I ordered stuffed hot peppers had hair in my food also ordered pasta vodka that also had hair the one waitress tried to show me a rag they use to wipe the plates with and that it came from that but the rag was WHITE and the hair was BLACK she then brought out 2 different seasonings they use OREGANO and parcely trying to justify that the little pieces can look like hair because of the sticks. I’m pretty sure I know the difference between a stick and a piece of hair. Also there was a waiter walking around with a huge HICKEY on his neck that was visible from a mile away not to mention seeing 2 bus boys with their pants half pass their ASS! DEFINITELY WONT BE GOING BACK THERE TO EAT! All I got for my inconvenience was 3 cannolis and a $93.00 bill
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I used to go there at least once a month. Not any more.
Every time we go there, the service gets slower. The quality of their food has dropped as well. The portions are still big, but not nearly as good anymore. I would give it an average at best.
I won't likely go back there too soon,

Frank's is a Buffalo classic. The food is always good, the portions huge (which doesn't mean stuff yourself, it means have leftovers all weekend). The atmosphere is great for families or groups, but the place doesn't have a very cozy or romantic feel. Parking isn't a problem, either - to the left of the building (as you face it from Delaware Ave), there's a small lot with a bunch of extra spaces that are almost always empty because no one knows about them. The Sicilian pizza is great. One note: the takeout food can be a little hit-or-miss. They usually have great, saucy, crisp wings, but sometimes they are weak or soggy, and sometimes they skimp on the meat and cheese in subs. Guess it depends who's working that night.

I don't understand the one negative review of Frank's.... it sounds like one of those uppity italian food afficionados who like gross delicacies that people only eat to one up themselves on others. Frank's is what Buffalo italian food is all about. It's saucey, they're large portions, and everything is expected to be delicious. The sauce is a sweeter sauce, but the crowd on Friday nights is evidence to it's hit-factor in Buffalo over the years. The alfredo is excellent as well-- not too creamy and not watered down. The tortellini alfredo comes with SO MANY TORTELLINIS.... If you're hungry and in the mood for homey family italian, come to Frank's!

I have a friend whose father is from Italy: the father serves lovely, al dente spaghetti with ONE meatball and a VERY LIGHTLY SAUCED plate.
Differently, at Frank's, I haven't had such bad, overcooked Italian food since I lived with my mother. Who was not Italian.
No question why incredibly huge people eat here. The servings are enough for a family of ten. I could say more but prefer to remain polite.

This is the best Italian food and service I have ever had anywhere in the U.S. You never leave hungry, but your taste buds are ruined, because no other Italian resteraunt will satify you ater eating at Frank's!
They do an OUTSTANDING job for special events, we recently held an anniversary party for my Aunt and Uncle there, and let me tell you - they spoiled us rotten!
I live in Columbus, OH, but have family there in Buffalo. Since eating at Frank's let me tell you....I find alot more reasons to come up there for visists now!!!
