In most American cities, Frank’s would be called a diner. For many years, Houstonians visited the Telephone Road location for bacon, eggs, hash browns, pancakes, and the rest of that familiar list of American breakfast favorites, but now there are six locations around town. Frank’s offers excellent hamburgers, liver and onions, pork chops, and chicken-fried steaks, but as good as the lunch and dinner items may be, it’s best to heed the employees’ T-shirts, which read “Best Breakfast in Town.” Frank’s Grill takes you back to a time when Americans took breakfast seriously. Why do we prefer the name “grill” to “diner” in Houston? Probably has something to do with our love of meat.
