This place is a treasure. The entry and interior harken back to days past. The menu is extensive, the wait staff is outstanding, prices are good and the portions are very large. This is truly a gem!

Frank's was highly recommended for breakfast so we tried it. Nice train car setting. But the food was a bit disappointing if you are into healthy eating. The food was very American diner food--not vegan friendly--and very heavy on grains and carbohydrates. Omelets quite predictable....More

The diner isn’t very big so I imagine there is often a line. The wait was worth it. The food is fantastic. The servers are top notch. The history is pretty interesting.

There’s a reason Franks is so popular, not only was breakfast spot on, the waitstaff was friendly & the train car setting is a fun experience!

We just took out of town company to breakfast at Frank's. The food was good, well cooked, and plentiful! Our company really loved the ambiance and great service. We did have to wait about 20 minutes, but it was worth it.
