I been here a few times over the past 4-5 years. The chicken has always been top notch, fried crisp but moist. A nice change up from KFC or Popeyes. It was still crisp and moist but it seems that something sweet has been added to the batter. Others might like it, but I'm not a fan of the sweetness.... More

KFC is opening a few blocks away from Fran's. Two things I am sure of, Fran's is not worried and KFC does not look at the local competition when granting a franchise. Was hungry and drove by Fran's. Knew what to expect and had the 2 piece dark combo. As usual it was delicious and would blow away the best... More

I stopped for a quick snack and ended with a bucket to go for the family. The fries could have cooked another minute or two, but who's complaining with the moistest fried chicken in the world?

We recently visited Boca Raton where we attended FAU in the mid 1960's. At that time, if you lived on campus, you had to eat in the school cafeteria, but there were days when we were busy and missed a meal there. Those were the days we always visited Frans--four pieces of the very best fried chicken, French fries, and... More

Apparently the oldest restaurant on record in Boca Raton, and by far, the best fried chicken we have ever had. This place has become a habit for us. Not attractive on the outside and small on the inside but the best chicken anywhere and we all know there is a lot of competition. I wish I had their secret recipe.... More

If you want to get really good fried chicken and don't want to visit the colonel or some other local chain restaurant then go to Fran's. It's an institution in Boca Raton since the 60's. Everything is cooked to order so plan ahead. There are a couple of tables inside so you can eat there if you want to but... More

Sometimes you just want to take fried chicken to the beach...or eat in if it's raining. We don't eat fried foods often, but when we decide to this is our go-to place!!

Craving fried chicken today brought us to Frans. The place isn't much to look at but it is clean. Extremely small inside with just a few tables. The menu is simple, what kind of chicken do you want? We tried a white basket of 2 breasts and 2 wings. I liked the flavor of the chicken but the breasts were... More

Maybe not much on the outside, but the best fried chicken on the inside. That's what really counts. Reasonable prices also.
