“a.k.a. Friscos stands alone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

I havent been to a.k.a. Friscos in quite some time and coming back is soooo well worth it. I ordered the 'west of santa fe' salad .... its hands down the best salad ever. I also ordered the 'exploded potatoes' which are the most amazing potatoes ever. I couldnt finish it all and was more than happy to take it home for dinner. Plenty of parking and easy to get to. One of my favorite places.

“The Jewel of the Business Park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Despite the setting and draw-backs of being located in a business park and less-than-savory warehouse style dining room, Friscos prepares excellent food- hot, spicy, and large portions. Recommendations: Santa Fe anything!

“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.
