TGI Friday's can be found on the Hagley Road ( A456 ). It opened in 1986 and is an American Restaurant which is part of a chain of restaurants with around 45 outlets in the UK.
It takes its name from the expression "TGIF" short for "Thank Goodness its Friday" The theme in most TGI Friday's is typically American as is the food served. This is a popular restaurant in Birmingham.
In August 2008 it caught fire and brought traffic chaos to the Hagley Road in the morning rush hour.
The roof was completely burned through and over 50 firefighters fought to bring the blaze under control. It remained closed for a number of months while it was refurbished.
The restaurant is now open again and features a "Herbie" VW car as part of its frontage.
