Lunch with Liz: Frank’s Food Court

3

Last week I went to Frank’s Food Court in Greenburgh to pick up a few sandwiches for my friends for lunch. This place is legendary. It’s in that tiny strip mall along with Staples near Syms and the Greenburgh Library. There must be 10 people behind the counter at any given time, and a line even longer around noon.

There are a ton of really cool sandwich combinations, many named for customers:

I see Gloria’s Wrap, Spike’s, and …. hey! Westchester Magazine!?

Tons of salads in the display counter.

Somehow I can never resist the deviled eggs.

You walk down to the end of the counter to place your order:

You can also check out the hot bar while you’re down there:

It’s also where the sandwich magic happens:

Or the grill magic:

I placed an order of five sandwiches. The guy laughed and told me to come back at 5 o’clock to pick them up:

Then you work your way back to the front of the store to pay:

You can take your lunch to the other side of the deli to eat it:

Or just get it to go.

I got the Northeastern U: turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and ranch on a roll. Now… how to scheme to get a Small Bites or a Liz Johnson sandwich on the menu!? Suggestions, readers?

  1. Since Frank’s doesn’t seem to have a website, posting a pdf of their takeout menu, if one is available, would be a great help. I’m planning to go there tomorrow and will see if I can pickup a menu.
