Frank's BBQ in Novato - CLOSED

Civil Bear Sep 26, 2008 03:10 PM

Finally got around to checking out Franks' BBQ in Novato, only to find hand-written signs in the windows stating that Frank's is closed "until farther (sic) notice."

Anyone know what is up with that?

    Don't know about the status of the restaurant itself, but I saw the van driving in the Costco parking lot this morning, so maybe he's just doing catering?

      Having tried Frank's a few weeks ago, I'm not surprised. It was about the worst BBQ I've had in a long time. He may have been at Costco buying some cooked ribs.

        I thought his ribs weren't bad at all except, and it's a big except, I actively disliked that green rub that was on them.

          I have to agree with Mick, I liked the people and the place and wanted to like the ribs, but I did not like the stuff on them. It tasted like dried rosemary, which is off-putting on barbecued ribs.
