TGI Fridays mocked for ‘ridiculously overpriced’ £95 meat box ‘only a moron would order’


DINERS have mocked TGI Fridays after the eatery began offering a £95 meat box that "only a moron would order".

Customers say the "ridiculously over-priced" offerings - which include a range of options from burgers to ribs - would be available much more cheaply at a butcher's.

The chain, which has reopened most of its restaurants in England, as well as all of those in Scotland and Wales, says customers can choose between one of three boxes.

The website says: "We have launched Fridays Butcher's Boxes, an online meat delivery service, as part of our Fridays At Home range so you can enjoy more of the Fridays experience from the comfort of your own kitchen."

The most expensive box retails for £95, and includes four ribeye steaks, four racks of ribs, 12 sausages, four burgers and three sauces.

The cheapest option, priced at £75, features four racks of ribs, 24 sausages, eight burgers and two 150g servings of sauce.

But Facebook users have hit out at the service.

One said: "£95? You have to be a special breed of moron to order one of these."

Another said the deal can be bought "a lot cheaper" from a local butcher.

One wrote: "Thought this was a good idea, then I saw the price."

TGI Fridays vs

What do you get for your money?

  • offers a Ben's best meat hamper for £54.99. It features mince steak, four loin steaks, 10 salt and pepper wings, a whole chicken, Nando's chicken, four-ounce steak burger, five kofta-style kebabs, gammon steak, a beef joint, a pork loion roast, two sirloin steaks, two rump steaks, 12 Italian meatballs, farmhouse sausages, four chicken fillets, two salt and pepper chicken breasts, two peppered loin steaks and two Texas barbecue loin steaks.

Customers also shared links to sites where similar offerings can be bought for much less cash.

However, others said they'd snap up a box - or made suggestions for future options, writing: "Do you just do a litre of the JD sauce?

"Tried to recreate it but I just can't."

The chain participated in Rishi Sunak's Eat Out to Help Out initiative.

When that came to an end, it began offering free appetisers with any main meal during the first two weeks of September.

And the deal was so popular, it's been extended until the end of the month.

Sun Online has contacted TGI Fridays for comment.
