“Best Dogs”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Great selection of Hot Dogs and Hamburgers, crowded when we went, but service was quick. And just a short walk to our room.

“Good ol Hot Dogs!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Every hotdog you can imagine is made at Frank's; good beef, good fries and very nice onion rings! :-) Lots of college kids work here; Frank's is great at supporting the community. I've never had a bad DOG at Frank's - Local hangout.

“What???”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

No, by far the worst Polish and chili dog ever!
Cold, and felt like they had so many leftovers that they reheated the dogs.
Will not be back.

“time warp”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

favorite of locals of all ages-absolutely no atmosphere, just very tasty food and amazing prices. still haven't made it early enough for breakfast, but i never get tired of their mushroom turkey burger. extremely casual-order at the counter, eat inside or out, among the parked cars!
