We have been eating at Frank's for about twenty five years now. In the past, the lines would be out the door, you would have to give your name and wait for a table. All those days are gone now and it is obvious why. Frank's was always known for LARGE portions and great home made soup. The owner is now cutting corners so, that the soup is plain water, only luke warm, and the large portions of Chicken Parm that Frank's was known for, have now shrunk to almost half the size they were. When we went we always lately had to bring along some chicken bullion to add to our soup. Sandwiches are also not a good choice since the meat is rationed out and an Italian Hoagie that used to be great, now only has one slice of each lunch meat, making it a bread sandwich. A tossed salad is also rationed out to one piece of tomato, one thin slice of cucumber, etc. The owner makes the waitresses take the tossed salad into the kitchen to ask the cook for a slice of tomato to make sure they don't give out more than one. If you plan on using the coupons that the owner puts in the Northeast times or on his own website for Frank's, you must pay with cash only since he does not want to pay the credit card company's fee. Also you must have the coupon from the website printed out or he won't accept it from your phone. Yes, that is how bad it has become at Franks. It is a shame since it was always a nice place to eat. The help is always upset since the owner is constantly hounding them in front of the customers. I feel sorry for them. The owner is not Italian, he is Greek. Don't waste your money or time going to Franks. The prices are very high considering the quality and portions. The owner is not taking the interest that he once did, and cutting corners is certainly not the way to go.
The food was OK as far as the flavor of it, the best part about the food was that it was nice and hot. The wait for your food is extremely long u shouldn't have to wait 1hr for 2 or 3 platters. The platters were also a little pricey, If the ambiance and customers service matched the food I probably wouldn't had a issue with the price.The young ladies behind the counter are OK they lack customer service etiquette, especially when answering the phones. I hate to say this but they're kind of ghetto in the restaurant, but so is the owner. She (the owner) uses profanity entirely to much, especially in front of her customers and on her personal social media account which she advertises her business on. Had I seen that before I went to her restaurant I would not have went. Just because your in the heart of the hood doesn't mean you have to run your business as such.
Really not one person left a review? Well I am not the one to write a review for good service and or food,or yet even write a bad review from a bad experience. But I do feel the need to leave a review for this place. They go up and beyond great customer service,prices,selection It is listed here as a restaurant,which is only half true,they are an entire store as well. Great hours as well,super speedy delivery,and they will bring anything the store has if asked. Need cat food and just don't feel like moving,just want to orde some grub and watch tv,no problem they will bring it with your meal,cigs? Not a problem just have your ID ready. Not going to mention the menu,its very large and everything i have had was perfect if not damn near. No body is perfect, but This place is the closest you will ever see.
Original Village has possibly the most delicious pizza in the area. I am always surprised about how cheap it is. I used to be a chef at a prestigious, expensive Bucks County restaurant, so I know what I am talking about. Yeah, their tomato sauce comes from a can, but that happens at every local pizzeria. Original's other food ranges from mediocre to excellent. I give Original Village five stars overall for food, service, and prices, but only three stars for atmosphere. Call in advance so that you do not have to wait 30 minutes. Italian food takes a long time to make! Other great pizza joints are Vince's, Charlie's, and Santucci's.
I have lived in the neighborhood for 6 years and this remains one of my top restaurants in the area. When I introduced my, now wife, to Angelino's, it immediately became her favorite place. When our friends are over, it's one of the first places they request when we decide to order pizza and wings. It's also one of our favorite local BYO. Their prices are great, their homemade Italian food is delicious, and they even have small jazz bands there on occasion. We're moving out of the neighborhood soon and we will miss this place. If you haven't already, give Angelino's a try, it's a neighborhood gem.
This is our favorite delivery restaurant in the neighborhood. Their pizza is really good, especially if you like pizza with thinner crusts. My wife loves their tuna salad. It's fresh, not too much mayonnaise, and they give you a lot for what you pay. Being a frequent customer, I asked them a while ago what the owner would recommend. The girl behind the counter said their oven baked rustic sandwiches. She wasn't kidding. I tried two of them and they were both amazing. The delivery guy is really friend, and their delivery is the fastest out of all places we order from.
