Frankie's gets catered to building at work at through Fooda. I have basically been getting people to follow me to try it once and then they are hooked. All I have to say is, whether it be the ribs or the chicken, I pick it up from the bone and the meat falls right off of it. It should be illegal how tender and tasty the food is. The cabbage is delicious as well, and the plantains are an awesome dessert.The only issue I have with this place is that it's too far from me and I only get to have it once a month. More...

The food here is amazing! You don't get food like this in or around Milwaukee service is slow but it was well worth the wait. We will be back many times. They were not busy and they deserve to be I think they would do better with an Eastside location. Hope they get very busy and stay around a very very very long time. More...

Genuine service, and the food is excellent! Great breakfast and lunch spot. Haven't tried their dinner menu yet. We'll be back for sure! We love coming here.

We tried Frankies tonight for the first time. We ordered the Jamaican Jerk Chicken dinner and a Fish Fry with potato pancakes and took it to go. Our food was fantastic! The beer batter on the fish was good, the potato pancakes were amazing...probably the best that I've had! My husband absolutely loved his jerk chicken with rice and the plantains. We both loved the chicken noodle soup that came with both dinners (they also had clam chowder) and portions were great size AND very reasonably priced. I can't wait to try other menu items and their brunch buffet. Seriously, give this place a try if you're out this way, SO good and very friendly!Also, they included plasticware, condiments, & salt & pepper packets to go which was really nice and great to know if you are planning to eat somewhere other than home.

Finally found a good Sunday brunch in Oak Creek!The deets: We've been here twice now, once for a Sunday brunch and once for breakfast. Both times the service was _outstanding_ and the food was very good. The only things we didn't like are 1) the location -- it's not in the "main" Oak Creek area, so if you don't know what you're looking for you're unlikely to find it and 2) the breakfast and lunch menus are a little small. Not tiny or limiting, but a little smaller than I think most people are used to now. That said:The all-you-can-eat brunch buffet was simple but included all of the basics (scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, house potatoes, french toast, fruit, etc.) and some nice "extra" items (Hawaiian bbq ribs, jollof rice, chicken, fried plantains, and more). Plus, it also included made-to-order omelettes, waffles, and pancakes from the kitchen. I had waffles and they were tasty.When we went for breakfast, we both had the spinach and goat cheese omelette (I think it's called "The Heart Healthy?" -- it has more than spinach and goat cheese, I just can't think of what else is in there at the moment), and it was very good. Served with toast and a side of potatoes w/ onions and green peppers. Ample portion and great flavor with lots of fresh ingredients. Good coffee too!A family-owned business run and staffed by a family originally from Ghana, they also offer Caribbean and West African dishes for lunch and dinner, we just haven't been able to try them yet. We're excited to though, and have high hopes.Definitely worth checking out, especially if you're looking for a good brunch in Oak Creek! More...

It's good.  Solid diner food for breakfast for the money spent.  We also had the Hawaiian wings and the bourbon pork sandwich.  Restaurant specializes in African cuisine.Very tasty.  Good price point.  Can't wait to try the jerk chicken next time. More...

Tried this place for the first time tonight!! My grandparents recommended it! The staff are so warm, engaging, and kind! ! I tried the jerk chicken which was so tender and flavorful!! And their plantains were amazing!!! Best part was the carrot cake (made in house), it was so delicious!!!! If you are looking for a new place to try in the oak creek area, I highly recommend them!!!!! They're location is a little out of main stream traffic and you have to get close to see that they have African and Caribbean food, but it's so worth it!! More...

Great food and service! Jerk chicken joloff rice fried plantains all on the brunch buffet along with the regular breakfast stuff. Really hoping this place sticks around. Hard to find authentic African/Caribbean cuisine in this area.The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Can't wait to go back!Oh and they deliver and cater. Please go check it out and keep them in business. More...

We live down the road and drive by all the time and figured we'd give it a try.  The roadside diner type looking places can be questionable sometimes but we were pleasantly surprised. My husband is a huge fan of jerk chicken so when he saw they served Caribbean food, he was itching to try the place. We went on a Thursday night around 6pm.  The place was pretty empty but it's only been open a little while. After reading the menu we learned the owners have actually been in the catering business for 4-5? years and decided to open a restaurant.  Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about our experience.  The food was all very good, especially the jerk chicken!!  The jerk chicken was very tender and fell right off the bone. They have many unique menu options, food you can't get anywhere else. The server was very polite and attentive.  I see they're open for breakfast as well.  I will definitely be back.  I would recommend others give it a try! More...

It's not often that you find a restaurant that is able to provide authentic African cuisine  that is accessible to a wider population. Frankie's has successfully done that! They've kept the menu simple but with the right mix of cuisines. The food is well prepared and very tasty. They have the basics covered  - jollof rice, plantains and stew. Try the jerk Tilapia! Smart move in also catering to American cuisine.Service is attentive and the atmosphere is quietly inviting. I strongly recommend to anyone who wants an entry point into African cuisine. You will not be disappointed. More...

This is our second time back. Food is just as good as the first time. Our next trip will be for their lunch buffet during the week. This is a must stop for breakfast as well. More...

WOW! Loved this place, the food was delicious and flavorful, all homemade and inexpensive. Came here around 8pm on Friday night a couple of weeks ago because we had seen it driving by. We like ethnic food and like to support local businesses.We were greeted by the owner when we walked in and again when we left, he was extremely friendly and invited us to come back and try their weekday lunch buffet and Sunday brunch. Which we definitely will do!To start, we ordered the friend plantains, my favorite! I had the Tunga chicken (cooked on the bone with African spices) and my husband had the specialty African beef dish (can't remember what it was called) very flavorful almost curry like seasoning? I really enjoyed my dish, but wish I had ordered what my husband got and he felt the same about mine! Both dishes came with soup/salad, vegetable rice, and a really good cooked cabbage and veggie sautee. Yums! All in all, 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 drinks later or bill was only $32!Will be back to sample the rest of their delicious food:) So glad to have this in the neighborhood! More...
