#138: Frank's Place

Three big screen TVs.  A menu of homecooking meets bar food.  Karaoke every other Friday.  Full bar, even an adjoining liquor shop.  If you could talk the owner into renting you the apartment above the bar, you'd never have to leave.

As a true "neighborhood bar" of South Bend, Frank's Place relies on the immediate neighbors of the bar as well as a smattering of loyal South Bend regulars.  Personally, I've viewed Frank's as the ideal place for group watch of anything from an NBA game to the President's State of the Union Address.  It's a great place to sit back, relax with friends, and watch whatever might be on one of the three big screen TVs.  Tucked into the neighborhood just northwest of downtown, Frank's can be an alternate to the downtown bars on a weekend night or a great place for a drink and a bite to eat after work.  Like a couple of the other bars we've featured for our pre-Mardi Gras pub crawl, this bar doesn't bother with frills or gimmicks.  It's simple, honest, and pure South Bend.

Where: 327 W Marion Street, South Bend
When: Open for lunch, dinner, and after-hours
Phone: (574) 232-2277
Tip: Rumor has it that there's 25 cent wings on Wednesdays.....but I've yet to verify this for myself.
