“Finally Found You”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Odd location, but worth the few minutes spent to get there from I70 or 270. They used to have a small shop in Washington, D.C. Northwest off of Wisconsin Ave. It's been 8 years since my last bite, but unforgettable food.

“Superb Sandwiches and Salads in an Improbablle Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Delicious hand-crafted sandwiches, salads, exploded potatoes and similar casual fare. Very generous portions. Lively, welcoming, atmosphere. Is located, improbably, in a suburban industrial park, but don't let that deter you -- even on weekends, it is the "place to be." (Also a great place to pick up a picnic for Monocacy National Battlefield, nearby.)

“A relaxed place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here on our way back from DC as it was described as good place for families with kids. Environment is very relaxed. You order from menu at a counter and then find your own table and they bring food to you when ready. Service was quick. People friendly. Good variety of sandwiches, salads and loaded baked potatoes. Food was good and sandwiches were big and filling.

“Great potatoes and sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

quick service, excellent 'clean' food, and awesome exploded potatoes. My daughter and I enjoyed it. It was a little hard to find,buried in the industrial area but we hung in there and were glad we did.

“Finally a Real Sandwich in Maryland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

I found out about Frisco's as I was looking for a place for an ice cream cone. Well, found the cone but also a great sandwich. Each sandwich will need two hands to hold it while you eat it. The menu has great choices and as you can tell from the other reviews, exploded potatoes are a great choice. Their soups are really good too and always changing.
