Good Place for Food on the Go. Good Italian Beef.

Can't complain. Pretty typical foods. Burgers, hot dogs, and Italian beef sandwiches. Their delivery service is good too, as we have utilized it a couple of times. This place is worth a shot, if you don't feel like cooking lunch or dinner.

You can't come to the burbs, of CHI TOWN, without having a CHICAGO DOG or BEEF, forget those chain restaurants, and come to FRANNIES, a hometown fav. Not a fancy place, but a great place to chow down. Personally my favorite is the beef, but you won't be disappointed in anything. It's not a skimpy sandwich, lots of yummy italian... More

The Italian Beef is pretty good but the rest of the menu is hit and miss. Friendly but slow service.

Went in early because i only had so much time to get my chicago dog, italian beef, and italian sausage on my trip to Chicago so I was on a mission and drove by this place and stopped. Food was excellent and classic to the quality Chicago "staples" - super good.

We stayed at the Comfort Suite hotel almost next to Frannies and decided that we had to pop over and try an Italian beef. It was a quick 3 minute walk from the hotel and once inside it was clear that this was the type of "joint" you long for and opnce found you become a loyal customer. It is... More

I recommend the beef with the Italian chopped tomatoes. It's the only place that I know that serves it.

Just hot dogs! And Italian Beef. Reminds me of home and such a change from the usual, chain nonsense.

I like to try new quick dives and I've been driving past this one for years. It looks like the genuine article and certainly divey enough! I arrived around 8PM and they were beginning to close down. I got the Italian Beef and the new "stacked" fries. I could have made pretty much the whole ensemble myself . The fries... More

We're Californians of Chicago descent (well, one of us) and never miss Frannie's on our frequent trips back to visit Mom. Today we took her with us. She's an alzheimers patient, and struggles some with chewing and swallowing. At Frannies, the owner helped us make her a special Italian Beef, with xtra gravy and light meat. Sweet peppers, of course.... More
