Am I the only person who's had a less than perfect meal at this place?
I took the family here and we all tried....the tenders of course, it's their name, so they've GOTTA be good right? Wrong.
For just under $7 you can get 3 tenders, fries, and a drink. So, the price is great. The staff was also very friendly and extremely quick. The food was at the table before I got our drinks from the fountain.
There's also plenty of parking and plenty of tables. It would take a ton of people to fill up all the tables here.
Ok - let's get to the real issue with this place, the food itself. The fries are of the really skinny variety and just seemed overly "limpy" for some reason - maybe not cooked long enough. However, you could tell that they were fresh. But that didn't compensate for how they were cooked.
The tenders, hmmm. Well, first of all, if they were fresh or not I certainly could not tell due to the vast amount of breading/coating on them. Then they must have been fried for an hour or so because they came out tasting like burnt breading.
These were actually the first tenders ever that my child has NOT eaten. She took a few bites and asked me if she had to eat the rest of them. I'm not into torture, so I told her "no, we'll get you something to eat when we get back home."
We didn't try anything grilled, didn't try the milkshakes, and didn't try anything OTHER THAN what the name states, "Tenders". Because shouldn't the tenders be the BEST thing they have? You don't go to a pizza place to eat salad and you don't go to a lobster pound in Maine to try the quiche. When in Rome...
Anyway, we definitely won't be back. Maybe I hit it on a bad day, because this place certainly always has plenty of business. But, next time we're in the mood for tenders, we'll go down the road to Chick-Fil-A, as they are way better - fresh or not.
