"I've probably been to FF a dozen+ times, and it's always good. I usually like their salads for lunch, but this time got the pork ribs. They were tasty but surprisingly nothing special, and a little more fatty than i thought. BBQ sauce with a good tang. On the other hands, the sides were great - whipped red bliss potatoes, and green beans with lemons. Yum. My companions got the burger with caramelized onions and blue cheese, and the french dip. Both raved. As usual, restaurant very busy, despite reservation had a 10-15 minute wait - not unusual during peak periods in my experience. Service was efficient and friendly. In and out in about an hour for lunch, didn't feel rushed."
