We chose this restaurant because it was listed #1 in Frederick so we had high expectations. The quality of food was good, but this place is very casual and in a warehouse district about 5 miles south of historic Frederick. We should have looked on a map. I can see why it would be popular to locals working nearby. Not sure why a sandwich shop is the #1 restaurant is the best restaurant in Frederick, though.

We traveled to Frederick from Toronto, Ontario. After reading the reviews of TA, and hearing how good the potatos are, we had to make a stop at Frisco's. The location of the restaurant is quite unusual, but it's worth going out of the way for. We had a steak salad, black bean nacho, a sandwich and plenty of exploded potatos. Everything was above average, and the potatos were on a completely different level. I would compare them to the excellence of authentic Chicago deep dish, or New Jersey Bagels. I'll never be able to eat potatos without remembering this place.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to give us free samples. When we told them that we were from out of town, they were surprised and were very hospitable. The owner came over to our table and talked to us about our food and overall experience. He then gave us free cookies for the road. However, I don't guarantee that you will receive free cookies.

This restaurant is a little out of the way...not far from Harry Grove Stadium, though. Menu is quite diversified--you can find salads, sandwiches, and great appetizers. We weren't too hungry so I opted for the Skinny Green Pizza, which is pesto and spinach and tomatoes, on very thin crust, lots of tasty spices, and about 10 inches around...you will find it on the appetizer menu. It was DEE-licious. Also did a sampling of the 99 cent exploded potatoes, which was a heaping cupful of baked potato with scallions, ham bits, really good. Vanilla creme soda was a throw back to the old days. Restaurant was busy on a Saturday afternoon, but plenty of tables, and a friendly staff to help you order, and deliver your meal quickly. Loved this place!

Huge portions- we usually get 3 sandwiches for 4 of us & share, & still have leftovers. Wine shop attached is an added plus. Live the exploding potatoes!
