Review of Franky's Diner

Franky's Diner
Ranked #362 of 1 288 Restaurants in Cape Town Central
Cuisines: Diner
Description: Franky’s Diner is an authentic 50’s style diner in the heart of Sea Point. Serving up delicious hamburgers, fries and shakes, this diner couldn’t be more 50’s if it tried. Customers can relax and enjoy some hound-dog music while sitting on the comfy red vinyl stools at the counter or they can choose to snuggle up in the back booth. Franky’s Diner is certainly a trip back in time to an era long gone but never forgotten.

Went to Frankies as a friend of a friend said they did the best flapjack stack, which of you are not South African is a stack of pancakes.
They were nicely presented and could not complain about the potion size, however, was a little disappointed that they were warmed up mass produced, rather than freshly made.
The coffee was not the best either but not the worst by far.

The best thing I can say about Frankie’s is the service was good. As far as this being an American style diner. Yes for the decor. But it’s a big no for the food. We even gave it two chances thinking maybe the first time was a bad night. Nope. Also we had way better burgers in CT almost everywhere else. No thank you Frankie’s. Boo.

Tasty juicy burgers but poor service and it was not even busy. I’d definitely buy their burgers again.

Every city needs a 24-hour diner that serves alcohol and has a juke box. We found ourselves here twice at the end of party nights. They also deliver.
