Co-owner Jennifer Rearick opened Stan’s Main Street four years ago and said she aimed to make the restaurant a laid-back, fun hangout location in Frisco.
“There is never a dull moment here at the restaurant; I’m never bored,” she said.
Rearick describes Stan’s as being Frisco for everyday people who just want to have a good time, have a drink or have a burger.
Stan’s serves a mixture of Americana cuisine. The menu includes fried catfish, burgers, chicken-fried steak and sandwiches. There are daily drink specials, such as $4 house margaritas and $3 bloody marys.
At almost every table there are games for patrons to pass the time, such as UNO, Jenga and Monopoly.
“It’s just fun; you come here, and you just know you’re going to have a good time,” Rearick said. “We want to get people off their phones and really enjoy their time here. Plus the games take the pressure off the servers and the kitchen.”
The decor inside Stan’s is a mix of quirky signs and art. Rearick said she would best describe the decor as “randomness.”
The patio is lit with string lights and unusual pieces of art with a pumpkin patch to celebrate the fall season. Across a wooden fence reads “Stans Happens,” which is the restaurant’s signature hashtag for all social media. The patio also has a stage where live music is played almost every week.
Co-owner David Gates said another reason people like coming to Stan’s is because of the history. The restaurant has been open four years, but the building is about 111 years old and has been home to other Main Street businesses, such as Manny’s Tex-Mex and Randy’s Steakhouse.
“It’s your neighborhood bar and restaurant that you, your friends and family love to come to,” Gates said. “You have everything from nearby neighbors to city officials coming in here.”
