Bennigan’s Introduces Bold New Menu
Continuous menu innovation has always been a hallmark of the iconic Bennigan’s brand, and it is a key driver of its recent growth both domestically and overseas.
In recent days, Bennigan’s has rolled out a completely refreshed menu that’s bringing big, bold flavors to the table with sauces and jams all made in-house daily.
The chef-driven 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 generous portions, quality ingredients, affordable pricing and the brand’s refusal to cut corners—from the kitchen to the amazing service and family-friendly environment.
Get ready to fall in love at first bite with Bennigan’s new handcrafted, half-pound Prime Burgers, created with premium 100 percent American ground beef and layered with bold flavors all made in-house by a talented culinary team. Your Legendary burger experience comes in three varieties, each served with a side of homestyle French fries:
Mahal-O’Burger—sharp white Cheddar cheese, drizzled with Sriracha aioli, topped with cinnamon sugar-glazed grilled pineapple rings and finished with housemade pineapple sweet chili sauce
Jala ‘day Burger—Cajun spices, Sriracha aioli, sharp white cheddar, fresh fried jalapeño slices, drizzled with your choice of chipotle ranch or freshly made jalapeño cream sauce
The B.O.M.B (Bacon. Onion. Marmalade. Bourbon.)—slathered with bourbon-infused bacon jam over melted American cheese and topped with crispy fried haystack onions
The savory summer selections continue with the new Passion Fruit Glazed Pork Chop—a bone-in, thick-cut pork chop seasoned and grilled to perfection, brushed with Bennigan’s chef-inspired passion fruit glaze and served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli sauté.
In addition to its signature chicken tenders, Bennigan’s has perfected the chicken sandwich with the newly added Lina’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich—a tender chicken breast, hand-breaded and gently fried to golden perfection, topped with pepper jack cheese, drizzled with spicy Sriracha aioli and finished with kick-up coleslaw tossed in Lina’s secret sweet and spicy sauce.
Lina’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich has already been recognized by Flavor & The Menu Magazine as No. 15 in its “Best of Flavor 125 Menu Ideas.”

It really provides the best option and value proposition for any food explorer who’s looking for generous portions, layers of flavor and a truly memorable dining experience.”
