If you just want the best fried chicken ever and in a hole in the wall atmosphere this is the best chicken place in South Florida that I have found. The place is legendary and has been around many many years. Always fresh and always so good!!

It looks like a hole in the wall, mostly for take out orders, but the fried chicken is superb. Fran's is a Boca landmark, going back many years. For a while until about a year ago, it was under ownership that made Fran's Kosher. It was still good, but Kosher apparently didn't work. It is now back to its non-Kosher... More

So why would anyone rate a fried Chicken joint Excellent?! Well because I go there for fried chicken and it's excellent fried chicken. Good local folks some who like to fish, fried chicken and like Pompano/Boca life style without excessive pomp and cost. It's a hole in the wall so don't wear your $400 Nikes and $50 Ambercombie & Fitch... More

Stopped here for lunch and had the two piece white meat lunch with coleslaw and fries. The chicken was crispy & moist just the way it's supposed to be. There coleslaw needs a better dressing and the french fries are okay.

I had some of the best fried chicken I have ever had at Fran's Fried Chicken. When talking with current owner Mike Stuart, I learned that Fran's has been around for 50 years and they are using the same recipe Fran used when she opened the restaurant...The recipe worked half a century ago and it certainly works today. I had... More

Many Boca Raton residents regard Fran's as the best place for fried chicken. Basically, Fran's is a take-out place only. There are a couple of tables if you insist on eating in, but that doesn't make it a restaurant. Because Fran's is kosher, it is not open on Friday night or Saturday (the Jewish sabbath) or on Jewish holidays. Fran's... More

I consider myself a chicken gourmet. Im from the home of Fried Chicken, which is Memphis TN. Frans Chicken can move to Memphis anytime she wants. The chicken was tasty, fried just right and left me longing for me. It was crispy without being hard and the chicken was juicy and spiced just right. Ill be back.

We were told that the fried chicken is the best..even if you don't look for kosher food. The recommendations were spot on....yummy fried chicken. We were told it was a dive in an "iffy" location - also spot on. Truth is, you can't eat in even if you wanted to. There was a counter with ONE stool. A couple ate... More

Fried chicken in a very plain setting. The location could use an upgrade. We got the dinner dark meal special with four pieces (small pieces), coleslaw, fries (cooked well done/crispy), and a roll. It was all okay.
