We love this place. Everything is out of this world. One bite of the exploding potatoes and you'll devour the rest and go back for more!

The food here is great, the staff is friendly and courteous, and the beer selection is fantastic. We had the flat iron steak over potato and the flat iron steak over exploded potatoes, which is a combination of bacon and mashed potatoes and cheese (I think).

So, we were on our way to Frederick and I looked online to find a place to eat. Saw this and decided to give it a try! So glad I did! The portions are awesome and my husband and I got two sandwiches and two drinks for less than $25! We definitely could have shared one sandwich though, it was... More

On a quiet Sunday afternoon we met friends for lunch. A nice place hidden away among the warehouses and commercial buildings. Nice and quiet? Empty? NO WAY! The place was hopping with every table full - and everyone looking like they were loving the food! Standing at the order counter we were asked if this was our first visit. Upon... More

We tracked this place down because of the reviews of "Exploded Potatoes". It really is in the most unlikely place and so worth finding. The exploded potatoes are really something special and our two entrees were so very good, the southwest chicken and the steak. The portion sizes are beyond enormous so you could split an entree and still have... More

Located in a business park, aka Friscos is hidden from the main road. But the fact that it was crowded on a Saturday, when most of the other businesses in the park were closed, is a testament to the fact that they must really be onto something. A lot of the menu centers around the potato. You can get it... More

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
