We stopped on the way home and this was a great find. The menu is huge and a little confusing, but the staff helped us figure it out. They gave free samples of the exploded potatoes, and they were awesome. Try the Lombardo and especially the barbecue sandwich with exploded potatoes. It's not fancy but the food is great.

Went here with co-workers and had an excellent, very big beef sandwich, and expoloded potato. Good prices and plenty of sandwiches to choose from, will definitely go back again on our next trip to Frederick.

We ate here with a group of girlfriends and what a treat. You can order to go or sit in the spacious dinnig area. Either way, try the exploded potatoes. They also have fresh, overstuffed sandwiches and hot selections. I had a cold italian sub that day. They also have a wide selection of soft drinks. This place is nestled in an office park between New Design Road and Buckeystown Pike off of Route 270. Well worth finding the next time you're hungry!

Visited A.K.A Friscos this Sunday before going to the Fredrick Keys Game. I ordered the Bart and my husband order the BBQ beef sandwich both were really good. The food at A.K.A Friscos reminds of type of food you would find in San Francisco,ca.

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.
