I live and work within a mile of Frisco's and this is my most frequented restaurant in Frederick. Located off the main drag, Frisco's generally serves the local businesses and industry on the south side of Frederick. This is not a candlelight date place by any means; in fact M-TH they close at 7pm. But come at lunchtime any day, or on the weekends and you will find this place is hopping.
The food - great sandwiches, great salads, and great specialty items. Most people think a sandwich is a sandwich, but Frisco's finds unique ways to spice them up - and when I say spice, i really mean spice. When you go to the register to pay, notice the huge plastic containers of cumin, pepper, garlic, paprika, etc. If you want a sandwich, try the Oakland - nice thick turkey breast lunchmeat, smoked gouda, pesto and spices. Don't like turkey, go for an Embarcadero (roast beef and horseradish) or North Beach (chicken salad). They have about 20 sandwiches to choose from, you won't have a problem there. Want a salad? They have THE BEST grilled chicken caesar salad I've ever tasted and if you're looking for something different, try the Curry Frisco's salad - curry flavored chicken salad on a cold, crisp bed of romaine, tri-colore pasta, and vegetables. Don't want a soup or salad? Create your own baked potato with unlimited topping options or get some grilled wings, or a Skinny Green Pizza, or the soup of the day.
As far as service, its adequate. This is a grab and go place so don't expect to get pampered like you're at the Ritz. But then again, I've never had a bad experience with the staff. By now, they know me by name!
And even if you've already had lunch, Frisco's can still serve you. They have a great little ice cream shop attached to the main building, and also a great liquor store with local, regional, and international wines, beers and spirits. As another reviewer mentioned, wine tasting and major wine sales happen every Friday night. You also get big discounts if you buy by the case.
I seriously cannot get enough of this place. I have no vested interest in the business, but I really wish more people knew about Frisco's!
