Love, love, love a.k.a. Friscos!

Friscos is one of the places I miss most since I moved from Western Maryland. The food is SOOO good. My favorite is the steak seasoned just right and cooked on the grill, with exploded baked potato. It doesn't get ant better than that! They have a lot of yummy sandwiches and salads to choose from... read more

When I first went to a.k.a. Friscos, I thought it wasn't my kind of place. They had sandwiches, which I'm not usually into, and a few other random things that didn't seem like they were specialties. Then I tried the Exploded Potatoes. And they were incredible. But because people look at you weird if you just eat potatoes, I've perused... More

While visiting the area with my husband, he found a review of a.k.a. Friscos online. With a menu able to satisfy both of our palates, we gave it a try. Comfortable and casual, perfect dinner for a Friday night outing. The food was AMAZING...the exploded potatoes alone are one of the best comfort foods I have ever ordered out. Highly... More

In the area for business and one of the guys we were meeting with suggested Frisco's for lunch. Bring your appetite! The sandwiches are huge! I had the BBQ with Exploded Potatoes and it was great. My associate had the Trans Am which he also enjoyed. Located down the road from Flying Dog Brewery they have a great selection of... More

Received half of our order, the sub was decent, very messy, way too big. My husband then received his ham/potatoes. The ham was supposed to be chopped, instead it was smothered in mostly cheese and thinly sliced low quality ham. They forgot about our wings that we had ordered. When I did finally ask about our wings, staff checked and... More

We are always excited to try new, off the beaten track places and aka Frisco is certainly a wonderful find! In the past, the hubby and I loved loaded baked potatoes from a restaurant in Florida so we were excited while drooling over the menu online. Believe me, this satisfied every craving for them we've had since! Hubby had the... More

If I were rating this place solely based on food, I would give it 5 stars. I got the grilled chicken special and everything about the chicken was great. The dijon cilantro sauce was awesome too...I would love to make some of my own at home! My husband really liked his bbq sandwich as well. HOWEVER, I'm giving it 3... More

I've been here twice now. Once eating in and once for take out and both experiences were good. They have a large menu to choose from - mostly sandwiches and various types of baked potatoes. They also do appetizers and they're famous "exploded potatoes". The prices are reasonable and the portions are huge. They also offer a wide range of... More
