READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: Frank's Restaurant, 3843 E. Pima St. Every town has a landmark that local people revere.

Here in the Old Pueblo there is Frank's, an old-fashioned breakfast diner where the regular customers are more loyal than Secret Service agents. Located at the corner of Pima and Alvernon for about ... ever, Frank's serves low-priced, no-frills breakfasts to hundreds and hundreds of people each week. The high-octane coffee and down-to-earth food make the perfect combination to help get Tucsonans on their way to a productive day.
