favorite standby

This is the place we go to when we want to go a comfortable standby. Good burgers. Good sandwiches. Good salads. There is always a good special. I have never been disappointed here. Plus the bartender makes a wicked Mojito.

No Frill is often very busy and requires a wait to be seated but it is worth it. The staff is usually very efficient and responsive despite the business. The food portions are quite large and taste very good. I think of No Frill as a better take on diner food. Make sure to try the meatloaf, Norfolk hot brown... More

GREAT SERVICE!!! is the start of an enjoyable dining experience. No Frill has top notch servers and an ever evolving menu. The beer and wine list provides bountiful and interesting libation choices. There are lots of wonderful menu items and the food is well-prepared, hot and delicious. Others mention the noise, yes, perhaps a bit. We just returned from NYC.... More

Great place to chill and eat with friends. The menu had many options for kids and adults alike. I do not like franchise common choices so this place really hit the spot. Be careful, the portions are huge!

Food selections make it easy to find something to try. Love the tuna teriyaki pita with the curried rice. Many other delicious meals and reasonably priced. Parking in this area is difficult..on street or crowded and small lots behind the buildings. Well worth going in for lunch or dinner.
