Frisco Star Café has been open for just over a year, but it has already become a staple in the Frisco community for Frisco residents and local professional athletes, owner Tony Mehmedi said.

Frisco Star Café used to be the location of Giovanni’s Italian Restaurant at 9741 Preston Road, Frisco. When the owner sold the restaurant, his nephew, Mehmedi, decided to make his way down from Chicago to Frisco to take a look.

“My dad and I came down, and we loved the place,” Mehmedi said. “Frisco was so nice and so were the people. And even though Chicago is beautiful, it had been getting dangerous, and it was time for us to leave.”

Mehmedi, along with his father and another uncle, decided to purchase the restaurant and change the concept. In June 2016, the family opened Frisco Star Café serving breakfast and lunch.

“At the time, I noticed that there weren’t a lot of breakfast and lunch places open, so we decided to only stay open for breakfast and lunch,” Mehmedi said.

The menu consists of classic American-style dishes, such as breakfast skillets, eggs Benedict, chicken-fried steak, burgers and sandwiches. There are also specialty items such as stuffed crepes and Oreo pancakes.

At age 19, Mehmedi is one of the owners and general manager of Frisco Star Café. Mehmedi had just graduated from high school when he decided to purchase the restaurant with his family. He said as soon as he graduated, he was ready to start working, especially given his experience growing up in the restaurant business. In Chicago, Mehmedi’s family owned several restaurants.

The restaurant has not only become popular with the locals but also professional athletes from the Dallas Cowboys and FC Dallas, Mehmedi said.

“The success of Frisco Star Café is that everybody leaves happy, and we make sure everybody has a smile before they leave that door,” Mehmedi said. “If there’s no smile, we make sure we can flip that smile upside down, just making sure they have a good experience here.”
