In 1972, when The Godfather won an Oscar for Best Picture, Frank Basile opened a simple diner in midtown Tucson. Thirty-two years later, Frank's is still making us an offer we can't refuse. Ownership and staff have changed since its doors opened, but breakfast is as good as ever. Perfectly cooked eggs, fluffy pancakes, fast service and a modest bill are all part of the pleasure of Frank's. The morning Breakfast Club might bring together businessmen, soccer moms and hungry students. But they all have one thing in common: the love of a good breakfast. Get there before 9 a.m. during the week, and get two eggs, potatoes and biscuit for $1.50 plus tax. With that offer, who can resist making this Diner a place to call home?
