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.
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.
