The other day I was heading to Mother’s Dumplings to have lunch with @nearafarand I passed  by  by Fancy Franks en route. While enjoying our lunch, I said to her “Hey, can we go check out Fancy Franks after lunch?”.

She agreed like a nice foodie friend.

When we walked in, I noticed the “decor” right away. Out came the iPhone to snap a photo!!

We stood at the counter and stared at the menu board which is a massive chalkboard on the wall. The kind server, noticed we were struggling and quickly passed us a written menu. It was like she was reading our mind as it was SO much easier to read when a menu is in your hand.


We were overwhelmed by the choices:

Fancy PB & J – Peanut butter, Strawberry Jam (what do you think?)

Frankathenapolis – Greek Feta Cheese, Tomatoes, Kalamata Olives, Green Pepper, Onion, Extra Virgin Oil , Lemon

Fancy Francine – 2 Fried Eggs, Bacon, Hollandaise Sauce.

Po’Boy Gets Fancy – Panko Fried Shrimp Lettuce, Horseradish, Mayo, Hot Saue.

Plus a dozen more options!!!

We asked a guy in line what he was ordering and we chatted with the counter staff as well – as we had no idea what to order.

We decided on: “Franks Got Seoul” which is described as Korean Beef Ribs, Kimchi, Sesame Seeds, Scallions. ($7.50)

I was a happy camper. I love this concept and wish Fancy Franks all the best.

I’m already thinking of a tweet up where we order a half dozen hot dogs, cut up the hot dogs into small bites and have a “Fancy Frank” gourmet hot-dog-a-thon.

Who’s in?

Oh yeah – one more thing- they have one of those donut machines on site and serve 4 different varieties of freshly made donuts. Looks like “momwhoruns” will have to run a bit faster so she can try these donuts next time.

P.S A veggie option is available
