Frank's diner is a must for all foodies and history buffs alike! The actual rail car is kept beautifully. Everything is very clean and shiny. And the food! From the grilled biscuits to the perfect hash browns, everything in between was scrumptious. Perfectly cooked and...More

Building is authenric, excellent service and too much food! You can tell that the employees really enjoy working there. Get there early as there is a wait, but you don't wait long for your meal!

Definitely worth the wait! Excellent breakfast, friendly and efficient wait staff. Not the best for a group, but perfect for two or three.

Can never seem to branch out and try something different on the menu.. Chix fried steak is amazing.... Huge and amazing!! I have only one constructive criticism, I wish all the plates were warmed. Eggs and gravy get cold quickly.

Forget the wait, it is worth it! Had breakfast in this train diner and it was the best! They're cooking in front of you and it is a true diner with good food! Well worth a visit!

The ad shows a burger, but Frank's is at its best for Breakfast. Expect a wait (short on Saturday, long on Sunday) because of Dining Car history, but the wait is worth it!

Sunday mornings are the very busiest time at Frank's. If I were going to breakfast on Sunday morning, I might divert to Frank-e-doodles at Division and 3rd, Not as chic, but if you like you bacon crisp, they have the best... More
