It is always fun to review a restaurant; I love food and even more when I am offered a voucher to sample the menu for free! We visited the Telford branch, and as I have come to expect with Frankie and Benny’s restaurants the place had a pleasant atmosphere and was bustling with happy diners.
I cannot believe how fast our mains arrived. Basically blink and your food was presented in front of you! I do not think in all the meals I have eaten out I have ever been served that fast. I think they must have roped in Speedy Gonzales as the chef cooking up a storm.
We ordered off the Specials Menu, which is very well priced. I think two courses for £10.95 is good value. My husband went for the Ranch Burger
I settled for the Philly Chicken & Bacon Wrap
Both meals were quite generous portions, but I felt my wrap was missing the smothering of cheese sauce it promised and had been over filled with onions instead! I quite like onions don’t get me wrong but it was the over-riding flavour from the wrap and I would have liked to taste the cheese and the chicken in there too! I finished my meal so it was not a complete disaster, I can tolerate onions but if the description promises lots of cheese, lots of cheese is what I am after when I pick it!
Luckily desserts came up trumps. Hubbie had the Salt Caramel Cheesecake and was very complimentary about it and as a connoisseur of cheesecakes that is high praise indeed!
I had the Banoffee Brownie, which was very tasty, a good-sized portion and an indulgent treat! Just right for my sweet tooth.
We had the boys with us and we ordered off the children’s menus for them and I was even more impressed with what they had on offer and the decent prices. It does not hurt you are also given a little pack to keep them occupied, helps them sit at the table nicely for a change…
We shall be back! If you fancy having a nose over the specials menu yourself you can do so here.
