    Default TGIF Santiago.. Very Impressed!!

    So I decided to Give TGIFridays a try tonight. Took my wife and 3 yr old daughter. I was very impressed!!

    I cant recall ever eating at one before. Because of my daughter, and proximity to our house we would eat at applebees alot. I hated thier food. But they had good draft beer and bar food. Plus very child friendly. So that is what I will use as a comparison.

    First the service was excellent! Met at the door by a host, who brought up promptly to our table. Daughter got crayons and paper to color. We got menus minus the 2 for 995 menu. We had to ask for those. The special is available until 6.

    The waitress was attentive the whole time. This was very impressive bc it was slow. I find when it is slow, staff actully slacks off more. Or finds side work to do. The waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and great at helping us pick what we should eat!

    Who ever is running this place is running a very tight ship!

    There happy hour deals are awesome. From 5~9. Basically mixed drinks on the rocks and frozen between 100 and 150 pesos. Draft beer 75 pesos (presidente). I had 3 different types of margaritas. Frozen lime, frozen chinola, and on the rocks strawberry. All very good. Chinola was a little sweet. So I opted for 2 more lime margarittas. Lol

    We had sliders, that were ok. Only two served with the special. Then we had Jalepeno stuffed chicken and cheesy chicken. Both plates were huge, and much to our surprise very good! Way better than anything I ever had at applebees! The portions were huge. We had enough left over for a full meal to take home! The sides were good as well. Mashed potatoes and brocolli with cheese on top.

    Desert is still in the fridge. So I cant comment on that. But the oreo ice cream sandwich loos good. I wanted the ice cream brownie but my daughter won that arguement.

    All in ... 5 margaritas, a frozen straw berry drink, sliders, 2 entrees and 1 dessert. 2050 + 580 = 2630. Added 500 for a tip.

    Last week I spent almost the same amount in Mr. GRILLED on 27th de febrero with only 2 drinks. The service was aweful and the food not as good.

    One more thing to note. They use paper straws. This was the second place this week were I recieved paper straws. The other being Bon/Frozen yogurt store.

    If anybody is interested in a Santiago meet and great in late May early June. I think this would be a great place. AC was very nice, the place was immaculate, staff very attentive, And there is plenty of room at the bar!

    I'd be glad to meet up with you Don. Let's see what other DR1ers come out. I can hit up Cristorey and Hillbilly. Let me know and I'll be there.

    I agree: TGIF Friday's is one of Santiago's top restaurants. Spendy but very nice, with excellent food.

    I could have easy stuck to the 2 for 995 special. 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and 2 sodas. But 5 margaritas kinda ran up the bill. Also frozen starwberry drink (non alcoholic) was 200. Which was 60 pesos more than my margarita. And 200 peso dessert.

    That sounds great. May 24th or June 7th works for me. Let me know how those dates work for everyone else.
