Menu
Fric & Frac was founded in 1976 and has been the neighborhood hangout ever since. Both eclectic and unique, just like its patrons, Fric & Frac has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Whether you're coming in for an amazing sandwich the Turkey Philly or the "Kelly", named after the proprietor's sister, or to check out the billiards room, Fric & Frac has something for everyone. Run by the Ross family, who has been in the industry for years, you can find Max at the restaurant in the afternoon or dj'ing around town in the evening; or say hi to his dad Rudy too. Continually run by the Ross family, we strive to bring our patrons great food and a fun experience. From our awesome nightly specials to our game room, there is something for everyone at an incredible value.

In case you're curious, the name Fric & Frac came from an old comedy duo in the 30's; one of Max's favorite childhood memories is corresponding with Fric. Even if you're not a barrel jumper or stuntman like the original duo, come in and see us. We can't wait to say hi.

Fric & Frac is my go to place to get a good burger and and ice cold beer. This locally owned bar feels more like a cheers where the staff are very attentive and love to hear your story. Their top menu items are not low in calories but hit the spot when you just need something greasy and delicious. My go-to is the bacon cheese burger with pepper jack cheese topped with all the fix-ins. It just melts in your mouth and is full of flavor. If you go don't forget to get a side of curly fries and slather them in ketchup. #cheatday #comfortfood

This is a place for folks who don't mind a 20 minute wait just to order, hamburgers straight out of the "where's the beef?" commercial, fries that are bland and soggy, and service that is understaffed and indifferent. Apart from that, the food tastes good but it's not worth it.

Absolutely terrible and overpriced! I've been away for years so I was excited to explore 39th Street again. I remember Fric and Frac as a pool hall not sure when it made the switch to a restaurant. However that's not why I'm writing this review. The server was friendly but he forgot a beer order and he must of forgot to place our order. I realize this happens but there was no apology or acknowledgment that our would be late. There were 3 other tables that arrived after us which received their food before us. So we got our appetizers after I asked about them. I have to admit they were good. Then our entrée came much later then our appetizer. It was the most disgusting, Sisco fake food I've ever had, it was horrendous and at those prices, completely ridiculous. I can not understand how people were eating there. Never going back!

My girlfriend and I ate there tonight for first time because of Sunday night chicken fried steak special which we both ordered. Atmosphere was nice. Waitress started out decent but quickly went downhill. A salad came with our meal and they must have had to grow the lettuce first...longest wait time ever for a salad. The place was not even busy. After meal came my girlfriend ordered another drink. It was made and sat on the bar several minutes while our waitress socialized with the patrons which appeared to be regulars. We requested the ticket and watched her socialize again for several minutes with the regulars. As for the food...it had good flavor however, the mashed potatoes were barely warm, the gravy was warmer and the chicken fried steak was hot, freshly cooked. We had sought this place out looking for a different place to eat. Although we did not completely dislike it, don't believe we'll be going back. Service speaks volumes.

This sandwich right here, The P&T, has been on our menu since the beginning 39 years ago. Today we have it on lunch special for $5.00 with a side. More trivia... P&T stands for Pig and Turkey, because there is a mountain of it. #History #w39thKC
