Best “Fast” Food
« on: October 08, 2022, 02:01:56 PM »
What are your favorite “fast” food stops. I’m including sub shops and am pretty loose with my definition of it. I’m mainly thinking of if you’re in a road trip and need somewhere to stop for lunch, where are you going?

By far the best to me is Chick Fil A.

Chipotle, Penn Station, Jersey Mike’s, A&W are all up there for me.

What got me thinking of this is one of the guys in our group chat just said that Dave’s Hot Chicken is better than Chick Fil A. That’s crazy talk to me. I wouldn’t go to Dave’s even if there was no such thing as Chick Fil A. Their menu stinks (do you want tenders or tenders on a bun? Do you want bad spices?), and it’s crazy overpriced.

I’m big into (perceived) good deals & convince.

McD’s app comes through occasionally, but I usually stick to breakfast there. If I’m doing burgers & fries, lean toward Freddy’s — double burger in a lettuce wrap & fries.

The $5 BOX from Taco Bell is a good deal.. Crunchwrap supreme, hard shell taco (add onion), nachos & cheese and a pop.

Chick fil a is solid. Big lines at time, so I order curbside via the app - works great!

Culver's mushroom-swiss is my default go to fast food while traveling.

Gold standard is Raising Canes and Noodles and Company.

Can get down with Chipotle,  Chic Fil A and Culver's.

Fallback if no good fast food is available is Mickey Ds. Usually breakfast or quarter pounder and fries.

Also,  I'm a sucker for trashy American Chinese food. Panda, LeAnn Chins, weird kiosks in mall food courts, love em all

I don't know if buffets meet the definition of fast food but I do like the Golden Coral. If there isn't one in your area they serve just about everything. The one near me has fried, roasted or barbecue chicken, NY strip or ribeye steaks, all sorts of sea food and any side dish you can think of; and then there are all sorts of deserts. A nice change from the burger/chicken/deli joints. Oh yeah, its all you can eat.

Finally, someone asks the most important question! I think of the items people mentioned as appetizers before dessert.
This team is fabulously flawed and makes up for it with system, determination, coaching, energy, and all sorts of intangibles that make the whole much greater than the sum of the parts.

In no particular order:

1) Culvers -- Great products, diverse menu and the burgers are really good. Onion rings are a little blah but overall good.
2) Portillios -- Best hot dog ever!
3) Panera -- Especially in the morning. Also like Panera while traveling in the south as we could eat outside with the dog.
4) Burger King -- Still think a Whopper, no cheese is the best hamburger this side of Culvers.

And the worst....

A) Arby's -- Paper thin, industrial grade beef. Nice thought but yuck.
B) Real Chili -- I want my grease the old fashioned way -- in explosives or down the drain!

Of all the fried chicken sammiches I've tried, Popeyes is still the best.

Zaxby's a regional (but pretty large in the SE part of the country) fried chicken chain has really good tenders.

Both are better than Chik-fil-A for those products IMHO. Plus, sometimes a person wants some fried chicken on Sunday!

Raising Cane's
Culvers
Portillos

Honorable Mention:
In-N-Out


Worst:

Panda Express
Taco Bell
Burger King (for the creepy mascot alone)


Also, I hate the word "Sammiches". Is it that hard to say "sandwich" properly? 
Have some patience, FFS.
