My complaint is they take forever... But I like the fried fish and clam strips. Portion size went down a lot but price goes up.

Went to the one in the shopping center on Scott Road. Same good food as all the others. We do dogs, fries, rings and clams and always well prepared. Love to support local businesses and they deserve it

Frankie’s is a traditional fast food hotdog and burger joint. Great flavor. Also has terrific fried seafood platters. Sometimes a little slow but overall it’s really good and the prices are average.

Frankie’s is the only place for hotdogs in Waterbury for years and years. So delicious! There are a few other items on the menu which are all very good but they are known for the DOG ........ Give one or two a try!

Frankie’s is a great environment for friends, family and most importantly; FOOD. Everything is made fresh to order which is totally appreciated. The food is tasty, hot and they have an extensive menu to choose from. We’ve also ordered catering via their food truck and...More
