I had to go to Kenosha to give a lecture and left early so I could get into Franks Diner for breakfast. Many interesting things on the menu like garbage pails and other strange items. I went for the traditional eggs and toast and great coffee. This place has history dating back to the 1930's. Service was great and food... More

OK, I love diners, and this sure looks like one. You can smell the grease from the grill literally two or three blocks away. Huge crowds, even on a weekday. The locals love it. The servings are huge, especially the Garbage Plates. But expect to stand in line, and don't expect the folks behind the counter to answer your questions.... More

This place is what so many hip restaurants strive to be. We went on a weekday at an off time and had no trouble finding seats at the counter even though the diner is small. People wanting a booth had to wait a short time. I understand that on weekends and prime breakfast times there can be long waits. Stick... More

Love this place! In an old train car so lots of nostalgia. Took my 3 kids and everyone loved the food. Close to the museums and pretty lakefront. It can be busy but worth the wait!

Fun place for breakfast or lunch. Ordered the Garbage plate on my first visit, to good not to finish it. I was so full, I didn't eat for the rest of the day.

Nothing fancy about Franks. It's inside an old diner car and has been there for over 80 years. We had five hungry guys at lunch and they left stuffed and the bill was only $50.00. Everything was great and the food was hot! If you are in the area you must visit.

***CASH ONLY*** so make sure you have it in advance! Great place to eat in Kenosha. Quiet little city, but this place was hoppin'! Very friendly environment and great service. Everyone is attentive and in a great mood. Food is delicious, I was on the fence about what I wanted, ended up getting the garbage plate. Best choice I made... More

I've been hearing about this place for years from my family that lives in WI. So on my last trip, my sister and brother-in-law took me to eat. This place was just off the chart good. Comfort food at it's finest. All I can say is come hungry and bring cash and your sense of humor too. The servers are... More

I have never had a bad experience at Frank's Diner. The food is always delicious (I always get the garbage plate) and the staff makes it fun. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone either living in the area or visiting.
