1960's feel... literally.
I thought I was back in 1960's Jim Crow South... Absolutely amazing when people don't even realize they're being prejudiced. I took my child to get ice cream and was told they were out of the common flavors, or basically any flavor I asked for. Then we sat in my car and watched people go in after us and get ice cream. Great learning experience and motivational opportunity for my daughter.
New England-based chain serves affordable diner food and ice cream treats in a homey, family-friendly atmosphere.. In Short Friendly's opened its first location in 1935, and thanks to red vinyl booths and an old-time vibe, many of its 500-plus locations still feel rooted in that era. While nobody's ever mistook Friendly's signature ice cream for Ben & Jerry's, the restaurant does deserve acclaim for its Fribbles (extra-thick frappes) and inexpensive sundaes. Straightforward breakfast platters are served in the mornings only, while standard diner fare (tuna melts, beef burgers) is offered day and night.
