We have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The only negative, if you want to call it that, is the size of their menu. It may take you quite a while to choose form all the wonderful offerings. The exploding potatoes are awesome. We order these by the pound to take home for diner events... More

This place is known for their large, delicious sandwiches. My personal favorites are the Alcatraz (turkey and avocado) and the San Bruno (curry chicken salad). They also have great salads and I hear the chili is good too. This is a great place to stop for lunch if you're in the area, or to get a good meal after touring... More

On a recent trip to Frederick for a Saturday conference we took our host out for dinner. She got to pick the place ... and we were the winners. It's located, so far as I can tell, in an business park of some sort. We drove in after dark and there was precious little traffic. You have to go looking... More

Highly recommend lunch at Friscos. Huge sandwiches, soups, and the famous exploded potatoes. Come for the potatoes, if for nothing else. Stop off next door to find a unique wine selection which they sell at a dollar above cost on Fridays.

Very good sandwiches and Loaded Potatoes. This place had good take out food bit not really a place to go and dine in. They do have some tables, but the cater more to the take out crowd. The food is very good and would recommend to anyone looking for a good deli.

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!
