I usually hate spur-of-the-moment change of plans but all our visiting friend had to say was "burgers and barbecue" and we were there. Its a shame that we had never heard of Fronk's but better late than never!
The menu has specialty burgers - hand formed, never frozen. Salads, specialty sandwiches, entrees from the grill and the fryer. Chris and I make it a point not to order burgers but we couldn't pass up specialty burgers. Chris ordered The Little Piggy - pulled pork on a patty with coleslaw with beer battered corn on the cob and I got The Bull Burger - fried egg on a patty with maple bacon with beer battered onion rings. We split our burgers when we got 'em, I sampled mine first, actually I inhaled it. It was good. I'll admit, fried eggs on burgers are good but not everyone can do it. I want my yolk runny and a few places will cook it all the way - wrong. Fronk's did it the right way.
My burger was good but C's was even better. Now thats a burger. The pulled pork was flavorful, not drenched in bbq sauce and tender. The coleslaw was crisp and had a good sweetness... it went well together! But the real surprise was the beer battered corn on the cob. I can not tell you how good it is - You have to try it yourself. HAVE TO, HAVE TO! It is LIFE CHANGING.
The beer battered onion rings are the yum too! Noel & Samantha also split a Little Piggy and a half rack of ribs. To my surprise (& maybe theirs too) they didn't finish it but kept raving how good it was.
Fronk's was a delicious surprise. From the food to the staff to the decor. (Except maybe the crawling clown on the wall. That kinda freaked us all out)
Noel was in town from NY on a business trip and our other longtime friend Samantha is local. So many laughs and stories. It was a perfect impromptu Saturday. Thanks for the invite family!
I happened to meet the owner Jamie as we were leaving and he's a genuinely nice guy. Support small business!
