Good Place to Eat

Every time we go to Chicago to visit Family we stop at Frannies Beef for their Italian Beef and Chicago Dog. We really enjoy visiting with the owner. He is very friendly and gives us great service.

Time and Time again this place just delivers!! Great hot dogs and beef, reasonable prices, and a great staff who will chat it up while you wait for your food. This place should be on your radar if you want real good food rather than a tourist attraction

I want to come back and try everything. Local place with wide menu of unique local fare. If I lived here this would be a weekly or more place. Nothing to look at nut if you came from where I did this is what you want.

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
