The Best TGI Fridays Wing Sauces

TGI Fridays is an American chain restaurant specializing in casual eats like burgers, wings, and other bar food classics.

While some guests visit the chain for its signature cocktails or colorful desserts, it’s not surprising that chicken wings are among the most popular items on the TGI Fridays menu.

TGI Fridays offers traditional and boneless wings with a variety of flavors, including eight distinct wing sauces and two classic dressings for dipping.

Once you decide if you’re going with boneless or traditional wings, choose between a small, regular, or large order.

For traditional wings, a small order comes with 8 wings, a regular has 12, and a large one comes with 16.

For boneless wings, a small order comes with 12 wings, a regular has 18, and a large one comes with 24.

Now, it’s time to make the tough decision – which wing sauce will you choose?

From super mild to pretty spicy, there’s a wing sauce at TGI Fridays to satisfy any palate.

You can get your wings tossed in your preferred sauce or choose to have it served on the side.

To help you with your decision, here are the best TGI Fridays wing flavors ranked from good to exceptional.

8. Nashville Hot Sauce

Nashville is famous for its hot chicken. The sauce usually consists of cayenne peppers, vinegar, and various spices.

TGI Fridays’ Nashville Hot sauce isn’t bad, but it’s a bit one-dimensional.

It’s a little smokey and has a good amount of heat, but that’s pretty much it.

Nashville hot sauce is famous for its tang, which this version lacks.

If you love classic Nashville hot chicken, these wings might leave you wanting more tang and spice.

If you’re looking for spicy wings with a little more tang, I recommend going with the classic Buffalo wings instead of these.

7. Apple Butter BBQ Sauce

The combination of salty and sweet has been around since the dawn of civilization.

Even when two ingredients don’t initially sound like a good match, your taste buds might be pleasantly surprised.

Unfortunately, that isn’t the case when it comes to TGI Fridays’ Apple Butter BBQ wings.

These aren’t bad, but there’s not enough apple or barbecue flavor to say if the two taste good together.

If TGI Friday’s is going to make a bold choice with a sauce like this, they need to fully commit.

Instead of a whisper of apple, I would’ve loved to taste that full, bright apple flavor.

The Apple Butter BBQ sauce definitely has potential, but it just wasn’t enough for me.

A regular order of Apple Butter BBQ traditional wings contains 740 calories and 55g of fat.

6. Blaze It Sauce

TGI Fridays’ Blaze It sauce is sweet, tangy, and spicy. In other words, this sauce has a little bit of everything.

Some guests say it tastes similar to orange chicken but with a lot less orange. If you like a hint of citrus, this sauce is worth a try.

The Blaze It and Dragon-Glaze sauces are often compared to each other – they’re very similar, but Blaze It is a little less spicy and a little more tangy.

While it’s not the most creative of TGI Fridays wing sauces, Blaze It sauce will appeal to most diners.

5. Dragon-Glaze Sauce

The Dragon-Glaze wings are sweet, sticky, and spicy.

The sauce itself is much thicker than your typical wing sauce and is closer to the consistency of honey.

Speaking of honey, these wings definitely taste like they have some honey and cayenne pepper in them.

In fact, if you’re a hot honey fan, these might be your new favorite wings.

A regular order of Dragon-Glaze traditional wings contains 750 calories and 56g of fat.

4. Garlic Parmesan Sauce

Garlic Parmesan is one of the most popular wing flavors, so it’s no surprise that TGI Fridays has its own rendition of the classic combo.

This sauce is buttery and rich. It would benefit from just a little more garlic flavor, but the big parmesan flavor makes up for it.

This is by far the mildest of all the sauces offered at TGI Fridays, so it’s perfect if you don’t want any heat with your wings.

A regular order of Garlic Parmesan traditional wings contains 940 calories and 87g of fat.

3. Foxx on the Roxx BBQ Sauce

Foxx on the Roxx is a newer addition to the TGI Fridays wing sauces lineup.

This sauce was made in collaboration with Jamie Fox’s BSB-Brown Sugar Bourbon.

It features cocktail-inspired flavors like spice, citrus, and even chopped cherries.

This one wins the prize for being the most creative wing sauce at TGI Fridays.

Foxx on the Roxx is a surprising sauce; the flavors are unique and might seem odd at first bite.

But the sweetness is just enough, and the cherry goes surprisingly well with the citrus and spicy undertones.

I don’t recommend pairing this sauce with ranch or blue cheese, but it’s a fun and unexpected flavor on its own.

2. Whiskey Glaze Sauce

TGI Fridays’ Whiskey Glaze flavored wings are sweet, smokey, and warm.

They don’t have a kick to them and are more the speed of a classic honey BBQ sauce.

The glaze is not like a regular wing sauce, and its consistency is closer to syrup.

The chicken itself tastes caramelized when it’s covered in the glaze.

With ingredients like molasses, whiskey, and soy sauce, the Whiskey Glaze has a depth of flavor you won’t find in other sauces.

A regular order of Whiskey Glaze traditional wings contains 840 calories and 55g of fat.

1. Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Sauce

Ah, the classic Buffalo flavor that started it all.

While this might seem like an anticlimactic choice for the best TGI Fridays wing sauce, Frank’s RedHot is a staple for a reason.

This sauce is a little tangy, the tiniest bit sweet, and has just the right amount of heat.

Taste these wings, and you’ll understand why Buffalo is the most popular wing sauce out there.

It’s just spicy enough to make your mouth water, but it can be handled by someone who isn’t a huge spice fan.

The only way to top perfection is with a side of creamy, cool ranch (or blue cheese, if that’s more your style!)

A regular order of Frank’s RedHot Buffalo traditional wings contains 620 calories and 55g of fat.


As you can see, TGI Fridays offers a variety of wing flavors to satisfy any craving.

If none of these sauces strike your fancy, you can also order your wings plain and dip them in a side of “dressing,” as TGI Fridays calls them. The dressing options are simple: ranch or blue cheese.

Plus, if you have a sauce you really like, you can request to double the amount they put on it.

Lastly, if you can’t decide which sauce to go with, you can order the Wing Roulette Platter. With this option, you can pick your three favorite wing sauces in boneless style, traditional style, or both.

TGI Fridays changes its wing flavors every so often, so be on the lookout for special and limited-edition sauces they offer!
