Frank's Americana Revival
Consistent.Our pair of families were introduced to Frank's Chop House five years ago. We have dined at Frank's after each Rice football home game since then. The food has been consistently excellent. We have always felt welcomed, even when we were slightly under-dressed. The wait-staff has been consistently wonderful. This restaurant is truly a neightborhood gem. We will continue to patronize this fine establisment. Dan.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWill go backOne dish was outstanding, other was just decent. Service was exceptional.

Friendly service and a good bar.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently very goodWe never tire of eating here. The cuisine isn't gourmet--it's mostly comfort food done very well. Our table of three enjoyed starters of fried green tomatoes and a chopped salad, both of which were excellent. Our entrees included chicken-fried steak (outstanding), salmon, and an excellent creole-style snapper. Wine list continues to improve, and our server, Mark, is not only great on service, but is as honest about what's good and what's not so good as you'll find in town.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food from chicken friedGreat food from chicken fried steak to seafood.

Great rack of lamb special entree.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIt keeps getting better!This place just keeps getting better. The fried green tomatoes appetizer is as good as there is in the city, served with a wonderful Remoulade sauce and topped with shrimp. My wife chose the chicken-fried steak (her regular), and I tried the buttermilk-fried chicken, which was good. Both came with a healthy portion of mashed potatoes, and the restaurant was very accomodating about allowing us to substitute their wonderful collard greens for the roasted vegetables on the CFS and the green beans on the fried chicken. Their wine list has been drastically overhauled, and has a great selection of both domestic and imported wines for virtually every dish imaginable (with reasonable markups).4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFrank's is always a pleasantFrank's is always a pleasant experience, particularly after a long day.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had five people in ourWe had five people in our party and everyone commented that they will return to Frank's.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinner - everythingHad a wonderful dinner - everything from the ambiance to the tasty dinner and drinks was fabulous.

Waiter and Owners were very attentive but not overbaring. Love the look of the restaurant! Cosy but not crowded3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe booked dinner @ Frank'sWe booked dinner @ Frank's in conjunction with a promotional night for Garrison Bros. Bourbon, the 1st real Texas bourbon. We arrived an hour early to visit in the bar and enjoy good bourbon and good friends. James, the head waiter approached us about giving up our reservation to an older couple who had none. We obliged. Apparently this made an impression on the wait staff and on the owner, as each seemed to know immediately who we were and made an effort to thank us for the courtesy extended. The place was packed and extremely noisy, but we were treated well and enjoyed the evening. The food was excellent, the service friendly. Prices are a little higher than we normally pay, but this was a special night. Return is likely.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI went with a group of girlfriendsI went with a group of girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. I will be going back.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSince Frank's was taken overSince Frank's was taken over by Mike Shine and his group, some menu items have been pared and others added, the wine list has been improved, and what was already a very good restaurant has gotten even better. We each thoroughly enjoyed a cup of some of the best chili we've ever eaten, a special appetizer that we're told may become a staple on the menu. Our entrees included the chicken-fried steak, which is up there among the best in the city, and an absolutely delicious red snapper topped with crabmeat, served with very tasty okra & tomatoes and rice. Portions are large, prices are reasonable, and the owner is very friendly, apparently trying to get around to visit with all diners. We'll be back more often in the future3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
