The service is excellent. If your waitress happens to ask if you need a menu he or she is of the opinion that you have been there before and you know what you want. All the staff are very accommodating and will arrange any type of seating that is needed. It is a very warm and happy atmosphere. My son-in-law... More

Breakfast has always been very good , but atmosphere not good even for a breakfast place. Interior and exterior In need of some upgrades. If you can get past that you are good . Place is busy so I guess it's a home run

Don't be looking for the restaurant in the picture that is posted here. The building that Frank's Restaurant AKA Frank's Family Restaurant is in is shabby, gray and doesn't look very inviting. That doesn't mean it is a bad place, just that it is not what you'd expect for a restaurant, Frank's is diner type food in the best way... More

Frank's Family restaurant has a cozy environment with a basic value menu to suit the wallet of anyone. Breakfast starts at 6 am and the special is under 4$. This includes eggs home fries toast and coffee. Lunches and dinners are served Italuan style and the chicken parmigan is to die for. The wait staff is friendly.
