Thank God It’s… Still Open
TGI Friday’s has been a popular tourist destination, well known to all for Hollywood gimmick ambience and red/white striped uniforms with braces covered in pin badges! An American export dating back a good 20 years, I went to check out their new burger menu and left wondering why I have left if so long between visits. The restaurant walls hung hockey sticks, skateboards, a basketball net and full set of bowling pins and ball. On the ground a Harley Davidson motorcycle and life size Spiderman! A film & TV 3D wall had posters from Sex & The City, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and even Star Wars helmets. The menu offered Chilli glazed chicken, Jack Daniels glazed ribs, surf and turf grills and Mexican Tex Mex. Their new burger menu offered The French Dip, with beef gravy dipping sauce, the Bruce Lee with Asian slaw, jalapenos and crispy noodles. The Monster held two 1oz beef patties with beer cheese sauce, caramelised onions and crispy bacon. The desserts were all my favourites, apple crumble waffles, cookie dough cheesecake, choc fudge cake and warm gooey brownie. Not to mention cocktails such as the Red Velvet, HUGE margaritas and addictive White Chocolate Martinis starting at a jaw dropping £5! Winning!
