The Shore just got a whole lot more smokin'. Hailing from Elliot Stables, Frankies has opened its doors in Takapuna to spread around the BBQ-licious love.
The Argentinian BBQ-style eatery features a simple and bright fit-out, on the ever-buzzing Hurstmere Road. Here, you’ll be greeted by the friendly team and one whiff of the BBQ, you’ll find yourself suddenly starved for a taste of the goodness.
Packing that same punch we've all come to love from the original, the menu consists of classic done right.
Our top pick would have to be the heavenly 'From The Garden' eggs bene. Featuring spinach and roasted portobello mushrooms, you won't be left disappointed.
Of course you can't pass up one of their signature pulled BBQ pork, which is slow-cooked for a whopping 16 hours. Not what you’re looking for? Then try one of Frankies legendary heart sandwiches! A show stopper, the El Guacho stars slow-cooked skirt steak, chimichuri, zucchini and herb salad you'll find yourself planning round two as you dine!
To experience to the full taste of an Argentinian BBQ they also offer pizza, burger, empanadas, and fresh pasta options.
Be sure to check out the big smoke for yourself and get down to Takapuna for an unforgettable BBQ experience!
