The people there are So nice and helpful and the food is delicious!
Great little home town restaurant. Brings back memories of the good old days!
Best food in town no doubt, And I have a crush on just about any cute girl I see however the blonde working there is hands down the cutest girl around.
Best hotdog I've ever had and super friendly staff!!! Would give 6 stars - greetings from Spandau :)
Perfection. Great hotdog - we ordered the hot dog meal with all the toppings and fries. Fries are fresh sliced, not frozen. Hotdogs are slit open with cheese melted in the center. Toppings included onions, relish, mustard, ketchup, and ground burger meat, which was the perfect combo. Loved watching the grill chef cook the dogs and burgers. Great authentic atmosphere. I'm from St. Louis and Frank's Star Lunch reminded me a lot of the Italian family restaurants there in The Hill neighborhood. Frank's family is showcased in a photo vignette on the restaurant wall, dating back to 1920s. Thank you!
This is the best place to eat in Punxsy. By far. They make leaps and bounds for the customer. I wish I could give a 6/5
It doesn't look like much and honestly it isn't, however this place just has some good food! Frank's was recommended to us by a local celebrity, at least I think he is. Shingle Shaker, the official scroll reader for Punxsutawney Phil's Groundhog Day shenanigans told us about this local food establishment and I'm glad he did! It's located right in a corner, a somewhat confusing corner so don't get frustrated, pull in beside the building (Google didn't tell us that) and park. The entrance we used was on the side, in not sure if there is another entrance or not. As I said, it doesn't look like much. Just a few tables inside, seems a popular take out place though. They also have seating at the counter. You order at the cash register then find a place to sit and they bring out your food. Again, I took the Single Shaker's suggestion and ordered the loose cheeseburger with fries. Hubby ordered a double cheeseburger with fries. He would have preferred something else but they were out of any salads. Ok, so a loose cheeseburger is basically ground hamburger stuffed into a hot dog bun! The order comes with two, you can't order just one (that would have been my choice) but they are pretty delicious. They put a special family sauce on it, which is a tad sweet but good. It was a little weird because you are expecting a hot dog in a bun but instead it's burger! The buns are soft and yummy. Hubby said it reminded him of sloppy joe, he wasn't a fan but I, really liked it. His double was good and plenty for him. Our fries were good as well but I asked for them to be crispy, which they were not. The food comes out on the smallest paper plates necessary for the food to fit on! Thankfully there were napkins on the table to use, burger on the napkin and use the tiny plate for ketchup ?. The staff are friendly, especially the order taker at the register. While traveling I prefer local joints for eating and this was local and yummy! If you're in the Punxsutawney area be sure to so here for a loose cheeseburger!
Yum yum yum, the best sloppy chili cheese dog i had in a dogs age. The Dark Star burger was like biting into a cloud. A cloud saturated with delicious animal fat, cheese, bacon, sweet chopped onions,ketchup, mustard and love. Frank the namesake was cooking while i was here and he looks like a Frank.
