Seems like nobody manages the workers , nobody to complain to. Might get good service maybe not. Long wait for pizza, long wait to pay. No one seems to care. Too bad it used to be a fun place to eat.

Gone downhill. Large pizza, little pizza in a large box. Last two times in the past two weeks. I guess customers are no longer important since business is so good... Or is it? Definitely my last visit.

I agree with the poor service. We visited Frank's a number of years ago, and it seems if you are not part of the "usual" crowd - you are more or less dismissed. I wanted to purchase a pasta dish (can't remember which one) and asked to

Super Great Pizza and Salad

I just had to visit this place since the reviews are off the chart good for the pizza and really want to see for myself how long was the wait for the pizza and how bad can the service be. Well let me tell you I ordered my pizza first and ask the great friendly waitress to put that order in and come right back to see me,,,well it worked pizza hot and yummy the deluxe special in 40 minutes, while we finished the soup and large anti pasta salad which was great. At 5 pm on a Thursday the place was filled with no seats left, you know that says something really interesting about a eating spot.
This pizza is a must try as one of the very best I've ever eaten and the pricing is affordable along with the really good service we received, I be a constant customer of there's for a long time.

Gets an average rating because the food is really good. As for the quality of service and friendless of the owner let's just say they are challenged. Warning they only take cash - no credit or debit cards.

Last nite my husband took me out for my birthday, when we pulled up in the back of the pizzeria they were 5 employees hanging out. We thought they were not busy, once inside we had to wait for 15 minutes for a seat. Order dinner right

I've seen some reviews saying Franks is dirty, which is simply not true. The place has been there for over 40 years and is JAM PACKED with people every day of the week. Doesn't seem like a dirty disgusting place would be full of customers all day every day. I'm not a one time visitor to Franks, I go there with my family every week to get a pepperoni pizza.

Moving on, Franks has the best crispy thin crust pizza Downriver bar none, and they use the small spicy pepperoni that curls up, it's hard to find that anywhere. The pizza is greasy but this is simply a product of using natural meats and cheeses, not that crap the chain pizza places use. If you like old school pizza with all natural ingredients, you want Franks. They are light on the pizza sauce which suits my tastes, and the sauce has a very natural flavor and is not overpowering.

The only drawback is that Franks is always very busy, and if you dine in it will take you between 30 and 45 minutes most nights to get a pizza, but you can have a few cold ones while you wait.

My insider tip: Franks is open until 9:30 during the week, so if you want to avoid the crowds I would suggest getting there at about 8:00. It is packed during the dinner hours between 5:00 and 8:00.

I give 5 stars for the pizza itself, would give the entire place 4 1/2 stars because the wait time can be a bit long.

Also, when I take my son we get a large pepperoni pizza with two sodas (free refills) for 13 bucks, can't beat that.

Pros: THE CRUST + they use the small spicy pepperoni that curls up

Cons: Wait time, usually very crowded inside during dinner hours.

The pizza was average, definetly not worth the wait (about an hour) and it was so greasy you don't need to order a drink. I seen 2 mice running along the wall and that was it for me. Eat at your own risk!

Dirty, dirty. Recently dined in and had a horrible experience. First off parking is ridiculous so good luck finding a spot. We sat for over an hour waiting for a large pepperoni pizza. The first bite I took had a green pepper, my wife found an onion on her slice. It was very greasy, which I do like, but the crust was like eating a cracker. As I went to the bathroom I seen a young man pick his nose and then continue to make a pizza w/o even wiping his finger. By the way the bathroom was disgusting. I ate here when I was younger and the quality definetly went downhill. SAVE YOUR MONEY and eat somewhere else.

The pizza used to be alot different. About 10 yrs ago they cheaped out on ingredients, changed the crust and the service went down the drain. Back when Frank was alive the quality was excellent then his kids took over and it all went downhill. Long wait time for carry-out (they tell you 45 min and you usually wait an hour in total). Very rude punk answers phone, kitchen is filthy and they reuse items other customers didn't use during their dinner. It used to be my favorite, now I get one about once or twice a year hoping for the taste I miss. I've been waiting almost a decade. Its such a shame that Franks kids and grandkids disrespected his name.

Good Pizza., be ready to wait.

Old bag at register is a nasty b***H.

She steals your pizza for carryouts 1st, makes eat ins wait. when you go to pay your bill, she takes carryouts first even if they just walked in the door!

She should be banished to kitchen,not customer friendly!

Tiny joint, no frills except a brew if you want one. Smoking section 5 feet from the non.no plastic or checks, the old broad at the register looks over you tab for 3 min. Like your a criminal, but all in all you can't beat the pizza! It is hands Down the best Downriver!

I have been going to Franks for many years. They have great pizza and italian dishes. The prices are very resonable and the servings are enough for 2 meals. I would recommend this restaurant to friends.

My fiance and I have lived in Wyandotte for 3 years and decided to try Frank's one night. First they do not take credit cards, but that was ok because there is an ATM right down the road. There were a lot of people there for a Tuesday night, and you can seat yourself. It was small, dark and pretty old - reminded me of a sit-in, hole in the wall Chinese restaurant. But still cozy like a little downtown pizzeria should be.

First we ordered a small antipasto salad which was big enough for 2 people but was still, I thought, quite pricey for what we got ($6.20 and there was hardly any salami or cheese on it, which is what makes it different from the much cheaper tossed salad). In contrast, we also got the pizza burger (pizza with cheese, ground beef, green peppers, and onions) and it was GREAT. The pizza was perfect - just a bit crispy, brought to us VERY hot - could barely bite into it, and I thought it was much better priced - $10 for a large (I think 10 or 12 pieces) and I've been eating leftovers for 2 lunches at work. My fiance complained that were wasn't enough sauce, but I liked it because I think places like Hungry Howies and LIttle Caesars use too much sauce. Good service, nice server.

Overall, I could see us going back for take out pizza -- no pricey salad and not sitting in since it was nothing special.

Franks does have good food. Be prepared to wait though. The place is always busy with people waiting to be seated or for orders to go. It is also usually smoky. The prices are reasonable too.

i have live in wyandotte for 30 years and have given franks a try about every 5 years to see if like. and 30 and counting, the pizza is ok but the last few times it has been overly greasy and burnt, i also has not been ready when i went to pick at the promised time(pick up because they do not deliver) also they do not take credit cards or to my surpise offer a take home menu to look over and hang on the fridge.

Pros: located in downtown, very large pizza vs chians same size

Cons: cash only, pick up only, wait time, lack of take home menus, very dark inside like a bar

Frank's has the best pizza around! I've been going here for pizza for as long as I can remember. My parents have been going to Franks since they were in high school in the mid 60's. My dad's best friend is from the downriver area, but has lived in Arizona for many years. When he comes to visit, the first place he goes to eat is at Frank's for one of the great pizza's!!

I've been going to Frank's for years, it's consistently excellent. The crust is awesome - thin, crispy where it needs to be, yet moist and chewy. Always the freshest ingredients, not loaded up with grease. Once you try Frank's pizza, you'll never look at the chain pizza places the same. If you want to look beyond the pizza, they serve great pastas and other things - this isn't a one dimensional restaraunt if you know what I mean. If its too crowded to get a seat, try R.P. McMurhphy's down the street, or Portofino's - the food at R.P.'s is excellent, but you might want to be dressed appropriatley to go to Portofino's. Downtown Wyandotte is a great dining destination that not too many people out of the Dowriver area realize, it has something to please everyone.

I believe the Pizza is complimented by two key features. One, the crust is thin and delicious. Two, the pepperoni is awesome. It's a very simple pizza that can't be beat in the Detroit area.

People go to Frank's for one reason: the pizza. This is pizza like it used to be before the chains killed it: cheesy, greasy, and delicious. I recommend the deluxe with extra cheese.

Frank's has been around forever, and so have some of its patrons! It fills up early, particularly on weekends, so call and get a pie or two to go. The interior comforts are no great shakes anyways. Eat the pie and enjoy!

I have tryed Franks twice for the benifit of a doubt, but while the Pizza was good the service was highly lacking. It took 40 minutes to get 2 slices of garlic bread and 45 minutes ontop of that to recieve the pizza the first time. The second time I called my order and tryed to pick it up an hour later, and still waited 40 minutes more. All though the pizza was tastey unless you like to wait I say remeber to call in your order, or go someplace else.
