Fran's chicken is famous - and for good reason. She's only open at night, now - so be sure to look for her at dinner time.

Last night my family and I had dinner with the Lovely Fran and her charming son Jaylen. Grilled Lobster some garlic, some coconut curry, some grilled chicken assorted sides and always some chocolate cake and rum punch served beach side in the evening breeze at a picnic table with many laughs and stories to go around. My favorite might be... More

Good food at a great price. Dinner includes two rum punches, and a piece of cake. Two picnic tables on beach, we met some very interesting people here. Fran has a big personality, very entertaining

An experience to say the least. No bathroom, no drinks other than rum punch and seating can be an adventure. Fran's is a roadside grill on Front Street in Caye Caulker. We showed up and there was a picnic table full of people, thus no seating available. Fran called a few of us over and had us move another picnic... More

What a horrible woman. We were walking towards her kiosk to sit down for dinner. We stopped short to take a photo before sitting down, She yelled out to us that we weren't allowed to take photos till we had paid for dinner. What a shame! We walked straight past and ate at her brothers restaurant up the road. He... More

The bench i was sitting on was almost falling part. The free rum and pineapple drinks used tang. As soon as Fran got us to sit down and order she left and had a heated argument on her cell phone. The chicken had no meat on it, and the fish was so small and full of bones. While eating I... More

The food was pretty tasty, free drinks are a bonus but kinda have to push for them & they are reluctant. Board said chocolate cake was included & we were told by Fran at the end that it wasn't included & she hadn't said anything about the cake (it was written on the menu board). Fran was fairly sullen at... More

We were a group, and the rum drinks that are served are watered down, the food is overpriced - compared to other places on the island.

I'm pretty sure our price doubled by the time we left there, but had too much to drink to realize it until the next morning. Serving sizes were small to say the least - not impressed and definitely would not recommend this place - keep walking when they hail you to sit down...
