TGI Fridays has added six new protein options, four new sides and nine sauces as part of its Grilled and Sauced menu launched in June.

The menu adds a bold, spicy new flavor profile to TGI Fridays’ regular offering, the chain’s US President Brandon Coleman told Restaurant Dive.

“People want bold flavors, ethnic flavors, and they really want to explore new tastes and new spaces, and they like spicy flavors.”

TGI Fridays is hoping to attract younger customers as its competitors such as Denny’s, IHOP and Chilli’s have also added exciting new menu options this year.

  • 8 ounce flat iron steak
  • 6 ounces of salmon
  • Big ribs on Fridays

And four new pages are available:

  • Brocoli Slaw
  • Elote street corn

Customers can drench their protein with one of nine flavorful sauces:

  • Foxx on the Roxx BBQ

  • Apple BBQ Butter
  • Korean Red Chili
  • Orange frosting with spikes made with Hennessy
  • TGI Fridays whiskey glaze on fire

More good news for meat lovers: The New York Strip and chicken prices have been reduced. However, please note that prices may vary depending on location.

But there are other exciting menu changes coming up at TGI Fridays.

“The bigger change that we’re making in the next round … will be quite monumental for our brand,” said the company’s president.

According to Retail Dive, TGI Fridays is planning another major menu change this fall that will offer even more variety and customization.

However, no further details have been announced yet.


TGI Fridays isn’t the only restaurant changing its flavor profile to attract more customers.

Beginning June 1, Buffalo Wild Wings customers have been able to choose between General Tso’s and Sweet Chile Limes sauces for their chicken.
