99 Restaurants Restaurant Review

: When it comes to cheap eats in a casual setting, the 99 gets it right. From Buffalo wings, nachos and potato skins to steak tips, burgers and club sandwiches, the menu is not exactly for the calorie conscious, although there are some heart-healthy dishes and salads. If you are on a budget, nine options priced at $9.99 include favorites like chicken Dijon, panko-crusted cod and New England fried shrimp. Parents like the kids’ menu with a large selection of dishes under $6. End your visit on a sweet note with strawberry shortcake, a hot fudge sundae or the towering midnight fudge cake. In short, the staff is friendly, the drinks are large and the food is inexpensive, a successful formula that has worked for years.
