Came here for lunch. Place was kind of hard to find but we managed with google maps. Got there early and there weren't many people so we were skeptical. Went in and ordered from the rather large menu...lots of options! Salads, sandwiches, big potatoes, etc. My wife and I both got potatoes. Food was really good! Potatoes were made fresh... More

I have been coming to the amazing place for years now. I have always loved all the items I have ordered and never have been disappointed. This is one of the few places I struggle to choose my order every time I go because everything is BANGIN! Speaking of bangin the exploded potato is a must for first timers and... More

Well hidden location with some really good lunch food! Well worth finding: exploded potatoes are #1 and sandwiches are enormous.

So I’m looking on Trip Advisor for local places I haven’t reviewed as yet and I hit on this one. A few days later ‘big brother’ from Trip Advisor emails me to ask ‘where is the review?’ This was disturbing as there are places where the reviews are not that good and I don’t wish to waste my money eating...

The location is tucked inside a business park off new design road. The salads, sandwiches and chili/soups have a very heavy hand of spices.. definitely over seasoned for my taste and would be potentially crippling if you're salicylate-sensitive. The flat iron steak salad has been my favorite along with the popular exploded potatoes. Occasionally I will stop in and get... More

Located in an industrial park off of route 15 in Frederick, MD, Frisco's is in a big concrete block structure. It looks quite unassuming when you enter, and you are presented with a very daunting menu above a cabana- like structure. I asked if it was kind of like a deli, where we ordered and sat, and this wonderful kid... More

aka Friscos is located in a industrial park area. Your patience will be rewarded if you keep going and find sandwich nirvana. The sandwiches are huge, the prices reasonable, the environment is fun and friendly but do not leave without trying their loaded baked potatoes. Calories and carbs yeah... but so worth it! You'll wonder how you've survived this long... More

Their exploded mashed potatoes are to die for. It comes as a side or an entire order. I got BBQ sandwich that comes with an exploded potatoes, and it is very good! Their sandwiches are huge. So glad I live nearby!

I'm from the West Coast and this place is as good as if it had been moved lock, stock, and barrel from the Bay Area to Frederick! The food is excellent, a real California taste with sprouts and avocado, my favorites, on some choices and whole lot of other options for everyone else. A wide selection of items with fresh... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat close to our hotel. Because of the great reviews we decided to try a.k. a. Friscos. When we entered we saw one the employees wearing an Amish hat, and we knew this was going to be a fun place. Great selection a unique sandwich combos which all sounded good. I had a roast... More
