We didn't know what to expect when we walked in. The menu is huge and you have to read everything in order to figure out what you want. I ate their Cheffy salad and my husband had their Sunnyvale lunch special. OMG it was all tasty! The greens were fresh. The potato side was delicious! Their salsa is amazing. The... More

The food was as not as great as I expected... I'm just not as impressed as many others. I felt the sandwich was difficult to eat since it was so tall. I'd like a smaller option. The food was good, but I felt the employees were more interested in joking around with each other... it was hard to have a... More

I cannot say enough about the variety and great taste that AKA Friscos prepares. A weekly visit makes me look forward to the next visit...don't make them more often, but every Friday they come through for my wife and I. Friday brings about a special treat all it's own, as Frisco's has great food, and a connected wine shop where... More

Good prices- good food- and tons of food for your money! We've been here several times and whether you get take out or eat in it's great. I'd recommend the salads, sandwiches and the exploded potatoes are a must!!

Any meal at AKA Frisco's must include exploded potatoes. This mashed, baked mixture is rich and filled with bacon and scallions. Order some to go and keep them in mind when you have an event at home, a tray is super easy to heat at home and will impress guests. The steak salad is delicious. Romaine lettuce, perfectly cut steak... More

Not the fancy place you might think, but a real creative sandwich shop. Great and innovative soup selections and the best loaded potato's. Many beer selections and food tasting upon arrival.
