    Five Guys is totally okay but way overhyped and also way too expensive for the quality and quantity of food

    I am eating a quiznos sandwich right now.

    I am still fucking haunted by the time Tonkka talked about a mythical Quiznos but with nachos instead of sandwiches

    I literally day dream about opening a fast food custom nachos restaurant

    Freebirds has these and I have to imagine some other burrito places do too. Not Chipotle though.

    I don't understand the love Five Guys gets. I suppose it's okay if you're really hungry and don't need to touch anything for an hour.

    In N' Out remains superior.

    I've never eaten In N' Out, but I hear their fries are terrible

    Five Guys has great fries, in ludicrious portions

    Squishy fries are not good fries.

    I fucking love squishy fries

    if you want crispy potato just have some chips

    y'know, I don't think I've ever had one of their burgs

    always go with the bbq sandwich

    cookout is great though, the one here's a little far from where I live but it's a choice hangout spot with friends

    We used to have like a local chain , like not sure if actual chain beyond here, but they had 3 locations for the longest time.

    Burger Baron

    They were so good, and the last one closed a few years ago and I miss them

    Lottaburger or Blake's is a regional burger place here.
    It's more of a 50s style flat iron you would see in a greasy spoon or such.
    They make the bomb of breakfast burritos since I would have t go to the questionable parts of town to get better ones.
    THey have that fry cut thing is how they do their fries

  • RMS OceanicRMS Oceanic Registered User regular
    Last time I was in the states I tried several different kinds of burgs.

    The single best tasting one was Johnny Rockets, but to feed five of us was $90.

    Then I ate at Five Guys. Burg was nice, but $12 a pop is still :/

    In 'n' Out was only slightly less awesome, and to feed five of us was $35.

    So my judgement call is that In 'n' Out is the best value for money.

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    Really, Johnny Rockets?

    I've been there a few times and they just opened one in town, but I've never found their burgers particularly impressive

    Their shakes are pretty good though

    The one thing I miss ( tho my waistline probably doesn't)

    Is Burger Baron's fries, were SOOOOO good, and came in one size, an entire brown bag full.

    Well part of it is we all got fancy burgs with fried eggs and stuff on them.

    We don't have any of the smaller/local fast food places around here, not a one.

    Its all big chains or bust.

    There's one Five Guys (which I think is pretty overrated and overpriced) but that doesn't seem like the same thing.

    We have a local chain called Zip's.

    They make glorious greasy monstrosities and will sell you a theater popcorn bucket full of waffle cut fries.

    My favorite "bad" food place is a local place called Belly Buster's

    There's only one, and it's been here for something like 40 years, despite it being a little hole-in-the-wall type place

    I typically get a steak and cheese, all the way/no onions, with a large order of fries

    A large order of fries from this place is literally a full doggie bag of steak fries

    Recently I decided to try their burger and now I'll be forever split on what to get when I go there, because their hamburgers are not round, they make it in the shape of a sub and serve it on a sub roll and it is fucking delicious

    The Habit is a better and cheaper fast food burger than in n out.

    There's a The Habit near my work that has a drive through. You can't get through that thing and eat within an hour at lunch time, but at off hours The Habit is my drive through of choice.

    When it comes to making bad food choices though, my favorite is Taco Bell. I know its garbage, but its comforting garbage.

    Belly Buster's makes me think of Alan Wake.

    That one sold hotdogs though.

  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    This place also sells hot dogs

    If I had gotten far enough into Alan Wake I would have probably flipped my shit seeing that, though I guess it's a pretty good generic name for an eatery

    Best burger I've had in my life was years ago at this Mediterranean joint in Seattle called Olive You. Googling it, they seem to have shut down.

    The gas station guy in the first level, Stucky, rants about it after he gets possessed.

    I'm not sure it appears in the town level at some point or not. Stucky says they make the best hot dogs in the state.

    You think designing the Hamburgler was cheap? It took months of R&D work and Focus Groups.

    Those think tanks and marketing firms aren't paid in fries son.

    Also, porn stars don't work cheap.

    So I brought it back.

    I was gonna wait longer to see if someone else would make a new one, but then I found that article.

    I was just about to make a new thread when I saw this one. Good work, @turtleant. Junk food must live on!

    Our town is about to get a Red Robin, and a Chic-Fil-A' is opening up right next to it.

    I'm standing by not eating at Chic-Fil-A, but I do find it funny.. there's a CFA in the State Farm South campus, and there used to be one in Watterson Towers, so I guess I just wasn't privileged enough to eat it before.

    if you're at home, and the urge for fast food strikes

    for how long will you be willing to drive to satisfy your particular craving

    There is a chippy at the top of my street, and a McDonalds at the bottom of the next one over.

    So that's breakfast and dinner sorted, Egg and Sausage McMuffins being my McVice of choice.

    McNuggets are the worst chicken. Except for maybe Burger King's nuggets which taste like McNuggets that fell off the back of a truck.

    I don't get the hate for Chic-Fil-A food based on its politics. I'm pretty sure you will find that people who support the same kind of things also work at McDonalds and every other business. Besides, they are the only place i can order chicken nuggets that actually look like they were cut from pieces of chicken, not a processed lump of chicken.

    On Saturday I had a mac and cheese burger

    As in, a burger with mac and cheese on it

    I did not know such a thing was possible

    I also had a camel burger yesterday, as a continuation of Rhesus Eats the Animal Kingdon. It was OK, but kinda dry (which makes sense because the fat is almost all in the hump)
