One of the original feel-good hangouts for lunch and chick watching. Friday’s has several locales, all good, but this was closest to our driving plan. The burger was simply excellent, as good as any we have tried. Juicy, just the right size and very tasty. By itself, a definitely five wimpy. However, the fries are not quite up to the burger. We wanted to pull the trigger so bad on the high five, but you’ve got to earn it. Everything else is great. So visit Friday’s and have a good time. You’ll probably like the fries. We’re just biased to steak fries or the crinkled variety. As an ’80s-style bistro, Friday’s should understand that.
