Spring is upon us, and that means it’s time for seasonal menu revamps, which you can see in the lengthy list of new menu items at True Food Kitchen. Also, Smokey Bones is rolling out Sunday brunch, TGI Fridays has a bunch of new over-the-top burgers, and there are seasonal specials from Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar, BD’s Mongolian Grill, Black Angus Steakhouse, Genghis Grill, and Rock & Brews.

Blimpie has what it calls “pizza subs,” Culver’s has burgers and chicken sandwiches with barbecue sauce, and Charleys Philly Steaks has made its Old School Cheesesteak, previously a limited-time offer, a permanent menu addition. Ditto Jet’s Pizza and its BLT Pizza.

Native Foods has a new Philly cheesesteak sandwich, but since it’s a vegan restaurant it doesn’t contain steak or cheese. 

Next Level Burger, another vegan concept, has a banana shake that’s non-dairy but does have real banana.

Smoothie King sells açaí and pitaya (aka dragon fruit) bowls now, and Elevation Burger has cookies.

Convenience store chain Rutter’s has rolled out the first of a series of LTOs in what it calls its “Inspired Food Menu,” Flat Top Grill has a poke burrito, and Garbanzo has pesto hummus.

Everytable and Fazoli’s both have new sandwiches that are permanent additions to the menu.

Cinnabon, Dutch Bros, and Gong Cha have drink LTOs, and Rock & Brews has a s’mores dip, among other items.

Scooter’s Coffee has a new energy drink, and Sajj Mediterranean has new lemonades and a tamarind drink that’s kind of like a lemonade.

Qdoba has a burrito LTO to celebrate the fact that it’s hosting an eating competition, and Moe’s Southwest Grill has new burrito builds that acknowledge its customers’ popular menu hacks.

Orange Leaf has some seasonal toppings for its frozen yogurt, Nothing Bundt Cakes is baking with blueberries, and Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream has special flavors for April

Water Grill has seared halibut, 

Pokeworks has a new noodle bowl, and Velvet Taco’s Weekly Taco Feature is based on a Monte Cristo.
