Man the old timers whipped up some strange crap

Miss Jablonski passed a couple "vintage" advertisements to us recently that are so good we had to post them. I believe these came from old Life magazines. Thankfully there have been some culinary advancements since the days of granny Jello salads and stuff made from cream of mushroom soup. Odds are you won't see any of this on the ol' Frank menu but them cheese boats are intriguing!

Food Dude!

Holy Crap it's been a while. Sorry to be so lame, we promise to start stirring it up on the intertoobs. We've been plenty busy down at Frank and folks are noticing. First up is Spike TVs Food Dude. He came on down and dug into the Jackalope. Pretty funny fella. All right, all right, all right.

So You Want To Be A Coffee Star?

Well maybe you should head down to Frank and see how it's done. Did that sound cocky? Yes, yes it did. Maybe it's because our man Tyler Wells placed top three in the Regional Barista Championships and is heading to the Nationals. Or maybe it's because Frank baristas took the top three places in the last Latte Art Smackdown. Either way we love coffee.

If you don't happen to live in Austin David Hobizal made a real nice video for ya to peruse over the intertoobs.

Clean Bobby and the Wienermobile

Dog Lovers some serious dog melding went down at Frank yesterday. It was like some effin' Close Encounters type coming home stuff. Not unlike a wiener magnet was inside the building drawing her to us.The Eagle has landed and all that action.

Behold the most iconic hot dog shaped driving apparatus docked right up to our humble establishment. The oldest and newest dynamos in the sausage world meet as if eHarmony set this shit up.

And if that wasn't enough the fine folks at Oscar Meyer came round the next day and our dude Clean Bobby got to show off his latest Hot Dog ink whilst piping a tune on his teeny weeny whistle gift. Just like his ink says, ladies, "HOT"

Beans Beans Good For Your Heart

Our man Tyler Wells just placed top 3 in the Regional Barista Championships. For those of you who get your coffee at Starbucks that's a big to do. He's headed to Anaheim for the US Barista Championship in April to represent the only hot dog and sausage restaurant in the competition. You can watch the regional finals here and see what this business is about.


For serious, though, this guy is legit. He's won the local latte art throwdown, been trained at our roaster, Intelligentsia, by some of the best in the business and is doing some amazing things for Frank and the Texas coffee scene. Stop by and see TJ or any of our crew for a great cup of Intelligentsia coffee.
