American Eating in Jeddah with Updated Reviews

There is so much here that reminds me of my home back in the USA! Everytime I've lived abroad-it's the food that brings life to the phrase "comfort food." Here are some of the nearby food places in Jeddah: Fuddrucker's, On the Border Mexican, Applebee's, TGIF Friday's, Hardee's, McDonalds, Chinese food, Baskin Robbins, Dunkin Donuts, Starbuck's, KFC, Subway, Quizno's, Domino's, Pizza Hut, Marble Slab, and Tutti Frutti.


On the Border - Me with my "non-alcoholic" Strawberry Colada.

The outside of Fuddrucker's. I love the lights on it!

The outside of "On the Border." The food was ok and the service was great! However, the food was nowhere comparable to the authentic mexican food we are used to in Houston, TX.

Baskin Robbins - There are more ice cream shops here, compared to anywhere in the US!

One of my favorite places - Starbuck's. I have only come across 5 in the Jeddah area, nearby where we live. They seem to be the only coffee makers who make iced coffee.
Gulf Royal Chinese in the Rawdah area. The atmosphere was great but the food was not as good as what we were used to in the US. It was also not worth the money. But, the atmosphere and service was great. The kids play area was also a plus!

TGIF Friday's. The food here was ok, but double the price of what we paid in the US. It was nice to be in the American atmosphere, but not worth the money.

Fudrucker's again...can you tell I loved this place? The Burgers were great and the service also! 

Applebee's - The food was good, better than TGIFriday's. The service was also great! But, it was double the price we would pay in the US-so not worth the money to us.

Hardee's - The food quality here was not as good as the US. But, there are many locals and expats that like it and say the food it good.
