What a Great landmark place to go for breakfast. I don't get there often enough. Great food fun staff always packed. Garbage plate with homemade toast is the bomb.

Love this place! In an old train car so lots of nostalgia. Took my 3 kids and everyone loved the food. Close to the museums and pretty lakefront. It can be busy but worth the wait!

Fun place for breakfast or lunch. Ordered the Garbage plate on my first visit, to good not to finish it. I was so full, I didn't eat for the rest of the day.

Nothing fancy about Franks. It's inside an old diner car and has been there for over 80 years. We had five hungry guys at lunch and they left stuffed and the bill was only $50.00. Everything was great and the food was hot! If you are in the area you must visit.

I've been hearing about this place for years from my family that lives in WI. So on my last trip, my sister and brother-in-law took me to eat. This place was just off the chart good. Comfort food at it's finest. All I can say is come hungry and bring cash and your sense of humor too. The servers are... More

I have never had a bad experience at Frank's Diner. The food is always delicious (I always get the garbage plate) and the staff makes it fun. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone either living in the area or visiting.

Great breakfast with a unique atmosphere and customer relations. Not for the serious diner. Well worth the visit.

This place is a true original. I tiny box car type of diner with the grill open to all to see. The staff is super efficient and friendly when they have the time to be. The food just can't be beat. Everything is gigantic portions, so go hungry. I once ordered a cinnamon roll which was a size of a... More

I have been going to Frank's diner, since I was a little girl. It's the same great food with the same great service. They are make it fun and it's always interesting looking around at all the history of the diner on the walls.
