Frannie's beef is the most flavorful beef ever. Love their Italian Ice selection as well. Delicious.

This place has an intriguing interior and excellent food. All three of our orders were filling. Just ask lots of questions in order to get exactly what you want.

I've lived near Frannies my whole life and it's always a staple of the area. The hot dogs are my favorite go to. My boyfriend swears by their cheeseburgers. Everything is so delicious and made right there fresh. We go all the time.

Its actually my second time at Frannies and it was good! I replaced the fries with onion rings and it was delicious! So if you are looking for a quick grab for lunch this is the place.

Pleasantly surprised to walk to Frannies from our hotel and discovered a delightful dining experience! I had the Italian Beef special and an Italian Lemonade, Fabulous! The beef was soooo good. The Lemonade is like a frozen shaved ice drink, and made fresh! Even in the December weather it was refreshing!! Brought it back to the hotel and cranked up... More

Best beef in Chicago. Al's on Taylor is good, and you can't go wrong with Johnnie's in Elmwood Park, but Frannie's is the total package. Hot peppers are made there, bread is good, gravy is good, and beef is great. Really like the hot dogs, too, and if you're in the mood to try something a little different, try the... More

Very informal, tiny, no frills beef and hot dog place. What I love about this place are the fries. They are among the best and you get lots of them with combo meals. Their gyros is a surprising good choice here. And yes, they have great Italian beef too. Convenient spot to go as an alternative to all the nearby... More

Had the combo and a pineapple lemonade. Very good and the lemonade lasted the whole "L" ride downtown. Lemonade is actually a flavored ice drink. I will go back.

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.

My daughter and I stayed at a hotel close to the O'Hare airport and were looking for someplace to eat. An Internet search gave Frannies Beef as a local place within walking distance of out hotel. When we walked in I was thinking burger or gyro, but the owner told me people come to their restaurant for the beef sandwiches,... More
