Reach wood, inviting dining car and varied menu. Sit at the counter and watch the food prep, your appetite will build. I enjoyed a wonderful soup and salad combination, called endless. Delicious choice for a hot day, great local following.

Great food, great service, great decor! Really impressed by management's dedication to purchasing local and to providing their employees with a living wage. Will definitely dine there again when traveling through town.

We stopped at Frank's for Friday brunch after a long morning of air travel, and we were NOT disappointed. We had to wait about 25 minutes for a seat, which our waiter said was not unusual, and we sat at the counter. This turned out...More

Spicy Fiesta was fabulous. Lots of jalapeños. Hash browns need to be requested crispy throughout. I'd pass on the biscuits and gravy and request the silver dollar pancakes instead. Fabulous service from our waitress Gage!!

Sunday mornings are the very busiest time at Frank's. If I were going to breakfast on Sunday morning, I might divert to Frank-e-doodles at Division and 3rd, Not as chic, but if you like you bacon crisp, they have the best... More
