During a visit home to Mundelein from Colorado, we always make a stop at Frank’s for tasty tasty wings by the pound. Super friendly staff and the food is reliably delicious. The onion rings and curly fries are good, too.

It is hard to try anything else on the menu because the Wings are outstanding. Nice family run business.
