Raleigh for lunch or dinner and are looking for top flight pizza Frank's cannot be topped. You have to go to New York to find a pizza even remotely as good. They serve the best meatball sub I have ever eaten.

“Best Pizza Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Been coming to Franks for 25years. It's the best around. The staff is always friendly and pizza is fantastic. If you come to Raleigh, need to get Franks pizza.

“Excellent Food - Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

My wife and I visited Frank's on the recommendation of a friend. We both had a pasta dish and enjoyed them very much. The service was excellent. The decor is very 1980's. Iced tea was wonderful. This restaurant is definitely worth a return visit.

“Badah Bing Badah Bang! Nobody's betta'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Raleigh is not your pizza or sub city. When I first moved here it literally took me YEARS to find a good pizza and sub joint.....finally I landed upon Franks. Everyone I've taken here agrees it's the best pizza or sub they've ever had. My youngest daughter calls it "the scary pizza place" when I ask her if she wants to eat there. It's her/our favorite pizza restaurant but the atmosphere is a little uh, "badah bing badah bang-ish". Most of the staff is pleasant and several have been around awhile. The food is simply finger licking good. Once you go once you'll be back.
