“Not As Expected!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

My wife, a friend and I did not find the food here very good.

My wife ordered Bruschetta Chicken Pasta and she said it had too much tomato sauce and not enough chicken and the tomato sauce overwhelmed the flavor of all of the other ingredients.

I ordered the Classic Cheeseburger that was supposed to be topped with American cheese. The cheese was quite strong (probably not American) and the burger lacked any flavor.

My friend ordered the Jack Daniel's Burger and he said he wouldn't order it again.

About the only item that was worthwhile was the complimentary chips and salsa.

The server was friendly.

We won't be going back.

“Gone downhill. Famous Dave's is across the road!”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Overpriced and poor quality. My main course was dumped on the table before I had finished my appetizer. This practice is totally crass and needs to just stop.

My main course was titled Korean beef wrap or something like that. Anyhow if consisted of beef strips, cold salad and an overpowering Asian sauce in a small tortilla.

Last time I came I had a burger which was a tasteless grease fest.

Not good. Not going back.

A bit bizarre that the other reviews claim the place is closed. It's not, unfortunately.

Recommendation: drive across the road to famous Dave's, or old Chicago or....... Anywhere!

“Good food”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I liked the food and the service. There is really nothing I disliked about the place. It was in a great location, right behind the hotel we stayed at.

“This place no longer exists”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

But even when this place was still around, service was below average at best. Food was decent, but did not justify the high prices. Only went here when the girls in our group had a TGIFriday's craving (and you know you can't mess with a girl's craving). Glad its gone. Almost anywhere else is a better option in Peoria.

“really nice for a chain restaurant”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

i've been to a few different friday's locations over the years, and this was honestly the nicest one i've ever seen. the food was solid and the server was great. also, the music was a pleasant switch from the norm - more indie less mainstream radio nonsense.
