Out of all the fast food places I've been, I've never had a bad meal at Arby's, Chick fil-A, or Bojangles. The rest vary wildly based on location, but I've gotta say BK is the worst. I don't even try to go there anymore. And the new shit they come up with? The f***ing Whopperito?! No thanks.

I saw the commercial for that the other day and I was like, WTH?

I know, right?  They look so unappetizing.  I think it's the pickle stuck in the middle or something.  :)

We are getting a Five Guys burgers this fall in our town.  I've never been to one but my brother and sister in law rave about theirs so I guess we will check it out when it opens!

I don't think they're anything special. Hamburgers are bland.

I actually disagree. They have tasty options and the fries are great.

It will be interesting to check it out!  Our town always seems to get two of something at the same time.  2 new auto parts stores.  Lowe's and Home Depot at the same time. Applebee's and Chili's within 6 months.  2 Frozen yogurt places, each a block away from each other.(both still open, with lines all the time, which says something about our town!)  Now we are getting Five Guys and Chick Fil A , both in the same shopping center, this fall.   We actually go to a family pizza/sub shop the most.

Tasty options? Like what? I've been there several times with friends and nothing stood out to me as being particularly appealing.

The family owned places are usually the best. My favorite pizza place in my hometown easily beats out the chains and even the often very good trendier places too. I ALWAYS drop by for some zza when I'm visiting family...actually the entire Blaze clan go together when I visit :blaze:

just some advice, but order one fry for every 2 people. They fill the fry container and then dump another complete fry order in the bag. Good fries too...fresh cut that day, started out the day as potatoes. My kid used to work there and hated the grunt job of cutting spuds.

Something I learned from my kid, but five guys are religious about cleaning the entire restaurant at night...everything gets a complete scrub down.

That's good to hear after those mystery illnesses at Chipotle last year!  I have a relative who manages a Sweetgreen restaurant.  It's like Panera Bread, but with mostly salads, in the California and DC areas.  They are fanatically clean also, at least in the 3 where she has managed and trained.

I would say those bags have enough fries for 4 people.  I've never finished it with just 2.

When they're buying raw spuds and cutting their own, their costs must be must less.

i can buy a 10 pound bag of russet potatoes for $2.49.  A medium fry in a fast food joint is almost or slightly more than $3.00 - depending on where you go.  You hardly get any fries  They must make quite a profit.
