You made me laugh! Thanks.

 

Yep, steel-belted radials would probably bring down the stoutest wood chipper.

 

It depends on the staff at the Burger King, A LOT. It can be good or it can be dangerous to your health and good sanity. A bad meal can bring me down in a hurry. Ours varies from excellent to inedible. But as far as worse places, my last visit to Subway was horrific. That was only for that location and that particular visit, although I'll never risk another one there. It was especially disappointing because I had been jonesing for months about a great Subway sandwich I got at the food court inside Duke Hospital in Durham. They even had alfalfa sprouts and all the ingredients were fresh and perfect. It just goes to show that everything depends on the staff at your local store, and some of them do not have any motivation to provide a good product. I realize the pay is low, but you know what? You are here so you might as well do the best you can with what you got. That is the way I always looked at it anyway, when I was working as a usually underpaid whatever. Some do and some don't. It's a complete crapshoot, and I am not a gambler.

 

I gave up on Subway when they asked me if I wanted lettuce on my salad.

Our BK must not have air scrubbers, you can stand outside and smell the broiling going on. It is also directly across from our Hostess/Dolly Madison plant so while smelling burgers, you also get the smell of bread and cupcakes and Twinkies baking. I think I gain weight every time I am stopped there at the traffic light.

The Harris Poll - 2017 Burger Brands...

  1. Five Guys Burgers and Fries
  2. In-N-Out Burger
  3. Shake Shack
  4. Wendy's
  5. Culver's
  6. Whataburger
  7. McDonald's
  8. SONIC America's Drive-In
  9. Smashburger
  10. Steak 'n Shake

Is there a flame broiled burger in there?

 

Actually, that may be a marketing hype list.  I recently went to Five Guys for the first time and concluded that while the burger was good, it was nowhere near as good as all the news articles plastered on their walls would suggest.  And that's really all their decor is - news clippings.  It was like I walked into their own little burger masturbatoreum.

The small town next to me has a McD's and I sometimes stop there after my hair appointments.

I always order the chicken sandwich (with lettuce, tomato, onion and mayo) and a small bag o' fries.

It's actually very good.
