The first eaterie to draw a bullet (”¡) from us. That bullet means Manhattan Franks has great potential to be a 5-wimpy joint and that we just located the bullet key on our computer. Interesting story. Manhattan Franks has a world-class cook from Paris Las Vegas, yet is a delicatessen growing up. The place has been around less than a year and is still seeking an identity in the thriving Sahara/Ft. Apache area. The ID will come from having Sabretts hot dogs, second to none in quality. Sabretts kicks Viennas all over the yard. Manhattan boasted about its burgers so we had to call (we’re poker buffs). The burger is fine, but the American cheese is way too sticky and tough to swallow. Get rid of the cheese and it’s a 4½. Add more atmosphere, fix the falling umbrella outside and we’re doing the high 5. But, we’re there for the Sabretts.
