I have eaten the dogs, burgers, and Italian beef and have found all to be delicious and tasty. Good size portions for each. The fries are done well and not greasy. The Staff are wonderful and efficient. Worth the visit to this Deerfield location. Parking...More

Great place to get a good hotdog and fries. They do not claim to be Chicago dog's, so if you are looking for the neon green relish try somewhere else

It's just a hole-in-the-wall place, but had the best dog I've had yet in Chicagoland. Char-dog was really high quality beef. Well grilled. With just the condiments I wanted. And I could pretend I was having a healthy meal by accompanying my char dog with...More

We were a little bit lost on a trip to Chicago, but we were profoundly happy to find Dear Franks - a grill with a good selection of hot dogs, sausages, burgers and gyros. Everything we saw looked good - and what we had -...More

OK, if you're into health conscious dining, apart from the fire-grilled chicken breasts, Dear Franks probably wouldn't be your reflexive go-to establishment. However, if you like burgers, grilled-hot-dogs, French-fries that aren't reconstituted, Gyros and a low-key atmosphere, Dear Franks will likely satisfy you. There's parking...More
