Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Hardee's burgers are quite good imo, seems weird to not like them if you're a fast food fan. They aren't Five Guys but they definitely blow anything from McD's/BK out of the water.

I'm gonna guess here....you know those pages of coupons that come with the newspaper or in junk mail? My mom used to magnet those to the fridge if she intended to use them.

Went to 5 Guys for the first time in about 4 months.

Place my standard little cheeseburger and regular Cajun fries order. It came to 0 dollars because the computer system is down.

Free lunch for the mother****ing win.

Yes, but it's just not the same. I'll try the Daves hot and juicy+bacon tho...tried the baconator and it just isn't the same. That bacon deluxe really was perfection.

Had FF last night and didn't notice any weird taste, but they did mess up my order so i put my own sweet baby ray's on it, so maybe it covered the weird.

I knew my Taco Bell was elite. If they've screwed a special order, it's few and far between. Also, I rarely order straight from the menu so I do put them through their paces.

I just want a beef burrito. No beans. No rice. Beef.

I'm not against beans and usually put them in my own taco meat. The way they make burritos though, you get huge lumps of each ingredient. I'm not a fan of getting halfway through my burrito to discover that beans is all that remains.

Since the store I stop at is an hour from my house, I often don't want lettuce or tomato since they don't reheat well in the microwave.

I've ordered a few different ways. After reviewing the menu, it looks like my best bet will be:

1/2 lb. combo burrito, no beans

First real food I ever had at DQ was a few months ago and found it above average. Chicken sandwich and fries were very good...and the food was piping hot!!

Also, do all the DQ's use those ketchup bottle shaped ketchup packets? I had never seen one before and loved it.

Burrito Ingredient Distribution Fail (BIDF) is commonplace even at elite burrito establishments. opening your burrito for manual redistribution or smooshing it around (like if you have a mission-style burrito wrapped in load-bearing foil) is a standard workaround.

unless you're the kind of person who thinks, "mmm, a bit of rice! i hope my next bite is all sour cream!". if you are, kindly stay the **** away from my burritos kthx.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

when used *sparingly*, rice adds some nice body and texture to a burrito.

i agree that almost no one gets this right, so i generally skip the rice.

this pisses me off so much when i go to Chipotle, it isn't that difficult to spread everything out i don't want to get mouthfuls of sour cream at one end and then meat only at the other end jfc

How can u not like those? Doubles as a squirter and a dipper, and about 3 times as much as the standard tear open packets.

Been on a cfa binge lately, and their service level is so elite for a ff place, like bringing you refills at your table, bringing you your ice cream after you eat your food , etc.

Actually just complained about something and they sent me certificates for 2 free sandwiches. They almost seem to good frm a profit perspective.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

oh man i came to this thread to post about the chipotle I had tonight. it was STUPENDOUS! burrito bowl shredded beef. tons of rice, which is much better in a bowl because you can eat around it. the hot sauce tastes pretty decent too.

i almost didn't get to eat the bowl, though. there was a woman in line who had a huge order remade because at the last second she noticed there was a few pieces of shredded CHEESE on the counter and she threw a fit and made them remake it causing the staff to get a little sad and her apologizing a bunch of times and sayign stuff like, "this is one of the reasons i come to chipotle, because I know it's always clean!" and "this isn't my fault, im sorry but there's nothing i can do."

if they had a drivethrough they'd make a ton more $$.

I'm not upset they have spicy food...but I guess the commentariat is right, the name of the franchise ldo implies "everything will be spicy!"

Went to rallys last night for the first time in like 12 years, wasn't disapoint. Had the big buford and just a standard order of fries, was pretty darn good. I saw on the menu that they have chili cheese and all sorts of loaded fry options which sound pretty awesome, just couldn't do it logistically.

if you get the bowl the key is getting it to go so you get a lid and then shake it up so the ingredients are distributed evenly
