Choosing pizza toppings is a lot like being married: if there is an irreconcilable disagreement, both parties take half. Grab a piece of the pie with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pizza, subs, and other Italian fare at Frank's Place in Bedford.
Frank's Place's amiable crew populates the pizzeria's menu with hearty subs, Italian entrees, and New York–style pizza. Piping pies burst from the restaurant's oven, sprinkled with cheese and an eclectic array of toppings including eggplant and pineapple ($9.50+ for 14"). Chomp into an italian sub ($4.99) heaped with salami and capicola and zinged with italian dressing or a pita pocket packed with a medley of vegetables ($5.99). Diners can dizzy silverware with a mound of linguine bathed in tangy tomato sauce ($5.99) or sate taste buds with layers of lasagna ($6.99). Frank's also offers steak or chicken quesadillas ($4.99), seafood entrees ($5.99–$7.99), and special-sauce-slathered hamburgers ($1.99). Guests can slide into leathery booths bordered by maroon walls in Frank's dining room, which banishes boredom with a big-screen TV, arcade games, and a billiards table that performs uncanny impersonations of famous dinner tables.
Sicilian and New York-style pizzas—topped with a choice of more than 15 toppings such as sausage, bacon, and pineapple—headline the culinary show at Frank’s Place, but chefs complement the Italian staples with other food from around the globe. Beyond calzones and baked ziti, the kitchen team prepares tortillas, rice dishes, burgers, and hot dogs. It’s not just their Mexican, Italian, and American foods that draw in visitors; the casual, family-friendly neighborhood eatery proffers a big-screen TV, a pool table, and arcade games—entertainment more reliable than teaching a hen and her chicks not to put their wings on the table.
