Blackened Tuna

This generous portion of tuna is served over Caribbean rice and glazed with a sweet orange chili sauce served with sautéed vegetables. The tuna itself has just a touch of spice but is perfectly balanced by the sweet and tangy orange glaze.

Franky’s Club

You can’t go wrong with a good club sandwich. This club is stacked to the sky with house-smoked turkey breast and shaved ham and held together with lettuce, tomato, Swiss cheese, and applewood smoked bacon and smashed between two crispy Texas toast bread slices.

The Franky and Louie

The signature drink at Franky’s—a house-made punch with a mixture of Malibu flavors including pineapple, cranberry, and mango topped with Sierra Mist and garnished with a fresh fruit… this cocktail is just as refreshing as it is fun! Try it in a full-sized beach bucket for you and your friends, and keep the bucket as a souvenir!

Jalapeño Marg

Fresh, house-infused jalapeño tequila gives this classic cocktail a unique Franky and Louie’s spicy twist. If you avoid sweet drinks, give this one a go. The jalapeño margarita has the perfect amount of heat, with a fantastic sweet-and-savory finish.
