Frisch’s: tasty food, quick service

It’s time for another look at good local eats: Frisch’s deli restaurant in Caste Village Shopping Center in Whitehall.

Located just a quick drive from several Prudential Realty communities, this family-owned restaurant offers some of Chi Quach’s (assistant property manager of Alvern Gardens Apartments) favorite lunch specials. According to Chi, Frisch’s has, “the best broasted chicken in Pittsburgh,” and he’s tried all of their delicious homemade soups. The soups, by the way, are also sold frozen by the quart, so you can take them home for later.

While their Reuben is nowhere near as big as the delectable monstrosity served at Bado’s, it’s a delicious and perfectly portioned meal. Their burgers aren’t fancy or overstuffed with gimmicks—they’re simple, backyard fare cooked to perfection and carefully assembled with all the classic fixin’s. Really, you can’t go wrong with any item on Frisch’s menu.

If you’re a lover of desserts, the chocolate mousse alone is worth a visit to Frisch’s. If you’re not already a chocoholic, you might become one after indulging in this gourmet-level decadence.

Is your mouth watering yet? In addition to the restaurant, Frisch’s also has a deli counter where you can buy bread, meats, etc. and make your own sandwiches with the finest ingredients at home… or you can order a hoagie to go, hire their catering, or take advantage of their new delivery service.

Frisch’s is the place to go for a good, simple meal served on the double. Skip the fast food chain and stop by Frisch’s instead.
