TGI Fridays

I was given a $50 gift card to this place. Any reccommendations on what to get?

  1. the one thing I have to have any time my friends want to go there is their fried green beans. the rest of the food doesn't do much but fried green beans is a must.

      Agreed. Just get $50 worth of the green bean fries.

    2. Overall terrible food but if you don't mind a calorie bomb, the potato skins are fabulous.

      1. All I can recommend is that if you find something you do like, don't get attached. Everytime I find something I like, it gets pulled off the menu.

            I've never seen a salad bar in any TFGF's that I've eaten at around the country.

              Then obviously you haven't been in the two that I have where I've had the salad bar.

              What difference does it make?

                Are you sure you're not thinking of Ruvy Tuesday's thst have salad bars? I wasn't aware that Friday's had them either.

                  No, it's TGI Fridays. I've been to two that had salad bars. Neither has been particularly large - the bar at Ruby Tuesdays seems to be much bigger and more well-stocked - but they were indeed there. Whether they still are, I have no idea. I've not been to a TGIF in many years.

                  Once again I ask - what's the controversy? Not every restaurant is a cookie cutter of another and many have regional offerings or specialties. I've not visited every TGIF in the country, so I can't say what all do or don't have. I can only speak from my personal, and by reality and practicality, limited, experience.

                  1. re: Suzy Q

                    Geez Suzy-Q there's no reason to be so snippy about it. All Bakersfield and deibu had asked was that they were unaware of any Fridays that had salad bars, and I can't blame them because every single one that I've ever known sure didn't have any either. Your local Fridays must be unique in the regards that they must and no I'm not saying that each and everyone have to be "cookie cutters" of each other but there there isn't any "controversy" about it they were just asking was all. You sounded reallly snide in your remarks back and replying "what difference does it make?" was contrary to what they were inquiring about. No one was getting on your case so no reason to come off as rude. Serioulsy no need to be that way.

                      I've never been to a TGIFriday's that had a salad bar. Can I ask where the ones you mentioned are located? Since they revamped their menu (a la Guy Fieri), they have essentially wiped out any vegetarian options.
