The Frisch's restaurant on Central Parkway is the most challenging of all restaurants, inside and out. Most especially, the drive-thru. I was aghast but the halitosis of the young lady respresenting the restaurant at the drive up window. It was lunch time. The girl with the rotten teeth asked me to pull up as they were waiting on my fries.... More

They fed me quickly. They didn't rip me off. The food went down well. It stayed down. It passed through in good time. What more does one need?

I love the #1 breakfast--anytime of day. Their bread is made on premise and the white toast is--well, what can you say about white toast but it is exceptional. Try the fresh, never frozen hamburgers and the handmade milk shakes.

I live in Florida and i still have not had a best fish sandwich then the Frisch's Big Boy in Ohio. The bun--soft, but not too soft. The lettuce--finely shredded. The fish-- lightly breaded to hold in the juices. The Tatar sauce-- this is really the key, Frisch's makes their own Tatar sauce and its perfection. I even eat it... More

I haven't had a Big Boy in decades, so we decided to stop on our way home. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff was fast, helpful and friendly. We ordered the big boy platter. It was just as I remember it and very good. The onion rings were a little sweet but good. We would definitely stop by... More

Good little restaurant. We got into Cincinnati late and didn't have many options. We checked out Frisch's and we weren't disappointed. Basically diner food and burgers but tasty and a good value. Try the pork tenderloin sandwich.

The hamburgers are pretty good. Not much variety on the menu. I had the salad bar. It wasn't that good. Not much variety. The tartar sauce is their specialty and it is very good.

I've always liked going to Frisch's. But, the food is just really average. Its mostly a family, tradition thing so that's why we keep going. My kids love it. However, about 30 minutes after eating... we ALL have to make a mad dash for the bathroom. I don't know what is in their cooking grease??

We only had dessert so we can't give an honest review of the food. However the pies were a big let down. Pecan pie was somewhat better than the coconut cream. The cc pie was all fluff, no real coconut or meringue. The waitress was very nice and made the experience pleasant, but after all we did go there to... More
