Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

In drunken desperation I had a slice of the 7-11 "pizza" before. Was as God awful as you would expect, the worst frozen pizza I've had was infinitely better and that's not an exaggeration

7-11 had lots of decent stuff but the pizza is bad. Go with taquitos, hot dogs, cheeseburger bite, or even wings instead

Yea I like Little Caesars and for people who don't it's like 8 levels below that bad. If you made a pizza yourself and didn't cook it, it would taste better.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Guys, I saw this on 7-11's website:

"Our pizza is made with real French sourdough, fresh sauce and 100% whole milk mozzarella. It's the best pizza around!"

It's made with ingredients, it's got to be the best!

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I think I'd rather have 7/11 pizza over Subway pizza. Did Subway stop serving their pizza? They had pizza right?

I've never had either. 7/11 has decent hot dogs, the wings look edible but I've never attempted them.

If the wings are small and crispy, they're edible. When they're bigger, they are way too gristly and fatty. The taquitos are great, especially the steak and cheese and buff chicken.. The buff chicken rollers are also good. I am ashamed that I like any of those things.

You shouldn't be ashamed you like them. You should be ashamed you found out you like them. And even then, you only die once, might as well be from eating at 7-11.

The important part is that I feel shame. I will leave it up to the historians to decide how that shame is should be divvied up.

What's the go-to breakfast at Hardees/Carl's JR?

Breakfast sandwich combo + biscuit & gravy?

My friend had subway pizza in Vegas (wanna say the el cortez). Basic pepperoni. It wasn't amazing or anything but was certainly edible for 4 bucks or whatever it was.

I think the breakfast burger is great. Has tots (hashbrowns), bacon, cheese, and egg. Their breakfast biscuit sandwiches are whatever. I can imagine the burritos being pretty good but haven't tried.

Ten+ years ago the had "sunrise" sandwiches that were on English muffins, and they were fantastic.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Subway pizza (flatizza) was fine. It was (is?) basically their standard flatbread with a bunch of sandwich toppings. Only difference is that it has some fairly inoffensive pizza sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese. If you're expecting a pizza, it's not going to satisfy you. But if you're expecting a pizza-flavored sandwich, it's whatever.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I'm off to the Orange County fair today! Proposed menu of food I'm ordering over the day:

Lemonade, lemonade and more lemonade!
Funnel cake with strawberries
BBQ chicken
Blooming onion
Grilled Corn-on-the-cob
Ribeye steak sandwich
Hotdog from Pinks (an LA thing...)

Mmm, I can't wait.

Deep fried candy bars have to be a win.

I just don't understand the logic here. If you want pizza, aren't there slices generally available for $2 each that are way better than a Subway pizza?

It's like getting the hot dog at Five Guys - why bother.

Hot dogs are there for the same reason American is available at Chinese places. Sometimes there's one in the party that doesn't really care for burgers compared to hot dogs (especially kids).

I doubt they get much hot dog business from individual patrons.
