Frank’s Hamburger House offers a lipsmacking, tummy rumbling selection of beef whether it’s in their Steakhouse or Hamburger House(s). Both can be found on the Wellingborough Road with a third venue recently opening in Billing. Although the Cogenhoe venue is poorly advertised it nonetheless serves the most delicious burgers (amongst other things).
After booking an hour before arriving to eat we were greeted by not only a friendly team of waitresses but a snazzy, smart interior. It looked impeccably clean that I would happily have eaten my burger straight off the table.
The menu boasts a wonderful selection of burgers, from the Express Lift Tower (double burger, cheese & bacon) to the Middleton Wholesome (burger, bacon, stilton & beer battered onion rings), the latter of which I went for. The bacon was perfectly crispy and the burger brilliantly juicy. It featured just the right amount of stilton and the onion rings were certainly nothing to complain about. The chips… let me tell you about the (bottomless) chips. They had been cooked to perfection and were the right balance of crispy and fluffy. It all came with a great, fresh salad.
On the side we had halloumi with a balsamic glaze. The halloumi was cut into generous sized chunks and went down like a dream.
Overall, service was quick and warm and the food was everything I expected. This isn’t a slapdash hamburger joint but serves up gourmet, tasty burgers. The starters and sharing plates coming out of the kitchen looked incredible, hence why a visit back to Franks is on the agenda.
