“Too noisy, overpriced”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Don't be in a hurry. Service was slow. Food was ok. TV's were blaring and requests to turn them down were ignored. Given the wide variety of choices, I will go somewhere else next trip to Managua.

“1980's movie "Cocktail"”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Somehow they think it is still cool to flip plastic bottles ( know as Flair) like the Tom Cruise movie Cocktail...instead of waiting on clients . Food decent..expensive for Nicaragua...music pounding..old TV' s ...with staff not at all concerned with what is on..staff spends significant time on their personal phones..texting and ?..there are now better option for food, drinks and atmosphere..
They lost their edge here

“Too expensive”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Went here for dinner and thought it was pretty expensive, considering people's salary in Nicaragua. The food is not bad but going to a fridays in north america is like going to a McDonald or burgerg king, but going to Fridays in Nicaragua is like going to a four star restaurant. I may visit again but rather go somewhere else.

“Just another Friday's”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

For those travelers craving a hamburger North American style. The food is typical Friday's and the prices are very reasonable.

“Happy Hour a Little too Happy”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We went to Friday's for happy hour, and we found it was a little too happy. The food was great, the prices were very good but since happy hour starts at 3pm and goes to closing, us getting there later in the evening was probably a mistake. Two fights broke out, the police were called and for about 20 minutes no one was allowed in or out of the restaurant while we waited for the police. They ended up closing early.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, and as I said the food was good, but due to the long hours with relatively cheap alcohol, I wouldn't take my kids there for dinner. Maybe earlier in the day would better for families.

The prices are about the same as they are in the states, I believe.
