Every time we come to Chicago, Franksville is always in our plans. The gyros are top notch best I've had anywhere. Service is fast and always friendly. The restaurant is always clean. Also the pizza puffs are just awesome!

Best gyro I have eaten in my life. They don't skimp on the portion size either. Definitely going back next time I am in Chicago.

My family loves the hot dogs, I loved my grilled cheese. There were several other vegetarian choices. We have been here several times and also experience consistent quick service and good food. Reasonable prices too!
