haha, ugh... the horrible memories of being stuck and somewhat drunk while disgustingly full at 4am are being dredged up imo...

I think the food has gotten better over the past 5 years - I can only really speak to Commerce and The Bike (don't really go to Hustler/HP etc. all that much) - but if you stay away from the Western/American offerings, their Asian food has always been pretty solid. Think "the kind of food you'd get at a mediocre/average Asian restaurant".

But I don't play/eat at casinos as much anymore, so my views could be suffering from sample size.

And knowing the menu and the wait staff after a while, you could make some awesome customized meals.
Cheeseburger quesadilla ftw. nom nom.
lol awesome

Yeah, I put about 20 lbs on during that year and a half working the graveyard shift. My diet pretty much consisted of one large meal a day at around 2am.
Congrats on not being dead yet!

I liked it. I remember their tasty rings. However, a little pricey.

I have a Fuddruckers that's closer and who I like better.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

i remember loving fuddruckers because they had a free cheese pump, that i'd drown my fries in, but for some reason, i disregard almost everything i loved as a kid.

mostly due to hitting a long john silvers, and finding it truly disgusting.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

If I could somehow get wendy's thick cut smoked bacon on everything, I would. I haven't had much mcdonalds bacon, but I remember it being of the super-thin microwave variety. Has it changed?

This actually sounds kinda nasty, like some weird fetish gimmick.... "cheese pump".... say it over and over again sounds worse and worse

Was the cheese any good? Or was it the nasty sh*t they put on nachos at the ballpark?

The Heart Attack Grill. Only in America.

I'm not sure if I respect the owner's honesty or I think he couldn't have come off any worse in the interview.

Wow. This feels like the moral equivalent of opening a bar where recovering alcoholics drink free.

I love how the owner says that even with the death of their spokesman, it would be immoral to stop now since they have blood on their hands.

Back to my beefy crunch burrito.

lol, I worked at McD's as a teen. We had an ex-con working with us and all he could figure out was how to make fajitas. He'd make like 40 of them. And NO ONE ever ordered fajitas.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

The McD's pizzas were damn good. Cheap too. I'd always get them in that Barbary Coast basement one in LV back in the 90's.

But they were never as thick as in that picture.

I was going to mock you for being years late, but now that people are actually dying and the owner just doesn't care, it's more awesome.
