How to get franks in Austin: Grab your franks.
That’s the advice you’ll get when you take the first bite of the restaurant that’s set to open this weekend.
The Austin-based chain of pizzerias will open this Saturday at 10 a.m. at 9500 North Loop Road in the new, 2,700-square-foot space located just a few blocks from the old Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
The restaurant will be staffed by four chefs, and the first customer will get a slice of franks, a spicy cheese pizza topped with diced onions, tomato, pepper and basil.
And there will be beer.
The first batch of beer will be made in-house by Franks Brewing Co. The beer will come in a 12-ounce can.

The menu will include fresh, seasonal ingredients and local cheeses and herbs.
It will be served with homemade sauces and hand-made salads, he said.
“We’re excited to be opening this restaurant and helping to bring a new level of comfort and excitement to Austinites,” said Frans.
“We’re committed to bringing you the best pizza in the area.”
Austin, TX – AUSTIN (AP) – A new Austin-area pizza chain is about to open in Austin.
Franks Bier is opening a location just a block from the Alamo Dunes, a large outdoor cinema and amphitheater that opened in 2011.
It is located in the same space where the theater is located.
Owner David Franks said he’s happy to have his restaurant, which opened in 2012 in the old Hollywood theater on North Loop Drive, in Austin because it will give the city a new experience.
The Austin-born restaurant chain, which has opened in Austin and Austin, San Antonio and New York City, said the restaurant will offer a mix of classic American cuisine, including pizzas and sandwiches, with fresh seasonal ingredients, including herbs and local cheese.
Frans said he has received many requests from restaurants in Austin to have the new location, which will be open Saturday, Sept. 24, but he will be in Austin Monday to open the new restaurant.
The restaurant will serve its food in-person, as well as on-site, at a separate restaurant in the building.
The new location is in a historic building that once housed the Hollywood Theatre, and it will be used for special events and concerts, Frans said.
The new restaurant will have a full-service restaurant, but Frans expects to have it on-hand for events and events only.
“It’s a very special opportunity to bring Austin to a new, higher level of experience,” Frans told the Austin American-Statesman.
“As a fan of the arts, I think this will bring Austin closer to what I love to see.
I think it’s going to be a great opportunity to give Austin a new sense of history and to really bring the city closer to something that I love.”
The Austin American Statesman reported last week that Austin is one of a handful of U.S. cities that is expanding its food options, and Frans’ restaurant will open in a space that was previously home to the theater.
The theater was a major draw for the city for more than a century, with performances and performances in movies and television shows.
It closed in the early 1900s.
