A famous restaurant is being sued for millions of dollars over their "fraudulent" potato skins. TGI Friday's is in some hot water.

The brand is being sued by a woman from the Bronx. The case has been brought forward in Manhattan.

"A snacking stickler is suing TGI Fridays, claiming the restaurant chain’s potato skin snacks — bags of which are sold in stores and vending machines across the country — aren’t actually potato skins at all. Just a mishmash of 'potato flakes' or 'potato starch,'" reported Fox News

Troncoso says she never would have purchased the skins if she had known they weren't made of real potato skins. She bought the bag for $1.99.

“Troncoso alleges that the company is trying to cash in on the fact that most snackers see potato skins, which TGI Fridays offers as an appetizer in its eateries, as a nutritious option compared with standard convenience-store fare," according to Fox News.

At this time, TGI Friday's has not responded to requests for comments on the lawsuit. Many people were shocked that the lawsuit was for millions of dollars since the unsatisfied customer spent under $2.00.
