My Simple Review on Four Friends Kitchen
This week I visited Four Friends Kitchen with my fam. The atmosphere was very chill and unpretentious. The staff for the most part was friendly. Our server (a tall blonde girl whose name we didn’t catch) was all smiles. That kind of made up for a different server who had a frown permanently etched on her face. I only mention this because she stood out from across the room and barely even acknowledged us when she was clearing some of our plates. Look we all have problems but when you’re a server it’s your job to at least be polite. Overall I’d give the service 4 of 5 hearts because it was a little slow (not because of the server). We waited for about 10 minutes after we finished eating for our check. One server even came over and said, “It looks like you’re done,” before taking the salt and pepper off our table and giving it to another one. She should have at least came back and given us the check!
But let’s move away from the service and talk about the food. Ah, yes the food. Let’s start with the Beignets. OMG! Amazing just like New Orleans (except they’re round instead of the well-known square pillows that the most of us are familiar with). They were crispy on the outside and deliciously soft on the inside and the wild berry preserves sooo good.
Something else we tried were the huevos rancheros; also delicioso. They take a crispy tortilla, coat it with their special ranchero sauce and refried beans, then place an eggs, avocado, relish and sour cream on top. The flavors and textures complement each other perfectly.
Some other things we tried were the omelets, which were perfectly fluffy, and BP & J waffles. The waffles were for the little ones and they gobbled them right up. Yes, the food overall was pretty good EXCEPT … them potatoes guys. Look I like crispy taters as much as the next gal but these were practically burnt on the outside not to mention lukewarm on the inside. What a downer. They were seriously on a roll until I tried one of those potatoes. Even still I would definitely go back because everything else was spot on.
If you’re ever in Denver guys, give them a shot. An overall 4 out of 5 hearts from Simply Made it (just work on those potatoes).
