I was in town for business and on the final day of the trip I wanted to meet up with a former co-worker for breakfast. After a little Internet search we decided on Frank's and we definitely made the right choice. I know it's not hard to make breakfast items, but you could tell this place cares about what comes...

Went here for breakfast and WOW what a treat. The sweet potato beignet balls, AMAZING, boudin balls, AMAZING. Biscuits and gravy were great and others had fried chicken which was also outstanding. Pitchers of mimosas, what else could you ask for!!! There is also a great gift shop with tons of art and great items.

This is a tall claim and more than likely open to opinions. They are good. The bowl of fruit is actually a half bowl. The sausage gravy is loaded with sausage!!!! Very good. The hash browns are tasty, made from leftover baked potatoes. The bacon was disappointing. Wasn't crisp. Seemed like it had been microwaved.

I normally come here for the breakfast. Everything I have gotten here has been great including the hot chocolate. I would come here a lot as a child so I have history with this place. ( family owned) I rather Frank's than ihop any day.

We visited here as a family for a Sunday afternoon lunch and across the board the food was largely forgettable. We had a wide variety of items from the menu as there were three of us but the food was mostly processed and canned. Chicken fried steak and "BBQ" were not good. Will return and give them a try for... More

The biscuits were some of the best I have ever eaten. I have been to a lot of great biscuit places, like Loveless cafe in Nashville, and Frank's biscuits were better. The breakfast platters are very reasonably priced and was overstuffed with food. Will be back!

Very enjoyable breakfast restaurant. Sometimes crowded and noisy, but haven't ever had to wait more than about 15 minutes. Service is very good. Many choices for eggs and omelets. Especially like their sausage patties. Have to ask for their "Frank's seasoning" (similar to Tony's). If you want a morning pick-me-up, the Prairieville restaurant has an excellent Bloody Mary.

This place was busy for a Sunday morning. Plenty of parking, seated immediately. Service was excellent. Eggs were great, bacon and grits ok, but the biscuits... Oh my gosh. They were yummy. Gravy had body and tasted like what you'd expect a good white gravy to taste. Overall this was a very enjoyable breakfast.

I had the Philly cheesesteak sandwich, wife went with chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and mac n' cheese. Both were excellent, and the beef was particularly tasty. The mac 'n cheese was absolutely the best we've ever had!

Honkey Tonk, Red Neck, Call it what you want... But CALL IT! Because their people are AMAZINGLY sweet and in-your-face funny and hop to it, and the food is PLENTY and HEARTY! The 'gator sausage is the BEST I have had, and their BISCUITS are as big as your face! But so light and fluffy! Smother with butter and jam.... More
