......franks is what it is, a corner dive bar in a neighborhood that went upscale long ago....despite that it holds its character and ambience....personalities a plenty and if you have the slightest inclination for socializing the patrons are approachable gregarious....\r
.the staff is at times your best friend or if you are rude to them, they can as quickly be rude to you, but that in itself lends to the mystique of this venerable bar that outlasted prohibition, (word to the wise, waving money at a bartender anywhere in the world gets you ignored, but especially at franks)...\r
drinks are cheap, shots start @ $2 and for $15 you can get drunk and leave a decent tip...daily specials range from $5 bucket of ponies to fantastic sunday bloody mary's...has weekly pub quiz on wednesday nights and darts everynight...has taken to the smoking ban and is no, somewhat less dirty than in days of yore.....\r
if visiting phila, franks will give you more stories to tell the kids back home than the liberty bell, just remember to leave the seat up when you leave...
Pros: drinks are cheap, real cheap
Cons: parking is tough
