I don't know what the big deal is. Their food is overpriced and use frozen seafood. Portions are small. The hot dogs are all right but I grill better ones.

It wouldn't be summer without Frankie'e on the Ave. Although dogs are their mainstay they have everything to temp your appetite from clam strips to fried cheese. Worth a stop. No inside seating - picnic seating only.

I've been eating at Frankie's for as long as I can remember. Everything their restaurants serve is great. The available condiments for your hotdogs are very good - I especially enjoy the pepper relish. You won't be disappointed.
