If the woman who owns the hair salon is connected to this, I won't waste my time, or money. She is very rude and won't go back to her for a hair cut, and certainly won't eat at any place she is associated with.
yes she owns it for her mother to run it, i agree she is rude and cant cut hair, but the massages are good

Ilion does need a grocery store, miss great american, Melrose in frankfort is too expensive, you can go next door to stewarts and get things cheaper lol. i would love to see price chopper come to ilion or frankfort, give walmart a run for their money in the grocery section. Walmart meat sucks, its always frozen, then thawed. miss Vinney's meat market, he was awesome, but small buisness just cant compete

Froggy's needs just a couple more of those signs outside. If you don't have enough signs, you can't get customers.

Remember, YOUR tax dollars helped create that pole barn! Lol

If you read the minutes from the village board meeting, you'll see where Sorrento's asked if they can put picnic tables outside. After some discussion, the village board decided to allow "cafe style" tables and chairs outside of Sorrento's. Seriously, did anyone actually LOOK at the plans that Froggy's submitted to build a pole barn on the busiest corner in Ilion? Sorrento's has a quality building but can't put picnic tables outside (I agree that cafe style would be a better choice, BTW), yet Froggy's even exists outside of the marina or one of Ilion's parks?! That whole pole barn with metal roof thing would look GREAT in Russell Park, but downtown it's an eyesore.

I guess everyone liked the look of the pre-Froggy cornor. Just to refresh your memory it was dirt, weeds, and trash. To those of you who don't like this refreshing, cheerful now-Froggy cornor you're the people who never are satisfied with anything..no wonder Ilion is stuck in its downward spiral..do you ever, Ever have a positive comment. Give this place a chance..they are a new business and the food is very good.

'very good food' is a relative statement. It can mean different things to different people.

I think Froggy's needs a few more flags and banners so that they can really embrace the circus. "Deep fried Twinkies"! It's no wonder why this area cannot attract quality employers. Besides for the huge lack of sophistication, who wants to supply health care for a bunch of obese smokers with too many children at home?

You'd be surprised at how successful a healthy, non-smoker can become in this valley. Not hard to look better then the herd!

Ilion Stewarts has a lot of good quick and easy food ideas. Decent prices too! They make fresh cold sandwhiches and subs daily(can call in orders on subs too), have chili daily, hot dogs(with cheap 2 for deal)which includes kielbasa and cajun dogs also for the same price,(no charge for condiments!) they have donuts(with a 2 for deal), danishes, muffins, apple fritters, bagels, english muffin, hardrolls-(plain, buttered, peanutbutter and butter, peanut butter and jelly), their coffee has a pastery special every week too! I like that you can get international delight with the coffee too. If you want tea...they even have brewed tea! really just give them a try...Have indoor and outdoor seating if you want to eat there.

wow... Mr Obvious and Facts, you 2 are dicks. Froggy's looks better than the barren corner of dirt it replaced and you know it. Why do you have a haard on for them? personal vendetta? You on the village board? did I say you 2 are dicks?

I go by there every day on my way home from work at lunchtime. Over the past two weeks, I have not seen one car nor a person there. Guess everybody has figured out that they aren't very good.

What is my problem? I'll be glad to share it. All those signs and banners are an eyesore, certainly not a professional look (oops, I forgot, Ilion isn't a professional place). I went there 1 time for lunch,$10 and 20 minutes later I got my food. Slow and overpriced. Today I bought a small roast beef sub from Francos for lunch.$5 and under 5 minutes later I had a sandwich that was JAM PACKED with roast beef and cheese, so much that half was lunch and half was dinner.

One of the things I ordered was a "smoothie". Now, I make smoothies at home, and I've had smoothies from places such as Mr. Smoothie, Planet Smoothie, King Smoothie, etc.... and smoothies should be made from FRUIT - either frozen or fresh. Their version of a smoothie was nothing more then syrup and ice blended together. What does THAT tell you about the health and sophistication of an area?!

I recommend you read or watch "Food, Inc"

they opened too late in the year. they close too early. they are too expensive. they are more worried about marketing and trying to sell "new wacky crap" than putting out good fairly simple food at a fair price. they are too slow... i couldnt imagine what they would do if they actually got busy. and a seasonal business is closed sundaymonday and holidays? good luck froggys

Wow.... the answer to your rant would be to just not go there anymore. However, you feel compelled to come on TOPIX, one of the most "professional" and "sophisticated" gossip sites on the internet *wink, wink*.
I do watch Food Network, amongst others, however Food Inc doesnt ring a bell... what channel is that?
As for deep friend twinkies. I distinctly remember one show that was about decadent dessert ideas and they were deep frying candy bars, twinkies, anything you could think of that most ppl didn't think of, and were making a killing doing it. Perhaps the owners of Froggy's watched that episode on Food Network as well.

Sorry I just think you're a pretentious prick. Stick to Francos. I hear Harriet is working back there, watch out for the pubes.

Did you see their new sign? This one puts the rest of their signs to shame. Their menu is now on a huge banner. lmao. I guess they really need people to know that they sell food there!

The best intelligent reply you can come up with on this 'professional' website as you call it is to call me a dick? Well that pretty much sums up your lack of mental capacity.

Food, Inc.

Isn't that a documentary about the safety of our food supply?

Perhaps these folks need, "Supersize Me".
