Friendly owner greeted on arrival. During lunch hours, you order & pay for your meal at the counter, then find any open seat. Pricing ranges between $11-15 for most lunch specials. Very generous portions, great tasting as well. Conveniently located about five minutes away from Space Center Houston, also a favorite of Johnson Space Center (NASA) employees. Would recommend and...

I've eaten here for over 25 years and the people who work here love seeing happy smiles on the faces of there patrons. No telling what celebrity or Astronaut you may bump into here. They have a wall of fame from Tom Cruise to most all of the Astronauts. Everything is divine, tell Frankie I said so.

This is a small, family run place. We visited for lunch, ordered and paid at the counter, got our own drinks and then found our table. Salads and hot garlic bread were quickly delivered. The potions are very generous so if you don't have the ability to take away leftovers, you may want to consider sharing. The eggplant parmigiana was... More

whether coming to clear lake for vacation or business, not visit is complete without a stop at frenchies Italian. at lunch, you'll order from the counter by one of the owners, and at dinner, table service. both offer great food. some of the best Italian food in the area.

So, you can go to a big chain Italian restaurant where every dish on the menu is prepared precisely as it is in another restaurant in the chain halfway across the country. Or you can go to Frenchies. Frenchies has counter service for lunch, and sit-down dining for dinner. The lunch line is long, which tells you that it's probably... More

Frenchies is the best Italian food in Houston, flat out. I have been eating here since I was a little girl and the food quality has never diminished. The restaurant has a wonderful, fun atmosphere, and Frankie always makes you feel like family. You're missing out if you haven't ate here yet. For best prices go during lunch.

We were looking for a good Italian restaurant in Houston and came across Frenchie's in Clear Lake. No big deal from the outside, but we walked in and there it was: a piece of the island of Capri right by NASA. The food is by far the best Italian food we have ever had, even in Italy! Now we know...

Decided to go here for our 39th anniversary. So glad we did. We have lived in the Clear Lake area for 25 years and finally decided to try this place. We will definitely be back. A very fun atmosphere. We had a great waiter Scott. We started with the antipasto from the appetizer menu. I ordered the eggplant parm and... More

Every time I am in Houston this is where I go. It's the best Italian other than my mom's. The food and the service is outstanding.
