We have been there ones. Pizza is acceptable. Lasagne and carbonara was poor. Only one thing which was delicious it was beef tacos.

The beer so cold And The Lasagne so good. Prices are good and the quality is high. You would not expect such a niche quality between all those jollibees and kfcs here.

The prices are not very cheap. We ordered calzone pizza, juice and beer. The pizza was great, authentic and with real cheese. This is probably why the dish has such a value. The tables are a bit small.

The menu is extensive, all the food is tasty, and they have a sort of healthy thing going on with "no msg" stickers on the menu. It's a good break from the regular fast food options. The staff isn't the most focused, but the owner is always around to keep service levels high

What I really like about Frankie's is that they serve you good food that you can't find anywhere else in the city. And in my opinion, their food taste great and the price is just average. Having to eat quesadillas at your own 'backyard' is a treat. Sometimes, I think it's better to eat here than those at very crowded... More

Their menu is bigger than many IKEA instruction manuals and practically any food you could want. Be forewarned- the amount of food is huge.

My wife and I tried the chilli fries, coney island hotdog (with hungarian sausage) and the chicken quesadilla when we visited. All in all we were firmly underwhelmed for the price. The chilli fries were barely luke warm and seemed to have no real spice except for salt and pepper, no cumin or garlic really, so essentially not much flavour... More

Among all the fast food places in the mall. This is by far the best. A must try while you are here. Frankie wasn't there when I went but a friend of his was and we ended up talking about Frankie for quite a while. Good times.

Been travelling around the philippines for a while and was so happy to eat here. I'm vegetarian and found it very difficult everywhere else to find a decent meal but this place hit the spot (I had a veggie burger). We had some of the best western food here and will definitely go back.

Getting here is so easy. Just take a cab from the city and tell the driver to bring you to island city mall. This resto has so many choices for healthy meals. I so love their burger. Guaranteed no msg.
