We got totally fried at FRANC’S. We ate too much. The plan was to sample 12 wings and leave quietly. What happened was we felt the full effect of Franc's huge portions. Let’s start with the waffles. Now Franc’s use Doritos-crusted chicken thighs which isn’t our first choice but the result is crunchiness off the charts. You can certainly taste the Doritos and the one down side is it crumbles more than a flour dredge. But Franc’s are doing things their way and we admire this as we wipe our faces as told by their napkins while Nate Dogg serenades us with “Nobody Does it Better”. How fitting. Any plate of waffles that has fried chicken hanging out and bourbon maple for dunking - which is as thick as caramel - is always going to score well. Oh and it comes with bacon. The first flavour you get from their monumental Buffalo Chicken Burger, besides the taste of your own saliva as you admire its size, is the sweetness from the brioche bun before the heat from the hot sauce attempts to muscle its way in. The slaw has crunch and the bacon does what is expected - be delicious. And finally what we actually came for, the $1 XXL wings, a Monday special. The Buffalo wings were swimming in Frank’s RedHot, literally, and the plain wings were crispy and juicy and matched perfectly with a side of ranch dressing. And in true Franc’s style, the wings are huge. And at $1 a pop, it’s undeniable value for money. Luckily there is a hamster wheel in the park across the road you can waddle over to after you inevitably over indulge. Overall: 3.8/5 What we had: Buffalo Chicken Burger Chicken & Buttermilk Waffles 12 XXL wings, 6 original and 6 Frank’s hot sauce $59.80
Ended up coming here since everything else on valentines day was booked out in takapuna, what a bad decision that was. Service was absolutely terrible, we were placed on a back table and just ignored. Even when they sat someone beside us and took their orders we were still waiting for some service. We asked for their menus while they were taking someone else's order and they didn't even seem to care that they had forgotten about us. Food was shit not even going to go into it, what a complete waste of time.
Service was shocking. No body was helping us. They seemed to be avoiding serving anybody. We ended up leaving and going next door to get a wine. When we got up and left staff quickly came over to clear the table, ha
