Last week, my wife and I were running errands, and decided to stop by Frisch's and pick up lunch on the way home. Pleasantly surprised to find that the servings were larger and better packaged than in the past. The onion rings were not greasy and overcooked...everything was better prepared and presented in the new packaging. will revisit more often...until... More

Stopped with friends to eat. Good food. Salad bar was clean and fresh ingredients. Soup was delicious! Food came hot and correctly.

Frisch's Big Boy has been in my hometown since before I was born. I always eat there when I'm in the area. The first thing I noticed was that there were food particles on my seat. Apparently the table had been wiped off onto the seat. My other disappointment was that the salad bar was out of several items. I... More

We didn't call ahead to let them know we'd be dining with them. The manager indicated that is was fine. The server did a good job getting the orders correct for our group of 26. I think only one or two we not correct the first time. The restaurant did correct, but it seemed as if they just took the... More

We witnessed workers smoking outside by drive thru window the window to get food is disgusting...have tried it twice and both times became sick after eating...it's a very dirty place you can pull in driveway and look around and just know.... I knew not to go again but work nearby and went again ... Seriously tastes like food is made... More

We frequently drive through the Franklin Frisch's, and have found the food quality to be very hit and miss. The fries are often soggy or refried, and sandwiches are sometimes cold. On the most recent trip, my mom's Buddy Boy looked noticeably smaller than normal. I tried the mushroom and Swiss burger, which was surprisingly good! It had a nice... More

Yuck is all I can say! We ate there thinking we have never been here before and it was totally not worth stopping...the food was small portions and just yuck! All the way around yuck...over $20 for nothing....Will not return...the value for what you get is terrible. and the food wasn't good either...

I went there recently and the management turned a little issue (question about a price) into a situation where I was basically called a liar. The food IS good but they need some classes in how to deal with people. I work with the public as well and I don't like to write negative reviews but the more I thought... More
