Frisco feasting

Frisco open again at lastWe took the last two available seats at the counter. It was 11:05 am and the Frisco was jumping. The menu has all my favorites on it, so I didn’t note any changes, or at least not any that matter to me. There’s a big open window into the much more spacious cooking quarters, so those sitting at the counter and in the same room have plenty to entertain them.

Among today’s vegetables were Brussels sprouts, pinto beans, black-eyed peas, and more. I was too late for biscuits. There were beautiful pies in the case. My Chop’t was as good as ever and seemed to be a great favorite of the other rejoicing patrons as well.

The parking lot was full and people reported parking up and down the street and even across it. There was much table-hopping and shaking of hands. The local daily sent a reporter and photographer to the Frisco yesterday and has posted a couple of evocative Ralph Barrera photographs, along with a clear map showing the new location. I’ll be there at the Frisco for breakfast very soon, I hope, and early enough to enjoy those heavenly biscuits.

Frisco fans, rejoice!

Frisco signThe hawk flies again, the sign proclaims. I toured the interior of the new Frisco location this afternoon. Three different people on the site confirmed that all are laboring mightily to open on Monday.

There were no copies of a menu lying around anywhere. There’s beautiful gilded hand-painted signage on the doors, and one says that the Frisco will be open every day from 7 am until 10 pm. Check it out at the former north Curra’s, 6801 Burnet, just a short distance from the original Frisco location.

If there’s any justice in this world, the Frisco will be there serving up the eponymous Frisco, the famous Top Chop’t, the pies that some people just buy in their entirety to take home for household enjoyment, and the biscuits beyond compare; and Monday will be the day. I’m counting the hours. I have felt so sad to see the demolition of the old Frisco home, but the sign’s been saved (and repainted) and, if Monday’s not the day, the day will be upon us very, very soon.
