Fric-n-Frac is one of those places that you go for exceptional bar food. The quesadillas, sandwiches, and the burgers are wonderful. The place is super-friendly and in a great location.

You have to try the Italian Fries, baked potato sliced deep fried with grated cheese... Yummy! Breaded Zucchini is great as well. Loved my burger, and my wife loved her veggie pita. Tiny tables... big flavor!

The burgers are really good and there's a lot of different choices for sandwiches. We are partial to the mushroom burger, but my favorite thing at Fric and Fracs is the fries. They're all thin and curly and amazing! They have a veggie menu too if you don't eat meat.

A basket of three tacos for under $3 can't be beat. The ground beef was a little spicy if that is what you are looking for. The service was good, but a little slow.

This is the first time we came here. We were out late & wanted to get something to eat. The server came by quickly to give us menus & take our drink order. Since it was late we took advantage of their 1/2 price appetizer. I had a chicken sandwich which ws just ok. My wife had a burger &... More

It has average food. I heard it used to better, but I like it anyway. It is a cool place on a cool corner in the city. I love walking by and seeing the hipsters eating on the outside tables. It is friendly. A good place to go for the experience.

Spent a pleasant afternoon with my family in Fric & Frac's back room, eating nachos and tacos that reminded us of our Sunday family lunches while growing up. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere fun and the food great! As crowded as they were, we were never pressured to clear out to open the table to another group. This is... More

one of the first places my college hippy girlfriend brought me was to Fric & Frac back in 1994 and it really hasn't changed AT ALL in all of that time, except maybe the giant TV in the dining room, but aside from that, great food, great service, not too expensive, drinks and drinks, it's really just a comfortable spot...
