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

Huge, fantastic, creative sandwiches. AMAZING loaded mashed potatoes (called "exploded potatoes"). Friendly service, wide drink selection, and overall great place to eat.

Had lunch here today for the first time after seeing the reviews on Trip Advisor...so very glad we did. We split the Santa Fe loaded potato and we still had a small amount of food left over, although I would venture to say a lot of people could eat a whole one. We eyed some of the other food coming...

We love Friscos. Have been going there for years. It's not your normal restaurant and that's what we love about them. Any type of baked potato you can imagine, great sandwiches and everything made to order. They do have different hours, but other than that, they are great.

It's a little hard to find because it's in a light industrial area with a lot of buildings. I've known about it for years but never been there for a meal. Get the twice baked potatoes. You could make a meal just from them. I also got a bowl of soup. It was the special of the day. Some sort... More

Finally tried Friscos, en route to the Flying Dog brewery (across the street). Clever use of old warehouse space; neat setup although I didn't quite feel at the beach or in San Francisco. Delicious meaty sandwich with plenty of cripsy fresh sprouts and very tasty smashed potatoes. They also have a nice sampling of beers, including Flying Dog offerings. Worth... More

To start off, you HAVE to order the potatoes. Do not order them to go, as they aren't as good when they're cold (But I would still go to town if they were cold). Sit down, and enjoy every bite of these bad boys. I've tried to duplicate them at home, didn't work. What they do? I have no clue,... More
