Best Breakfast Oak Forest: Frank's Grill

Just across the Northwest Freeway from the heart of Oak Forest is one of the best little greasy spoon diners you'll ever visit. The sister location of Frank's on the south side, this has everything you want from a great diner for breakfast. For a show, sit at the counter and watch the short order cooks work their magic with a massive pile of hash browns.

You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
The Houston Press is a nationally award-winning, 32-year-old publication ruled by endless curiosity, a certain amount of irreverence, the desire to get to the truth and to point out the absurd as well as the glorious.
