    The food here is fantastic so don't let the humble look of the building fool you. Service was top … More notch, friendly, unobtrusive, and knowledgeable. Waitress handled our special order with grace and kitchen knocked all the dishes out of the pack. Portions are amazingly generous!

    Frank's is a very good restaurant service is great and friendly the food I think is wonderful the … More amount you receive is more than one person eat. If you have not tried them you should it a very good restaurant.
