Miami New Times' Description
There are bare-bones restaurants and there are no-bones restaurants. Then there's Frankie's. Parking lots have more ambiance than this square, spare room decorated with a worn Formica counter, faded sports posters, and a rattling cooler full of soft drinks. No booze, no seats (except a couple of benches to park butt until your order is ready). Who cares? Frankie's is the best goddamn pizza from which you could hope to dribble tomato sauce on your shirt. It's all in the crust, a round of culinary alchemy that's crisp on the bottom, airy and slightly chewy, and tasting of fresh-baked bread. You could put motor oil on it and it would still be delicious, though it's better with the standard array of toppings, judiciously applied so you can taste what Frankie's pizza is all about.
Tips from foursquare
I have been coming to Frankie's Pizza since I was a little girl. That's a lot of years!! Frankie's is STILL the BEST PIZZA around!!!!!!
The pepperoni pizza is amazing (though different from traditional pizza). This is a pick-up only place, but they throw in a free slice when you arrive.
Best pizza you'll ever have.
This place is a Miami institution. The pizza is great. Buy extra and take it home....you'll be wishing you did the next morning. :)
Best pizza in Miami . Simple, no B/S service . Closed Mondays .
