The queso crunchy taco was the worst of the queso options I tried. Try adding queso to a chicken soft taco or your favorite item instead.

BK rodeo king had the makings of an excellent burger. Lots of bacon and 5 onion rings. Needed extra bbq sauce.
Much better than the bacon king.
Your results may differ.

Had my first shake shack today. Double shack burger and fries. $11 with no drink and worth every damn penny. Beats the breaks off 5 guys and smash burger.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

It's a little nitty and takes about 4-5 minutes to complete but the free chicken sandwich offer on every single chick fila receipt is pretty clutch. You can mindlessly fill out a survey and get a free sandwich to save when you really wanna go cheap. Super nitty as mentioned but free is free right?

Being free makes everything taste better. The only thing better is to win it in a bet, then it's downright incredible.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Popeye's only lets you do a survey receipt deal once every 30 days. I would guess that CFA puts a similar limit on theirs. Also I don't think my CFA has ever even had a survey receipt, might have to go get a chicken biscuit this morning for science.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Had the triple melt burrito ($1!) at taco bell yesterday. It's pretty much a smaller version of the fritos burritos with no fritos and more nacho cheese.

Speaking of frito burritos, I always get a one or two, and I don't even like them that much. They're pretty much the best FF value in existence, only a hot n ready at little caesars rivals the cost per calories. That being said, they would be way better if they ditched the fritos (adds nothing but weird texture) and used cheddar instead of nacho cheese.

In the past couple months they've also randomly offered free chicken minis. I've never seen any advertising about this so no idea what they're up to.
Sigh, I so miss the CFA chicken biscuit (moved to Canada ldo). Add a little cheese and that thing is just a mouthful of awesome!

sadly, I have been expecting to hear that sort of report once I had realized their test demographic was an area not noted for good queso...

I go out of town for a week, come back and swing in to get one of these GJBCs.... And the Wendy's location is closed down. Stripped and surrounded by cyclone fence.

WTF kind of idiot can't make a Wendy's profitable?

That's crazy talk. I have a small sample size of 1 obv, but it completely changed my mind on crinkle cuts. Sooooo crispy and still some fluffy potato inside. Perfectly salted. A+ experience.
