I've been to Applebee's before and their food is good. I haven't been to Friday's yet. To the people who's been to Friday's, how is their food? NickyTooch, you remember Ponderosa? I don't know if other cities have Ponderosa but Cleveland has it. I remember there was one in Garfield Heights on Rockside road. I wonder if it's still there. There used to be one in Warrensville Heights also on Northfield road across the street from Randall Park mall. I liked their all you can eat buffet. I miss Shakey's restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia. I loved their all you can eat buffet because they had tacos, spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, pizza, fried chicken, lasagne.

I prefer Fridays because of their Jack Daniels sauce. I just had applebees 2 for 20 and i wasn overly impressed cuz they charged me like 4 dollars for the lemonade i got free refills on.

I remember Ponderosa....the last one i recall was on 306 in Mentor but its a Chipotle now.

All the good buffet spots are gone. Only one close to me is a Chinese buffet on Vine st. in Eastlake....next closest american food buffet is out near 615 in Mentor.....too far.

Both are garbage but I'd go with Friday's just for that JD sauce. Shit is bomb.

Either way, I hope you guys realize that half the shit you're going to get at a chain like that is microwaved or pre-made. Almost none of it is fresh.

I try not to eat at shitty corporate chains like these.

If I had to choose, it would be Applebee's because of that oriental chicken salad
