Frank’s Famous Chicken and Waffles

Lola Beavers knew she had created a special community hub when the Food Network sent celebrity chef Guy Fieri to showcase her restaurant on the hit television show “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.” And it wouldn’t be the last time the cameras would return to Frank’s Famous Chicken and Waffles. Now in its 10th year, Frank’s appeals to the young and young-at-heart with old-school music and addictive waffles that New Mexico Magazine dubbed “good soul.” 

Even though the business got creative during the pandemic (hosting drive-in movie nights in the restaurant parking lot, adopting food delivery, and offering curbside pickup), they still needed assistance to recover.

With a #TrueGrit loan from DreamSpring, Frank’s Famous Chicken and Waffles was able to incur the expense of carryout supplies, increased labor costs, and equipment needs. Now, the dining room is open, and business is booming!

Frank’s Famous Chicken and Waffles recently opened a new location and is serving up beer and wine (plus karaoke every Tuesday night) along with their Southern fare.
