Since 1952 doing it old school folks,,,no fancy fast ovens or canned topping,,,they be keeping it fresh cut goodies sliced and diced in house unlike those canned goods thrown on your pie at those fast food pizza chains who then run it into a super fast oven. Nope not here it’s the same way they made’m 62 years ago and you know what that takes time,,,, so many cry baby reviews that want that fast food pizza just need not visit. Plan on 45 minutes to an hour because the place is always busy. As a regular you learn quick,,grab a waitress order your pizza now and then have her come back to see you for drinks and side dishes,,,hey it works I tell you.
This from a another visit many years ago, I just had to visit this place since the reviews are off the chart good for the pizza and really want to see for myself how long was the wait for the pizza and how bad can the service be. Well let me tell you I ordered my pizza first and ask the great friendly waitress to put that order in and come right back to see me,,,well it worked pizza hot and yummy the deluxe special in 40 minutes, while we finished the soup and large anti pasta salad which was great. At 5 pm on a Thursday the place was filled with no seats left, you know that says something really interesting about a eating spot.
This pizza is a must try as one of the very best I’ve ever eaten and the pricing is affordable along with the really good service we received, I be a constant customer of there’s for a long time. Franks has the best crispy thin crust pizza Downriver bar none, and they use the small spicy pepperoni that curls up, it’s hard to find that anywhere. The pizza is greasy but this is simply a product of using natural meats and cheeses, not that crap the chain pizza places use. If you like old school pizza with all natural ingredients, you want Franks. They are light on the pizza sauce which suits my tastes, and the sauce has a very natural flavor and is not overpowering.
