While attending the Transporting Students with Disabilities & Special Needs Conference & Trade Show on March 15-20 in Frisco, Texas, you are probably going to want to try some local cuisine. So we pulled together some interesting options around the Frisco area, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, hole-in-the-wall and after-hours spots (in alphabetical order). We tried to avoid the usual cookie-cutter chain places. So enjoy! And don’t forget to tell us about (and sample) any good gelato shops you find!
