Editorial review from Citysearch 7/28/2013

I have eaten there 100s of time and never had one bad experience. I am sad it closed down since it was in a convenient and fun location. more

Great burgers and fried mushrooms 9/4/2009

We saw Fran's on the food network and decided to try it ourselves. They have the BEST hamburgers and fried mushrooms my family and I have ever had! My kids are not fans of hamburgers, but they loved the burgers at FRAN's. I got the jalepeno cheese burger and my husband got the a cheeseburger, both we absolutely delicious! more

Best Fried Mushrooms in Austin! 4/29/2009

My family has been going to dans/frans for years. Don't get me wrong, I love Dans hamburgers; but I will make the drive from Buda just to have Frans friend mushrooms. They are not overly battered unlike some places, and are bite sized. The ranch they have there compliments it well. \r For awhile Frans had tooken away the mushrooms, you better believe I was there protesting it!\r Most def worth the drive. Staff is super friendly. Pros: Delicious Mushrooms Cons: Hard to find seating during lunch/dinner time more

great burger 3/9/2009

This place has one of of not the best burger in austin for the price. My wife and I can eat there for under 14 bucks. Shockingly the same as dans it just tastes better ( I dont get it either) Not a huge fan of there fries (there alittle to greasy for my taste) but I go there for burgers not fries. If anyone vists Austin this is a must eat at place in austin. Great Milkshakes too Pros: awsome burger Cons: not so awsome fries more

average food 6/9/2008

Maybe they do have the ""best hamburgers in Austin"" but there wasn't anything spectacular about them. The shake was good. The service was prompt and employees were friendly. more

Best Burgers Around 6/14/2005

The hanmburgers here are reminiscent of those homemade hamburgers done with handcut fries by your mother on a Sunday Afternoon. The fried mushrooms are the best i have ever tasted. The products they use are definetley fresh, crisp and tasty. You could go to a gourmet place to grab a burger, but why? Going to Fran's reminds me of Alice's diner a little from that T.V. show, the smell off beef frying on the grill is thick in the air, and the service is fast and freindly, if you ask me eating a burger is more than just the taste, whih is exceptional here,it's also about the attitude in which it is presented. Highly recommended!!! Pros: Hamburgers, Mushrooms, Fries Cons: Long Wait, Crowded more

Oh boy those burgers 4/20/2003

Best burgers in Austin. Greasy too. Don't go there on a diet but if you're not on a diet then you will be very happy with the burgers. The must've recently cleaned their soda machine because it started tasting a lot better. Pros: Best burgers, Good fries, Inexpensive Cons: Soda can taste funny more

Best Burger In Town 7/22/2002

Fran's is a great, greasy burger! They are very close to Dan's South (north isn't great), as they were husband and wife at one time. The thing that makes Fran's worth the drive is they serve fried mushrooms as well as fries and o-rings. Her burger also just tastes better. Pros: Fried Mushrooms more

Darn good burger 5/20/2002

I like the old school feeling of this place. The burgers were very good and the fries weren't bad either. more
