Yum, Yum, Yum!!! The infamous egg and pepper sandwich is to die for and not just for Lent Friday's. Sounds like the most simple sandwich, but it's perfected! The tuna salad is so good! The tuna is mixed perfect with tweeny tiny veggies for crunch. Be ready to want to order everything you see and smell - Pizza!!! The take... More

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. Everything looked delicious, but lacked quality and flavor. We were very disappointed. The sandwiches and pizzas are very bready and the... More

I used to stop at this little Italian deli a few times a month for lunch. My go to was always the Italian turkey sandwhich...just like an Italian beef but with turkey. 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

Made to order sandwiches are awesome! The daily specials are unbelievable along with numerous dessert options. My favorite side item is the pasta salad-it's awesome! You must try this place!

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. AND he... More

For 20 years, this little Bakery and Deli hidden away off the Main road, has produced The Best Italian cookies, pasteries, bread and rolls the way they are supposed to be by Mr. Franco. Mrs. Franco has made the best Bolognese, Parmigiana, Mostaccioli, and Subs. My wife comes for the bakery goods, and I come for the Deli goods and... More

Franco's has the best Italian food in the burbs, period. Everything is good, you can't go wrong. The subs are all fresh and can be made to order, but my personal favorite is the American on focaccia which is premade in the deli case. It's the most perfect sandwich to ever be made. All of the pastas and specials are... More
