Nothing special, typical TGI Friday's, really nice wait staff including a UF Gator. BBQ Burger and New spicy Buffalo Burger came with 2 chicken wings on top. The Turkey Avocado was a good choice too.

This dated Friday's still has great appetizers (all you can eat for $10) and great service. The staff and we locals are looking forward to the new updated version to come soon.

If you are in the area you have to check this one out. Our server was Debarri and he was absolutely amazing! The food was delicious and we will be back. TGI Friday's is the best!

Ok? The boba tea was disgusting.... tasted like lemonade. My friend ordered a salad which took 30 minutes to come out ( my wings came out first ) and it came with a burnt lemon? He told the server that he disliked his salad because...More
