Looking for a place for dinner while entoute to eastern Tennessee, we happened upon Frank's and were glad we did. Great menu. Great service. And you can get an iced tea to go. Great bread as an appetiser as well.

I love the sugar cookies here, especially the ones decorated like toads! But the donuts just aren't that great. There are better places to get donuts in Van Buren.

Love this place and visit every time we head west. Their super-sized double waffle cones ($2.50) are not to be missed--every flavor we've tried has been delicious. Their 1/3 lb. burger combo for only $6 is also delicious and a deal. You can also buy their many flavor of ice cream by the half gallon.

Had lunch here with a friend. The Tuscan Turkey sandwich was very, very dry and was very plain. Ordered iced tea but all they have to offer is flavored tea. Ordered water and was given a cup to fill it myself. Had to ask for ice. Not much seating area. I was disappointed but will try again. Maybe better next time around.

Old-fashioned chocolate-making in real copper kettles. Finest, fresh ingredients. Nuts are NEVER old! Enjoy nuts, chewies, truffles, and creams that aren't congealed! Excellent taste and variety of bark. Try one of each! A superior, tasty gift for any occasion.

This is the coffee shop where they will call you by name. Lots of locals hang out here and most of the staff have been here for a while. Great coffee and great place to hang out.

It's your average steak house. Good food but I wish they had a better variety. One of the only places in the county that serves alcohol.

Place is a bit challenging to find in a strip mall off of the main drag Fayetteville St. My to-go order was ready when I got there about 10 minutes after ordering. Prices are very reasonable and portions quite large. Their hottest spice level is not hot by Thai standards. I had their basil rice dish with squid which I thought was pretty good but nothing outstanding. Nice choice in Van Buren.

My wife and I stopped for lunch expecting some great food. While the place is very unique, the food was disappointing. The menu offers breakfast all day, Sandwiches, i.e., BLT, Grilled Cheese, Grilled Chicken, Foot long Chili Dog, and more. Sides, i.e., Fries, Tots, Onions Rings, and more. They also have dinners, i.e., Chicken Fried Steak, 1/2 LB Hamburger Steak, and more. I chose the BLT and it was very bland with practically no Lettuce. My wife had the Grilled Cheese with a side of Onion Rings and they were both burned. The bread was burned, while the cheese wasn't melted. I did have a Milk Shake that was very thick, good; and the Iced Tea was also very good. The place had some good Rock-n-Roll music and great hollywood posters. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and polite. Wish it could have been better. I hope you find this review helpful in making your travel arrangements.
