This is such an overdue post but we'd like to sneak it in before the year ends to thank our good friends from Friday's. They invited us over to their newest branch in the Eastwood City Walk, along with other foodie bloggers. We got to sample some of their signature dishes and the staff showed us a typical Friday's good time.
The party-style nachos were loaded with cheese, meat and salsa toppings.
The trio platter with mozarella sticks, bufallo wings and potato skins, all their famous appetizers in one plate. We were definitely drawn to the potato skins that looked so good with the cheese and bacon.
It's the king of American comfort food, the bacon cheeseburger. The meat was so juicy and flavorful. You can definitely count on Friday's for good burgers.
The refreshments were tasty but a little heavy. We think lighter refreshments would be better with the fried and rich food.
D's favorite chicken fingers and chips. They really know how to make good breaded and fried food. The chicken doesn't come out dry or greasy at all.
The burger sliders featured here were surprisingly good! The perfectly cooked beef burgers were topped with caramelized onions that really got our mouths watering. These little guys really stood up to their larger cousins.
The multi-talented Friday's team
Our finale came with much fanfare and flames. The sizzling chicken and steak fajitas looked and smelled extra appetizing served on a bed of onions and peppers and freshly singed.
The fajitas were served with tortillas, salsa, sour cream, greens and Colby cheese
All the goodies combined for a tasty bite
Of course the meal wasn't complete without a couple of signature decadent desserts for the diners. We had the mocha mud pie - chocolate-almond mousse and coffee ice cream frozen in a chocolate crumb crust.
We also had the brownie obsession - a fudge monstrosity topped with a hulking dollop of good old vanilla ice cream. Both desserts were loaded with chocolate and could satisfy many a sweet tooth. You definitely have to indulge with one of these.
Thanks again to our hosts! We had a fun and delicious dinner. In fact, we loved the place so much that we went back just a couple of days later to try some of the other things we missed.
