Restaurant Review: Franks Diner in Kenosha, WI

BeFunky_Tilt-Shift_1
I have become obsessed with watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network.  There are a good amount of restaurants that have been featured on the show in near Chicago, however, I chose to visit a small diner in Wisconsin this past weekend.  I drove up to Wisconsin with my mom for breakfast and we had a great time.  Franks Diner is in an old train car and the staff are full of character.  First, I ordered one of their homemade cinnamon rolls which was amazing!  Hands down the best cinnamon roll I have ever had.

I also ordered a garbage plate — one of the items they are famous for.  The garbage plate includes hash browns, eggs, onions, and bell peppers while including options to add different meats, vegetables, and cheeses.  I ordered a garbage plate with corned beef, and cheddar cheese.  It was fantastic.  The garbage plate also comes with toast, which is of course homemade and delicious.

I wish I lived a little closer to this diner, but distance won’t stop me. I will be back for more!  I encourage you to visit this diner if you are ever in or near the Kenosha area.

Kenosha is a small city on Lake Michigan, and I encourage you to walk down the walk from Franks’ to the beach.  The lighthouses were beautiful even in the 30-degree weather!
