Franks Philadelphia in Costa Mesa
Stumbled on this place yesterday. Great find. Wonderful little joint. Big meaty, cheese steaks, tasty fresh cut fries, friendly owner & staff. Just north of the Post Office. A large cheese steak & order of fries is a belly buster. yum

Agreed, this place has the best Philly cheesesteaks in OC. Better than most of the steaks I've had in Philly.
Went to Frank's tonight and came away very disappointed. I ordered the Frank's Special which is basically a cheesesteak with hot peppers. When I got home I found that there were no hot peppers that I could taste. The fries (I ordered them well done) were cooked well but had zero seasoning on them. Not even a little salt.
I've been going to John's Philly Grill and Philly's Best but decided to try Frank's based on this thread. In my opinion both other places are better.
I'd have to say that I will probably not be back. If I do go back I'll be trying a different sandwich (sausage or maybe BBQ beef).
