I never had a McRib before and haven't quite got the cult fascination with it. Sounds nasty, really. Inevitably, McRib reminds me of The Simpsons episode where Homer chases after the ribwich at the next test market location.

As far as fast food goes, I don't really like chain restaurants all that much. Quiznos, In-N-Out, and Wendy's are OK, but I usually patronize the local businesses who serve a high quality offering.

Every now and then, I follow the food trucks. The last couple of years, L.A. has become a food truck heaven and now, you can find a variety of food trucks serving different cuisines. Good stuff.

Portland's "Cart Courts" are blowing up. They're basically a grouping of carts (food trucks/converted food buses/5th wheel food carts). They're popping up everywhere and are just about the greatest thing ever. In on spot you can chose from awesome burritos, pizza, burgers, sammiches, raviolis, Thai food, ice cream, etc. Most are open till 3 in the morning...it's like an end of the evening wonderland.

I love Culver's. Mostly Wisconsin, but I think they've branched out to a few neighboring states. Nothing better than a Double Bacon Butter Burger with the Works. And they make awesome desserts, too.

Five Guys burgers and fries no doubt.

They make better burgers and fries than some sit down restaurants that I've been to.

One just opened a few blocks from my office, but I haven't tried them yet. Sounds like I need to go.



@Met & Artful - I am jealous of your food scene. I've watched a bunch of shows on Travel Channel where Bourdain or Zimmer or that little mousy blonde eats at a food cart and it always sounds so good. I'm sure you can find bad food carts, but for the most part they sound like a great alternative.

Culvers, that's the frozen custard place right? We have those here in Indy but I've never been to one.

I guess I'd have to say Subway, but I very rarely eat fast food.

If I really want to indulge I'll hit Hardee's for a thickburger. Otherwise, McD's cheezburgers are my go-to food for road trips.

.


note: the large fries is enough to feed a family of 4...for about a week
also be prepared to pay about $10 for a burger, fries and drink

Five Guys is very good. Order a small fries, there will be more than enough for you.
