October 3, 2012
 After the waitress sat us at one of the large tables manager Debra Donathan came over to greet us. She quickly took charge and told the waitress that she wanted us to sample a variety of their specialties:
First to the table was their famous cornbread and then came the appetizers;
Fried Zucchini - Zucchini slices dipped in seasoned batter, served with cilantro sour cream.
Fried Okra - Hand battered, fried golden brown.
Fried Mushrooms - Button mushrooms deep fried, served with ranch dressing.

Then out came seven huge plates of entrees:

Two Frisco Shop Legendary Burgers
with french fries, And the famous onion rings

* The Famous Frisco - 5 oz Burger with lettuce, American cheese, special relish, served on a toasted bun.

* The Night Hawk - 8 oz Sirloin burger with blue cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, dill pickle, red onion, served on a toasted bun.

A La Carte:

Then Jamie requested to try their chocolate Ice Box Pie that Frisco's makes fresh daily.

When none of us could take another bite the waitress came out with their Award Winning Coconut Cream Pie saying that Debra insisted that we could not leave without eating their famous dessert.

Jonathan said he now knows how it feels to be the host of man verses food!

Mauri remembers the special occasions of going to the Night Hawk to eat with her family when she was a little girl. "This is the kind of home cooked food Austinites grew up eating, and every bite reminds me how much I love being an Austinite. If you live in Austin or just passing through you must take a special trip to the Frisco Night Hawk!"

Craig was impressed with the Salmon and everyone rated the Frisco Chicken as superb. Jamie rates the Frisco hamburger as one of her favorites and Jonathan said the Chicken Fried steak was excellent.

The Gandy family four gives Frisco's Night Hawk a 8 thumbs up, however Mauri said if there was a way we could give a ten this iconic restaurant deserves the award - Hands Down!
