The food at Francois Café and Grill is so good! The beef in the Beef Tenderloin Kabob is so tender, you don't need a knife to cut it, you can use your fork. The Beef tips and mushrooms are to delicious! I recommend this restaurant although, you need to order before 7pm because that's when they close.

My husband and I dined there recently. It's a restaurant close to our home and a good choice for tasty food that is fresh. However, the ambience suffers because the chef who is also the owner refuses to make any adjustments to his food to suit the diner. We asked for a sauce to be left off of a piece... More

My husband and I love to eat here. He likes the omelets and I love the french dip sandwich! The staff is always very friendly and the service is amazing! This is a great place to eat. I really like the pasta salad, which is a side that you can get with your meal.

I recommend eating here. The food is good and the place comfy. The only drawback is that there really is no set closing time.....whenever the owner/chef is done, he's done.

The food here is well prepared and so fresh. I truly enjoyed every bite of my meal. The wait staff was friendly and very attentive. I highly recommend eating here. Don't forget to save room for the decedent deserts.

I had not been here in several months and returned for lunch. As I remembered the food and service was excellent. It's a more relaxed atmosphere without the loud flashing TVs in every corner. Always a treat.

I have eaten numerous times at Francois. They have the best grilled vegetables and potatoes that you can ever seen. The food is always perfect each time that I eat there. We were there for an office Christmas party. I even brought my hubby something home. Great place to eat.

I have been here many times and I am never disappointed. The food is always good as is the service. It's somewhat small and is casual. They usually have some specials which are always good. The portion sizes are ample. It's one of the better food options in Zachary.

Never disappointed when I eat at this establishment. The food is delicious, service is efficient. Your meal is delivered to your table within minutes of ordering and is piping hot. The bread sticks - YUUUM! I highly recommend this eatery!
