Thank Jebus for TGI Fridays…(3/5 Stars)

Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on April 1, 2009

Still fresh off my posts of classy places to eat, my friend Brian and I made our way over to the  TGI Friday’s at 153 E. Erie Street after watching ‘I Love You, Man’ at the AMC Lowes at 600 N. Michigan Avenue

Brian ordered the Jack Daniel’s® Flat Iron:
An aged, flavorful, half–pound steak, hand–cut for Friday’s.® Seasoned and fire–grilled to order, then glazed and served with our Jack Daniel’s® glaze and mashed potatoes. One of the most popular steaks around. ($9.95)

I ordered the Chipotle Grilled Steak Sandwich:
A winner on Food Network’s Ultimate Recipe Showdown. Cajun–rubbed skirt steak piled on toasted ciabatta with Colby and Monterey Jack, roasted plantains & chipotle mayo. Onion rings on the side ($9.95).  This was the second time ordering this sandwich because I am a major fan of plantains.  You get that salty/savory/sweet combo going to the sandwich.  The steak the first time around was really tough which made it pretty difficult to keep in sandwich form.  This time was no different.  Tough steak aside, I would still order the sandwich.


Service was alright, our waitress spoke at a volume only audible to (insert animal with good hearing here).  Plus we could tell she was bored as hell and that TGI Friday’s was the last place she wanted to be.  Maybe she wanted to go with her fellow tweens and watch the Jonas Brothers movie, after all, it’s in 3D.  Also, thanks to TGI Friday’s for the food descriptions and picture of my delicious sandwich.

No green around the river.

Oh man, I can’t wait for summer.  As great as these pictures are, you can’t get around the cold and dreary feel…at least the grass is getting green and the trees have buds on them.
