Customers & Friends
“When planning a wake for my Mom's friends and family here in San Diego, I immediately thought of my friend chef Flor Franco and her light, spacious and comfortable new entertainment space, Franco on Fifth. Having known Flor for several years, the food was a no-brainer. There was never a doubt that she would hit it out of the park. Mom had simple tastes, and one of her favorites was a Bob's Big Boy burger. Flor and her team took that cue and ran, creating a delicious gourmet burger made with high-quality ingredients on heavenly buns with garden fresh vegetables and a series of creatively blended condiments. And it was all served with a side of truffle fries with a cold and delicious butterscotch milkshake - another of Mom's favorites - for dessert. I would HIGHLY recommend Franco on Fifth for any occasion. Their experience, high level of quality, care and attention to detail cannot be beat.
“We had the pleasure of working with this amazing crew of culinary professionals for one of our nonprofit events. They prepared a beautiful space and stepped up to ensure that all of our guests had the best experience possible. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful venue and their wonderful event team for an event.”
“This space is arty and fun; I've attended 3 dinners here and each time the vibe is great and the food spectacular. Highly recommend.”
