First off, Bob Francis and his staff are some of the nicest people around and bend over backwards to make you feel at home. We traveled there recently for a tour of Cambridge and had lunch at Francis Restaurant. We used the banquet hall which is quite large, but clean and served the purpose to feed a large group of...

We are in the area each October for a family reunion, and this is the 2nd year we had breakfast here. It is now part of the routine for the weekend as we like the food. Prices are reasonable, service has been good and the location is great. I only know about breakfast choices, but since they are good, I'm... More

Even though we browsed the menu days earlier, we looked things over and still had a tough time deciding, as their menu is extensive ! Mid afternoon on a Sunday when we stopped in. Seated promptly, friendly, attentive staff. Pretty dated inside, yet clean, We sat in the front corridor, kind of like sitting in hall way lol. Didn't know... More

Stopped to eat dinner after doing some geocaching. Two of us had the fish and one had the pasta alfredo. It was enjoyable

Burgers, salads, chicken sandwiches, and pancakes were good. Very low prices and fast service. The three members of the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional.

I do look for non-chain local places to eat when traveling. We had a party of 9 and were seated quickly. The service was good, the food was good. They were very accommodating. I would eat here again if in the area.

They would be so much better if they served a more appealing plate of food. Really dull and simple cheep looking. Wouldn't take much, a pickle slice, sprig of parsley anything. Try serving (fresh bread) with meal, crackers with the salad. The food was bland with not much taste or flavor. Lot of room for improvement without much effort.

We were here as part of a bus tour. We were in a separate room from the restaurant and it was like eating in a basement or garage. There were some Christmas decorations, but the room was cold and not very inviting. The food was served by the staff at a buffet and was mediocre at best. There was chicken... More

This is a locally-owned restaurant that you simply MUST try out. My family stops here almost every time we are in Cambridge. I highly recommend the Sopapillas. Excellent service and VERY reasonable prices.
