“Decent food, but not worth the trouble”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

We gave the management lots of chances to put their "foreground music" into the background, but the corporate "theme" seems to be more important than our experience. The food is good enough (we could always find something we liked), but dealing with the management and the "holy fear" of corporate punishment for working around the "foreground music policy" so we could hear our conversation just isn't worth the trouble of walking in the door.

“It feels like Friday everyday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

We sit in a booth and eat in the bar in this Fridays. Generally we share a Jack Daniels burger and a Chipotle yucatan chicken salad or a Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad for a filling meal. We like the Fridays Pick Three For All with boneless wings, pot stickers, and potato skins. Usually we get an evaluation that allows us a free app when we return. We use coupons from local flyers to get $5. off when we don't have other offers. We have a Stripes card and build points for free food. This also triggers free tortilla chips and salsa when we arrive. We have a lunch punch card we use in the bar, so that after 5 lunches we get a free one. We think that Friday's food is good, and the servers are friendly, so it's one of our frequent go to restaurants.
