“Interior is dreary”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The bartender had problems with first two gin tonics ordered, she was using either water or club soda, tast awful, sent it back. Had a good burger. Place not busy. I fear this iteration of restaurant at this location will not make it either. I've only lived here four years and this might be the 4th attempt at a resautant here. Lack of light inside, Need more windows

“Great Burgers and Fries”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

This is one of the tucked away places that you here about, it is in a strip shop that is hard to see if you are not looking. We stopped in for a quick dinner, had the Franks cheese burger and it is not a frozen paddy, but made fresh when you order it, can get it any way that you want. They also have daily specials as well. This is a great small place to eat.

“Great American food, services, and prices!”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

Frank's is tucked away in a little strip shop in Monkey Junction across from Walmart. We found it by accident after living here for 6 months, and have been back 3 times since then! The burgers are obviously made fresh daily, the cheesesteak is excellent, and they offer home-cooked specials daily. Seating is limited, but don't let that stop you. The servers are young but very energetic and attentive. Portions are good sized and the prices match. We actually went back twice in our first week of finding Frank's - the burgers are that good! If you're at the beach and want a break from the typical seafood experience, give it a try.
