My wife and son love this place but I'm not a fan. Today I tried their trans-am aka blt sandwich and asked for it on a grilled sub roll. Unfortunately it came not grilled and the content piled in a way that you couldn't hold...More

We found aka Frisco’s while on a visit. It’s healed into a commercial/industrial park, but what a nice find! Great sandwiches, salads, store, etc. Really enjoyed it - and the outside seating looked like a nice lace to hang out.

We were going to tour the Flying Dog Brewery and wanted to stop for a quick lunch beforehand. We found AKA Friscos because it was just down the street. It is very casual, busy and more like a local place. They have good sandwiches and...More
