BY: DAVEGARCIA.NET - Driving westbound on Bird Road I spotted a vintage sign that reached to the clear blue Miami sky, with flashing marquee lights that read “Frankie’s Pizza.”
Some said it served one of the top-ten pizzas in Miami. Still, others boasted it was one of the top-five. But the hardcore fans claimed it to be the #1 pizza in Miami.
It was delicious! A soft little square that was crunchy and tasty at the same time. How did Frankie do it? What was he secret? Regardless, I agree with many fellow Miamians – this was definitely one of the best pizzas in town if you were driving down the road and you got the munchies.

I grew up on Frankie's, I worked at Frankie's during high school and it is one of the very few things I miss about Miami. It is a snapshot of a better time and the best pizza ever. With places closing left and right these days, it is a comfort to know that Frankie's will endure for decades.

I nearly ran over Rene' while crossing Bird Road! Get the HALF-BAKED --trust me! Or eat on the cat-infeststed patio -or in your car, if you must, but Never, Ever, drive it home and serve it up 20+ minutes later.
Frank Pasquerella devised a formula for crispy crust that even holds up during our 6-month monsoon season. It is securely guarded by his 2 devoted daughters Roxanne & Rene'. They slave away to make time stand still and keep the pizza ovens burning! Oh, yeah, Ends & Corners, ENDS & CORNERS!!
After reading the rave reviews, I decided to try Frankie's on a recent Saturday night. I ordered a deluxe w/ 5 toppings. The pizza took 40 minutes--not the promised 20 minutes. Over-all the pizza was good. If it had more sauce and more than one slice of sausage per slice, I would have given it a better rating. It is still much better than most.

I grew up on this pizza. Moved out of town after Hurricane Andrews and still crave for their pizza.
I have the pizza shipped half baked, along with extra sauce, to enjoy without traveling three hours to get some.
The more people I meet that are from Miami state that they too are hooked on their pizza.
I WANT A FRANCHISE

By far, this is the best Pizza in town! No questions ask!!! You have that family owned and operated feel to it, and everyone is happy. And the service to the customer is priceless!!! The service is fast and the friendliest, It's rite in the heart of Bird Road in Miami.... So if you are on the way home in either directions going east or west and you have a craving for pizza this is the place to go... Believe me when I tell you that nothing will top Frankies Pizza!!! =)
By the way, Don't ever forget the Garlic Rolls, they are to die for... YUUUMMMMYYYYYYY

The previous review who hated it must have gone on a bad day-i worked in and eventually owned the McDonalds down the street on Bird Road and a few others, and knew Frankie and Roxanne for 30 years plus-It was a little better when Frankie lorded over the place, he worked near 24 / 7 , but Roxanne tries hard to keep up his tradition. I've never had a better , more unique tasting pizza- all the others are clones of each other-frankies has a unique taste, texture and shape- she needs to go back to fresh mushrooms tho-i started buying the half baked and adding my own at home- mabey the bad review bought a half baked one and didn't realize it was half cooked-mabey thats why he hated it. I wish ""My Pie "" of chicago would come back-that was totally different tasting too-- super thick and gooey-no dried up crust there-- those two made me bored with ordinary pizza forever. Thanks for the tip that they ship thru on line now.

Drove from Kendall to get the ""Best pizza in Miami"". What a joke on me. This pizza is 1 step above a frozen pizza from my fridge. I'm not kidding. These reviews must be from the owner's relatives because this pizza is cut in dried up squares. Now realistically I wasn't expecting a New York tasting pizza but I never expected this. Every regular pizza chain taste better than this. The crust was crunchy like stale bread. The cheese was relatively tasty but I like a pizza I don't have to scrape of the crust to enjoy. I was born in Miami 49 years ago and never had a worst pizza.

This is THE BEST PIZZA in the world!!! I am 1 year older that Frankie's Pizza - it is the very first pizza I ever ate (when I first got teeth @ 2 and a 1/2!) and the memory of that exquisite flavor has never left me - nor has it ever changed in 53 years! I am a Miami native and I've witnessed a lot of changes here but the 1 thing I am so glad has remained exactly the same in Miami is FRANKIE'S!!! My 5 siblings are also Frankie's addicts and we have turned-on everyone we know to the most delectable pizza this side of the Moon. It is our family tradition to have Frankie's whenever our ""tribe"" gets together. We literally swoon with the pleasure of eating a Frankie's Pizza! I highly recommend it to the rest of the world! Thanks Roxanne and thank you Frankie!

I was introduced to Frankie's Pizza by my older brother back in the early 80's. Since then, I have relocated to Maryland, Cuba (naval base) and Jacksonville, and then back to Miami. While away from Miami, I had the half-baked pizzas shipped to wherever I was stationed and enjoyed them at all hours of the day. Frankie's is the best pizza for both taste and value! I would recommend it to everyone.
My parents used to take me to Frankie's as a child, just like their parents did when they were kids. Now I drive all the way from Broward County just to fill my craving! Even my best friend, who I introduced to Frankie's is in love with the one of a kind taste nobody but Frankie's has.
I have been a Frankie's pizza lover for more than 15 years. Ever since I came from California, Frankie's is the place I go when I have a pizza craving. There is nothing better than watching a football game with my buddies, munching on a Frankie's square and drinking a couple of beers. Pizza is my favorite food and I have introduced my girlfriend, my brother in law and almost anyone I know to Frankie's pizza. So far everyone agrees. I always go to Frankie's and if I happen to be in South Beach Pizza Rustica is the place. Unfurtunately my kids don't like pizza, but who knows may be someday they'll join the crowd.
