I live just around the corner from Frisco's and am sad to see they are now closed . Their Facebook page says its permanent. Too bad.....they had good food. I went for breakfast in July and it was reasonable with huge portions .

Our neighbourhood bar got a much-needed facelift this past year and new management. New washrooms are really quite the improvement over the old fixtures. The wings are still good, although our last visit presented a new cajun spice that wasn't the usual (which was disappointing). Wing size can vary, too.

Very much like their wings. The restaurant decor and furnishings are in desperate need of refurbishing. Seems dingy.

It's your typical neighbourhood roadhouse, they have been in business for many years. There food has always been good. The wait time for food is way too long, we ordered burgers and fries, it took 40 mins to get them. The burger was good, even though the bun was falling apart. The waitress was very nice and attentive. The only... More
