I'm going to guess they also don't respect for this reason:
|Beer's available in 2 sizes. I like that they have Shiner on draft.|
|The Lovely Spouse got the rum ribs with slaw and sweet potato fries. He said the ribs were sweet, as he was expecting.|
|Obviously he enjoyed them because there was a caveman pile left over.|
We didn't get dessert because we didn't feel the need for it. I'm told the desserts at Fridays are quite good. We just never bother with them.
Other items on their current menu (it changes seasonally) we've had on other trips that we'd recommend include the Strawberry Fields Salad (with the optional grilled chicken) and their burgers. During marathon season they have special menu designations for items recommended for training, carb loading and recovery. They're also running a Pick 2 for $10 special.
|The bar area after re-branding. It's a lot more bright than the dark Friday's of years ago. They have nightly drink specials.|
|The wall decor remains, but there's just less of it than before.|
So, yea, Friday's is very much the mid-range chain restaurant they've always been. But they've updated with the times and have been smart about keeping up with a changing menu. I never expect fine dining with them and I don't expect the same kind of experience I find with a mom-and-pop establishment. But for a casual mid-week night out, there are far worse places you could choose.
