“Tasty food, great environment, good service. ”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

I had a bit trouble finding the place but it was worth visiting. Best hamburger I had in China, very tasty, good meat. The service was very good, very friendly people. Clean in general terms. Very clean for Chinese standards. And of course talking in English is always comfortable.

Hamburger 70 rmb
Sandwich 50 rmb
Beer 20-30 RMB.

They have foreign beer brands which is very nice after months drinking Chinese brands.

“Best Burger and American Bar in SZ!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Frankie's has the best burger in Shenzhen and the best, most friendly staff. Nate, Adam and the others always make you feel very welcome and at home. It is a great place for lunch or after work beers. Walking distance from Futian Free Trade Zone, just outside gate 4. I have not yet been there at night, since I live in Shekou, but I will give it a try one weekend night in the future.You can't go wrong with the boys from Virginia!

“feeling at home plus an excellent burger”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

Walking in to Frankie's after a day on the streets of Shenzhen feels like walking into my favorite sports bar back in Charlotte, NC. The staff comes complete with just that little hint of southern that promises good things to come. Set up to relax and watch sports or knock back a cold one, Frankie's delivers from the outset.
On this visit, I went for the highly touted Swiss mushroom burger. Excellent choice!!! Friends ordered other burgers from the menu and there were smiles all around as we dug in. Portion sizes were also reasonable, you will be full but not overwhelmed with too much bun.
Cigar room in back for those that want to have a toke after. The place has great ventilation keeping this room separate with good air filtering that prevents the smell from intruding on the main dining room.
Definitely recommend dropping buy if you get the chance. Please note, if you are not from the neighborhood it might be smart to take a taxi as the location is a little of the normal Metro track.

“Great tasty Burger...”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Mongolian beef burger, super tasty! Located near Futian economic zone, not the easiest to find so persist, get the map on your phone for the taxi driver...quite remote unless you are doing business inside the economic zone and nearby.
