FRANK'S PIZZA & SUBS
6620 Belair Road.
Open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday, and noon to 10 p.m. Sunday. Call 254-2900. The first thing I noticed about Frank's was the friendly atmosphere. The young men behind the counter called some of the customers by name. That's friendly.
The second thing I noticed was that the sign board offered a cold cut sub called Leave It To Frank. Now isn't that a friendly thing to do?
My friendly curiosity, however, lost out to a regular cold cut sub that was more than satisfying. All of the nine cold and 13 hot subs come on 8- or 12-inch rolls and range in price from just over $2 to just under $6.
There are lots of pizza offerings, as you would expect. The regular pizzas come in 12-, 14- and 16-inch pies and cost between $4.25 and $6.25 for one topping.
In addition, there are Sicilian, vegetarian, gourmet, supreme and white pizzas for slightly higher prices.
Also offered are salads, homemade soups, spaghetti, lasagna and other Italian favorites.
There's seating for about 30 in small booths should you want to eat in. Frank's Pizza is about two blocks south of Northern Parkway. You'll compete for about two dozen off-street parking spaces with a half-dozen other shops.
But Leave It To Frank, it's worth it.
