        Pros

        Lots of opportunity if you want to move into restaurant management. Fun work environment.

        Cons

          I have been working at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group full-time for less than a year

          Pros

          The staff is fun. Great for a couple of laughs. Good if you're making the move from Fridays to nicer dining. Cheap health insurance.

          Cons

          The host stand controls how many customers you get. No one manages the host and so whoever their favorite people are get the most customers. The customer count is usually not even close to being even. The side work is crazy! If you get cut at 9:30 PM with no tables, you'll probably be there until about 11:30 or midnight and that is no exaggeration at all. Sweeping your section, polishing a crazy amount of glassware,...

          Advice to Management

          This company needs 2 staff more busser and runners. the busser's in runners should be doing more side work than they are.

          You can never save your way to prosperity. Focus on growing top line sales and taking care of your people. A little extra labor will go a long way.

            I worked at Del Frisco's Restaurant Group

            Pros

            Good team effort and professional team management

            Cons

            Sometimes needed more workers in busy day

            Advice to Management

            Look at the team you have and then look at the other team that you’re not in charge of see what they struggle with and help by sharing the duties when at the end of the day the whole company benefits from the success of each day
