TGI Fridays' Cheeseburger Special Just Got Even Better

$5 for a burger and fries? Yes, please. That's a better deal than a fast-food value meal!

TGI Fridays' $5 cheeseburger special was hard to beat, and it made every Tuesday feel like Friday. But now, the deal is even better: You can get a $5 cheeseburger and fries at TGI Fridays every day from now until November 3. Why wait until the weekend to treat yourself?

What does the TGI Fridays special include?

If you're a burger lover, you're in luck. You can score a cheeseburger and fries at the chain for just $5 every single day. That's right: An entire meal can be yours for little more than the cost of a fancy coffee, and for less than the price of two gallons of gas.

And while the "every day" part of the deal will end next month, you'll still be able to get it on Tuesdays after that. So you could, theoretically, keep getting weekly $5 burgers from here on out.

What are the other TGI Fridays specials?

Tuesday isn't the only day you'll want to head to the chain. The restaurant has featured specials for other weekdays, too, and they're almost as good as the burger deal. Here's a list of the other TGI Fridays specials you can enjoy on weekdays.

  • Cajun Shrimp and Chicken Pasta Mondays: You can enjoy a half portion of this spicy pasta for $5.99 on Mondays, or indulge with a full-size portion for $8.99.
  • Chicken Sandwich Wednesdays: Both the Southern Fried Chicken Sandwich and the Bacon Ranch Chicken Sandwich are just $5 each on Wednesdays (and that includes a side of fries).
  • Big Ribs Thursdays: Relax with a half-rack of ribs for $7.99 or a full rack of ribs for $12.99. Naturally, this deal also includes fries, as well as coleslaw.
  • Endless Appetizer Fridays: True to the restaurant's name, the chain saved the best deal for last. On Fridays, you can choose one appetizer (think options like potstickers, boneless wings, or mozzarella sticks) and get unlimited refills.

What about drinks?

Even with a $5 sandwich, you still won't have to break the bank to enjoy a cocktail with your dinner. TGI Fridays has a list of cocktails that are $5 every day, including its signature margarita and Long Island Iced Tea. There are even a few seasonal options, including pumpkin spice sangria, a pumpkin spice mule, and Angry Orchard Apple Punch.

A burger and a cocktail for just $10? These TGI Fridays specials are almost too good to be true. If you love the classic American burger, this is one deal that's definitely worth checking out.
