Frank’s Classic American Grill in Monkey Junction is a popular spot for lunch and dinner.  Specializing in burgers, hot dogs, specialty entrees, and amazing desserts, Frank’s is always the right choice.
Frank’s makes one of the best burgers you will ever have the pleasure of tasting.  Always fresh pattied and made to your exact specifications their burgers are so good you won’t want it to end.  “Every one of our hamburger patties is hand-rolled, making them some of the juiciest burgers in town! You won’t find fast food-style burgers at Frank’s, just great, fresh, and cooked to order patties of pure bliss. You also have to try the famous fresh-made ribbon fries especially the chili’ll know why when you try them!”  You can get your burger with cheese if you like and you have the option of a regular burger or a “Frank’s burger” which is made bigger for those with a larger appetite!  Add an order of their incomparable homemade ribbon fries and make it a meal.
If you love Hot Dogs then you will adore the “Frank’s Specialty Franks” selection which consists of 4 wonderful and tantalizing hot dog creations.  These huge hot dogs are loaded with various topping combinations that blend perfectly.  The “Big City Dog” is a true tribute to those delicious Franks which you always have to find while walking down the streets of the “Big City.”  Covered in sauerkraut, sauced onions, mustard and relish the Big City dog will make your mouth water.  Next on the list is the “Campfire Dog.” 
This original creation combines all the elements of campfire cooking onto one delicious dog.  Piled high with baked beans, sauced onions, mustard, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce this is a dog for which you will need to bring an appetite.  The “Campfire Dog,” includes all of the flavors you love to have while sitting around a blazing fire with friends.  The next specialty Frank on the menu is a pork lover’s dream come true.  If you are one of those people who is always craving bacon and ham for every meal then you will love and appreciate the “3 Pigs in a Blanket” hot dog.  This dog is surrounded by slices of smoked ham then topped with slices of bacon, honey mustard, cheddar cheese and slaw.  If you like more of a kick with your hot dog then the last one on the list will be your favorite. Frank’s “Southwestern” frank packs a kick strong enough to satisfy anyone who prefers added heat on their hot dogs. 
The “Southwestern” frank is topped with mustard, chili, salsa, pepperjack and cheddar cheeses then finished off with tasty and hot jalapeno peppers.  It will simultaneously set your mouth ablaze and delight your tastebuds with an unbeatable combination of flavor.  Needless to say, Frank’s Classic American Grill knows Franks, and they invite any self proclaimed hot dog aficionados to come give ‘em a try!  You won’t be disappointed!
In addition to serving up wonderful burgers and hot dogs, Frank’s Classic American Grill also offers a multitude of great lunch and dinner specials including a variety of specialty sandwiches and dinner entrees. “Everything cooked at Frank’s is homemade food fixed fresh right in our kitchen.

Eat with us or take it to go.”   Frank’s offers dinner specials from 4:30 p.m. until close on Mondays through Fridays and is known to include selections such as country fried steak, pork chops and even liver and onions.  One of their most famous specialty entrees is the Corn Beef and Cabbage.  Loved by all of their customers who always eagerly await the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month, the Corn Beef and Cabbage night only happens twice a month so don’t miss it!
Frank’s Classic American Grill is maybe most well known for their desserts which are highlighted by their homemade frozen custards.  These custards are famous for their incredibly creamy texture and delicious flavors.  Made daily, Frank’s custards are the freshest available and you can tell.  Frank’s has many loyal followers of their custards but that’s not all they offer on the dessert menu.  In addition to their massive selection of custard flavors Frank’s offers a plethora of other frozen treats that are sure to put a smile on your face.  Frank’s will transport you back in time with a good old fashioned banana split, malts, shakes, or a sundae made just how you want it.  If you want a perfect blend of your favorite flavors get a hurricane. This summer the best way to cool off when the mercury rises is with a frozen treat from Frank’s. Frank’s Classic American Grill is pleased to announce that they will soon be opening a second location on Market Street.  Don’t worry, the original Frank’s isn’t going anywhere, but don’t be surprised when someone on the other side of town asks, “Have you ever been to Frank’s?”  At the new Frank’s location you will find all of the same menu items as they have at their Monkey Junction location, but you will find that the Market Street Frank’s will have a expanded specials and entrée selection.  With more room to work with in the dining area and in the kitchen Frank’s will be able to add and keep more items available on the menu.  They will also be adding a bar area and will be hosting karaoke and trivia nights.
