“Gotta love Franks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2008

I spent four years at Carthage College in Kenosha and there was no better hangover place than Franks. The garbage place is awesome, and this sounds dumb to everyone I tell, but they have the best bread in the world. Yes, it is their bread that makes the meal! Do yourself a favor and head over to this little hole in the wall for the best breakfast in the Midwest!

“Best in Kenosha”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2008

Ridiculously good breakfasts in a hip setting. If you want good food, executed well and friendly service, check this place out. If you want glass, chrome, ferns and a sterile, stodgy environment where beehived waitresses wear name tags, go elsewhere.

Everyone knows about the garbage plate and it's outstanding. The burgers are good, too. If you're lucky enough to be there when the Mushroom soup is on the menu, try a cup of that, also. It's great. The Bloody Marys rock, too.

All in all, it's a place that does things a little differently, and that's great. If you want the same old predictable corporate-type experience, go to IHOP.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2008

Oh my lord was this place good. The service was fantastic, and the food was even better. It was INSANELY crowded (Sunday morning at 9am, go figure) but it was well worth the wait!

I'm so glad I went. Can't wait to go again.

“Awesome breakfast!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2008

Frank's Diner is great. My husband and I just started going about 6 months ago and can't get enough. They have the best garbage plate in the world and to watch the cooks is such entertainment. If I had to list a downside it would be the wait. It takes a while so don't go if you are in a hurry. But it is soo worth the wait. Just be patient and enjoy the atmosphere.
