Bacon McDouble. It’s essentially a Bacon Quater Pounder (as it has two 1/8lbs patties) but for $2 (in most locations) and you can ask them to sub Mac sauce and get a bacon Big Mac missing only lettuce and the middle bun, for $2!
I don’t eat fast food (Panera if that counts) so if I’m absolutely starving I might get some McDonald’s fries. Although every once in a while I like a orange HI-C but hate that I have to go to Burger King for it now.
Actually now that I think about about about every 6 month to a year my boyfriend always wants White Castle when he’s drunk late at night (and I have to drive) so I’ll get a couple crispy chicken sandwich’s and I know it’s made fresh bc we wait 20ins for it. But that’s the only fast food I eat besides McDonald’s fries. Yeah I know probably the worst of the worst.
@Star2236 I’m no love expert but I think you’ll know he is the one if you can stand being in the same room with him 2-4 hours after you two have had your White Castle meals. That or you have a stuffy nose.
And a nomination for “worst”: Naked Chicken Tenders from Buffalo Wild Wings. Their formula calls for the tenders to be “grilled” on a frying surface, with salt and pepper applied regardless of the flavor of seasoning or sauce requested, and then the sauce or seasoning is supposed to be supplied separately for the customer to apply. Out of four to-go orders, zero had the sauce or seasoning either supplied with the tenders or already applied, and two orders had so much S&P applied as to render any other seasoning inconsequential. Their response to complaints about the misses has been underwhelming to the point of insult in at least half of the cases.
Even the drunken sports crowd seems to have deserted the two nearest me, to be honest. What was reliably a packed parking lot back in 2019 is now half full or less, while the joints down the street are hopping. I’m guessing they’ve got some upper management problems that won’t get solved before the whole chain implodes. It’s sad, sorf of. They used to be good.
@werehatrack Usually people spit on me for actually wholeheartedly loving McDonald’s instead of whatever $20 gourmet burger they can’t stop raving about despite it costing three times what I pay for an entire meal. (I’ve tried many ‘gourmet’ burger places, and none of them were ever as tasty to me as McDonald’s or most other fast food chains, and that is my fully honest personal taste!)
I don’t actively like McD for the most part, but I still find them useful for certain things. I just wish they had kept any of their truly excellent specialty-level burgers on their menu. I found the regular QP to be insipid at best long ago, and have not had one in at least a decade. And the Big Mac has the peculiar place of being something that I enjoy the first three bites and then can’t eat the rest, even when ordered without their slabs of plastic cheez. But I’ll grab breakfast from them without regrets.
Burger King double whopper is my weakness. However, my local store employees either can’t read, or just DGAF, since I order it without any “sauce” (e.g. mustard/ mayo/ ketchup/other weird toppings) and they can’t/won’t make it that way. So I am safe since I won’t eat a burger with any of these, esp “Catsup”-“Ketchup”-anything based on tomato puree. At least it keeps me away from junk food.
@CBL_WV I do love me a Double Whopper, but like your experience, none of my local BKs ever seem to be able to make it the way I ask, which is suspicious for a restaurant that constantly says ‘Have it Your Way’.
Concur on the Double Whopper being generally good, and I find it particularly attractive because I personally loathe mustard - which virtually all of the other chains seem incapable of omitting around here. But the standard Whopper formula doesn’t call for it, so I’m safe. (The Jumbo Jack is the other safe haven in that regard.) You are not alone in avoidance of tomato. I have a business associate who dares not eat it, and this has created some interesting times at post-event dinners.
It’s not what was asked, but I find Five Guys French fries to be the single most overrated food item on the planet. The greasiest I have ever had the displeasure of eating…they almost soaked through the bag! The burger was okay but not worth the price. I’m not even picky when it comes to fries! The only ones I really don’t care for otherwise are Wendy’s. Favorite fries include McDonald’s, Arby’s curly fries, and the ever-disappearing Taco Bell Nacho Fries. (Those barely lasted two months this time!!)
Man half these places (Jack in the box, wallaburger, chick-fil-a) I’ve herd of them but have never seen them on my state. I know there used to be a Popeyes in the “hood” not to far away but I don’t drive through there so have no idea if is there anymore.
Jack in the box must be a west coast thing bc I’ve never seen them when driving to Florida either.
Jack in the Box is an American fast-food restaurant chain founded February 21, 1951, by Robert O. Peterson in San Diego, California, where it is headquartered. The chain has over 2,200 locations, primarily serving the West Coast of the United States. Restaurants are also found in selected large urban areas outside the West Coast, including Phoenix, Denver, Albuquerque, El Paso, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Baton Rouge, Nashville, Charlotte, Kansas City, St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati as well as one in Guam.
They are all over the place in Texas. (I wonder if we have half of those 2200.)
You must have driven the northerly route to Florida.
Similar for Chick-fil-a. I don’t know of “wallaburger”, but we have Whataburger restaurants all over the place in this state. I’ve eaten in them from Abilene to Austin to Dallas to Houston to Galveston to Tyler.
@brainmist Except for the fact that Popeye’s recently removed the red beans and rice from their side dishes. Or am I thinking of their “dirty rice”, bith of which are deeply cherished by the diaspora of New Orleanians spread across the country after Katrina, as well as those that don’t live there but still call it home.
