We've been faithful Franks customers for years, and it is by far the best food around. You may be initially turned off bc it's connected to a gas station, but once you're inside you quickly forget. The prices may seem a little high until you get your food and you realize that it's so much you'll have lunch the next day. I'm torn between the homemade soup and the desserts as my favorites. I honestly can't say enough about Franks!

Because of the location and outside appearance this is a restaurant you'd never stop at if someone didn't tell you to but believe me, you want to stop.
The food is fabulous and the desserts, staring you in the eye as you walk in, are to die for! The only hard part is choosing which one.
I especially love their spinach pie, flaky and filled with lucousness. When it's paired with the greek salad it's the perfect combination.

Have been eating at Frank's for almost 20 years and have never been let down. Haven't tried everything but I have had a lot (sometimes during one visit). Sandwiches, Pasta, Entrees, Soup. Great Italian spot with southern hospitality.

Good menu to choose from; lots of selections. Would definitely eat here again when in the area. Has one of the best Greek salads I have ever had. Food portions are large you may want to share a meal.

And what a perfect night!! After meeting with the restaurant manager discussing my wishes for the evening, all I had to do was relax and leave things to her confident expertise--and that's saying ALOT for a self professed perfectionist!!! Frank's unique location (next to a gas station) really threw our guests at first but once they stepped into the banquet room is had been transferred into an elegant affair. The service was attentive,personal, and timely to each member of our large party. And when the food came, as always, it was served hot and delicious. We even saw a little bit of sharing going on as each guest declared theirs was the best and it became a taste tasting! The men quickly agreed it was the grilled pork chops for them. The women were still hotly debating whether it was the lasagna or chicken parmesan... the outcome of this argument is to be settled next year on the couples first anniversary when all will gather again!! It was a fantastic experience for one and all leaving Frank's with many new avid fans and the hosts of the celebration excited that everyone had such a good time and loved discovering the charm of Frank's.
