My friend found this best kept secret while he was working in Frederick, and it's been our favorite sandwich place (among various other things) ever since! The place is always nice and clean, and the food is always consistent and absolutely delicious.

I ordered the embarcadero sandwich, it is a cold sandwich with roast beef. I only got half the sandwich to leave room for their always delicious soup and 'explode potato'. The explode potato consist of warm potatoes, bacon bits, and various other stuffing. Super super yummy. The explode potato is a must try item!

The soup I picked today was white bean chicken chili soup. Actually jalapeno chili was my original choice but 2 of my friends ordered the chicken chili and it looked absolutely irresistible. So I changed my order and definitely didn't regret the choice!

Hubby ordered the BBQ beef and potato sandwich. It's basically thick cut roast beef smothered with BBQ sauce, then comes with a side of explode potato as well. This was delicious and the portion was huge.

The best part of dining at Friscos is their ice cream parlor is ALWAYS open year round. I love their soft serve ice cream, it's one of the best in the area if you ask me. I get the 'kiddie' cone just because by the time the meal was done, I am always stuffed (never fails). I have to recommend the swirl chocolate dipped, but make sure you finish it quickly or it will get real messy soon! It's also real cheap priced at under $2 for the kiddie size.

All in all, aka Friscos is our favorite sandwich place. Lombard and Alcatraz are also two of my favorite sandwiches, make sure you try these when you go!
