It would be hard to find a seat where you don't have a good view of a screen.

Frankie's Sports Bar And Grill Should Make Rangers Fans Happy

Each week City of Ate will give you the lowdown on a local happy hour in Quittin' Time, with the details on why you should or shouldn't take up the featured bar or restaurant on its drink specials.

Where: Frankie's Sports Bar And Grill, 3227 McKinney Ave., 214-999-8932

When: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday

What: $1 off drinks, plus additional food or drink specials Monday through Thursday

Why: Because you don't want to miss it when your Texas Rangers take on Tampa Bay at 1:37 p.m. tomorrow, and with more than 30 HD TV screens including two 10-foot projection screens, you're pretty sure to get a good seat. Cheap drinks for Uptown and $3 margaritas all day Thursdays adds to the appeal.

And the food, served in gargantuan portions, isn't bad either.

With an outpost in Lewisville as well as Uptown, Frankie's is a two-location business -- though with its clean, generic sports-bar decor and attitude-filled menu (Still calling them "Freedom Fries" and "Freedom Dip," seriously?) it could easily pass as an outpost of a national chain of bars. If you need to walk around during the seventh inning stretch, the museum-worthy collection of Cowboys memorabilia lining the walls is worth browsing.

But when you're concentrating on an afternoon ballgame, it doesn't matter if you're in a scenester hangout, a lounge filled with Ed Hardy shirts and Cosmo-drinking arm candy or a run-of-the-mill sports bar, as long as you've got a seat with a good view of the screen. At Frankie's, that's all but guaranteed.
