I have been spoiled by growing up in Kenosha where there is a large Italian population. We have several great pizza places there. Frank's Pizza would fit right in. The thin crust gets a bit over cooked at the edges but I just break it off and the rest is amazing! You can find cheaper pizza's out there but you... More

I have been in Appleton for more than 20 years and never gone here. Why did I wait so long? They have an awesome old pizza oven. They make great thin crust pizza. They have good toppings (great Pepperoni) and a pitcher of beer is dead cheep. The special comes with mushrooms about 3-4 inches deep on top. Very tasty,... More

Frank's is a very unique place. Full of 60 plus years of greatness. I knew when we walked in that we landed on a great place!Best tasting meal I had all week. Great flavor and freshness. After losing to the Badgers at lambeau, the people were so friendly and offered nice conversation. Truly great people and the waitress was so... More

Our first time trying this establishment. We normally frequent cranky pats in Neenah but we're in the area of this place and figured we would give it a try. Our waitress was very short from the start. When ordering we asked for garlic bread with cheese and she said we don't offer that but I can put cheese on the... More

Ordered a couple custom pizzas and pitchers of beer here. The deep dish pizza was pretty good, I added a ton of toppings that made it a little more pricey than I was expecting. It's a medium-sized establishment with what looks like an extra space for semi private group dining events. Service was great and the restaurant was clean.

I just had to check this place out again. Ate pizza here in 1987 quite a lot since it was the favorite pizza place of my guest parents. I loved it then and I am loving it now. Absolute recommendable, delicious pizza and friendly service. Everything such a place needs. Enjoy!!!!

Returned to Frank's with the family of 6 on a Friday night. Had 2 Frank's specials and a pepperoni/onion. Our server threw in a free garlic cheese bread since the specials take a little time to cook. You can never go wrong with Frank's. Still my favorite pizza in the world!

We have traveled extensively, including places around the world! Have had some great pizza but never as good as Frank's. I grew up in Appleton experiencing my first pizza at Frank and Pats in the early sixties. This is simply the best, period!

Ok I get it; Frank's is an institution in Appleton. You went there after the high school dance, you had your 8th birthday party there. It's nice and the pizza is very good but it has slipped on service and price. I don't get the weird half ripped in two guest checks. Can you just do like every place in... More
