Frisco, how do I love thee, let me count the ways...beer...beer...beer...beer....
Beer: phenomenal selection, very eclectic and ever-changing. 50 rotating taps, including two cask selections and (usually) a nitro beer somewhere in the mix. No Bud on tap. Ever. And, I am but four beers away from joining the Century Club...score!
Food: Pub grub designed and cooked by a chef...very tasty, very diverse...from Fajitas to Pad Thai to (my favorite) a most awesome pastrami sandwich. The homemade corn dogs (kielbasa in pale ale batter!) are to die for. The only weak links in the menu I've found are the burgers. I can't quite put my finger on it, but they're just not right...seem a little dry, a little bland...but there are so many other great options on the menu that I'm never disappointed.
Bartenders and waitstaff. Emily and Mike are our "go-to" folks on this front. Awesome folks, the both of them! They know their beers like no other beer servers I've met and they're both nice enough to recognize us and say "hi" when we come in...kinda like "Cheers." One drawback to Frisco, though: the service at the tables is seriously challenged. I'm not sure if that's where they assign the beginners and you move closer to the bar the better you get (eventually ending up behind it!), but we make it a point to sit at the bar or the long fest-table. We've actually decided, based on past experiences, to stand and hover near the bar if faced with sitting at one of the tables as the only option.
BTW, this is not a place to bring your kids...they'll just annoy those of us trying to enjoy good beer and conversation. Leave them at home. Thank you.
So, Frisco gets four stars...reduced from a five due to the table-staff...and the fact that the name is "Frisco," which no self-respecting native San Franciscan could ever approve of.
