I work in Zeeland and have for like 25 years, Franks has been there forever and I have eaten a few burgers there over the years. Cool little slice of Americana that hasn't changed. Food is simple and pure midwest American delicious. Go, pour your own coffee and fit right in.

Great mom and pop restaurant for burgers and fries! I've also had their omelets for breakfast, which were great! Do not forget to bring cash!

Franks is a great place to go if you are looking for a good ole hamburger and fries. Good food but cash or check only. No credit cards.

This is not a typical restaurant, but it is warm, friendly and go there a few times and everyone may know your name without having to go to Cheers in Boston! It's been around for ever and you can get a reasonably priced good ol' greasy hamburger and fries and soft drink; the kind you used to get back in... More

So why did I put it as average? Because you have to love the place to even think about going there. The food is over priced, the atmopshere is loud at times and filled with locals - which is a plus. The staff is nice but not really there to keep you coming back, its become a part of so... More

A friend and I ate here as it's know for its hamburgers. We both had them and felt they were average and a bit greasy. I had an olive burger and not sure if the mayo/sauce the olives were in had been at room temperature too long. Busy local eatery in Zeeland. You order off a menu and doesn't take... More

I had the BLT in a wrap and it was absolutely amazing. My boyfriend and his mother both had been there many time and had the burgers! We also had the fried pickles, super yummy. Myself from a city absolutely loved the small town diner, very well ran and amazing food. I am definitely making the trip back.
