Bennigan’s Serves Up ‘Summer Shenanigans’

‘Best in Class’ Oh, Baby™ Back Ribs showcased on new summer menu starting June 20

DALLAS (June 17, 2016) – Hello, sunshine. Meet warm Irish hospitality.

On Monday, June 20, Bennigan’s is rolling out a limited-time summer menu featuring an array of chef-driven food and innovative cocktails fit for a Legendary 40th Anniversary celebration. 

The new “Summer Shenanigans” menu includes several hearty entrées that will remind long-time fans why dining at Bennigan’s is a step above the rest, thanks to the large portions, quality ingredients, affordable pricing and the brand’s refusal to cut corners – from the kitchen to the Irish hospitality, amazing service and family friendly environment.

Get ready to fall in love at first bite with the Ultimate Hook-Up, featuring Bennigan’s “Best in Class,” savory Oh, Baby™ Back Ribs – a half rack of slow-smoked ‘fall-off-the-bone’ ribs brushed with zesty BBQ sauce and finished on the grill. Build a delectable combo from the following options:

  • Ribs & BBQ Grilled Chicken – This Outrageously Saucy combo includes a Grilled BBQ Chicken Breast, basted with zesty BBQ sauce, topped with melted shredded Colby cheese and sliced green onions. Served with a side of BBQ sauce, Homestyle French fries and creamy coleslaw.
  • Ribs & Signature Chicken Tenders – This Legendary Love Story pairs the ribs with three Signature Chicken Tenders, served with a side of BBQ sauce, smoky honey Dijon, Homestyle French fries and creamy coleslaw.
  • Ribs & Cajun Grilled Shrimp – The Summer Surf and Turf features a Grilled Shrimp Skewer with Cajun seasoning, served with a side of BBQ sauce, Remoulade sauce, Homestyle French fries and creamy coleslaw.

The savory summer selections continue with three bold new flavors for Bennigan’s Premium Buffalo Wings – Sweet Honey BBQ, Garlic Parmesan and Brown Sugar Sticky Sauce. You won’t need a wingman for this one!

Guests can also enjoy a summertime selection of thirst-quenching, handcrafted drinks, shaken tableside, featuring Deep Eddy flavored vodkas, Jameson Irish Whiskey and Blue Moon Belgian White. There’s no better way to escape the summer heat.

  • Bennigan’s Green Tea – Jameson Irish Whiskey, Deep Eddy Peach Vodka, ‘finest call’ lemon sour and Sprite. Pairs perfectly with the Ribs & BBQ Grilled Chicken.
  • Ruby Ginger Fizz – Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka, Gosling’s Ginger Beer, fresh strawberries and rosemary. A great complement to the Ribs & Signature Chicken Tenders.
  • Cucumber Citrus Mash – Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, Gosling’s Ginger Beer, fresh mint, cucumber and lime juice. Refreshingly delightful with the Ribs & Cajun Grilled Shrimp.

“Bennigan’s has set the standard for casual dining for 40 years, and we continue to differentiate ourselves from the competition with our uncompromising focus on quality food served with friendly Irish hospitality at a price that’s roughly on par with most fast-casual meals,” said Legendary Restaurant Brands CEO & Chairman Paul Mangiamele. “Our Summer Shenanigans menu is a case in point. These combo meals are a great value and affordably priced, and include our thick-cut fries and coleslaw. I challenge you to find a better dining proposition anywhere!” 

Bennigan’s limited-time summer menu items are only available through July 31, so come in soon so you can try them all! 

Now with more than 150 restaurants open or under contract worldwide, Legendary Restaurant Brands LLC is continuing to experience strong growth while simultaneously redefining casual dining.
