Featuring fried shrimp in a spicy, creamy sauce, this appetizer has countless fans across the country. It's so popular, in fact, that Bonefish Grill's menu now includes an entree version: Bang Bang Shrimp Tacos.

If you're more interested in the appetizer, though, Wednesday night could be your new go-to night out. A rep for Bonefish Grill explains that on "Bang Wednesday" nights, the appetizer costs justs $7. Whether you're ordering it as a meal for yourself or an appetizer to share with friends, it might be just the excuse to celebrate the middle of the week (hey, we all need something to look forward to, right?).

If you're looking for a more substantial meal than the Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer, the Bonefish rep also shared a few other popular items at the chain. For example, the Seafood Johnny Cakes, a savory set of pancakes served made with shrimp and scallops, are popular among brunch-goers. (They're served with bacon and poached eggs, too—it is brunch, after all.)

Other popular items include the tuna-based Island Noodle Crunch lunch special and the wild Alaskan sockeye salmon, which comes with a Parmesan-artichoke topping and is served with asparagus and tomatoes.

If you're just stopping in for a drink or waiting at the bar for a table, you can't go wrong with the Smoked Old Fashioned. This is Bonefish Grill's most popular alcoholic drink, made with "Woodford Reserve bourbon and a touch of maple with Angostura bitters and Bordeaux cherry smoked with oak," according to the Bonefish rep. Want a little snack to go along with that drink? Bonefish's most popular "bar bite" is "The Cure," which features fries loaded with Old Bay, shrimp, bacon, cheese, scallions, and the chain's "red gravy" sauce.

Now that you know what your fellow diners are ordering at Bonefish Grill, you might want to switch things up from your usual order. But if you'd rather just stick with the Bang Bang shrimp, you're in great company.
