Bennigan’s World Famous Monte Cristo

Legendary brand offers free world-famous sandwiches Sept. 17

Dallas, TX  (  Bennigan’s is honoring its iconic sandwich, the World Famous Monte Cristo, with an epic offer on National Monte Cristo Day. The 42-year-old brand known across the globe for its chef-driven American fare and friendly Irish hospitality, is celebrating the national holiday as only the Irish can.

On Monday, Sept. 17, the iconic brand is commemorating the legendary holiday by inviting guests to enjoy a FREE World Famous Monte Cristo with the purchase of an entrée of equal or greater value (participating locations only).

That’s right. As if you needed another reason to head to Bennigan’s, this is your chance to enjoy one of the world’s greatest sandwiches for free!

Bennigan’s World Famous Monte Cristo starts with honey wheat bread layered with tender ham, roasted turkey and Swiss and American cheeses. It’s then batter-dipped, gently fried and coated with powdered sugar, and served with red raspberry preserves for dipping.

“Everyone remembers their first mouthwatering bite of our World Famous Monte Cristo and no one serves a Monte Cristo as Legendary as Bennigan’s, which is why we take National Monte Cristo Day so seriously,” said Legendary Restaurant Brands Chairman and CEO Paul Mangiamele. “The popularity of our World Famous Monte Cristo is one of the ingredients that differentiates us as a Legendary brand. We celebrate National Monte Cristo Day and Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day on Sept. 17 so it’s fitting that we have the perfect holiday to continue to build more memories for generations to come.”
