    you can make them crispy by either covering them in butter and putting them in the oven or just putting them in the ovan without foil on!
    So it could be either way. If you could taste a hint of butter i would syn for them to be on the safe side!

    those places are cooking food on a budget so they probably wouldn't smother the outside of the potatoes in butter because that would cost them too much - they have specific potato ovens that cook them just right (we used to have the same thing in our work canteen!). I've eaten in spud-u-like and I think it's fine, I wish there were more of them!

    I do voluntary work in a community cafe and our oven is one of those industrial ones that cook a large batch of jacket potatoes in about an hour and a half. As the others say, it is just the oven and not anything put on them xx

    When I go to spud u like theres a light bite meal, you get the jacket with onion and chive cottage cheese and a drink (diet pepsi haha) and its only 3 quid

    I love it cos the one in Liverpool is part of a big food court so if my mates wanna go to mcdonalds or whatever I can just get a spud and not feel to tempted to eat crap haha :)
