This neighborhood café opened just four months after its successful predecessor, Big Fran’s Boardwalk Gaming in Johnsburg. Similar to the Johnsburg Location, Big Fran’s in McHenry is quite spacious but maintains its cozy atmosphere. The earth-toned walls, subtle décor, and dim lighting have a calming effect within the exclusive Atlantic City theme.
Five video slot machines are thoughtfully positioned throughout the room, offering every gamer a sense of privacy while maintaining direct access to an attendant. Each terminal is accompanied by a small table, where guests can place their drinks, purses, coats, or any other personal items. They also can help themselves to snacks, usually nuts and cookies, located on the round table at the center of the room. Guests can make themselves comfortable in this area as well, where they can wait for a machine to open up, wait for a friend, or simply enjoy a glass of wine.
Big Fran’s Boardwalk Gaming in McHenry is another location through which Fritz has honored his mother, Fran. Fran once owned Town Club in McHenry, another one of Awesome Hand Gaming’s locations, where she spent much of her free time kicking back and spinning slots after a long day. Fran certainly would be proud of the carefully-styled, esthetically pleasing, and relaxing environment of Big Fran’s Boardwalk Gaming.
