TGI Fridays Threw Fried Chicken Wings On Their Newest Burger

Earlier, we learned that TGI Fridays was permanently offering their Endless Apps to customers across the US. Now, the restaurant chain has announced that they’ll also be adding a “Burger Bar” as a way to return to their bar and burger “roots.”

The elevated burger menu will feature seven premium burgers including three brand-new ones from the restaurant chain.


The new Buffalo Wingman Burger boasts a blackened beef patty, Buffalo pimento cheese spread, spicy mayo made from Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce, spicy pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, and red onions. If that wasn’t hearty enough, the burger is topped off with a skewer of Buffalo wings.


The Bacon CheesesBurger is a revamp of Fridays’ original bacon Cheeseburger with an extra layer of cheese. It features white cheddar, an aged all-natural cheddar spread, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, pickles, hickory-smoked bacon, and Fridays sauce.


Finally, the new BBQn Burger is rocking both classic and white barbeque sauces, spicy Jack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, red onion, hickory-smoked bacon, and Cajun-spiced crispy onion strings.

Along with these new burgers, Fridays is including their Jack Daniels Burger, Really Good Cheeseburger, Turkey Burger, and Vegetarian Black Bean & Avocado Burger.

The Burger Bar menu will be available starting Wednesday Feb. 22 at all participating TGI Fridays locations across the United States.


Nutella Mousse Donut Burger, and the Rest of the Menu at Burger Bar Las Vegas

For those familiar with the Vegas lifestyle, the culture demands the grandiose. And for us, that meant a 36-hour Vegas trip with 3 hour windows of eating at different restaurants, all weekend long.

The first stop after our CA to NV road trip (which took 6 hours, thanks rubberneckers) was to Burger Bar at Mandalay Place, a shopping destination in between Mandalay Bay and Luxor hotels. While we expected an array of quality burger plates, what was emblazoned in our memory was the dessert — a Nutella Mousse Donut Burger. Against traditional Adventure storytelling, we’ll start with the dessert first:

While the official title of this dessert is mediocre at best, the Chocolate Burger AKA the Nutella Mousse Donut Burger, is served with a warm donut (Krispy Kreme-esque), Nutella mousse patty, passion-fruit gelatin (faux cheese), fresh strawberries and kiwi slices (faux pickles).

For those of you who order dessert as appetizers, be wary, as you might spoil a mighty filling dinner on the way. To be noted, we were extremely full before the dessert arrived – but to not be outdid we opened our digestive trap doors to find room for this sucker. And then in a narcoleptic fashion, we immediately fell asleep at our tables. #notreally, #butsorta:

Burger Bar Buffalo Avocado Asparagus Fried Egg Jalapeno Bacon Colby Jack Cheese

There are a multitude of options when ordering your custom burger at Burger Bar including types of meat (angus, lamb, buffalo, wagyu), bun, veggies, cheeses, extra meats, seafood, and sauces. The burger above was a buffalo burger on a sesame bun with avocado, fried egg, jalapeno bacon (tough to go back to regular bacon), asparagus and chipotle aioli. And can’t forget the buttermilk zucchini fries. Yumtown, USA.

The dissected shot:

The next burger: wagyu patty on an onion bun with mozzarella, prosciutto, spinach and grilled onions. Wowee.

You can probably discern our FOODBEAST verdict, but in the Las Vegas realm of perpetual burger-themed restaurants at every hotel and shopping destination (BLT Burger, I <3 Burgers, Le Burger Brasserie), give Burger Bar a fry — err, I mean try.
