Frisco Dinner Menu

This menu is from the same collector as yesterday’s, which means it is from about 1963. I originally interpreted the “D-44” code on the interior to mean it was from 1944, but the 44 must have had some other meaning for Frisco’s commissary.

The menu offered several entrées on the table d’hôte side, including halibut, oysters, braised beef, omelet, club steak, and half a fried chicken. The a la carte side also had a hot turkey sandwich, complete with potatoes, peas, dessert, and beverage. The steak dinner was $3.25, or about $35 today, while the hot turkey sandwich was $1.75, or about $19 today. The cheapest entrée on the menu was an egg sandwich at 50 cents, or about $6 today.
