Una volta non basta

Dopo la prima visita per il brunch la domenica abbiamo deciso di tornare il giorno dopo per la cena (con bonus serata trivia!). Sapori intensi e abbinamenti guduriosi.

Pros: Ampia scelta di burgers e sandwiches, Ingredienti di qualità , Locale curato e pulito.

Food absolutely amazing

Three of us went there. Had the juicy lucy, francis burger and the crazy good chicken sandwich! I would eat that chicken sandwhich everyday of my life

You get 4 stars because forced 20% gratuity on three people when I had to get up and actually go get the tab because no server came over to give it to us. Failed to finish the job.

Cons: Forced gratuity

I am not exaggerating at all when I say that this is the best burger I have ever had - and I am NOT a Vegan. I had the Jucy Lucy with "Bacon" and - I am still thinking about it two days later. So good. Run, don't walk to Francis - you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Excellent food, Fun atmosphere, Outstanding service

Cons: I wanted more info about the sauces on the eMenu

Great outdoor weekend brunch spot

Excellent plant-based burger joint with spacious restaurant seating, full bar, and limited outside seating. Now with good brunch options!

Featuring house made vegan chicken for the chicken and waffles that is simply excellent; the vegan butter on the waffles with the real maple syrup was another high point.

Also really liked the house-made bacon and the really it tasted with the full stack of the (Minnesota-level) spicy breakfast sandwich.

Excellent faux-chicken burgers

The prices are reasonable. The food is great. It's a no-tipping establishment (yea!).

It has a fairly small menu consisting of mostly burgers and faux-chicken burgers. They also serve chicken nuggets, but I didn't order them. The burgers are excellent, but there are other places with equally good burgers in the cities. It's the faux-chicken burgers that really impressed me -- they were the best I've had anywhere.

I went with a non-vegan friend who hasn't had a lot of experience with the vegan food scene, and they really liked it, so that's high praise.

It's also more kid-friendly than many vegan establishments: They have crayons, and a coloring sheet.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Kid friendly

Upscale fast food

We enjoyed our burgers and fries, and would come back, but I've had similar vegan burgers elsewhere, so it wasn't amazing, just good.

Tasty Burgers!!

The burgers are great. 2 of us had impossible 1 had the black bean patty. All were great. For some reason we didn’t get the carafe of water that other tables got which was a bummer because the glasses are tiny and the waitstaff isn’t around.

Pros: Yummm

Cons: Pricy, Adds tip for you , NO parking

Has potential but messed up gf order

I hate to write a bad review as I love a fully vegan restaurant near me, but I didn’t have the greatest experience. It was a bit awkward ordering with the barcode system and having our friends order be added to ours. So the waitress took our order manually. 2 of us ordered the gluten free bun and didn’t realize until we almost finished it that they were not gluten free! I have an allergy , not super serious as I can handle some contamination but not an entire bun usually - thankfully I did not break into hives. We let the staff know and they did not seem all that concerned and we had to ask them to not charge us the extra fee for gf. They didn’t offer to comp anything or make us another one. But it was very greasy and the fries were so salty we could not finish them. So I don’t think I’d want anymore anyway. Another thing is $1.50 for other sauces seems super high. The bacon was super burnt on our friends burger and Also it was very loud so you can’t hear anyone talking. Just a note if that is not your vibe. On the plus side, the homemade bean burger is excellent. And the fries would probably be excellent if a lot less salty. Maybe they could ask how salty you want or have salt on the table for people who like that. I hope they improve and wish them the best of luck…

Francis lives up to the hype❣️

Great food that just happens to be vegan. Love the bar vibe and cool, artsy space. I will probably get the bacon on everything. Delicious!

You will not find a better burger joint!

There are burger joints, and then there is Francis Burger!! This place offers the ambience of one of those uptight restaurants, the staff you expect from any NE bar (friendly and fun), and the food...OMG, the food. Can we talk about the food for a minute?

I started off with the cup of chili. I believe the actual name was "to die for chili"! If not, they should rename it, because it is to die for - 100%. Then I followed it up with a bacon cheese burger and what I seem to recall the most amazing fries I have ever had. Not kidding, they were unbelievably good, and they are fries. The burger came with tomato, lettuce, onion and the "holy sh*t" Francis sauce (pardon my French). I could have eaten 10 of these burgers and not felt guilty at all. For my drink I had a coke, and not just any Coke, an ice cold (glass) bottle of Coca~Cola, like grandma used to serve!

BTW, if you like to choose your favorite sauce, Francis Burger has a list that you will not believe!! I had the BBQ Aioli for my incredible fries! Like everything else, it was outstanding...

If I could give them 10 stars I would...you are missing out on life if you do not make this your go-to burger joint! See you there!!!

Vegetarian options: What can I say?! Vegan options that every vegetarian on the planet will want to have. Again, and again, and again (you get the picture)...

Kid-friendliness: Families, kids, or singles will all find the menu and the atmosphere intoxicating. Fun environment, great food, perfect family place to eat.

Dietary restrictions: This is an all VEGAN menu, top to bottom. Including the bar items as well. So don't let the bacon cheeseburger fool you in name. It was definitely the best burger I have ever eaten, but it was 100% Vegan!

Pros: Atmosphere, Food is incredible, The staff is friendly and fun

Cons: I just could not eat enough...but that's on me, How much I want to come back, over and over again!, Maybe the parking, but who cares - this place rock

Best vegan burgers?

Usually, a burger is the default vegan option for any restaurant, so they rarely excite me anymore. We went to this place expecting a typical burger joint, but the baconator was probably the best vegan burger I’ve had to date. Not to mention, the chicken sandwich is pretty spectacular.

I see people complaining about 20% service fee.
This IS technically non-tipping and ensures everyone working that day gets paid for the amount they worked. I don’t like the way tipping works in the restaurant industry, but people wouldn’t make a living wage without that fee…so maybe think about that before complaining.

Ordering online meant we could order whenever and add whatever we wanted w/o having to flag down a waiter and wasn’t a problem. I thought the staff was actually more attentive because they didn’t have to deal with taking and inputting orders.

Pros: Real good food , Great service

Cons: Slightly expensive

Masterful vegan Americana

Just the kind of stuff you crave. We got some Francis cheeseburgers with bacon on them. Every piece was perfect. Even the buns were divine. We also got some cheeseburger chilli fries which were excellent. And a yummy sprinkle cookie. The atmosphere was lovely like a nice bar. Will definitely be back.

Pricey it mostly worth it

4.5/5 on our first go. We went in their first couple weeks.

My juicy came out not very hot and the gf bun was crumbly. Not what a juicy should be, not much cheese.

The baconator though...is life changing. Their homemade seitan bacon is the most real tasting thing we've had. The burger tasted like a junior bacon cheeseburger from Wendy's. Phenom.
Fries were decent! Staff was super friendly.

Pretty pricey!

Pros: Tasty bacon!, Gf options , Friendly staff

Cons: Pricey, Parking sucks

Absolutely awesome!

We ordered the juicy lucy and the chicken bacon ranch sandwich, omitted the fries which subtracted $3 from each burger, and then ordered the moshpit fries.
Everything was terrific- excellent serving size.
We also ordered bloody mary's.

We'll be back for sure!

Pros: all vegan, friendly staff, great menu

Cons: none

You just have to try!

I’ve loved Francis since they’ve been a food truck but just went to the new restaurant last night and it did not disappoint! I’m more of a chicken sandwhich gal vs. burger but we tried the juicy Lucy and the chicken & bacon sandwhich and wowwwww both were so great. Very filling. We also had cocktails which you can’t really find a full vegan restaurant in Minneapolis with cocktails. Definitely go try them out you won’t be disappointed! ❤️
