Great location downtown Appleton! Franks has the best thin crust pizza ever. The staff are friendly and service is fast! I love that you can see your pizza being made - which is done to perfection down to the last toss. The location is perfect, and the cool fish tank in the entrance is an added bonus :)

Been going here since the late 60s and not much has changed, especially the food. It's always been excellent. For pizza, we always get the Frank's Special. It can't be beat!

Grew up in Appleton, have lived in NYC and Chicago, and Frank's is still my favorite pizza. Super thin, crispy crust and great sauce - love it!

Pizza here was awesome. Cooked in a vintage oven. Thin crisp crust and very tasty. The service however is sad. The staff delivered the pizza and then became distracted by large groups leaving our groups completely ignored. All this for a quite rich price. This is not a inexpensive pizzeria. Would I eat here again? Big maybe.....

Every time i visit my relatives in Appleton we will eat here at least every other day. Sometimes even as a late night snack. I love how they are so thin but yet so full of flavor. I've actually never had one any place else quite like it. Excellent - Cannot wait till i visit again.

Two 12 inch pizza's and 4 soda's for $46.00 plus tip? That was a lot. The pizza tasted good though. No free refills on soda either. That's a shame especially when you pay $1.79 for the first one. My elderly mother spilled her soda because of those ridiculously weird & large straws they give (macaroni noodles are they?). The wait... More

If you like Pizza Hut or Dominos, don't go to Frank's. However, if you love real pizza, you will be happy you came. The Frank's special is amazing!

I've lived in Appleton all my life and have been to Franks' many times. I've been hungry for one of the beef sandwich's, which I haven't had in many years, so we went there last night. We went early, around 5 o'clock, and not many people in the restaurant. My wife and I both ordered the beef sandwich and the... More
