Baby back ribs: not only are they more than an Austin Powers character callback, but they're now available at TGI Fridays covered in applewood-smoked bacon. There are four other ways that are probably also good... but they don't have the added benefit of BEING COVERED IN BACON.
The move is part of Fridays' new $10 "rib flight", in which you get to choose three out of five varieties of baby back ribs: chipotle smoked BBQ, sweet Memphis rub, Tennessee BBQ, Famous Jack Daniel's, and that bacon-crusted option. The bacon ribs also include a "spicy-sweet chipotle & onion relish", but you've gotta get through the bacon to see that, in case you needed another reminder who the real star of the show is.
