This is a wonderful local restaurant! I had a baby spinach salad, with grilled chicken and an herb dressing. I was on of the best salads that I have ever had. The building is the old train depot and the people are very friendly. I look forward to going back there.

Down home diner style where all the locals migrate to. Breakfast & Lunch is just like grandma would serve. Limited dinner hours but Friday can be usually made. Burgers, chicken fried steak or chicken, pot roast; they do it all very-very well. Breakfast is just as good!

Since we moved to Frisco a few months ago, we've wanted to try the Depot Cafe. It seems to always get rave reviews. We decided this was the day. Following church Sunday morning, we ventured over to the cafe. We had a bit of a wait to order and get a table. You order before being seating. Both of us... More

We have eaten there, mainly on Sunday lunch time. If eating with other than couples, the food may be delivered at different times. Very noisy if the restaurant is busy. Seems to liked by many locals for its home cooking but they don't do a very good job of that.

The Pot Roast on the special with two sides and a huge slice of cake is really good! Very friendly service. The decor inside is cute and not what you would expect when it's attached to a gas station.

Their website says it "...captures the essence of old-time Frisco with today's favorite comfort food." Well, the decor is cute but the food is awful. If their idea of "comfort food" is to open cans, then count me out. We each had the grilled pork chop plate with sides. The pork chop was so thin it almost had only one... More

The Depot has been a landmark of old Frisco for a long time. The facility is well maintained and reflects the rich history of Frisco railroad history. We stopped by for lunch and had fried pork chops, green beans, blacked eyed peas, corn and fried okra. The pork chops were okay but the vegetables were probably right out of the... More

This is inside a building that is a gas station (the gas station part is connected on the north end). I was a bit skeptical when my friend said they had good food, but I love to try new places so off on an adventure we went! And breakfast was fantastic. I had the Depot Breakfast which allows you to... More
