We checked this place out on a Friday evening. We found it too cramped. The only reason we even went was to try their "Sicilian" pizza - it is not available on Fridays. We wound up getting two (2) orders of Spaghetti and Meatball dinners with added Mushrooms and Garlic Bread. The spaghetti was overcooked and had no taste, the sauce tasted like it was straight out of a can - zero taste. The meatballs were the consistency of meatloaf (wtf?), I had to drown the whole thing with Oregano, Parmesan cheese (that had no taste and tons of salt). The "garlic bread" was nothing more than a white sub roll with butter slathered on it...we had to kill that with salt too, as it had no taste. The mushrooms was served when we were just about done. Ordered a Large Pizza to go ($22 and some change) - hate to say it, but we were not impressed with it either. Whoever calls this "NY Pizza" has never been to friggin' NY. :/

If you really want authentic New York style pizza then this is your place. Has been at it's location for 40 years but I had never heard of it until I saw the ratings. Location is not upscale but well worth going to. I only have had the pizza but reviews say all the food is great.

Frank's is great. Has withstood the test of time in its Longview location. Good sandwiches but the pizza and past is great. Baked spaghetti is my go to dish. Great sauce and cheese comes with either a salad or soup along with delicious bread.

Have been there several times in the past year. The food, well to be honest, would only be better if they delivered it on a silver platter. They only use the freshest of vestables. The dough on a pizza is to kill for. Service is excellent. Usually get food from scratch within 15 minutes.

Introduced co-workers to Frank's and we are having pizza again in less than a month! I'm from New England and we know our pizza. Sweet crust, dough not too thick and sliced sausage to die for. We get one large pepperoni and one large sausage. This is not NY pizza, it is Italian pizza. There is a difference.
