“A bit greasy”

This is more of a nostalgia type visit than a restaurant experience. Locals eat there. The food is cheap and the location is great. Other than that, I would avoid this place unless you really like greasy hamburgers.

I visited both Fran's locations on a recent Austin trip. The burger at the South Congress location was fresh and tasty. Plenty of toppings and a toasted bun. I had breakfast at the Fran's that is just off 290 and east of I 35. Good breakfast with fluffy biscuits.

It is a time travelling, no question, I mean the place. First I felt being in a movie with those tables, chairs and things on the wall. And here comes the BURGER. Amazing. All the time, same quality, big size and the taste-it makes difference.
Don't miss Fran's once you are in Austin!

I've been eating Fran's burgers since the 80s, and they've only gotten better. They have an occasional off day, but then an occasional near-nirvana burger. The place could stand a face-lift these days, it's looking appropriately shabby for a hamburger stand that's been around forever.

Burgers were pretty good. Cleanliness is a bit questionable. Decent place for a quick bite to eat.
