Frankie & Benny's, Springfield Quay, Glasgow

Going to the movies at Springfield Quay used to be a fairly one or two choice affair as far as food went but more restaurants have opened up over the last year and, assuming you don't count Burger King, then you can now choose from Italian, Chinese, Indian, Mexican or American. However, we were in a rush and, having tried to get into the Mexican and seen it pretty full, we popped next door into Frankie & Benny's.

We've been in there a few times before and it's always been okay and fast, which was a prime concern given that we had a movie to catch. I was a wee bit worried since, having recently been to the Braehead Frankie & Benny's and found it woefully poor, any slow service would be a problem. However, no such probems here! Frankie & Benny's at Springfield Quay run a well organized shop - fast and friendy service and an efficient kitchen.

On to the food. Again, we can't complain. We wanted something quick and a burger fitted the bill so that's what we had - bacon cheeseburgers, fries, onions rings, etc. All nice and unhealthy but exactly what we wanted. It's not exactly haut-cuisine but for an American style diner, it's excellent.

I here that the XScape restaurant is still seriously slow though so be warned and give it a miss.

Cuisine: American/Italian
My Rating 7/10
