I had a sandwich, my daughter had a potato dish. Both average. It has a fun atmosphere; but, I don't like being asked for a tip, especially when I do everything except prepare the meal! ( got my own drink, picked up my dinner, seated myself, got my own utensils after a brief search, and cleaned up my table)

I've been going to Frisco's now for almost 20 years and never had a bad meal. Great sandwiches, salads and chili. It does get crowded at lunch time though.

I have eaten lunch at Frisco's twice. The food is fantastic. The portions are huge and the flavors are too. The exploded baked potato is just an awesome choice. It hits all the right notes with bacon, chives and butter. The salads are fresh and large. Sandwiches are large, fresh and amazing. Enough for lunch and dinner. A plus for... More

Loud, Rushed, Crowded, uncomfortable setting, As for the food well large portions of unremarkable food. Kind of resembled a human feed lot.

I love the food Friscos. I've been visiting since I moved to Frederick from DC 10 years ago. Honestly, I even remember the DC friscos from my high school and college days in Tenleytown. I've always had a great customer service experience and enjoyed the food. I had to get my kid a quick bite to eat so I dropped... More

08/31/2016 I just wanted to thank you for all of your years of business. I am really not sure what happened that day, but I am really sorry, and I believe it was a fluke. I am really hoping that your next experience will be what made you come back to begin with. More

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

Hello Razzek! Thanks for your feedback, and your business! I know our menu is overwhelming, but we have grown from 8 items to 58 items. Some of our newest items are the Spinach and Quinoa Salad, Baked Bay Wings, and The Sunnyvale Sandwich. Have you sampled the Skinny Green Pizza, BBQ, or Russian Hill? I hope you give the menu...
