This is very popular with the locals of Mendocino. They are always very busy, and it took quite a while for me to get my food. The pizza and shakes are very good and I can see why people return. I definitely recommend it to...More

This visit we were after ice cream, but you can have lunch or dinner from a varied menu. The pizza is what Frankie's is all about, but there are other ways to go. The employees reflect the Mendocino laid-back vibe, but service is good.

Great homemade fresh ice cream and sandwich shop in historical Mendocino. Cone or cup with multiple flavors to meet everyone's taste buds. Parking nervy can be a challenge on a busy holiday weekend but with effort parking can be found.

The pizza changes everyday....we ate here twice for lunch because it was so good. Has a small outside place to sit. Pizza crust is wonderful, thin and very tasty. Milk shakes made from the ice cream that one can buy there also.

We stopped in twice, as the ice cream was so good. They had a local flavor we'd not heard of before, candy cap mushroom put into vanilla ice cream. That was pretty good, a little savory in with the sweet calm of vanilla. (Their peanut...More

Frankie's is a must visit place in Mendocino. Our family loved both the pizza and the ice cream. This place was bustling and popular and we'll be back for sure next time we're in Mendocino!

This establishment is in a high traffic area so I was certain that the ice cream would not be frosted. And I was not disappointed. The flavor and texture were spot on and waffle cone was fresh. My party also had a salad and sandwich...More
