This is a TINY place, actually old train car, and been expanded. CASH ONLY people. ATM on premises. Be prepared to wait, be squished, hear some sarcasm and have a feast of a breakfast. the garbage plate is HUGE ... hashbrowns, meat (you choose 1,2,3), eggs, green pepper and onion (Jalapeno optional) all mixed up w/your choice of four cheeses. Choice of toast .. pick their homemade on made w/yogurt. Sit at counter if you can. We had PRIMO view of grill. The gal working it is something else. She's quick efficient and knows what she's doing! All the workers work fast in tight quarters and work together. Guy seating you is full of sarcasm, dont' take offense. You will be bumped and brushed upon but just enjoy. They've HUGE pancakes as well, seriously as big as an entire dinner plate. Can get mimosas too and other drinks. Was featured on "diners, drive in and dives" w/Guy Fieri. It's worth wait. Can get 10% coupon on kenosha website. Try it as you wont' be disappointed. Doesn't look like much from outside but boy is this delicious breakfast. Think have lunch foods are well. Only open til about 2-3.

Franks Diner has been around for decades. I started coming here again. Previously the service was very political, you could walk in before other people and get served last. I understand regulars but sometimes the wait was toooo long. The food and the atmosphere is great!

A railcar converted to a working restaurtant. It is very small so except a wait during prime breakfast hours. They also have counter service for a good meal and quick chat. The service comes with a dont give a crap attitude but in the best possible way. It is part of the charm of this great place. The meal to get is the garbage plate. Eggs, meat, potatoes, veggies, cheese all cooked tomorrow with homemade sourdough bread. A meal fit for a King! We just cant get here enough.

OK. I decided to find this place, and it was worth it. It was not really packed with diners when we got there, and the servers were great. Loved the milkshakes. But the hash garbage plate I got was ever so slightly light on hash and flooded with potatoes. But it was a half plate and well worth the money. We'd go back. Nice people.
