Plus innovation at Clean Juice, Fields Good Chicken, Freebirds World Burrito, Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh, Gong Cha, Jolene’s, Miller’s Ale House, Piada Italian Street Food, Quiznos, Tacodeli, Topgolf, Velvet Taco, Vitality Bowls and Wings & Rings

This week it’s Jack in the Box’s turn to test a plant-based burger, and it’s doing it in Phoenix, it’s Fields Good Chicken’s turn to launch a fried chicken sandwich, but just in one location so far, and it’s Hot Dog on a Stick’s turn to coat its food in Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

Buffalo Wings & Rings has changed its name — it dropped the “Buffalo” — and added several items with beer cheese.  

Speaking of cheese, IHOP has a line of new melts and Piada Italian Street Food and Miller’s Ale House both have new mac & cheese.

Freebirds World Burrito is offering guests prime rib this season, and Quiznos has a bison Reuben.

Clean Juice sells sandwiches now.

Jolene’s, the virtual brand of Lucky Dog Restaurants, has Korean chicken wings, Vitality Bowls has a pumpkin bowl and Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh has new seasoned fries.

Tacodeli has a spicy taco called El Luchador, Gong Cha, a global bubble tea concept, has a brown sugar matcha latte on the menu, Topgolf has reworked its burger and Velvet Taco’s Weekly Taco Feature is a riff on a chicken Caesar salad.
