Menu Tracker: New items from Popeyes, Perkins, and Cracker Barrel

Plus innovation at bb.q Chicken, Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice, Lion’s Choice, 7-Eleven, Snooze, Taziki’s Mediterranean Café, Veggie Grill, Velvet Taco

Lent is fast approaching, and that means many restaurant chains are rolling out seafood options, including Velvet Taco, which has its annual Gator Gras as its Weekly Taco Feature this week, because alligator does technically count as seafood.

Then again, that taco is only available until next Tuesday, and Lent starts the day after.

But Popeyes is bringing back a couple of fish and shrimp items, Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers is reprising its fish sandwich, and 7-Eleven has a fried pollock sandwich available for $2 on Fridays.

South Korean fried chicken chain bb.q Chicken and Taziki’s Mediterranean Café are both testing spicy items, Perkins has a whole lineup of limited time offers, and Veggie Grill is bringing back its Sonoran Bowl.

Lion’s Choice has new chicken sandwiches, Jeremiah’s Italian Ice has some specials with hardening chocolate, and Cracker Barrel, via its virtual brand called Pancake Kitchen, is offering what it’s calling a Pancake Taco.
