What a unique find. A beautiful restored railroad car. You can eat at the counter or booths. Staff was friendly and good service. Roast Beef sandwich was tender & tasty. Seemed like other tables were eating a bountiful breakfast. Definitely make a stop at Frank's...More

I’ve been here twice for breakfast and it was so yummy. Gotta get the loaded hash browns ( gravy & grilled onions). Can’t wait to try the other items on the menu.

Went for lunch on a Friday and was pleased to find there wasn’t much of a line (though parking was a nightmare). Food was good, pretty standard stuff, though fries were extra tasty. The part that really stood out besides it being in a train...More

The food was good, we are foodie types and walked in with high expectations based on the reviews. The staff (waitress, buser, and a manager). The food for us would be a 3.5, but the staff made it a 4. I would dine again. I...More

This is a lovely, quaint location with very friendly and competent employees. There was a wait even on a Monday in March, but they have a heated outside area with coffee to keep you comfortable. There were many things on the menu that looked great,...More

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
