“Fantastic in Every Way”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Franks deserves to be ranked higher than #6...

I have never gotten the same thing twice here. Everything I have tried has been awesome, from the fried green tomatoes to the corned beef hash. The service is extremely friendly, especially if you become a regular (which at this place is very easy to do). The staff works their butts off. The food is always served in a timely manner and everything has that homemade taste to it. They have options from small dishes to ones that will stuff you to the gills, with a lot of their plates offered in half and full portions. They have options for vegetarians which are fantastic as well.

The restaurant is a refurbished dining car from the Great Northern Railroad, so seating is limited to the counter, a two seat booth, or a four seat booth.

All in all I recommend everyone try Franks.

“My kids' favorite restaurant”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is where we head for birthday mornings and dates with mom or dad. The plates are big, the atmosphere is so fun on a real railroad car and the gravy/onion/cheese they put on hashbrowns make them incredible!

“Breakfast and service”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

So much personality. Good breakfast too! A small dine built in a rail car. Very extensive menu, covering meals for all times of the day.

“Historic Railroad Diner”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

To sit at the bar and visit with the cooks while watching your food be prepared is a great experience. Plus, if you like biscuits and sausage gravy along with chicken fried steak, well, you are in hog heaven.
