Have a monthly Italian sub that reminds me of a poor boy from the 1970s. Crunchy French bread that's soft on the inside with lots of Italian meat and vinegar and oil. My father would take me when I was a kid in Bensenville, il.

Stopped for lunch while shopping in the area. Always enjoy stopping here. The Chicken Parm is the best. Service was very good as well. Another great stop!

We went to Franco's for lunch because of all of the rave reviews we read online and being from Little Italy this place is a little closer to home for us so we decided to give it a try.

This sucker was packed with hot delicious turkey and sweet peppers, and was about $5.00...what a deal. But, I'm not going back anymore. The last three times I've... More

After 18 years mom and dad retired and son took over. John has kept the old fashioned way of making baked goods that his dad had, ( nothing is kept over night) and the crust on the bread is as always, the cookies are the best, and their coffee cakes are the best you ever had -bar none.
