The service and food is always good. We always make sure to stop through to this location when we are in town. The food always comes fast and is always hot.

While it's been a while since I've been to this particular Frisch:s I still have fond memories of it.. The food is basic & normally, the service is friendly. Wish we had them here in Colorado.

It was very busy, but I still got a table pretty fast. The service was good. The soup and salad bar was good. Their were several selections to choose from at the salad bar along with 2 different soups.

I love the burgers at Frisch's, the big boy is awesome.... The food is cheaply priced, but good. Nice selection for all family members. Great deserts.

I love that Frisch's has alternatives for those of us who dont eat red meat. The turkey burgers are outstanding and paired with their sweet potato fries - ummmm just awesome!
