Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Two places I haven't seen mentioned yet:

All over the Hawaiian Islands:



Their Fried Chicken and Chili dish is awesome. The prices are good too.

The other place which is in Hawaii, California and I think Vegas:



The combo plates can feed a family!

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

That reminds me, I stopped at a mcdonald's in France when I was there a couple years ago. Everything was MUCH better than at mcd's in the US. I'm pretty sure they use better ingredients/fry stuff in actual lard over there. And yes, they sell beer.

My post is dumb because I don't like Arby's?

This is exactly what I said, some cold cuts, a cheese slice (or maybe cheese whiz) on a bun. No veggies. Anyone could slap that together in 5 seconds

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

Thread Participants: what should I eat for dinner tonight? GF out of town, friend flaked on me tonight - pretty much perfect evening to go fast food option. Please help me choose (I never eat fast food so it's all pretty much new to me) - and I'll try anything for the most part - these are the fast food options that I know of near my home:

1) Carl's Jr
2) Wendy's
3) McDonald's
4) Jack in the Box
5) Popeye's
6) BK
7) Assorted LA area fast food chains, e.g. Fatburger/Del Taco - but I will stay away from them as it sort of seems against the spirit of the thread

Didn't you say you'd never been to Carl's Jr/Hardee's? Burgers and chicken strips there are very good by fast food standards.

I've only had it once.

I had a burger for lunch so perhaps I'll try the "Hand Breaded Chicken Wrappers"...

Or I just read ITT that the deli trio grilled sandwich at Jack in the Box is great as well...

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

AL,

Fatburger isn't really just LA area. Good option if you feel like having a fried egg on your burger tonight. After that i'd go for:

Popeye's: Spicy strips, mashed potatoes with cajun gravy
JITB: Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger
Carl's: IDK $6 burger or whatever the best burger there is these days. I used to really like the Western chicken when they had it ~10 years ago but haven't eaten there in forever.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I've been curious about the wrappers, but I kinda hate ranch. If you go with the plain chicken strips instead the creamy buffalo sauce is vvvg.

They have a solid honey mustard if you like it. Nicely tangy with some extra spices thrown in.

I don't think you know what cold cuts are but a key hint is the word cold.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

I have a friend whose cousin worked at an Arby's. He said the roast beef actually arrives at the restaurant in a gelatinous form. Surprised that with all the hubbub about Taco Bell's meat that this never made it to the media.

Re: New fast food discussion/review thread

There is nothing better in the fast food world than a spicy chicken sandwich from chik fil a. Unless five guys is considered fast food where a bacon burger is the most delectable food in a bun known to man. Wise posters will agree with me these are facts not opinions.

Wat? Arby's "famous" roast beef sandwiches are not cold cuts.
