Review: If you enjoy the appetizers at T.G.I. Friday's restaurants, you'll like the company's new frozen line of the same popular dishes. The honey BBQ wings and the mozzarella sticks taste the same as what a server brings to your table when you dine in. Paying nearly $4 for six cheese sticks and seven wings seems a little steep, but those who adore T.G.I. Friday's probably won't mind. The company also has frozen its potato skins as well as some of its signature dips.
