There are many restaurants around the area that I am sure are great and T.G.I Fridays stands among them.

I walked in and felt welcomed. It only took two minutes for the hostess to speak to me with a warm greeting she asked “How you are doing tonight?” in great politeness. I responded with a smile as she also had one on her face…”I am doing well.”

She then stopped to look around to see where would be a great place for me to sit and eat. It did not take her long to choose a table for me. It was not as crowded as it would be on weekends and that had me thinking to ask her how long it would take to find a seat for people when it is crowded.

The wait would approximately be 10-15 minutes determining how many people are sitting with you. The reason why is because if there is no tables open, we would have to wait for people to leave.

I was sitting at a table normally designated for two people. After three minutes the waitress came to me and greeted with a smile. I gave her my order and she said,  “Okay…I will be right back.” It took about two minutes and I received my drink: a Strawberry Passion Fruit Tea freshly brewed with black tea, fresh strawberries, strawberry purée, passion fruit purée, lemon juice, lime juice and agave nectar).

I loved the taste of it. I was then asked if I was ready to order. My choice was the Jack Daniel’s® Ribs. On the menu it’s described as, “Full rack of slow-cooked, fall-off-the-bone tender baby back ribs with Jack Daniel’s® sauce. Served with seasoned fries and ginger-lime slaw.”

My side was the Jack Daniel’s® Macaroni and Cheese as suggested from the employee.

The ribs fit the description as it was described and the meat fell right off the bone.  Everything else with it was tasty as well.

The macaroni and cheese was different from what I had before in my life. It was layered with a crunch at the top with seasoning. I was also given wipes to clean my hands and the fork and knife was wrapped around in white and red striped sticker that represents the logo of the restaurant bar.

The bathroom was clean and the table I was sitting at was also clean. T.G.I Fridays is a great place that is reasonable when going with a lot of friends or family.

If you are a freshmen, transfer or any other year and have not gone to this restaurant yet, I think you should give their food a try. Especially after you are shopping and walking around in King of Prussia Mall.

If there is a T.G.I. Friday’s in your location near you, I recommend it. Now I’m not saying it is the best, but it is far from a bad choice.

You can also tweet about your day using the hashtag, #TGIFridays and it will show up on their website when you view the Social Happening and Conversations section.
