Frisco is quickly becoming a global dining destination, and with a melting pot of culturally diverse residents, there is no shortage of delicious restaurants to match the growth. Restaurant owners want to share and celebrate their culture with the one thing that brings people together: FOOD! Here is a guide to some of the best restaurants (in no particular order) that transport you around the world in Frisco.


Rudy’s Kitchen is quite literally a hidden gem. Long gone are the days of gas station restaurants being taboo. They are now the new norm with some of the most gourmet and sought-after food. Located inside of a Chevron gas station on Main Street, it is easy to miss this family-owned Mexican restaurant but once discovered, it will become a family favorite.

Rudy's Kitchen assorted menu items

Rudy and Claudia Martinez have always dreamt of owning their own business but owning a restaurant was not necessarily a part of the plan. Luckily, they followed their passion. Rudy’s Kitchen serves an extensive variety of authentic Mexican street food and is known for dishes like gorditas, street tacos, nopolitas, birria tacos, bistec ala Mexicana, chicharrónes, menudo, and rajas con queso.

Go to Rudy’s Kitchen with an open mind and try something you have never heard of…ALL of it is good! There are plenty of delicious vegetarian dishes available. Birria tacos are only available on weekends. Rudy’s Kitchen is also open for breakfast and available to order via delivery platforms such as Uber, Grubhub, and DoorDash.


Platia Greek Kouzina has been a Frisco favorite for nearly 10 years, and for good reason. The exposed stone walls, rustic wood furniture, and charming Greek décor makes the space feel warm, cozy, and inviting.

Platia restaurant menu items

Platia means “town square” in Greek and is in comparison to a plaza at the center of a city. It’s very common in Europe to have a platia in different neighborhoods to bring people together. Rhea and George Manos, along with Sally Maglaris, have been in the restaurant business for years and wanted to create an environment that makes you feel “at home”, and they achieved exactly that. The menu features a great range of appetizers, soups, salads, grilled meats, seafood, and vegetarian options. But the star here is their delicious gyro. Let’s be honest, good, authentic Greek Gyro served by a Greek family can only be found at Platia, and you will never want to try a gyro anywhere else again!

Know before you go:

Save room for a sweet treat. Desserts here are not to be missed! Platia is also a BYOB restaurant, so you can still indulge in your favorite bottle of wine without breaking the bank. Reservations are not accepted and guests are seated on a first come, first served basis, so go a little early on weekends to avoid long wait times.


Prepare to be transported to Italy without the flight when you dine at Baonecci. The Gambaccini family are natives from Luca, Italy, a city located in Tuscany. They moved to Frisco in the height of the pandemic from San Francisco. Baonecci is a family-owned restaurant that serves authentic, traditional Luchesse-style Italian food using only the highest quality and freshest ingredients. Meats, cheese, flour, and tomatoes are imported from Italy, which makes all the difference.

The Aussie Grind was the first Australian full-service restaurant in DFW, and it’s right here in Frisco. When Angie and Lui Monforte moved to Texas, they brought a little bit of Australia with them and it’s been well received by Texans. The Aussie Grind serves Australian-style coffee, breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a casual setting. Many may wonder what Australian food is. It’s essentially a fusion of different types of cuisines and types of food.

Some of the most popular dishes at The Aussies Grind are breakfast gnocchi, Aussie-style avo smash, chicken parmy (a twist on a classic chicken parmigiana), Australian meat pie, fish and chips, Aussie style burger, pavlova, and pancakes with ice cream (yes you read that right!). It’s never too early for ice cream at The Aussie Grind. You can even get their popular iced coffee with ice cream, but the flat white and lavender latte is a personal favorite.

When Nid Tositrakul and his nephew moved to Frisco in 2019 from Virginia, they had a hard time finding authentic Thai food with flavors they were used to eating at home. They saw this as an opportunity to bring more awareness of true Thai flavors, and 246 Thai Grab & Go was born. 246 Thai Grab & Go is a fast casual eatery designed for customers to try Thai food that honors the authentic dishes and flavors from different regions of Thailand. Everything is prepared and served as conventional as possible and with dishes being made from scratch daily their motto “we serve what we eat” gives diners a glimpse of what to expect.

The “grab and go” concept provides customers with a quick, but quality, dining alternative for the working consumer that may usually resort to a drive-thru option for a quick meal. Although many of their customers order take-out, there is a dining area and guests are encouraged to dine in to enjoy their meals immediately and as fresh as possible. Monthly specials introduce guests to various types of street food dishes that may not be common or available anywhere else, and that alone is worth the visit!

246 Thai Grab & Go is closed on Wednesdays. Their level 1 spicy is equivalent to level 3 spicy elsewhere. Monthly special items may take a little longer to prepare. Delivery is available via Uber Eats, Grubhub, and DoorDash.


One important fact to know is that not all Indian food is the same. Indian food varies based on regions of India and whether the preference is vegetarian or non-vegetarian. Indian food consists of spices, herbs, and vegetables to create rich aromatic dishes. For an authentic experience that will allow guests to experience a variety of flavors and caters to vegetarians, Vrindavan can’t be beat. Vrindavan offers a “Royal vegetarian experience” and serves North Indian Vegetarian food in a true Indian tradition, a thali. Thali refers to a complete Indian meal in which a variety of dishes are served together on a large platter.

The concept is an unlimited pre-fixed thali serving a set menu offering three different types of thali meals served six days a week. (Check restaurant website regarding menu for specific days.) The thalis are filled with a contrast of flavors and textures that complement each other. Offerings are unlimited so feel free to ask for seconds and thirds!

When you think of food in Japan, sushi immediately comes to mind. Luckily, Kinzo delivers exactly that and so much more. Kinzo is a Japanese restaurant co-owned by Executive Chef Leo Kekoa, a former Nobu Dallas chef bringing the omakase experience, a chef-prepared tasting menu, to Frisco. The vibe is cozy, modern, and minimalistic with 22 seats around a large open sushi bar. Expect to see artfully crafted Edomae-style flavorful sushi and temaki hand rolls created from the highest quality of fish and shellfish sourced from the Toyosu market in Japan. If you’re not ready to commit to a full omakase experience, diners can walk in or make a standard reservation and order a mini omakase or equally beautiful and creative dishes off an à la carte menu.
