Franklin's Bistro in Norfolk, NE
Franklin's Neighborhood Bistro-Norfolk, NE The Franklin's, Donna and Al, were in the restaurant business for 12 years, took a break for 4 years and came back and opened their own place in 2012. The whole town knows Donna and Al for their food and hospitality. Sadly, Al passed in October of 2013. His family was devastated as was his clientele. The town really came together for his funeral and supported Donna and their 3 kids, Katie, Dustin, and me, Sam! The menu is full of favorites all thought of by Al and his family. Franklin's is mostly known for their beef tips, but other favorites include avocado egg rolls, Al's spinach dip, hand cut steaks, and much more. Everything was hand crafted, including the drinks, by Al himself with the help of his family and great employees. Franklin's atmosphere is homey, and full of Al's spunk and spirit. He is so greatly missed but he truly lives on through his food and his guest's memories of him. Donna really deserves some recognition for keeping Franklin's going after Al's passing. She is a champ, and her business is killer!
