    I have likely eaten $9000 worth of Stouffer's lasagna over my lifetime.

    Man I miss Quaker. I used to get about $80 of wings when I ordered. Wings for days and so many tasty sauces!

    Bad Food Thread, I'm about to walk to the Lunch District because it is a lovely day outside. Do I want a beer and a slice of pizza or a beer and a french dip sandwich? I am currently torn.

    RIP Jeff, he died doing what he loved: eating (and sleeping in) a giant meat bed.

    There's no wrong choices here.

    Dominos pizza released an engagement ring worth more than $9000

    I don't think I will ever eat $9000 worth of any food in my lifetime though

    I'll probably get through over $9000 in steaks in my lifetime, probably pizza too. Hell I'm probably pretty close on both. Figure $12 a steak/pizza, twice a month is about 32 years to get to $9000.

    I'm thinking the chippies look like the most appetizing part of that meal.
    The beer looks flat, the sandwich looks excessively dry but those chippies look great. Does that make me weird?

    My understanding is that the relatively recent cup of fries development is to give fewer fries for the same charge.
    I hope that's just me being cynical and believing bad info, but it's what I heard. One of those restaurant tricks to make it seem like there's more than there is.

    I kind of prefer a small serving of fries. I love and cherish them individually, but most places serve way too many. I feel bad leaving a big pile of fries on the plate, even though I feel like I ate a bunch of them.

    God, I want all the fries. I'll forgive a smaller main if it comes with enough carbs for me to fill up on them after. I could literally buy a whole bag of frozen fries with a fraction of what I just paid for my meal, don't you shortchange me.

    No no this is 100% true.

    I was in a food planning meeting with a pub owner and this is exactly why they implemented it

    Is the idea that people are more likely to buy dessert? 'Cause I can't imagine saving a handful of fries costs that much in the grand scheme of things.

    Give me every potato

    I'm afraid what you heard me say was, bring me lots of fried potatoes...

    But what I actually said was bring me every potato.

    I kind of think most restaurant portion sizes are too big to begin with but I doubt very much that the reduction in size comes with a lower price

    anyway that sandwich looks really good, it's fine if it's a little dry, that's what the jus is for

    Not enough beverage, imho.

    More beverage.

    If I'm gonna eat a sandwich I need a beverage to gulp because I always eat sandwiches too fast and my peristalsis can't keep up and I get hiccups.

    It is a 13% ABV strong ale. Please do not gulp Coop DNR, it will get you into fights with the police.

    Went to a Village Inn and got a pick 4 build your own breakfast combo. Got scrambled eggs, sausage links, country potatoes, and toast. The plate was 90% potatoes. A heap of potatoes, should have gotten bacon instead.

    Give me big thick chippies that are salty, crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle. Then I shall dip them in remoulade or garlic sauce or possibly ketchup and I shall enjoy them immensly.

    Thin cut fries like shoestring fries need not apply. They shall be rejected as the massproduced heresy that they are.

    The Village Inn literally around the corner from me closed. That build your own 4 was great on weekend mornings when I was feeling under the weather. Or lazy. Ok, when I was feeling lazy.

    Point is, it's gone! There's a Denny's across the way, but meh. Who prefers to go to Denny's?

    I've never even heard of Village Inn before now (aside from a pizza place with the same name) so, me. I prefer Denny's.

    John Kruk once did 3 grand slams in a single day. That plaque hangs in an Anaheim Denny's to this day

    And the food is fine, not as gimmicky as Denny's, but fine

    went to the slightly higher-scale brunch place and the food was definitely worse than if I had just gone to waffle house

    Thank you! That's the word that never clicked for me! It's gimmicky, I never liked how gimmicky Denny's (and a few other places) is (are)
