Fast Food Gourmet

Nay -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:21:14 AM

A thread to discuss fast food. Are you a McRib fan? Is it true that Monster Tacos are actually vegetarian? How come In and Out Burgers don't bust out of California?

Please do not bring up Fast Food Nation. We all know that fast food is gross, but some of us choose to remain somewhat ignorant on the subject.

Why? Fuck you, that's why.

So does anyone remember the old style McDonald apple pies? They were deLISH. Nowadays, they're dry, chewy and kind of gross. Well, I just found something that is almost as good as the O.G. McD's apple pies... the apple turnover at Arby's. Man, I am telling you, those things are good.

And to answer one of my own questions in the header, yes, I am a closet McRib fan. I finally tried one the last time they had them and it was so disgustingly good, I couldn't believe it.

The Carl's Jr. Famous Star is a ridiculously good hamburger for the price.

There's no In and Out here, and I feel deprived. devillishious wrote a genius review of it in the Food, Glorious Food thread.

The two closest restaurants to our house are Popeye's and KFC. We've never been to the KFC bcause the chicken is so much better at Popeye's, but that means I never get to have the deep-fried potato wedges at KFC, which are sublime.

Why? Fuck you, that's why.

Has anyone tried FatBurger? They have one in Vegas, right on the strip and I make sure to hit it every time I visit. Get this. You can get a fried egg on your burger if you like. That is pure genius.

Welcome to the Entropy Bar. May I take your order?

I drove to the Netherlands because my kids wanted KFC. Now they want to cross the pond so that they can have Krispy Kreme donuts.

Krispy Kreme is a big waste of time and calories.

We bloviate on a whole lot of different subjects. We might as well bloviate on this.

Krispy Kreme just opened a new store right near Lowe's Home Improvement, where DH or I end up having to go to practically every weekend. I'm worried.

When Krispy Kreme came to New York, some waggish reporter described them as being little round sponges, soaked in grease, and then drowned in sugar.

Nay, it is standard to have a fried egg on a hamburger here.

A burger with the lot means mince hamburger pattie with melted cheese, beetroot, bacon, egg, lettuce, tomato and sauce sometimes even pineapple depending on the shop.

I was a total sucker for Waffle House hashbrowns when I was in the States. mmmmmm hashbrowns.

palmist -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:41:32 AM -- 10 of 3080

She. And she was wrong, wrong, wrong. Krispy Kremes are nature's perfect food.

Nay -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:41:41 AM -- 11 of 3080
Why? Fuck you, that's why.

I know that this is stupid, but even though I like Krispy Kremes alright, I sort of like Dunkin Donuts better because at least they have actual, real life bakers.

palmist -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:43:09 AM -- 12 of 3080

And see, Dunkin Donuts are a whole big mouthful of pasty dough, as far as I'm concerned.

edit: And Nay, KK has real bakers too. They wear big poufy hats. I've seen them.

Oh really? I thought their whole thing was that it was all automated. I never really paid attention though.

I looooove Dunkin Donuts. It's the one true doughnut, in my opinion. Of course, that could be nostalgia talking, but happiness is Dunkies coffee (regulah) and a shorty box of Munchkins, preferably consumed in the car on the way to somewhere like Cape Cod.

palmist -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:53:50 AM -- 15 of 3080

Well, they have conveyer belts and all, but the bakers mix up the dough, run the machines, and do the finishing of the doughnuts.

palmist -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:55:27 AM -- 16 of 3080

Do you ever get hot DD? See, hot KK is what God has with his coffee.

Oh, I know that. Hot KKs are fabulous. But Dunkin Donuts have a special place in my taste memory that KK, new to the scene (for me), doesn't merit yet.

palmist -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 12:58:41 AM -- 18 of 3080

I'll let you have that one, Nancy. My sisters are nostalgic for (horrors!) Potato Buds.

If I wanted to share your point of view I'd sit on your lap.

Ypu haven't lived until you've had a Jimmy Mack's onion ring loaf.

They take onion rings, already fried, cram them into a loaf pan ... yes a full size bread loaf pan, bake them and then flip that bad boy right over in the center of your plate.

If you really want to live on the edge you can add gravey, melted cheese and/or chili on top.

Nay -- Tuesday, May 06, 2003 -- 01:21:36 AM -- 20 of 3080
Why? Fuck you, that's why.

I wish a place in town made that stuff... what is it called? French fries covered in cheese curds and gravy. Man, that just sounds good.
