WOW! Great service and delicious food!

Editorial review from GrubHub 3/2/2014

Food was good, but it took an hour and a half to arrive and was pretty cold. I blame the weather and my distance from the restaurant more than anything. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 1/23/2014

Absolutely delicious, big portions and friendly delivery! Delivery was not super fast and a little misleading but still made it in the typical hour time frame grubhub gives after you order your food so don't worry if it is not perfectly on time. Not a huge biggy, but I know some might complain. The man who delivered it was super friendly and awesome! They packed the food efficiently too, right down to the cup of fresh squeezed orange juice. Food was still pretty warm (though I still popped it in the microwave for 30 seconds to be pipping hot) and I definitely recommend the skillet with scrambled eggs and chicken sausage, so good! Also the pancakes were very thick and fluffy and amazing!!! Definitely ordering from here again when I have a breakfast craving!! :D more

TURKEY RUBEN! 11/6/2006

What can you say....France's is a great sandwich shop especially the Turkey Ruben! This is the place to go when you are in need of a good sandwich. They use real fresh roasted turkey and it really makes a difference. Fortunately (or unfortunately for my hips) France's is in walking distance from our home. The only drawback is that the sandwiches are so good - and big that we never have enough room to try any desserts. The apple pie looks amazing though! Pros: Great Sandwiches, Comfort Foods Cons: Long Wait on Weekends more

Love that Frances! 3/23/2006

Frances' has been around forever and while the current location lacks some of the charm of it's former digs (about a block away). the food remains it's #1 draw. Try going at an off-time (3 PM or so), as it tends to get busy at lunch and dinner. Their deli sandwiches are the best west of Big Apple...try the pastrami (hot, of course)! Make a pig of yourself with the pickle bowl and they will bring more with a smile! Pros: True Jewish Deli Cons: Hard to find parking more

Great Enviornment, Great Food! 1/14/2006

It is a very cute cafe with great food. I have eaten there twice and loved both things that I have had and so have my dine along friends. I highly recommend everything that I have tasted and seen on the menu. The omelettes are huge and very good! Pros: Lots of Room, Friendly Staff, Very laid back Cons: slower service more

Great Little Joint 9/28/2004

My wife and I are from a small farming community in S. Ill. and can appreciate a good meal and deal, we rode our bikes up from downtown searching for Wrigley Field, along the way we stumbled across this fine little deli...there was no designated bike parking so we just tied up to a meter right outside the deli, because of the large windows facing the street we were able to take in the hustle of a Chicago monday noon rush..fascinating at the very least ....anyhow along with the great show, F.D.'s price, service, food and help were all excellent. Pros: Food, Price more

Great sandwiches and shakes 3/17/2003

A good lincoln park deli with great sandwiches and milkshakes more

Almost New York 12/9/2002

The feel, the crowd, the noise, the taste - all reminiscent of New York's great delis, but with a decidedly Chicago twist. Great sandwiches - my personal favorite is the Lincoln Park. All portions are generously midwestern sized. Pros: quick service, great food, noisy Cons: no parking, crowded on weekends, no frills dining more

Don't miss this deli 8/20/2002

An incredible deli based in Lincoln Park. They only use REAL deli meat (none of that processed stuff) and have the best milkshakes. Great place to grab either lunch or breakfast. (And you can order take-out, too.) more
