Addison location is better. Not too many places for a gyro in the area but this was the saltiest gyro i ever had before. Skimpy on meat as well.

Franky's is excellent. It's clean, bright and friendly. Their daily hot dog special can't be beat. 2 Chicago style dogs, fries and a drink for $6.50 Including tax. The beef, Italian sausage, and gyros are all top notch. Typically the portions are enough for two people.

Glad I found it. Not a big place and may be part of a chain, but great menu for anyone who grew up around Chicago; good hot dogs, Italian Beef, Gyros and ribs. Been here several times and the food always came out hot, fast and tasted good. Place was very clean as well. Might not be a place if... More

Great little mom and pop restaurant. Good service and food. My husband and I couldn't even finish the portions were too big. Good value for the money and very convenient to get to. Will be back again!

I was served cold "hot" dogs. Ugh. Typical fast food joint. Some "flash", but how in the world do you serve a cold hot dog??

A basic order from the counter and pick up your food place with terriffic choice. They deliver what you order and you take it to a table and get your own drink. They have a number of specials that are well priced. Fine place for a basic meal!

This restaurant was a nice surprise. The food was quite good and the atmosphere was fun, with a 50's flair. We had gyros and the meat was very high quality, large portions and very, very inexpensive. The service was extremely helpful and friendly. I will definitely return.

So we entered this place and they had at least two signs saying that on Tuesdays their gyro sandwiches are $3.75 "UNLIMITED" which we understood to mean that a patron pays that amount and can get unlimited gyros. Wrong. After I started eating my second, the boss man came to our table and demanded another payment, embarrassing the hell out... More
