This place can be tricky to find, as my GPS took me to the Green Turtle. I stopped in about an hour before closing on a week night. The bartender did his job, but it was obvious he was not in a good mood. This is a small, but modern bar/burrito joint inside a strip center. You can tell that it has many loyal regulars. They have some LCD screens displaying a slideshow of the owner and his trips, his family, and many shots of the customers. I thought it was sort of a cool idea that I have not seen at a bar or eatery. The beer selection may not be large in quantity, but you can tell that they focus on quality and rotate the taps quite often. I did not eat but the food looked very good. I would definitely return if I am in the area.

Great taps (20 of them). Slection from Dales Pale, to DFH, to Southern Tier Choklat, Troegs Mad ELf, to Tommy Knockers. Food is pretty good. Little pricey for the quality and portions of food. Go for the beer, Great to have a hand pump and casks on hand all the time.

Be sure to use MAPQUEST and not Google Maps if youíre trying to find this place. If you end up at the Green Turtle youíre in the wrong spot. Frisco Grille is a really solid eatery and bar... the beer selection is very good, with high quality taps, regionals and imports well represented, and even some rarities as well - ST Imperial Oatmeal and Moorsehead Premium on cask when I was there, plus a couple of Brewerís Art selections. The burrito was really very good, with good quality meats, melted cheese (if you get your grilled) and very fresh tasting tomatoes. Great stuff. I will be back regularly, I think.

Hidden off the beaten path in a pseudo-industrial complex, Friscoís sits in-between a solid coffee shop and a great tailor. Live music or trivia most nights, inexpensive and reasonably good mexican-style food, plus 19 taps and a cask typically available. Mondays are Randall nights. The service is fantastic, to the point that you never think about it: you always have beer, you always have chips and salsa, and thatís how it is. The owners and bartenders and servers are friendly, and the locals are, in a word, a hoot. Their website is almost immediately updated, which is just awesome and really appreciated when youíre driving half an hour to get there. This is typically the best place I can think of outside of Baltimore to get stuff from Wharf Rat, Brewers Art, and Clipper City consistently; plus they evidently have a solid relationship with the Rogue and Troegs reps, such that they get stuff like the Johnís Locker Stock releases and Naked Elf that no one else has. Great place, and definitely work the trip out of DC.

I went here last night for the first time and LOVED it! Oliver, the bar manager, was very cool. Definately the right guy for the job. There were 19 taps and one hand pump, soon to be 2, for cask ale. The taps rotate frequently, according to Oliver, but they always have very good selections. The tap lines were very clean, the beer was delicious. There is no swill (BMC) to be had on tap, just good craft beer. The food was very good with a southwest flair. I was there on Sunday night and the place was pretty quiet. I had Troegs Sunshine Pils, Gordon DIPA, Lancaster Dunkel Weisen, Green Flash Tripel, Brewers Art Resurection all on tap. They do Randalized pints on Mondays and tonight Troegs Nugget Nectar will be Randalized with Chinook hops I think. Canít wait to go back!

Paid a recent trip to Friscoís and I just found this place to be awesome. This to me is a beer bar at its very best. No overkill on draught selections, 19 rotating taps of local, national, and imported craft beer, 20-35 bottled beers, great service, nice atmosphere, and really great food. Their burritos are awesome, and the beers are fantastic. Special events are held featuring craft beers, and their specials and happy hour is excellent. Live entertainment too? The only knock is the fact this place is small, and must get too packed at times. This place is a true beer bar, one dedicated to those who love craft beer. I must visit if you ever find yourself in the Baltimore area.

Perhaps thereís better places to be found, but I really. really enjoyed this spot. Friscoís had all Maryland beers(soon to change) which I enjoyed conceptually. The general manager (Noel) was our waiter and he absolutely was one of the most knowledgeable people Iíve had waiting on me. He knew all but one beer he had on tap and had good reason not to know the newest and also what was coming up and was just a nice guy in general. Highly recommended. (I had my breakfast burrito and breakfast beers there) Some decent bottled beers to go along with the taps too.

The kid (he said he was 17) we had for a waiter was overly attentive, & he didnít know anything about the beers, but he was very willing to ask the bartender, who knew all about the selections. The place is small, but what do you expect from a strip mall joint?

Surprise, itís not your ordinary strip mall joint. These guys had Dogfish head 90min IPA on tap, among a plethora of other, equally awesome beers. Tap selection was the best youíre going to find outside of Baltimore or D.C.

Food was pretty sub-par, but cheap, & chips & salsa are gratis. Trust me, though, you donít go here for the food.... heh.

Youíd never think that this little strip mall place in Columbia that sells tasty, reasonably-priced burritos would be a beer mecca, yet they offer up a regularly rotating selection of good-to-great micros, both draft and bottles. Today on draft they had two new beers for me to rate, plus we got to try one of the rare bottles of Allagash Interval (admittedly for $30). The staff was friendly and helpful. I look forward to getting up there again.
