I've been going there since they only had two locations. I never made it to the original, but I know that at least two of the original Five have cooked my burgers.

I did some research, down here every single DQ is franchised, which means other than logos and blizzards, they are different. Some DQs I have gone to are excellent, including burgers. Others not so much. Food wise, Whataburger > DQ. DQ is still pretty dang good

We have 5 guys down here now and they do make a great burger.  We also have burger21 which is a hipster version of 5guys.

We had a bunch of whataburgers open down here a few years back and they all seem to have closed.  Pretty good burgers and seasonal pies were nice.

You'd think a state as large as Illinois would have a chain that would be known outside of the Midwest.

I was kidding.  What could be more absurd than the notion of the largest damn chain on the damn map not be know outside of the Midwest?  ;)

By the way, the first McDonalds is only a few blocks from the church that my wife and I were married in.  :)

That's what I thought...but I'm a little slow sometimes.

And, hey, it's nice that you could walk right to your reception!

As a resident of Florida I'm baffled by Burger King being especially associated with our state.

Notice its (the banner) located in the central to north part of Florida?  Right where all the worlds rednecks live.  They should make every county above Palm Beach part of GA.  Even GA would most likely reject that part of the country.

We should be known for HOOTERS.  started right down the road in Clearwater Florida.  I know it's not fast food but outback also started here in Tampa.

BK's is headquartered in MyJamMe. hence the FL connection.

OMG, I worked in a BK just outside of Detroit in 1970,  It did pretty good biz, especially being across the highway from a White Castle. Of course back then it was a good deal for good food>  Defimitely not that now.

Right now the best chain down here is Tijuana Flats-good Mexican food for the price. big sevings, and their giant serve yourself hot sauce bar.

Interesting OCB fact...there are none of them in Wisconsin; they tried to open a few there but couldn't find a way to make a profit.

Did not know about BK but would still prefer hooters.  Tijuana flats?  I eat there at least once a week.  Love the sauce bar Nd they have the best fresh jalapeños of any place I've ever tried.  I can't eat those nasty pickled peppers at the movies any more.  My go to item is the steak chimichanga loaded and a side of salsa for the chips.

I always thought that someone should open a buffet where, when you walk in, you step on a scale, and it charges you based on your weight.
