TGI Fridays Ups its burger game

Burgers. Full stop. Big fat juicy burgers with too many toppings on top (though that’s subjective) make my world go round. If you’re a hot dog person, please stop reading. This post is not for you.

With that said, fellow burger aficionados, I’ve got some news. TGI Fridays recently introduced their all-new Big AF Burgers menu. Let me tell you, as someone passionate about burgers, this lineup is simultaneously delicious and humbling.

They’ve ingeniously combined their enormous burgers with fan-favorite appetizers. I’ll say that again; burgers meet TGI Fridays epic apps. Take a deep breath, and let’s dive deeper…

The New Breakout Burger Stars

Each of the new five burgers on the TGIF menu boasts a thick six-ounce patty seasoned with big, bold flavors and char-broiled to absolute perfection.

They’ve then topped them with one of Fridays’ signature appetizers and served them with either a heaping double portion of fries or a side of Southwest Potato Twists. Here’s a rundown of these larger-than-life creations that have captured my burger-loving heart:

  1. Buffalo Wingman Burger. This burger has it all for all my spice lovers out there. Piled high with pimento bleu cheese spread, Frank’s RedHot Buffalo sauce, spicy aioli, fresh lettuce, tomato, and onion, it’s accompanied by two sides of fries and two bone-in Buffalo Wings on top for an extra fiery kick.
  2. Fridays Signature Whiskey-Glaze Blaze Burger. This burger is perfect for those who love a touch of sweet heat. It’s topped with bacon, cheddar, spicy aioli, jalapeños, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Plus, it’s served with a double portion of fries and tender ribs coated in Fridays’ Signature Whiskey-Glaze Blaze right on top of the bun for a drool-worthy bite.
  3. Philly Cheesesteak Burger. As a tribute to Philadelphia’s culinary staple, this burger features roast beef, warm queso, seasoned red and green bell peppers, onions, pickles, and melted cheeses. To top it off, a Philly Cheesesteak Egg Roll is skewered on top for a unique taste sensation and all served with a double side of fries.
  4. Southwest Tornado Twists Burger. This burger is truly one-of-a-kind. It’s loaded with spiral-cut Southwest Potato Twists on the side, under the bun, and topped with warm queso, mixed cheeses, house-made pico de gallo, lettuce, and spicy aioli for a burst of flavor.
  5. Nashville Hot Chicken with Fries. For those days when I crave something different, this spin on the Nashville classic is perfect. Cajun-spiced giant onion rings are stacked high atop a chicken sandwich, complete with Nashville Hot sauce, Ranch dressing, bacon, pickled jalapeños, and fresh cabbage mix. And, of course, fries come on the side for added indulgence.

I’m thrilled that TGI Fridays is bringing even more fun to the table with their Big AF Burgers, and I can’t wait to try every single one of them. If you’re as excited as I am, you can enjoy these incredible burgers at TGI Fridays restaurants nationwide or order pickup or delivery on, now through June 5.

And guess what? They’ve also added three refreshing new drinks to their menu: Ocean Oasis, Mint Julep, and Dragon Fruit Margarita. So, whether you’re craving a beachside getaway-inspired sip, a minty must-try, or a pretty pink margarita, TGI Fridays has got you covered!
