Busy lunch place for downtown workers. Quick hot meals available, but the portions are rather small for the price, and it's just ordinary food, definitely not gourmet.

Franke's Cafeteria has a lot of wonderful food to choose from. Their prices are very reasonable. We took our exchange student there and between her, my husband, and myself, the table was full of food. She said she had never seen so much food in her life. We go there quite often.

I grew up on Franke's, but hadn't eaten there in a decade. The vegetables, bread and pie were as great as ever. The roast beef was good. However, the service was a bit poor. We had to ask for ice tea and butter. There was also no one there for a few minutes to get us our bill. However, once... More

This once stellar establishment serves up less consistent quality than in past years. While we went for Sunday lunch for years, we only visit for take-out now. Even a recent take-out yielded a hard, undercooked baked potato which I halved and it still required four minutes in the microwave! But for variety and portions, it is a great value if... More

A 'meat and 3' is one of my favorites, but a 'meat and 2' is just fine as well. Good, well prepared food: baked chicken, greens, real mashed potatoes, coconut cream pie, roast beef (pot roast?), boiled reds, rolls, all so good. My husband and I really enjoyed it and were able to skip dinner, always a good thing when... More

Frankie's has been around forever and if your looking for that quick cafeteria home cooking Frankie's is the place. Always fresh and always good, a local favorite, with good reason. I always get the fresh carved roast beef, which is always full of flavor and always moist. and I always top my meal off with a piece of custard pie...now... More

My family and I ate there this past Sunday and we found the salad's cold the entrees' hot and the ice tea plentiful. Vegetables could use a little more seasoning, in particular turnip greens, mac and cheese. There use to be a hostess who would come around and keep the tea and water full but I guess this service is... More

Frank's can have very good food. Tonight I had smothered steak and it was terrific. I had two veggies and they were pretty good. My roll was dry, stale and cold. The line servers were talking amongst themselves that several in the party thought they were talking to us and asked empty, clueless faces to repeat themselves. Once in the... More
