Hard workers – You people are disgusting in the way you take something and turn it around to throw it in someones face. "Oh i cant get my burger rare" blah blah sit and cry why dont you. If you want to eat something rare you should have stayed home and ate the family pet. You wouldnt make hamburger helper rare. its because of people like you that arent satisfied with anything in your life so why not go into a restaurant and take it out on the person waiting on you. Oh because you know getting paid $2.63 an hour is worth taking your meaningless bullsh*t for you to leave a dollar anyway, i dont have bills of my own to pay or a child that i have to worry about. IF I WOULD HAVE COOKED THE FOOD IT WOULD BE THE WAY YOU FRIGGEN ORDERED IT DONT TAKE IT OUT ON ME. scumbag. by the way our food is the freshest food around, its called fresh frozen and we get it RAW unlike APPLEBEES that microwaves everything they have that comes cooked already. your getting the 99 confused. but you wouldnt realize that anyway because your all pigheaded scumbags. next time you want to tip under 18%, IMAGINE SOMEONE TAKING $100 OUT OF YOUR PAYCHECK EVERYTIME YOU DIDNT GET YOUR WAY. IM PRETTY SURE YOUD BE POOR
I took my family to the 99 for dinner last night. My wife and I each got the Three Course Bistro Meal special. Wow! What a deal to get three courses for such a great value. I had Chicken and Corn Chowder, Pork Chops and the Brownie dessert. My wife started with a salad and then had Chicken & Vodka Penne and Carrot Cake. My kids both got something off the kids menu - also a big success. Everyone left happy, which is always a great thing. We?ll definitely come back for the Three Course Bistro Meal again.
Family-friendly chain delivers a varied, affordable menu of traditional sandwiches and entrees. – In Short
The Massachusetts-based Ninety Nine chain has successfully expanded into the rest of New England and beyond by offering huge portions of fresh food at wallet-friendly prices. Popular items include 10-ounce steakburgers, USDA-choice steaks and chops, fresh seafood platters and sizzling fajitas. Calorie-conscious diners enjoy a bevy of salads and several low-carb entrees. Friendly servers maintain a casual vibe, and the welcoming bar area is an ideal spot for solo diners looking to catch a game.
A Good Burger??? – I wouldn't step in to a 99 for anything other than a cold beer. The food is bland and predictable. Nothing's fresh. It all comes kryo-packaged from their commisary ready to heat up, not cooked, but just heated up.
The 99 is the 99 - nothing more, nothing less. Good if you're looking for a cheap(er) place to grab some quick apps with your after-work buddies, but as far as burger greatness - go elsewhere. Have no idea how this chain made the top-ten ... Think 2 Notches Above Friendlys, 10 Notches Below Bartley's in Havard Square or Tim's on Columbus.
Are You Serious – The hamburgers at the 99 are at best pedestrian and at the worst so overcooked that they taste like sawdust.
If you can handle the kids Friendly's gives you a much better burger at a lower price. (Of course no beer)
Fried fish – You can't get a burger rare! They won't sell it to you. I still prefer to take my life in my hands and eat my burgers rare, thank you. The fried fish is pretty good, though
Are You Kidding? – Best Burger? Are You kidding? Not even in the top twenty. Somebody got paid off....
no medium rare :( – I LOVE cheeseburgers- I order them in almost all restaurants. However, my only requirement is I must have my burger MEDIUM RARE. Not well-done, not medium-well, not medium. MEDIUM RARE. I want a juicy, bloody burger. The 99 will not allow me to order my burger to my pleasing. I understand their concerns, but they need to understand mine! I refuse to go there (or anywhere else on my list of restaurants that won't let me order my burger they way I want it) since I might as well go somewhere that will let me eat what I want. I'd be happy to sign a waiver if I end up getting sick from my medium rare burger- I swear, I won't sue! But it's still a no-go at the 99...
UGH!!!!!!!!!!! – You could not pay me to eat any meat from the 99, maybe because I was a cook for them and I saw the way the product was handled from freezer to walk-in to line to walk-in! YUCK>
