WASHINGTON (SBG) — TGI Friday's is launching a new burger, incorporating one of its most popular appetizers.

It's called the "Loaded Cheese Fry Burger," and it's decadent. It's pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a burger topped with loaded bacon cheese fries.

But, that's not all.

In addition to the cheesy potato topping, the restaurant chain added queso on top of that.

And just in case that's not enough to interest you, a single loaded potato skin is added to the very top of the sandwich. You know, just in case you were craving that extra splash of grease.

A skewer is run down the center of the burger in an attempt to hold the whole thing together.

Prices vary from location to location, but one thing remains the same. TGI Friday's website lists the burger at 1,450 calories.
