Jen Goodhand-Wyatt, 37, took her autistic son, Oscar, to a TGI Fridays restaurant in Coventry, England, after a visit to a cardiologist.

She explained to staff that her son had autism, and after Oscar picked a Star Wars-themed table, Jen joked to staff that he was a “Star Wars-loving superhero,” the Mirror reported.

A waitress came to the table and said to Oscar: “I understand you’re a superhero. Here’s your menu.” But Oscar was upset because his cardiologist had told him he couldn’t do karate due to the condition of his heart, Jen wrote in her Facebook post. Oscar felt like he couldn’t be a superhero.

After dinner arrived, another waiter came over and gave Oscar two balloon figurines. The waiter later offered to pay for some dessert for Oscar, which he happily accepted.

“When he served it I asked why,” Jen wrote. “‘Because he’s a superhero!’ was his reply.”

The staff took the dessert’s cost off the bill, labeling it a “superhero” discount.

“Thanks to TGI, and the response it has had, he’s gone away to school feeling like a real superhero,” Jen told the Mirror. “It just goes to show that anyone can be anything they want, and the kindness of others goes a long way.”

TGI Fridays has since offered Jen some coupons, but she requested the company instead donate to the Heart Link Children’s Charity, which supported Oscar when he was born.

If you love the TGI Fridays endless apps deal, or if you simply haven’t been able to catch it in time before it’s over, you’ll be happy to know that the deal is back for good! Endless apps at TGI Fridays are now available all day, every day.

TGI Fridays has announced via a PR Newswire that guests can come in and order any of the most popular appetizers for $10 per person, and keep getting free refills for their entire stay! These popular app options include mozzarella sticks, loaded potato skins, BBQ chicken flatbread, pot stickers, boneless buffalo wings, and meatballs and fried pickles (which are new to the menu).

The endless apps launch is effective immediately in restaurants nationwide, and we’re betting once everyone gets wind of this, they’ll be rushing to their nearest TGI Fridays location.

“Endless Apps have become a pop culture phenomenon, as evidenced by the outcry we heard every time the limited time offer expired,” said TGI Fridays’ CEO. “We want our guests to have a great time every time they visit us, so we’re giving the people what they want — Endless Apps at any time. It’s just one more way we’re making sure ‘In Here, It’s Always Friday.'”

While the endless Endless Apps deal is huge news, there’s even more! The restaurant will also be offering seven new burgers on its menu: two new specialty cheeseburgers; a BBQ’n Burger, with classic and white barbecue sauces; a Buffalo Wingman’s Burger, with a skewer of buffalo wings; a Jack Daniel’s Burger; a turkey burger, and a vegetarian black bean and avocado burger.

So, there you have it. You can get anything you need from this American restaurant bar, and now with plenty of burger options and endless apps for the table.

“TGI Fridays provides the ultimate social bar vibe where our guests can unwind and reconnect over an array of Endless appetizers or one of our new all-natural, custom-cooked burgers, ” said one TGI Fridays spokesperson. “And, as always, they can wash it down with an ice-cold craft beer or a handcrafted cocktail, like our new Ultimate Boba Long Island Iced Tea, mixed by the best bartenders in the business.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a burger and some wings right about now.
