Franky & Johnny's closed some time ago. It was a dive bar with really tasty crawfish.

Frankie & Johnny's is the "Under New Management" resurrection of the classic, all gussied up . . . well, OK, elevated from a "dive" bar to a local bar/hangout. They brightened up the interior a bit, added a porch with outdoor seating, added more brews on tap, and kept the great crawfish . . . had no trouble downing a couple of pitchers, a couple of orders of red beans & rice (one with a side of andouille; the other with a side of fried chicken), and eight pounds.

Yum!
