At the weekend we visited our local Frankie and Bennys in Widnes. We LOVE the Frankie and Bennys brand, and we tend to go every few months. It always has a great atmosphere, and last Saturday when we walked in, we were met by a lit pumpkin and all the staff dressed up for Halloween. We were booked in at 4.30pm and the whole place had a great party atmosphere. We were lead to our table and greeted with party hats and streamers, which I thought was a nice touch. Daughter soon made use of them.
We decided to order the double dip dough balls to share which came with 2 sauces. OMG these were gorgeous, and the cheesy jalapeno sauce was to die for. Only wish we had ordered 2 portions, as we soon polished them off. Main meals were as below. The tween decided to stick with his ‘I only ever order a burger when I go out’ tradition ! I opted for the Cajun Chicken pasta which was lovely. I don’t usually order pasta dishes, but having a sore throat I thought the steak would be too much of a challenge ! Husband had the Calzone Pizza which he thought was delicious and fresh, and believe me he is a connoisseur of all things pizza ! Daughter had the Spaghetti Bolognaise, which true to form ended up with half of it down her top.
Plates all cleared, and daughter was the only one who had any room for a dessert. We watched as she happily munched her way through her bananas and custard….. well that is one of her five a day ticked off ! Then came the fun part. Frankie and Bennys are running a campaign called #frankiesfangs. The idea is you get some sweetie fangs at the end of your meal, and take some pictures wearing them. You can tweet them using #frankiesfangs and be in with the chance of winning a family meal. We had so much fun taking the fang pictures as you can see below !
Even though the restaurant was really busy, our server was excellent and was really friendly towards our children. We had a fun night out filled with yummy food at our favourite restaurant. All the servers looked great in their Halloween costumes, and the place looked extra spooky. We will no doubt be back very soon, especially as they have a £10.00 off voucher on their website when 2 mains our purchased from Sunday – Thursday. Great offer from Frankie and Bennys.
We were given a £50.00 voucher towards our meal and all views are my own. Thank you to Frankie and Bennys for a great night.
