So many Stories

Over its 25 years, politicans, celebrities and more all stopped in for the All You Can Eat Italian Feast.  And when Frankies closed our doors in 2020, so many people told us how much they’ve missed us.  Founder Hal Roback and President Paul Dykeman will be sharing stories  from their personal experiences, and those from customers as well as the celebrity drop-ins over the years. Frankies is missed, but you can relive a GTA icon with the upcoming book.
