Taco Bell: original taco (crispy shell), bean burrito, fire sauce. Taco salad was good but got discontinued.
Burger King: original chicken sandwich (oblong bun, oblong patty), Prefer BK French fries to McD's.
Jack in the Box: seasoned curly fries.
Wendy's: chili, Frosty (original flavor).

It depends on the owner of the franchise, too. In our area, most of the McDonald's were owned by a certain gay guy in the 70's, and he was a super clean freak and an equally super quality freak. You could always count on a quite good meal at one of his places.
By the way, there have to be at least a few of you who remember him living in retirement in Ft Lauderdale.

I had Olive Garden's salad with Italian dressing for the first time in a long while when I was spending Christmas with the family last year. I was reminded the salad is quite nice, with cold, crunchy lettuce and vegetables and a pleasantly bright, acidic dressing. The only problem was that it was overdressed. Serving from the top of the bowl and ignoring all the sogginess at the bottom worked out well, though.

I haven’t eaten there in a few years but I never found Whataburger’s fries to be anything special. They were hot and crisp at least but I didn’t find they had a lot of flavor so I needed tons of ketchup. That’s my barometer of a good French fry: if they’re really good they don’t need ketchup at all. I don’t get the love for Chick-Fil-A’s waffle fries either

r43, here is a section of the wiki on submarine sandwiches. It includes all the names by which the sandwich is known around the country. The words "mustard" and "mayonnaise" appear exactly zero times throughout the article.
I'm not saying you can't order a sandwich and ask them to desecrate it with those two substances. But don't call it a sub. Or maybe go to Subway or Quiznos. Their standards seem more congruent with your own.
[quote] One theory says the submarine was brought to the U.S. by Dominic Conti (1874–1954), an Italian immigrant who came to New York in the late 19th century. He is said to have named it after seeing the recovered 1901 submarine called Fenian Ram in the Paterson Museum of New Jersey in 1928. His granddaughter has stated the following:
[quote]My grandfather came to this country circa 1895 from Montella, Italy. Around 1910, he started his grocery store, called Dominic Conti's Grocery Store, on Mill Street in Paterson, New Jersey where he was selling the traditional Italian sandwiches. His sandwiches were made from a recipe he brought with him from Italy, which consisted of a long crust roll, filled with cold cuts, topped with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, onions, oil, vinegar, Italian herbs and spices, salt, and pepper. The sandwich started with a layer of cheese and ended with a layer of cheese (this was so the bread wouldn't get soggy).

Firehouse Subs had a really tasty (though way too indulgent) sub last year. I don't think they have it now. It was a mix of a traditional meatball sub, pepperoni pizza and garlic bread all in one sub. I don't even want to know how many calories were in that thing, but it was so tasty. I think this is it.

If I'm not that hungry, or am feeling cheap (even their smallest order of fries is too many), I'll just get a Five Guys cheeseburger ($12.50ish) and a cup of water.
I didn't find Wednesday's bacon cheeseburger underseasoned, as r161 asserts, but the fries seemed to have no salt at all. In addition to bacon, I got ketchup, mustard, pickles, mushrooms, and tomatoes. It was perfect.

Five Guys always taste like mush. And it tastes like something I could make at home. There’s no distinctive signature flavor to it. In a blind taste test, no one could tell it’s from Five Guys whereas people could immediately tell the difference between a Whopper, Big Mac, or Double Double Animal Style.

R226 and r238, Get an air fryer. I suppose if you don't finish a large pizza in one sitting you throw the rest out?

Leftover pizza is completely different than a leftover hamburger.

OK. Please make me a list of all the foods that are acceptable to put in the fridge and heat up the next day. Chinese? Spaghetti? Meatloaf? A Subway sandwich?

Yes to all those. Except I would never go to Subway. Their bread smells like ass.

So a Subway sandwich with meat, cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomatoes is OK to warm up the next day, but a burger with the same ingredients isn't?

You're tedious. Keep warming up leftover hamburger, gramps. Blocked.

Oh, fuck no. No way. Especially one w/mayo on it.

No, Chinese food is better cold the next day. Same with spaghetti and lasagna.

The Italian fast food chain Fazoli's has surprisingly good lasagna. It may be a result of them saving money by skimping on cheese and not adding sugar to the tomato sauce, but it ends up much more in tune with my taste than the pasta at most Italian restaurants. I'll sometimes get their lunch special of a half portion with a Caesar side salad and feel pretty good about the nutritional value of the meal.

Being clear that the context is good within chains, I always thought Hooter's had a number of good things - chips and queso, decent burgers - especially the sliders - and really good wings. Though I'd specify naked wings and then add dry rub or sauce. If you don't specify, Hooter's breads their wings.

For those bringing up CAVA how does it compare to ZOES? CAVA bought ZOES a couple of years ago. I only have ZOES in my area, though there have been rumblings CAVA may convert a couple of them to CAVA. ZOES is definitely one of the more satisfying and flavorful "healthy" fast casual chains out there. Their chicken kabobs and their (reitred?) lamb meatballs were delicious last time I ate there. Lots of fresh, lighter sides to choose from, too.

Don't eat most of this stuff, but the potato pancakes at Perkins are amazing. More like potato crepes.

Last Popeyes buffet in the world has closed in Lafayette, Louisiana. Sad.
Wonderful food when they had the buffet here in New Orleans.

I’m also addicted to Church’s Fried Chicken. Popeye’s is a real close second.

I think a party featuring a Popeyes's Buffet would be perfect for entertaining a group of fat whores. Don't forget the coconut cake and a candy dish filled with Pepto tablets.

Bistro Shrimp Pasta at Cheesecake Factory (I have this maybe twice a decade, and it's never changed, and is always good) Avocado Eggrolls at Cheesecake Factory (an institution if you ask me, and better than their cheesecake) Warm Pretzels and TGI Fridays (they always come blazing hot out of the fryer, the bastards) Cajun Chicken and Shrimp Pasta at TGI Fridays, no chicken, extra shrimp, extra cajun butter (a true fat whore's feast)

Taco Bell- regular beef soft tacos; bean and cheese burrito, ask for it with red AND green sauce; potato tacos, burrito supreme. Diet Pepsi is a must. Taco bell breakfast with the potato egg and cheese or egg, bacon and cheese breakfast burrito is great.
Del Taco- still has a taco salad; regular soft tacos are still ok and the turkey tacos (crunchy) are good too. Combo burrito good and the beyond burrito is good. Breakfast is good. Bean burritos are ok.
McD's- chicken nuggets, regular cheeseburger; double cheeseburger; egg mc Muffin or sausage McMuffin with egg; occasionally sausage biscuit. Strawberry sundae, hot fudge or vanilla cone. Diet Coke a must. On cheeseburgers, extra ketchup and extra pickles. Very rarely do I get fries. Shamrock Shake, once a year.
Olive Garden, Pasta e Fagioli and breadsticks with salad.
Pizza Hut - original pan pizza cheese, with extra cheese. Yes I type fat.
Jack in the Box- original tacos. They are like crack and super cheap. Get the hot sauce and side of ranch. Jalapeno poppers with ranch.
Jersey Mikes - Turkey and Provolone, Mike's Way
Subway- turkey breast and ham, or subway club with all the veggies, white cheese, cucumber, pickles, no pepperoncinis or jalapenos. No oil/vinegar and light mayo and mustard. On wheat.

The Toowoomba Pasta at Outback used to be pretty good. I think they got rid of it.
Their hot wings are great, but only if you ask for an extra side of their “hot sauce”, which is really a paste that you have to microwave.
I worked there in college 20 years ago, and this still holds true.

The Diet Coke at my local McD's (two McD's near my house) has been inconsistent. Not enough syrup, not enough carbonation, not enough ice, etc.

McDonalds Coke tastes terrible. Too much cinnamon, not sweet enough.

I doubt there's cinnamon in McD's Coke. Cinnamon flavoring maybe.
