Friendly's in East Syracuse, NY

While in Syracuse, I visited a chain that was never discussed on this blog. That chain is Friendly's...

I had a Ruben sandwich. The sandwich consisted of corned beef, sauerkraut, cheese, and thousand island dressing on rye bread. The sandwich's ingredients seemed pretty benign, but somehow massive amounts of grease kept on magically appearing. The sandwich was sitting a puddle of oil when I picked it up, and more oil kept on dripping out as I was eating. With all this dripping oil on a sandwich that shouldn't be dripping oil, I can see how Friendly's got it's reputation of having some of the unhealthiest chain food around.

I'm not going to go rushing back to a Friendly's any time soon. The amount of grease was scary and their sandwiches were the price of dinners at some other restaurants. To me, Friendly's remains in the same category of restaurants to me as Denny's and IHOP. Places you go when you can't find anywhere else...

Eh, it's not uncommon. I run across a lot of grease in my reuben travels. I should open a grease bank account.
