In 1940, Francis “Fran” Deck opened Fran’s Restaurant, a modest, ten-stool diner at Yonge and St. Clair.

Over the years, Fran’s has become famous for several dishes, most notably the Banquet Burger, which Fran Deck invented in 1940. Other diner classics that remain a comfort food tradition include Fran’s famous chilli, award-winning rice pudding and homemade apple pie!

Today, Fran’s is a family-owned and operated Toronto institution known for its home-style cooking and warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Welcome home to Fran’s!
