I actually worked there since day one. Though I had some differences with the bosses, they are genuinely good people, and business men. The girls are all sweethearts , and women who work hard/long hours to take care of their families.( not future dope heads, you dimwit.) As for the cleanliness, have you any damn clue how many nights I stayed hours after I got off cleaning every crevice of that place? I was also somewhat of a cook there, and we cook everything properly. As for the patrons, a majority of you are just terrrible with your attitudes, holier than God, I'm top shit because you serve me food, no tipping assholes. Countless people even had the audacity to make rude comments about my tattoos. Any body talking you may hear about Franks is likely other restaurants. Go and form your own opinion by experiencing it for yourself. Frank is their Dads name, and the name of their other restaurant.

My friends and myself loved harvest. The prices, the diner feel, and the food. We started wanting to make it a regular spot for our fridays. When it became franks, the prices went up, and it became a sit down place. not to mention the fries changed. Haven't been back since.

Mama Mia's in Granite is not very good. We went there a few times, hoping the first bad experienc was a fluke. Brown lettuce in the salad,dead fly in the food on our final visit. The place was very dirty and the food trrible. When they first opened it was so much better, the place went downhill though. The Mama Mia's in Wood River has a different owner and the food s amazing at that location. I can eat at least two meals off most of their breakfasts and some of the dinners as well. Not to mention the prices are good too. I have never been to Franks so I can't really say anything about it.

I think Frank's has super low prices! Me, my fiance and our daughter can all go eat breakfast for under $15! That's cheaper than any fast food place!

Got the 18 oz porterhouse medium rare. It turned out cooked just right, tender and not dry like most places. Try getting that quality at Applebees, you simply won't. The sides were just as good. You can't go wrong with franks. Place was clean, staff was nice.

We need more places like this, I'm sick of all the fast food places popping up. I don't get why people would prefer fast food to actual food.

Had a great breakfast at Franks yesterday. Couldn't finish all of it. The staff was very friendly. This truly is one of GCs best restaurants.

I have ate at Franks several times. Awesome food. Waitresses are very friendly and quick. Prices are great. I rate the food much better than TGIF, Applebees, Houlihans, Olive Garden, Dennys, Bob Evans or Outbacks. At Franks, you'll get better than Outback quality meal for a third of the price.

The inside is VERY CLEAN, and also very plain. If you want a fancy atmosphere, this is not the place. But if you want great food and awesome service, THIS IS IT! I've never seen a restaurant like this before, and I'm 55. The focus is totally on fantastic food and great service. You're not paying 2 to 3 times more just so you can sit in an elegant dining room. For me, I love it.

Franks restaurant is not clean. They have food all over the kitchen floor and they fry their food in the morning and then as people order it they fry it again. Why do you think it comes out so fast? They treat their employees like crap. They just now started paying them with a paycheck. Before they were paid under the table. Every single employee. Since they got caught they don't let employees work overtime. Before they would work people 7 days a week making them ask for a day off. If you needed something or made a mistake they yelled at you and treated you like crap. The people that actually did their job they screwed them over. They treated 1 girl like she was god and listened to whatever she said. They avoided bill collectors making the servers take the calls and do interviews. They would not fire people. They made the servers do that too. Or the told them we'll call you when we need you. They ever fired a girl once, who was good, because she asked for proof off income so she could get daycare foe her kid. So don't always believe what you think you see. So I personally am glad their doors are shutting. They shouldn't be allowed to get away with the stuff they do. They should be shown there are consequences to your actions or lack thereof.

Who says they're closing? I didn't read that in any of the comments.

You?

Someone alert the press.
