Located in a business park along with Flying Dog Brewery, it seems out of place. However, Maryland has yet to become as friendly to breweries as some other states. Very unassuming exterior, but the food smelled fantastic upon entering. Quick service, good food, and dozens of beer options available (draft and bottle). Great place to hit up after taking a...

AKA Friscos is one of those places that you get consistently incredible flavors. The team there is creative, casual and 100% customer focused. Friscos caters to all people of all ages. Their ability to make an ordinary meal extra ordinary is second to none. The bonus that AKA Friscos adds is the wine and beer shop connected to the restaurant.... More

We stopped here for a bite while waiting for our tour to start at Flying Dog Brewery just down the street. It was already crowded when we arrived on a Saturday a little after Noon. We were confused about the ordering process and seating so I went to ask someone. The gentleman who helped us was quite helpful and explained... More

With extra time before our brewery tour at Flying Dog we headed over to Friscos to grab a quick bite. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and handed a sample of soup. The soup was excellent, but with little time we opted to split a Potrero Hill sandwich. So glad we split it! It was... More

Located on the south end of Frederick, this is a great place for sandwiches. I've been here many times and it is consistently very good. Prices are very much in line with the quality and quantity of what you get. The place is noisy, but the staff are friendly and it's pretty quick. Sure beats Subway or other chains!

It is a little pricier but the food is delicious! The exploded potatoes are a must try!!! The potatoes piled with toppings are also fantastic!! It is a cute little place to eat at but it does get crazy busy during lunchtime so call ahead and pick up your order then! That's what I did and I had my meal... More

Whether you get their slow roasted beef or juicy grilled chicken, I've never had anything that tastes bad from their menu. It's a fun run-in type of restaurant, with crafts type beer selections and homemade cookies. Try an exploded potato or the chronicle. yumyum We go once a month.

What a great surprise! Sandwiches, salads, loaded potatoes and soup but all with a twist. My three kids said I had to post this place on Trip Advisor because they all loved it, even my picky eater loved their grilled cheese. I loved the BBQ sandwich with smashed potatoes on the side. All food was very fresh and delicious. Very... More

Two words - Exploded Potatoes! Absolute nirvana and one of my favorite sides. Anywhere! Frisco's is tucked into an unassuming industrial park, but don't be fooled. The food is very fresh, the service is friendly, and the value is unmatched. They have huge sandwiches, great salads and soups. They also have daily specials and a smattering of hot items. My...

This was a great sandwich shop - very casual but awesome food. You go up to the counter order your sandwich, and they call you when it's done. I had a roast beef sandwich that was so huge that I took half of it home. The building is attached to a beer and wine store. (you can go in there... More
