We went over to Spokane for a little day trip and m fiance found Frank's Diner on Yelp with great reviews so we tried it out for an early dinner. The breakfast looked tempting, but we both ended up getting burgers and they were delicious!...More

Have been there a couple times, food is good, breakfast is great. Prices are ok, my only complaint is there is always a wait to be seated of at least 15 minutes because they're so busy. I guess this just shows how good it its...More

This is one of the places I stop by every visit to Spokane. Food is a little spendy, but quality makes it tolerable. Anticipate a 20 minute wait to be seated, so a quick meal is not likely.

Great food, great service. Very busy on Weekends, so best visited during the week. Huge portions, reasonably priced in a cool railroad atmosphere!

Franks has great breakfast food. Biscuits and gravy, omelettes, bacon. I also love that they have mimosas if you’re so inclined. We’ve eaten here a number of times and we’ve never left unsatisfied or hungry.

I enjoy all aspects of eating at this historic restaurant. The food is excellent, and is served by friendly conversational staff. I enjoy the historic nature of eating my breakfast in an old dining car, reminds me of a bi-gone era of the rail road.

Located in an old railroad car, Frank's was our kind of place: fun atmosphere, excellent servers and good food at fairly reasonable prices. We had to wait a while to get a booth, but it was worth it. A patty melt and hot turkey sandwich...More

Sunday mornings are the very busiest time at Frank's. If I were going to breakfast on Sunday morning, I might divert to Frank-e-doodles at Division and 3rd, Not as chic, but if you like you bacon crisp, they have the best... More
