Friendly’s is a brand new sports bar / restaurant that for now stands alone near the intersection of Warm Springs and Jones. This area is growing before our eyes with new home sites planned all over, so this venue has the opportunity to draw lots of folks. Indeed, there is more than enough parking available. The service is fine, but unfortunately the fries are the worst we’ve experienced. The burger is fine, but it comes off lame when fries are this bad! This shoestring variety looked anemic and discolored. We couldn’t digest more than one. Sorry to be so negative, but we left feeling completely robbed of what could have been a good meal. Change to steak fries, please! There is much potential here if the owners will adjust.
