Returned to Frank's with the family of 6 on a Friday night. Had 2 Frank's specials and a pepperoni/onion. Our server threw in a free garlic cheese bread since the specials take a little time to cook. You can never go wrong with Frank's. Still my favorite pizza in the world!

Great pizza - awesome service - and they had a live brass 1920's band! Everyone from enter to paying the check was very pleasant!

We have traveled extensively, including places around the world! Have had some great pizza but never as good as Frank's. I grew up in Appleton experiencing my first pizza at Frank and Pats in the early sixties. This is simply the best, period!

Ok I get it; Frank's is an institution in Appleton. You went there after the high school dance, you had your 8th birthday party there. It's nice and the pizza is very good but it has slipped on service and price. I don't get the weird half ripped in two guest checks. Can you just do like every place in... More

Frank and Pats. Sorry- That's what I still call it. Just like Mill and Blaine with fleet and farm and farm and fleet . You might change the name because of a falling out. But when you got a good thing- you don't change the experience

My wife and I go to Franks every other month to enjoy Frank's Special Pizza. It is unbelievable in size, flavor, and value. You can't find better pizza in the fox valley.

I've been eating pizza from Frank's forever. The best crust, the best sauce, the nest sausage. I recommend The "Frank's Special".. Or the roast beef sandwich. Say what you want about the service, I've always found it to be accommodating even if a little bit slow at times... Never bad service.... They also offer some of their pizza varieties frozen,...

Pizza was good but twice asked for some water.... never received it. First time in my life a waitress didn't bring me a drink... Can't make this up.

Pizza preferences are highly personal. Some like it thin, some thick; Some like spicy sauce, some sweet. Frank's makes my favorite pizza in Appleton. I like the sauce - perfectly piquant and it balances on the thin, crispy crust beautifully. I vary my toppings but always include their sausage. They serve beer and wine along with the soft drinks. There... More

Love Franks Pizza, have been a fan for years - the "Franks special " with Ex ex mushrooms is my fav! GIANT old school dining area, bring the whole family. Its more pricy than Dominos - but this is hand tossed / secret recipe and a family owned biz - plus you get what you pay for folks. PLUS, they... More
