“A FEW SANDWICHES DONE ON THE CHEAP”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

Be aware that this place only serves 4 types of subs.
They are meatball, hot sausage, foot-long hot dogs & kielbasa.
The subs are $3.50 each, with extras costing an additional
$0.25 each. These extras include chili sauce and a few
other choices. The subs are very good for the price. I usually
eat here about twice a month. It is best to get your food to go.

“You can't beat the sandwiches from this little hole-in-the-wall place!”
Reviewed 12 June 2012

Let's be clear: Frankie's is not a dining experience. There is no ambiance. The decor, as it is, is unchanged since the 1980's. Service if efficient, sometimes friendly and limited. But the sandwhiches are as delicious as they come. And at only $3.50 a piece, they are a steal. If you want a great sandwhich to go, this is the place to stop.

“Mixed Emotions”
Reviewed 3 May 2010

I've been going to Frankie's off and on for 45+ years. One side of the wall is a bar, the other the sandwich counter and there's a back room with about 6-8 tables. Very big on take-out orders. It would easily qualify as a hole-in-wall dive, but I've never heard of anyone getting food poisoning from their food. As for the food, I'm a hot sausage sandwich junkie and I have mixed emotions. Their Italian-bread rolls are excellent. The onions (peppers?) and the sauce they're in are super-tasty. (Also get a little of their red meatball sauce on a sausage sandwich.) My issue is with the quality of the sausage itself, which is somewhat mealy-tasting and doesn't have the consistency of a of a better-quality Italian sausage link. Nonetheless, it's still a good sandwich, a good value, and the counter gals couldn't be nicer. P.S. I assume their hot dogs and meatball sandwiches must be good as I see many ordering them. P.S. II Expect that your clothes and hair will carry the Frankie's ambient odor all day! (-:
