“Best dogs & seafood in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

We have been going to the original site for generations. Fried seafood is always super fresh. They now sell their famous hot dog relish retail in select locations. Our out of town picnic guests as impressed..

“Best dogs and burgers on earth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

I have gone to the Frankie's on Watertown Avenue for years (the one pictured here is on Chase Avenue). There's no indoor seating (unlike the Chase Avenue location), so you sit in your car and enjoy the food. I defy anyone to find better hot dogs and burgers anywhere! Frankie's are the best!!! Their lobster rolls are awesome, too. You may have to wait a few minutes, because everything is made to order, unlike the fast food chains. Go there once and you'll be hooked.

“Frankie's Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Everything was great: the food, service, and ambience. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and the bun was fresh from the bakery (or somewhere) and literally melted in my mouth. The hot dogs looked good too, and the onion rings are to die for. The place is tiny and decorated with a little bit of everything. Frankie's is a great place to go when you just want to chill and grab a bite to eat.
