American classics have been the foundation of so many restaraunts across the country, but there is no question that you can find great American cuisine at the famous chain restaraunt T.G.I Friday's. My mom and I recently came across one in Toledo, Ohio, while we were in town for the weekend.
After a long time of deciding what we wanted, my mom chose a twist on the classic beef burger, the Sedona Black Bean Burger. The burger was topped with a chipotle cream sauce, melted Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, balsamic glazed onions and fresh avocado with their seasoned fries on the side. I decided to try the Mediterranean Mahi-Mahi Naan 'Wich which sounded yummy and unique. Grilled and fresh mani-mahi was sandwiched between naan bread with balsamic glaze, cucumber yogurt sauce, glazed onions, garlic, basil and Roma tomato bruschetta and mixed greens.
My sandwich was fresh and super flavorful, just as I hoped it would be. The yogurt sauce was thick which balanced out the light mani-mahi. The naan bread was fresh, and did't fall apart as I thought it might've with all that was inside. Overall, my dish was very filling, without me feeling stuffed like I usually am after I eat a burger or sandwich.
My mom's black bean burger looked super good, and she said it had a kick to it, but had an awesome southwest flavor like it was suppose to. Her burger was super filling for her, although she finished most of it. We were full enough to decline dessert, which I was disappointed about, because they had some super yummy sounding dessert dishes like the classic Brownie Obsession with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.
I had an awesome time at TGI Friday's and I enjoyed looking at their cool wall art that had pool table balls, a Walkman, mini gaming system from the 80s, and a combination of famous historical pictures and posters from America's pop cultural past. It was a cool place to eat in and it was fun to talk with my mom about the pop culture wall art next to our table.
