“Food is good, just not great.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Used to eat lunch at the first Fricker's a lot, until it tragically burned down. Stopped here at Vandalia a couple of times and it just doesn't have the ambiance, nor does the food seem as good. Just typical bar food...

“Wings were Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Been here many times, first time I have written a review on them. Always greeted very well at the door. Service is usually very good. Sometimes have to wait for a beverage refill, but that is mostly due to them being busy. My wife had the quesadilla and I had wings. Her quesadilla had a lot more chicken on it than expected and was very good. I had the wings spun in the killer sauce and had them cooked well done (I do that for two reasons #1-to make sure they are cooked thru and #2-because I like them crispy). Add a side of bleu cheese (best bleu cheese around), and they were just awesome! I am sure we will be heading back.

“Great place to hang out!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

This frickers is one of the smaller ones but that gives it a homey feeling. Food is good. Service is great and friendly.
Suggestion: if u like your chicken chunks covered in sauce you may want to get it on the side or ask for them to be rolled in the sauce as they usually don't come with much. Fried pickles Are some of the best around!! Love pretzel bites and their ribs are pretty good too. I like this place better than the one on miller lane in Dayton (the newer one closest to here)

“Fun place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2010

This is a simple bar food/wings type place. It has a game room and was family friendly. Good beer prices. Food was nothing special but was ok.
