We have a wonderful selection of restaurants in Frisco, and they all have great food! If not, they are out of business fairly quickly.
My favorite Frisco restaurant is probably the Silverheels at the Orehouse. They have a tapas bar with great appetizers and sushi, and a restaurant with a variety of food, mostly with a southwestern flavor. I usually order the salmon, but they have other fish, steak, lamb and vegetarian dishes too. The only downside is that it can be a little noisy when they are busy. They have a nice outdoor patio with a firepit and lots of flowers. They are only open for lunch in the summer, but I try and have at least a couple of meals there!
Italian Restaurants in Frisco
Greco’s is a good choice for Italian food. They have great happy hour deals and a large bar that is usually hopping during happy hour. Bar tables are limited so you may need to go early if you want the happy hour deals as they are only available in the bar. They have a small patio for outdoor dining and are able to open the dining area up to the patio for great airflow during the summer months.
Vinny’s is another Italian restaurant in Frisco that is fantastic! They recently moved across the street while a major redevelopment happens in their original location near 4th Avenue.
Breakfast & Lunch
If you are looking for a good, quick breakfast, try the Log Cabin Cafe. You can be in and out in a hurry as the waitstaff hustles! They serve breakfast all day, but are only open for breakfast and lunch.
The Butterhorn and Bread & Salt are two more fabulous, breakfast and lunch only spots on Main Street. The Butterhorn has very limited outdoor seating with a few spots on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. Bread & Salt has a larger patio but not many spaces inside.
More Frisco Restaurants
The Uptown on Main was my favorite place for lunch when they were the Boatyard. They have a great selection of salads and a nice summer deck. Prices have gone up some since the remodel but now they have more seating and a cute little rooftop deck with a tiki bar for summer fun. They have a good wait staff and are very accommodating.
Frisco Prime is on Main Street where the Blue Spruce used to be. They have unique food choices you won’t find anywhere else in the county. It’s a more upscale restaurant with delicious food.
There are many more great restaurants not mentioned in this post. Several more on Main Street and on Summit Boulevard. in Frisco plus many more across the county. I bet you could stay a month, eat at a different restaurant every day, and still not make it to every restaurant in the county. Do yourself a favor and try a place you haven’t been. It might wind up being your new favorite.
If you’re going to check out these great restaurants, be sure to check and see if Frisco is still offering gift cards. You can get a great meal and perhaps at a discounted price.
