TNT Winning Craft Burger
The menu at Chili's Grill & Bar just got some serious star power. On Friday, Oct. 3, 2014 Chili's was featured in the premiere episode of Turner Network Television's (TNT) "On The Menu," starring famed Chef Emeril Lagasse and Ty Pennington as host of the show. In the first of its kind cooking competition, everyday cooks are given the chance to have their dish appear at a nationally-recognized restaurant brand and viewers are able to taste the winning dish the day after the episode airs.
In less than 12 hours from premiere to the doors opening at more than 1,200 restaurants nationwide, Chili's educated over 50,000 team members and trained nearly 25,000 cooks on how to bring this burger to life, just as the winner envisioned. By Saturday, Oct. 4, Chili's restaurants were serving up the new craft burger to excited viewers waiting to try it for themselves.
The winning dish, which is aptly named the "Winning TNT Craft Burger," features a 100% USDA Choice patty topped with tangy slaw, hand-battered and fried house-made garlic dill pickles and Chili's classic BBQ sauce on a toasted potato bun. The dish was created by Dan Marks of Columbia, Md., who is a government consultant for immigration and customs enforcement.
Available now until Dec. 14, 2014 guests can try the "Winning TNT Craft Burger" at any Chili's restaurant nationwide.
