This place is just one room so if anyone is smoking in the smoking area (the left side) you will smell it in the non-smoking area. I would have rated my meal 5 stars but the smoke was horrible. We ended up eating very quickly because of the smokers. My comfort food of fried chicken, corn, and mashed potatoes was... More

If you love fried bologna and soup beans and that kind of grub, then this is the place for you! Frances's has been in town for as long as I can remember and the food is why! And they deliver!

Frances's Diner is the perfect place for a down-home meal. My family and I eat here almost every Sunday to enjoy the skillet fried chicken, real mashed potatoes and fresh green beans, when they are in season (there are other wonderful menu choices as well)! They have garden fresh vegetables whenever available. Don't forget to top off your meal with... More

They still have real mashed potatoes. These items were on their Thursday menu. All were more than satisfied. The deserts were great also. Can... More

The place is not bad at all. Their is a smoking and non smoking section but their were more non smokers than smokers. The food was good and not overpriced. If you are looking for a clean greasy spoon this is a good place to try.
