“OMG, Exploded Potatoes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We ate here with a group of girlfriends and what a treat. You can order to go or sit in the spacious dinnig area. Either way, try the exploded potatoes. They also have fresh, overstuffed sandwiches and hot selections. I had a cold italian sub that day. They also have a wide selection of soft drinks. This place is nestled in an office park between New Design Road and Buckeystown Pike off of Route 270. Well worth finding the next time you're hungry!

“Love this place! Good food and they have a decent wine and beer selection.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Visited A.K.A Friscos this Sunday before going to the Fredrick Keys Game. I ordered the Bart and my husband order the BBQ beef sandwich both were really good. The food at A.K.A Friscos reminds of type of food you would find in San Francisco,ca.

“Decent food, way off the beaten path”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We chose this restaurant because it was listed #1 in Frederick so we had high expectations. The quality of food was good, but this place is very casual and in a warehouse district about 5 miles south of historic Frederick. We should have looked on a map. I can see why it would be popular to locals working nearby. Not sure why a sandwich shop is the #1 restaurant is the best restaurant in Frederick, though.

“Best Potatos Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We traveled to Frederick from Toronto, Ontario. After reading the reviews of TA, and hearing how good the potatos are, we had to make a stop at Frisco's. The location of the restaurant is quite unusual, but it's worth going out of the way for. We had a steak salad, black bean nacho, a sandwich and plenty of exploded potatos. Everything was above average, and the potatos were on a completely different level. I would compare them to the excellence of authentic Chicago deep dish, or New Jersey Bagels. I'll never be able to eat potatos without remembering this place.

“Great food, awesome service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to give us free samples. When we told them that we were from out of town, they were surprised and were very hospitable. The owner came over to our table and talked to us about our food and overall experience. He then gave us free cookies for the road. However, I don't guarantee that you will receive free cookies.
