Did Frank’s have the best pizza?

We want pizza!  Most patrons went for the pizza.  Did you know about the steaks and seafood?  Many knew that, especially after seeing the advertisements.

If you have any images or menus from Frank’s to share please contact us.


Frank’s Restaurant and Lounge was located south of the Meadowdale Shopping Center, behind McDonald’s.  It was off Besinger Dr., near Illinois Route 25.  They were best known for their pizza, but, they also greatly advertised the steaks and seafood.  It was a classic Italian-American Restaurant.  It was also known as Frank’s Drive-In.

Please check out all of the great Frank’s Restaurant images and files from the past.
