Frank's Americana Revival

1958 Reviews
$31 to $50
Contemporary American
Frank's is a classic neighborhood restaurant, with big city appeal. With a recognized reputation for memorable food and great service, the "Americana Revival" menu features locally sourced fruits and vegetables, along with fresh Gulf seafood. Try the chicken fried steak! It has been highlighted by multiple food critics as "the best" in the State of Texas. The highly acclaimed Fried Chicken and Maple Brined Pork Chop are just as good.

The steaks are all Certified Angus and come with generous sides on the same plate, and the salads are almost legendary.

Frank's is a place where you can meet your friends in the bar, dine there, or experience the full menu in the dining room.

Reservations are recommended but not required. Come see what Chef Colin Shine is creating.

    Had the best and last meal at Frank’s current location. Shelby is a phenomenal server. Very conscientious, friendly and all around such a lovely person. Hope to see her at your new location. Also Sharon (hostess) is so lovely and pleasant. Hope to see her at your new location. Happy to post photos if acceptable.

    This was our first visit. We were warmly greeted. The service was excellent. Never had to ask for anything. I had the "special" salad with homegrown heirloom tomatoes and watermelon. The tomatoes were so fresh they didn't even taste like a tomato, delicious! My husband had the Sunday special, which is prime rib; he said it was also amazing. Then we had a piece of chocolate cake. Very moist. We will keep this a special occasion place. They are moving to a new location, so we look forward to going there. There is one thing I was surprised about. We were asked if we wanted bread for the table. It was a breadbasket, very delicious, with a couple of different slices of bread and two different butter spreads. The charge was $3. I was surprised they charged for the bread. That is my only negative. We just won't get it next time, nothing special. We will go back!

    100% of the time, you will receive excellent food and service at Frank's. We had a very special Father's Day dinner there with our family which included a one year old. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal, the waiters were so very kind and attentive, especially to the one year old and we loved every minute!

    I have been going here for years. I was very disappointed in the food this trip. The chicken fried steak had virtually no taste and the shrimp and grits was under spiced. Waiter got one of our diners dinner wrong so waiting for the replacement caused the others dinner to get cold

    Franks food is consistently good. For a starter, their Fried Green Tomatoes topped with shrimp and remoulade is delicious. They have the best fried chicken in Houston served with a fresh made biscuit and honey..it’s yummy!! For something different, try their mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes. Franks servers make you feel welcome and at home, from the minute we walk in the door until we leave. They are never pushy but always helpful. The only problem I have with Franks is that it is too close to home‼️

    The service was excellent and attentive. Unfortunately the food was not up to expectations. The gravy for the mashed potatoes and chicken fried steak, was flavorless as werethe mashed potatoes. The fried chicken and chicken fried steak themselves were well seasoned and cooked. The pimento biscuits were flavorless, as was the biscuit that accompanied my dinner. The wedge salad was absolutely phenomenal appetizer and a meal itself. The service and wedge salad were the saving grace of the meal. I'll give Frank's a second chance the next time in Houston.

    Went for Easter Brunch & they offered a special brunch menu plus the regular menu. Basically the same items with a few new additions. We tried the crab hush puppies & they were just okay. A small piece of crab in the middle, would have been better with either more crab or mixed in batter. My prime rib steak sandwich was not very good, over cooked tiny slices of meat. The Chicken sandwich was also not a favorite at our table due to whatever batter & the cheese on it. The pimento cheese appetizer were a hit & the Crab cake salad was great. Service was great, I just wished our food had been better....hopefully just an off day because we have enjoyed this spot in the past.

    Out of towner looking for good Texas Chicken Fried Steak. This was the place for the most delicious meal. My traveling companion enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits. We finished with Banana Pudding. Frank’s Americana allowed us to try some Southern style food on this first trip to Houston.

    Frank’s is one of our favorite places in town. They are consistently great in all areas, especially their food. Their short rib on grits is the best in town. Their chicken fried steak is also one of the best. Wonderful nightly specials and fantastic owners and staff.
