Description: This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.

We were drawn in by the fact that Frank is Canadian and therefore expected food of that standard. I ordered two appetizers as my dinner, potatoe skins which came as thin slices of potato, like scalloped potatoes, they were very greasy and tasteless. I also ordered the fried calamari which was not fried but was baked in cheese and was very hard to find in amongst the cheese, the portion was very small. My husband ordered the ribs with fries, the ribs were very good, but fries were not cooked and totally mushy. The bathrooms were a disgrace, the women's had the toilet sit hanging off and the men's had the plumbing hanging by a thread with a bucket underneath. Shame on a Canadian restaurateur to be presenting such standards. The prices were every high for what you were getting before the quality was even taken into account. There are many good restaurants in the plaza, take your money elsewhere

A little hard to find behind the mall in Ixtapa, but Frank's is the place to go if you want a little bit of home back. The pizza oven is incredible and Frank is such a great host. Our favorite place to watch ANY SuperBowl!!! ANYWHERE

After being in Ixtapa 4 years running we decided to eat out at Franks since we were on a 2 week vacation and a little tired of buffet food. We had heard that Franks was great for pizza and just had not taken the time to stop. Boy was that a bad choice. We did not know what we were missing. The zappitizer is simply amazing.It is shrimp wrapped in cheese, wrapped in bacon, then baked in a wood fired oven. You can also get it as a meal, Amazing Shrimp. It is a little pricey but take a good look at the restaurants that cater to the tourist and not the locals. This is no pricier than good food at home. The pizza was very good but the shrimp is to die for. I would find it difficult to believe that anyone gets bad service here as Frank is out and about and we were there at a very busy time. Frank has a great restaurant and a good story. The crew from Wisconsin thought Franks amazing.
