We were mini road tripping to pass the time and drove into Kenosha. We stopped at this little gem. Great burger (stuffed with blue cheese). Sons had French toad with home made bread. Great service.

The building and atmosphere were no indications of the "real" foods served at Frank's Diner. The four of us shared a cinnamon bun for starters, delish! The food was served in record time and it was delicious. One fellow sitting outside said "it is worth the wait" and he was right!

An old railroad car converted to a diner. Small dining area, but that's part of the great atmosphere. By far, the garbage plate is what put Franks on the map. Right downton near the lake with a fantastic breakfast. Can't ask for more.

Such a neat experience in a neat setting. An old railroad car, dating back to the 1920's, a breakfast menu that will blow your mind, crazy staff to highlight the day and affordable. Be patient, be prepared to wait, be prepared to be amazed by the food. Their shirts - "order what you want, eat what you get" - so... More

Saturday breakfast. Crowded but worth the wait. Delicious pumpkin pancake and at $4! Friendly, sarcastic, humorous staff. Original dining car, very authentic. Plus tequila shot on them!

Take a walk in the past. This little diner is a part of history brought to Kenosha. It is truly unique. The diner was brought here from out east on a train and moved to the spot it sits by horse and cart. The original diner is still there. They did add on to it without changing the original. It...
