A Trip to the Old Country
Housed in an old home built in 1921, the architecture is that of yesteryear, with brick construction and foot-thick walls. Frank came to Corpus Christi from Sicily by way of Chicago and World War II service in the U.S. Navy. His mother taught him to cook, and he taught us before his retirement in 1973. The Moody family has been proudly serving the Coastal Bend for generations. Sue Moody is retired and currently living in Mesa, Arizona. Sue's son, Mike Moody took over in 1993 and has been serving our beautiful city by the bay. Now his three kids are here on a full time basis. Vanessa is the oldest and she sometimes has her kids here helping and learning the ways of the restaurant. Michael is the middle one and he has mastered the kitchen. The youngest, Matthew, has his wife, Teresa, working along side him as well as raising their two young girls. Vanessa and Teresa make all of the desserts from cheesecakes to tiramisu and many more. Very friendly people who come to enjoy good home cooked meals have always patronized Frank's. We are one of Corpus Christi's best kept secrets.
