My husband and I ate here on a Friday night! The bread and Italian spiced oil is amazingly good. I ordered Parmesan chicken and although the taste was good, the chicken was very rubbery like it was precooked and had been in the microwave too...More

I’ve never had a bad meal at Franks. I generally take half of my meal home for the next day since I fill up on their delicious bread.

Everything is homemade, pizzas are so bug they won't fit on the table. This is the absolute best Italian food#

Frank's Italian food is pretty good. The menu has lots of choices, although I tend to order the same entrée each time I go. Fettuccine Alfredo is my favorite. It's not the best at Frank's, but it certainly beats Olive Garden!

We went back to Frank's after about a year. It is still very good. In fact, it was the best meal of our recent trip to Branson and that includes some expensive places. We eat at Pete's place in Krebs, Oklahoma and have for over...More

Italian is not my favorite, but this restaurant is fantastic! My favorite dish is the Chicken Siciliano! Chicken sauteed in butter, lemon sauce, with artichoke and smothered in capers. It is a very rich and tasty dish!
