I was driving near Rt. 31 in Cicero and looking for a different place to eat when I stumbled upon a bar-grill that had a "seafood" sign on its facade.

Although I couldn't find a name for the place, and, quite honestly, from the outside it looked a little run-down, my empty stomach got the better of me and I wen inside.

Decor is pretty simple, but at least half of the tables were occupied at 2:30 in the afternoon. I took that to be a good omen.

A sign on the wall indicated steamers were $5.95 a dozen on Monday's and Tuesdays. So, I had to try them. My companion and I also tried a burger and a sandwich.

Everything was very good!

The menu isn't very large, but the beers are cold and everyone else in the joint looked like they were enjoying their food.

Prices are good, too.

Frank's merits a return visit...even if only for the cold beer and steamers!

Here's the Daily Specials list:

4 domestic beers for $12! All day, every day!

Monday $5.95 dozen steamed little necks
Tuesday $5.95 dozen steamed little necks
Wednesday $.49 wings
Thursday $.49 wings
Saturday (after 2pm) $13.95 prime rib dinner (includes salad and potato)

Stopped in for lunch. What a great little gem. Great food friendly staff and low prices for the amount of food that you get. Will be back.

We've been going to Frank's for awhile but decided to take our out of town visiting family for dinner recently. the price is right and the food is very good. The atmosphere is family friendly and service is prompt and professional. Everyone remarked on how good the food was how large the portions were and how reasonable the prices were. The restaurant is not fancy but is just what we wanted in comfort and selection.

Frank's has been around for a long time. You can get a better than average meal for a great price. A great balance of food and drink. Nice big bar and plenty of dining space. It's loud and lively. And kid friendly.

This is the kind of place where you don't have to dress up. You can bring your unruly kids and have a great meal at a great price which far surpasses "bar food". Or you can sit at the lively bar and converse with the locals, play Quickdraw, network with your blue-collar friends. It's been here forever so everyone knows everyone here. They serve dinner until 10 which is later than most places around here outside of fast food.
