    This morning I went to a place called Carls Jr. and had one of their breakfast things on the menu. A sausage egg and cheese biscuit. It was very good and they gave me two of them. Bonus! :D Favorite thing so far on their breakfast menu. What's yours?

    What, no bacon?! ;)
    I try not to eat too much, but when I do I go back and forth with Five Guys and Z Burger (a local chain).
    Get the same thing at both which I can recite in my sleep:
    "Grilled cheese with lettuce, tomato, raw onion, jalapenos and mayonnaise and a regular fry"
    Don't really eat meat at FF joints. :)
    We have some "fancified" FF places here also. Chipotle is the benchmark for service/quality. Here's a couple good ones I frequent:
    Cava Mezze Grill
    ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen
    (the latter actually a concept by the owners of Chipotle who only opened up one for whatever reason in DC. It's really good and the tofu is no joke spicy!)

    Nice! Carls Jr. has burgers with bacon also. ;) I've had Five guys and they are pretty good. I'll have to see if I have those places so I can check them out one day. :)

    Doubt you have either. One is a one off and the other is only in the DC metro area.
    Don't you have In n Out where you are? I miss that place to death, but thankfully Five Guys is able to fill my needs.

    We do have In and out, but it's in Frisco unfortunately. :(
    I have heard it's better than five guys actually.

    Uh oh, don't open that can of worms! :eek:
    It's been about 8 years since I've had In n Out, so I can't really comment well. I remember them being a bit more consistent with their fries which 5G is horrible with, and they have pretty decent shakes.

    Yeah, their shakes are good as well as Carls. I also have ate at a place called Zaxby's which has good Chicken strips and fries.

    Seen a Zaxby's before (in the South somewhere?) but have never been.
    My favorite pizza chain growing up (in MA) was Papa Gino's. Absolutely. loved. it. :)
    I'm sure if I try it now I'd probably be pretty disappointed, but when I was a kid it was heaven.

    I love pizza! Ever have Little Cesar's? They're pretty good and cheep too. :)
    Never had papa gino's before, but you should give it another go and see if you still like it.

    Haven't had Little Caesars in forever (and only a couple times in my life), so can't remember. We generally go between Dominos and Pizza Hut. Neither all that great, but I generally go for the latter since I prefer their "deep dish" pies. Plus, smother enough ranch dressing on the slices and throw back a couple beers and who can tell the difference. ;)

    Assume they do. Maybe Pup will chime in as they should be in his neck of the woods.

    Wings are great to have with a pizza sometimes IMO. Have some wings with some ranch... yum!

    Not sure about Pizza Huts, but Dominos wings are really good especially for a pizza place. One of my favorite drunk foods is Domino's wings and cheesy bread ;). I don't know if I'd consider Five Guys fast food, but they are decent. I guess my favorites would be Hardees (which is basically the same as Carl Jr's), KFC, Wendy's and Arbys. Hardees breakfast is just as good as, if not better than, McDonald's except for McDonald's steak egg and cheese bagel. That is the bomb.

    There is nothing like a good crispy tripe sandwich...Red Robbins have some pretty good gourmet style burgers also.

    Don't know what Bento, or Parmo are, so please educate me.
    As for burgers, In and Out are amazing, Five guys are incredible, and I like Freddies really well too. We also have a Fuddruckers here that makes pretty tasty burgers to order, as well.

    Arby's French dip n Swiss is pretty good, Marco's Pizza is good, don't know how widespread they are. There's a chain around here called Cousin Vinnies Pizza that's open till like four in the morning, and their pizza is always hot, fresh, tasty and cheap. Perfect drunk food lol. No In n Out around here, but we do have Five Guys. Bacon and grilled mushroom burger please. Damn, now I'm hungry.
