    Frankie and Bennys - tbh if she loves F&B why go elsewhere?

    Frankie & Bennys

    Well we did a 21st party at Frankie and Bennys and it was great with superb service good prices and a good party atmosphere plus the lights are lowered and music is played when the bring out the cake that we supplied.:)

    Bad idea, if you take her to TGI's and she hates it you will kick yourself.

    Try TGi's another time, don't risk ruining her Birthday.

    I prefer F+B's.

    TGI's....it is a bit more expensive than F&B's but the adult meals are better.

    Plus register birthday on website and they email you some freebies

    Like Chipsticks said, its the kids birthday so surely its not worth ruining that to make sure the adults get a better meal?

    Theres nothing much to complain about with F&B's anyway, adult meals are brill imo.

    Maybe try a local independent restaurant? They could do with your custom more.

    Went to F&B's for the wifes birthday. Never again. In the (probable) words of Gordon Ramsey 'The food here is ****, not fit for a dog'. No helpful I know, but can't see why people think the food is actually good. Bet the KFC over the road was better.

    A couple of us had chicken that was dried out like a lump of cardboard. A few more had vegetables that were as hard as cannon balls, they literally flew off the plate when spiked with a fork :lol: All in all, not impressed. We did complain and the manager (I assume it was the manager) agreed they were underdone. Maybe I was expecting too much that they employ people that can cook?

    I've always enjoyed it there but I've never ordered vegetables or chicken. Could have been a one of bad experience?

    I like eating at proper restaurants more and always encourage people to go to them rather than go to a chain restaurant for a special occasion. I go to F&Bs before the cinema as this is where they're nearly always positioned, and for that purpose it is really good (and for kids)

    oh **** **** **** **** **** !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so it is!!! oh well its gonna be MacDonalds then lol. We are taking them to Xscape beforehand and thats costing us nearly £200 so we were happy thinking at least we are getting the meal half price............................no way !

    Frankie and Bennys gets my vote, but regardless of that I would of said go with the place you know she likes and try the other one some other time

    Well frankie and bennys it is then......:thumbsup:

    We eat at a TGI's in Manhattan NY a few years back and it was absolutely rotten, just a heads up for anyone going to NY.
    This one, pity we hadn't read the reviews before going.
