An unexpected lunch at T.G.I. Fridays turned out to be a great day for burgers. Real burgers.
I've always enjoyed the burgers at T.G.I. Fridays, not only does it taste great, it also evokes the cool imagery of classic Americana, pop culture you can taste.
A refreshing Apple Carrot juice to start things off, as we wait for the appetizer and burgers by the bar...
...and with the Blues Brothers watching over you, you're in pretty good company, as AC/DC's "Highway to Hell" blared over the speakers. Classic rock to go with the food, nice.
TGI Friday's Trio Sampler of appetizers arrived shortly, with New York style Buffalo Wings with blue cheese dip, Loaded Potato Skins topped with bacon and cheese with sour cream, and crisp Mozzarella with rich marinara sauce.
Then the burgers arrived. The Classic Fridays Cheeseburger (P 395), perfectly char-grilled premium beef patty topped with two slices of American Cheddar, lettuce, tomato, and onions with a side of crisp fries.
I go for the Jack Daniel's Burger (P 485), thick and juicy fire-grilled patty with a smoky and sweet Jack Daniel's glaze, topped with American cheese with lettuce, tomatoes and onions with a crisp side of thick-cut fries. Oh, did I mention the thick crisp and tasty bacon strips? Nice. And with that subtle but unmistakable sweet and smoky JD in the sauce, perfection in a bun. And I just love it when its filled with fresh onions for some crispness and bite.
A cool bit of iconic Americana right here in the metro. And after so many years, the classic T.G. I. Fridays' burgers still taste as good exactly as I remember it so many years ago. Very cool. Everyone could definitely use more Fridays...
