Frankie and Jonnie's - from average to poor

I ate there a few nights ago and was supremely disappointed.

The sides were the worst part of the meal! Au gratin potatoes were drowning in a sticky flour paste. Creamed spinach was baby food and had a lovely part-scalding-part-cold fresh from the microwave thing going on. I'm shocked they dared to serve this!

What the hell happened to this place? It was never 5 star dining, but you could at least count on a decent meal. This was diner food.

    ...and the cramped tables. If you are seated in an aisle, you'd better duck so you don't get decapitated by a passing tray!

      Not to mention the absurd 2 to 2.5hrs wait time.
