Breakfast

Brunch

Located on Burnet Rd, The Frisco is the greasy spoon you've dreamed of -- blue plate specials like smothered steak or corned beef and cabbage find themselves alongside some of the best pies in the business. Homestyle goodness aside, this Austin landmark revolutionized the restaurant business in 1953 when Harry Akin (owner of the Night Hawk chain) refused to discriminate against race and gender when hiring employees.
