The Frisco opened its doors in 1953 as part of Harry Akins Night Hawk chain, which began its empire during the depression two decades earlier.

Akin, a former actor, started his local restaurant on South Congress and Riverside with Night Hawk No.1. A true entrepreneur, Akin developed innovations such as late night service, and even raised his own beef to ensure the quality of food. He hired women and minorities before it was politically correct to do so. In the turbulent civil rights era, he was the first Austin restaurateur to integrate his restaurants.

Akin liked to tell his staff, There is nothing accidental about quality, and over fifty years later The Friscos endurance is living proof of this. From those who have been coming in for years to the new Austinites settling into the surrounding neighborhoods, people of all ages still come to the diner to enjoy a good home-cooked meal.
