“Great for the kids and adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

This place is great for the family. It's fun and right on the water. The food is okay but that's not the point of this place. We go here 4 or 5 times a season. It's great time with the family or a romantic walk along the grand

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

It's a very nice, small take-out stand next to the river. Eat outside at one of their picnic tables. The Blue Cheese dog is very tasty.

“Walk to the River for the best seating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

I have taken coworkers visiting from out of town, my kids, friends and my 88yr old Dad to L.A Franks and have yet to have a disappointing time or meal.

Sure, it's hotdogs...that is why it is called L.A. Franks....enjoy a chili dog, share a plate of fries and have a brain freeze with lemonade or go full out and have a milkshake.

Not hungry for a meal, enjoy an ice cream cone .

You cannot top the view, walk over the little bridge and find the seats by the river, take a stroll down the walk way, or enjoy people watching as people from all walks of life and ages smile, laugh and enjoy an outdoor meal.

One day, two auditors from out-of-town were at L.A. Franks with me, enjoying a lovely summer lunch. The one auditor's hair was perfect. A bird decided to fly by and drop a load on her hair. You know, there is little you can do in that situation but start to laugh, and it has been our go-to discussion with much laughter about the classy restaurants that I take guests to -- and everyone wants to go.

Enjoy this place for what it is. A fun hotdog place, with friendly service, a lovely view, and something different.

“yum yum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

A great place to go to eat or have an ice cream on a nice summer's day. You are next to the Grand, where you can walk the walkway, go down to the water and simply lay back and relax at the outdoor atrium.

“Wonderful summer spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

A great casual spot for burgers and/or ice cream with the family. The weather has to be co-operating, since all of the seating is outdoors, but on a sunny evening it is lovely by the Mill Race.
