Tried it today. Terrible hamburgers. They tasted as though there was some sought of spice put in the meat that left a terrible aftertaste. Over cooked and not very edible. The hot dog was
also terrible. More like a kelbasi and I was surprised how poor it tasted. We spent over $30.00 on various items and all of us went hungry.

Live in St. James and finally had a chance to stop in on the way home from work last week. I enjoyed the burger and fries. I think it was around $7.00 for the burger fries and a drink, not too bad! Stop in and give it a chance.

I loved it. Had it twice last week. It is a combination of
exotic items that mesh excellent. My new favorite burger spot

I would like to start off by saying the BURGERS and HOT DOGS are Different in a great way!!!! I am always on the road because its my job. I have to say I have had the #1Combo which is Great. Same goes for #2, then #4 and I think the Zombie N Dog which I am not sure if thats number 5 or 6.

The point is this, I eat a lot on the road and have had many different kinds of food from the norm to the exotic. Frank N Burger is great its new I love the place. Its a new idea to the same old stuff.

PLEASE do not take my word for it, go take a drive to the place and give it a test run you will not be fooled.

Hence, those who hate the food well just dont go back! Every one likes different things thats what makes us human. Remember theirs MCD, Wendys and the King for a reason. Every one has different taste and thank god for options. But do me a favor "Mike" don't knock the place for trying to be different why dont you get out more and open your mind to bigger and better things.

Good luck to the owner of Frank N Burger I hope he or she does well and grows I look forward to it.

Love this place. Something new and different. The burgers are made fresh and are delicious. Well worth $8 for a meal including fries and a drink. Could spend more than that at a fast-food joint and not be satisfied. Good luck to the owner - nice guy. Give it a try -

Blah -Gag...really bland.. funky meat loaf - like texture...You really need to serve 100% beef, and loose the fillers..

Bobby Flay burgers are a RIP OFF.. very small, but at least they were tasty

We went to Frank N Burger St James NY for dinner. In days where 'gourmet' burger joints are springing up all over Frank N Burger will stand out from the crowd.

The Frank N Burger (#1 on the menu)--is reminiscent of my all-time favorite--the Banzai burger from Red Robins that used to be at Smithaven mall. It's a huge teryaki burger with all the trimmings.

It comes with fries and a large soda for just under $8. My family and I got take out for just under $20.

If you're a burger fan you should try it.

Tried it the other day. I had the swamp burger, was very delicious. I got a very generous helping for a very good price and I was full for a while. Definitely a must try.

nah, the meat tasted like dragon meat.They are putting somethin in there and it doesnt taste right. Better off going next door to Nathans. Better franks, better fries too!

"Not Happy" your a hater. If you don't like the place just don't go their. Don't knock the food of this great new place, it's not for everyone.

By the way the Nathans next door sucks ass. It's a Nathans Express/Subways. I can go to Brooklyn and get the real thing or any shopping mall, plaza or food court to get the same old menu!

So if thats you thing, well I am happy for you. The fact is your BORING....Get out more.

Please people dont take my word for it give Frank-N-Burger a try.

In closing, theirs a really great place for Taco's in Astoria Queens. Just thought of posting that since I found it 4 days ago.
I Hate Meatloaf

I Went there this past week.
If this is what Dragon Meat tastes like, I will be buying it more often. As well, these burger patties do NOT taste like any Meatloaf I've ever had....In fact, I'm going back today.
I have come to realize that most people from Long Island are uncultured plebians. If you don't want to try something slightly different continue supporting Global Commerce; i.e. Fast Food, Applebees and the lot. If you would like to step outside the box, we have a myriad of local haunts, and this is the newest of them. I will be happy if they stick around longer than most.
After talking with the Owner (Manager?) I have found the meat is a mix of 81/19 ground Angus Chuck. The fat content is PERFECT. Not only are these burgers prepared FOR you, they are prepared on a FLAME grill, not a skllet/griddle. Liquid smoke does not have a place here, thankfully. Everything tastes fresh. The burgers are rather large as well. The bread is fresh, and they throw in a unique corn cake for 1 burger. It is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
The Proprietor is a VERY personable guy, and is open to suggestions, as the menu is a work-in-progress. They have already changed things to benefit the customers. These are the places that truly make NY a great place to live/visit!
Next they need a liquor/beer license ;)
I loved it

I pass by this place everyday on my way to work. I went there for lunch last week and I thought the burger I ate was one of the BEST burgers I have ever eaten. I told some co-workers about it and they went a few days later and now they are hooked!! I enjoyed the unique combinations of flavors and can't wait to try the rest of the burgers and franks.
