TGI Fridays Restaurant Review

: How can you go wrong with more Fridays in your life? At this all-American chain, the staff always seems to be having as much fun as the customers. Generous portions are a hallmark, and the menu is varied, too, with options for all diets including gluten-sensitive diners. You could make a feast from appetizers alone: nachos, bacon mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese bites and green bean fries (that can't be as healthy as they sound). But you'll be just as happy if you skip straight to the sizzling chicken and shrimp or smoky, slow-cooked Jack Daniel's ribs. For the carnivore, Fridays offers one heck of a burger line-up, and steaks will satisfy your appetite without depleting your budget. Oversize desserts like Tennessee whiskey cake are notable, too: top it with Baileys, and you'll be doubly delighted.
