The fun begins at Franks! The fajitas were delicious, along with the vino, and the music was sing-a-long/dance-a-long!

Pizza is always good! Make sure if you are hungry to try the Zapatizer ... shrimp & cheese wrapped in bacon can be a meal itself. Very cold beer !!

We heard so many wonderful things about this place and being fellow Canadians, had to try it out. The first time we went was for drinks later in the evening and wasn't busy at all. We returned a couple of days later for dinner and to catch an NHL game. It was super busy and even though we would've preferred... More

Food excellent. Pizza oven pizzas to die for. Fish fillet & ribs also great. Frank meets customers with friendly welcome. Tables & chairs could be more comfortable but open air so that was nice. Lots of sports paraphernalia & TV's. Gets busy around 7:00 pm. We had music both times we visited. Would recommend.

We went there to watch the Jets game one night and ordered the wood fired pizza, based on previous reviews. The pizza was good (considering we were in Ixtapa), but then our friends were sitting facing the wood fire stove, and watched as Frank was cooking the pizzas and kept throwing cardboard in while the pizzas were cooking (apparently they...

Absolutely the best bar food. Prompt friendly service with most of the staff having pretty good English. Frank the owner is a great host and treats his staff very well . The baked potatoes are the best. Great seafood.

I like the location of Franks as it sits pretty much at the end of Ixtapa and its restaurants nicely tucked in a back corner. They have the best fire roasted pizzas but the rest of the menu is pretty plain but the service is great and staff speaks very good English if that's a concern.

Went there with a group of 9 for dinner and none of us were that impressed with our meals. I had the BBQ pizza and thought the flavor was bland. Another person had the stuffed shrimp and he thought the cheese overwhelmed the shrimp. We were in ate out 8 nights and weekends all thought it was our worse meal.

Description
This restaurant has excellent food and service. It has huge screen tv's for any game that you want to watch or just tv while you dine. It's also a great place to just have a drink with friends after the beach. My only complaint would be the manager there, she is very rude and mean to her employees in front of the customers. The food, servers are great and the service is A++.
