It’s my mission to review the onion rings in every chain restaurant in the UK that sells them…. I never have high hopes for quality though.
Number of Rings: 8
Cost per ring: 43p
I find that often in chain restaurants the onion rings are dry or soggy and usually from frozen, (Chiquitos and Garfunkel’s I’m looking at you), so I was expecting a very plain mediocre onion ring from Frankie & Benny’s. To my surprise, the waitress said these rings were spicy when I ordered them so I hoped they had raised the bar.
Were they spicy?
Yes, mildly spicy.
Were they mediocre?
Yes, as expected.
The rings were for sure from frozen which I think is such a cheek when they are charging you £3.45 for a portion that probably cost them about 40p MAX.
As frozen rings go I’d say they were slimy yet satisfying. I usually give the bog standard frozens a 3/10 but I’m going to boost the score for the novelty of the light spice. They were standard stodgy rings with a twist.
The texture was totally soft with zero crunch, I was disappointed. They were plain slimy although they didn’t cross the line of too greasy. You win some you lose some.
Slimy, spicy, frozen rings.
