I had noticed a diner called The Frisco during an earlier trip down Burnet Road, so on Friday morning, I decided to try it for breakfast. Little did I know that the Frisco dates all the way back to 1953, and is the last remaining location of a former chain of Night Hawk restaurants founded by a former Austin mayor Harry Akin. The first thing I noticed about the Frisco was its handsome and richly-appointed interior, and the hustle and bustle of staff members as they frantically worked to get everyone their orders. Despite it being nearly the lunch hour, I chose to order breakfast, and my bacon and cheese omelette was very good indeed. Although the Frisco is a diner, it is not open 24 hours a day. The manager explained to me that Burnet Road has started becoming a ghost town at night, and everything along the road closes early now because nobody comes in. Still, the Frisco opens each morning at 7 AM, and their breakfast is as good as any in the area.
