I've been in Austin,TX for a while now, but though I've heard of Frisco, I haven't had occasion to eat there until last week . . . prompted by a coupon in the local mailer. The outside of the building looked unassuming, but inside it had a warm ambience - a large "lunch counter" type bar along one side, with... More

Hearty breakfasts and the chopped steaks at other times are still a classic. This is where long time Austin residents eat and it is easy to see why. Very friendly service and high quality food.

Well we bought a Travelzoo coupon thinking this was a totally different place. Since the coupon was expiring we decided to use it up. MUCH to our surprise we left Frisco's wondering when we could return. The coupon for four people included two shared appetizers, four entries AND four desserts. Our appetizers were a giant dish of queso and chips... More

This food could have been right off my grand parent's stove top. If you're looking for a home-cooked southern meal, this is the place. If you want fancy and hip this is probably not for you. We found the staff warm & welcoming and the service (from our waiter Steve) absolutely wonderful. My wife and I absolutely loved the food,... More

"This food could have been right off my grand parent's stove top." We're just not sure we could ask for a better compliment, Eric!

Wow, my husband and I do *not* get the 3.5 star average of this place. We had never been to Frisco, even though we've both lived in Austin for decades. So we decided to try it for dinner last night. He ordered the pork chop and I ordered the blackened tilapia, both of which were supposed to come with 2... More

Ok, I admit it. We have never been to the Frisco Shop before, even though it has been an Austin iconic restaurant for over 60 years! All I got to say is that it is a buttery, carb-filled goodness experience that everyone should try at least once. My husband and I went with our daughter and 4 yr old granddaughter.... More

The Frisco on Burnet Road is an Austin tradition. The food is good quality home cooking. The service is excellent and the desserts are wonderful. Always enjoy our meals there for special occasions.

OK... After reading some of the negative and "poor" reviews of The Frisco, I decided to chime in and share a much different experience. When I was a teenager, The Frisco was an established name in dining in Austin. But, I never ventured in for a try. And, considering I grew up in NYC for the first part of my... More

Two of the best over-easy eggs you've ever had? Wow, Bodie! We're thrilled to hear it! We're sorry to hear about the crunchy biscuits, though!

The Frisco has been in Austin a number of years, and I have visited it on several occasions. On my most recent visit I had breakfast and, as usual, it was good. The service was friendly and efficient.
