The service was a little slow but it was so nice to have a little taste of home in this great big city.

The food and cocktails are good, we visit this place with wife time after time especially in Fridays when is happy hours, u can get two cocktails for price of one, and is great, only the food is almost the same like all around the world in TGI Fridays, but is generally good place.

I have been to a couple fairly good TGI's but this is not particularly one of them. The music was SO loud it hurt your ears and made it impossible to talk to your companion without yelling. The food was slightly overcooked. We couldn't wait to get done and get out so we could hear again.

this place seemed to have half the staff that chili's has one of their competitors- we were greeted by a sour looking hostess who tried to seat us in the most undesirable area of the restaurant but we refused-got the menus then waited and waited while several servers were bs ing-finally asked someone to track down our server who eventually...

First time I visited a tgif and was very disappointed! First we ordered a bottle if wine. I dont expect to get a very good one at places like this but this bottle clearly had been opened a long time ago. I called the waitress and explained her the problem. She insisted that the wine was good without even smelling... More

The decor of this place is rather overwhelming, but the food is reasonably tasty and the portion sizes very generous. The price paid for the steak was not worth it. Drinks were okay but there was nothing special about it. Only go for an experience, besides that I wouldn't bother going again.

Went there last week and enjoyed the Chicken Fried Steak- good food but the chicken was a little bit small compared to States. My kids split a Jack Daniels Burger and enjoyed it but the bacon inside was not the same quality as the US. Free refills help- the waitress was slow either because she had too many tables or...

Just like a TGIF that you would find in any western city. The food seems to be exactly the same, flavour wise and menu choice. A great spot if you have had only Ecuadorian cuisine (which is delicious) and you get a yearning for some good albiet commercial, western food.

This is a typical TGIF you find anywhere in he states except the service is much slower. Located at the San Marino Mall with great views outside, especially at night.
