Review

We went to Frisco Crepes and Grills on a late weekday night, for obvious reasons- we hadn't eaten and were famished! Luckily, despite of the fact that the restaurant was shutting down in like 20 minutes of us arriving, they were ready to take us in and place our orders, which BTW were mains and not just snacks. We really appreciated that and placed our order quick. 

Meanwhile, we noticed that the place was made super cosy and it had random things like number plates and clocks depicting different time zones present! cute, we thought! Very hospitable :)

Food

Grilled Chicken Platter:

My wife is an ardent fan of grilled chicken so she did not take more than 2 seconds to place her order. As you can see, the portions are pretty king size so that definitely appeased our appetite and we dug in. The chicken seemed like it was marinated well because it had tons off flavour and was cooked near perfect! 
The sauce on the side was like a spicy mayo, which was obviously wiped off with the help of crispy crunchy fries on the side.
The salad dressed in balsamic added a nice crunch factor to the meal. We really like it.
San Francisco Spicy Burger:

I opted for the burger because the description had me salivating. I don't know why they don't do regular burger buns though, but having said that the panini bread was not bad at all, just it lacked for the whole burger experience. 
Anyways, we asked for the meat to be medium-well and it was and we loved it. It came dressed with harrissa sauce, some aioli and cheddar cheese with the regular lettuce and tomatoes. We asked for the avocado to be excluded. 
If we had to we would rate it 3.5/5, just because even though everything seemed perfect, it lacked something?

Verdict

Sadly we did not try what we think is this restaurants speciality- the crepes! The list on the menu seemed endless and the next time we go there it will be for the crepes for sure! Everything else is good too, and the service is excellent! For us, in JLT, we really appreciate when restaurants are open till at least 10:30pm, and this is one of them.
Try it, why not?
