Frank is a really neat spot and definitely worth checking out. The hot dogs are super tasty and they have a good beer selection as well. The staff we interacted with were all very nice and helpful. Frank also has a list of delicious milkshakes!

I was excited to find that they had a special of Cincinnati style chili on spaghetti with cheese. Heaven on earth. Good selection of beers as well. Had the Rueben fries too. Very tasty. Would like to come back for the dogs next time.

Frank is really cool. Lucked up and stopped there. The sausage is beyond description. The various ways they prepare it are inexplicably perfect. Waffle fries and great drink selections make it really great.
