“Best Bar Food in the Midwest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2010

I stumbled into this place while in town on business from Mpls and was pleasently surprised by the food. Obviously the locals know all about it because there was almost as many take out out orders as people in the bar and it was packed.
Try the Buffalo Philly Melt.

“Best Cheesy Fries Anywhere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2008

All the food at Francies is the best bar food. Great burgers, sandwiches, generous salads, they are known for their buffalo wings. But you must try their cheesy fries...they are incredible, you will not be disappointed!
