a.k.a. Friscos Restaurant Review

: Immense sandwiches and salad bowls have made a.k.a. Friscos’s name. We like the West of Santa Fe salad, which is as kitschy as its name and loaded with shredded spiced chicken, cheese, shredded lettuce and scoops of salsa. Consider, too, the overstuffed baked potatoes and the trademarked exploded potatoes, a rambunctious take on a warmed potato salad. Tucked away in a giant industrial park, the place is hard to find, but it’s worth the effort. Its décor resembles a large, oddly decorated concrete factory, making it one of the area's most interesting restaurants.
