meh, Arby's kinda jumped the shark for me 8 years ago or so... gone downhill, but maybe it's just the local joints.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I went to BK drive thru the other day and ordered a small fry, drink, chicken crisp sandwich. The lady gives me my food and walks away. The bag weighed a ton so I looked in and saw a lot more food than I ordered so I sped off. Am I a douche?

What was in the bag? Original chicken sandwich meal with bacon and an extra side of 10 pc chicken fries.

Cold cuts on a bun with a cheese slice. A 3 year old could put one of those together. I'm really amazed anyone would spend money there.

I haven't been to BK in years but their chicken sandwiches were awful. Have they gotten better?

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I haven't heard anyone mention Arby's so.. (guess it hit while I was posting lol)

I usually wait to get coupons from the mailers (or get them here: http://dealspl.us/arbys-coupons/184118p). Then I'll get the $5 mix-n-match.. you can choose between the Philly Beef or French Dip. I like the Philly Beef more. Their market fresh subs are pretty good, too (I usually get the Turkey Bacon Club). their jamocha shakes.

ldo hint: Google "Any fast food place" coupons You do have to look around to get the good ones.



** Has anyone watched Fathead? It's like a Super Size Me diss. Much better than SSM imo.

Surprised nobody mentioned Dairy Queen yet. Their blizzards are awesome and the burgers aren't bad. I love the ice cream cakes they sell as well.

Canadians always mention Harvey's itt, but I think Harvey's gives you the worst of both worlds. You don't get a greasy fast food burger, but you don't get a good real burger either. Their fries and onion rings and pretty good though.

Swiss Chalet is the nuts, but isn't really fast food.

I doubt even Henry has the stones to criticize anyone else's palate wrt food. He's well aware that his dietary positions are powerfully un-baller, so he minimizes their importance and moves on.

ahh, DQ was one I forgot to mention in the OP. As a kid/teenager we would always go to the beach right next to a Dairy Queen so I'll forever associate it with summer/the beach. Haven't been in a few years but it would just feel wrong to go at any other time of year. Very good burgers, very bad chicken sandwiches IIRC.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

WRT Wendy's people who are big fans of the Spicy Chicken Sandwich should give the Spicy Chicken go Wrap a try. I am a big fan of that + spicy nuggets + fries.

WRT Arbys I just went to one a couple weeks ago and they had pumps of honey mustard and some spicy habanero sauce by the pumps of ketchup, horsey and Arbys sauce. I was very impressed but they've fallen into the trap of sending me good coupons and now I'll never go and pay full price.

I know LOL at me for using fast food coupons. It's not like I have a hrad time affording fancy restaurants even there's just some triumphant feeling I get ringing up 2 for 4$ Arby's chicken sandwiches or subs

Living around the country has taught me that the Dairy Queen menu varies quite widely across different regions. Like I knew they had an expanded 'Texas-only' menu but in CA, for example, they don't (that I've seen) even have burgers, just soft-serve and a deep fryer.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Dairy Queen's chili dogs are vastly superior to Sonic's imo. Real cheese, and lots more "meat" in the chili. Thicker dog. Sonic puts liquid cheese and thin greasy chili liquid on there.

I prefer Whataburger to Culver's because of the superior service and atmosphere. Culver places seem stuffy and uptight to me. But Culver's burgers are also great, no doubt. I need to try the cheese curds.

Truer words never spoken. I've always touted Taco Cabana in these fast food threads. Seems like they could take over the country if they tried, but they stay in Texas mostly.

For example, the Eggs Mexicana breakfast plate is a wonder to behold: 3 strips of bacon, thick queso over spicy eggs, refried beans, and 2 tortillas. Around $3.50 I think.

1 lb. fajita family dinners also tremendous and inexpensive. on and on.

Roberto's Tacos.. is that place still around? A friend of mine swears by it, but I never cared for their food. It was inexpensive and you got plenty for what you paid.
