Owners Teddy and Cynthia Spears build their menu of made-to-order American favorites with family recipes passed down from Cynthia’s father. The Frisco burger stacks bacon and swiss cheese atop grilled sourdough bread before pouring on homemade thousand-island dressing ($6.35), and a sun-dried tomato tortilla wraps its sunburned layer around grilled chicken, black beans, and chipotle sauce to form the chipotle chicken wrap ($6.99). During dinnertime, plates accessorize their skirt steak with a wrap of french bread and a jeweled necklace of grilled onions ($10.99), and hands create avant garde napkin art with the savory sauce from barbecue ribs ($10.99 for a half slab; $17.99 for a whole). An array of kids’ meals wins over the 12-and-younger demographic with entrees such as chicken strips flanked by small fries and a drink ($3.99).
Rustic brick walls and muted reds ensconce diners seated at wooden tables and booths. Paintings of plump chefs glance from their frames, ready to pounce on any unfinished meals, and sports games stream from a flat-screen TV perched above an inviting stone fireplace.
Ever since they met back in 2004, Cynthia and Teddy Spears shared aspirations of opening a restaurant. Having achieved that dream, Teddy now relies on his passion for cooking while Cynthia falls back on her background in the restaurant industry to offer diners comfort foods from a menu packed with family dishes passed down from her father. Those dishes include creative touches such as homemade fried pickles served with apricot-chipotle sauce. In their restaurant's dining room a fireplace roars and stone pillars hold up the high ceiling while diners sink teeth into big, 100% pure-beef charbroiled burgers and steamed or grilled hot dogs. Up to 120 visitors can fill the space for private parties, while family and friends can pop in any time to watch sporting events on flat-screen TVs.
