Visited while travelling through the area and found it on trip advisor. The food was excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly. The cost was inexpensive . What more could you ask for. I will be back.

I enjoyed the sandwich and pasta I had here. It is not fine dining, but there is ample seating, and the staff is pleasant. It is also inexpensive. I would go there again when in the area.

I stopped here for lunch looking for something a little bit cheaper than the conventional fare located further down River Road that weren't expensive restaurants, and it ended up being delicious! I'm a bit of a sucker for these small business Portillo's-type places around Chicago, and this place definitely met my expectations. I ordered the Italian beef with extra mozzarella... More

Don't judge this place by the outside. Looks run down but the food is excellent and definitely a place to visit for good beef and sausage.

Everybody at the place I was visiting told me to stop here. Food was a cheesy meaty dream that I would have again. Not alot of seating, but food is ready quick. I feel like I got what I payed for.

I spotted Frannie's on my way to a night at the Comfort Inn which is just down the street. Frannie's is one of those authentic, old school, places that are hard to come by these days. The vibe is totally genuine and classic. The food is mouth watering fantastic! There was so many amazing options to choose from! I went... More
