TGI Friday's

Yeah, it's a chain restaurant. But we like it. We like it a lot. We used to go to the one in Dickson City, which is ok, but now we go to the one in Wilkes Barre. The service here is exceptional. We got a free appetizer just for being a first time customer at that TGI Friday's. The servers actually act like they like their job. They are very pleasant, but not in a fake condescending way. Nothing is more annoying than some douchebag waiter kneeling down next to your table in order to make direct eye contact with you just to say "Hi, I'm Brad. I'll be taking care of you tonight, mm k?" But don't worry, you won't find that here.
We have the same thing every time - the 3 courses for $12.99 deal. You can choose from a host of appetizers, entrees and  a couple of desserts. Danelle gets the potstickers, (they give you 6), and the bacon cheeseburger without the bacon. Once she tried the chicken strips, and was so disappointed. They were totally flavorless. I always get the potstickers for the appetizer and the parmesan crusted chicken for the entree. This is surprisingly good. It's a good portion of baked parmesan encrusted tender chicken, served with spinach ravioli, and a lovely tomato mozzarella salad. And then, as if that weren't enough, you get either peanut butter pie or vanilla bean cheesecake for dessert.
Now, obviously, no human being can eat this amount of food in one sitting. I doubt that even a bear would eat this much food at one time. So we usually take half of it home and eat it for lunch the next day, making it an especially good value.
There you have it - two snaps up for TGI Friday's. Make that two snaps up in a circle!
