Good for a quick bite....hotdogs, burgers, fries, etc. You order at the counter and eat inside or out. Frank's has been around for a very long time. Kids love it!

Fast service and a full sandwich menu. Know how to take your order, and are ready to fill it to your specifications.

I rate their chili dog as very good, not the best I've ever had, far from it, but the meat was tasty enough, and the chili was suitably spicy and flavorful. What made it very good was the use of fresh San Luis Obispo County...More
