    Utz is a fake (although a decent one) it's Herr's that are legit Old Bay.

    And holy shit - checking out the Herr's site for prices since you inspired a craving - Herr's has Old Bay Cheese Curls - I cannot even imagine... have you tried them? $40 with shipping for a case is a bit steep with no familiarity.

    I forgot about undercooking. a lifetime ago I had them on boycott for this. I'm sorry you're still out of luck. my crust was perfect today.

    My youngest kid always struggles to eat for various reasons. However, he seems to have decided that Burger King JR cheese burgers are bloody awesome. He's eating three in a sitting, which is more than he was eating in a whole day. He's gaining weight. I know it's crap food, but he needs a little bulk. Plus, he's likely boosting BK's stock.

    On a side note, there is nothing on the BK menu that I particularly enjoy. I tried the chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich tonight. Meh. Totally unremarkable. It was billed as some special sandwich we're lucky to have at our local BK.

    I feel the same way, been to BK plenty over the years but nothing ever stands out. It's one of those fast food places that isn't the worst by a long shot just nothing memorable. I take that back the Angry Whopper owns shit but they removed it. We should be burning down all BK's in protest.

    Im a BK connosiuer, don't get gourmet shit. Stick to regular burgers. For chicken you can't beat Wendy's so don't even try.

    But I hear Wendy's quality is highly variable and dependent on location

    We need new reusable jokes. Our material is starting to become late-seasons Archer bad.

    How do you not like their onion rings? Or the whopper? Both are classics of fast food.

    The onion rings are decent, the whopper is decent. Neither are awesome. They're just ok.

    Even if you don't like onion rings, getting one in your fries instantly makes every fry better

    I don't like anything at BK because I haven't been to a BK in over a decade that was worth a shit. Every time I think "let's roll the dice" I get a fucked up microwaved burger, soggy undercooked onion rings, gross vegetation, and outright retarded service. I'm shocked BK is even still in business.

    Back in the day, BK was the fucking jam. 99 cent whoppers were the shit, fries were always shit but the onion rings were always a go to. Which makes the downfall so much worse.

    10, maybe 15 years ago I bit into a BK chicken sandwich that was completely raw. I'm sick now just thinking of that texture. Haven't been back since. None of my kids has ever stepped foot in a BK. F that place

    Is Smashburger a national chain? If I want a burger, I go to 5 guys or Smashburger

    I am with @chaos. There is zero reason to go to BK now.

    I'm probably the only person that likes bk. I did work there though, so at least I know the burgers we're grilled / broiled in a way that can't be fucked up. Anything fried is really up to the dude running the fryolators

    I like BK. The BK Broiler back in the day was the greatest chicken sandwich. Don't think it's around anymore, sadly. However, I've never had a bad experience with a traditional whopper + onion rings.

    i miss the old cheap stackers at BK. i think they're still on the menu but they don't have the sauce anymore? and cost more than they used to. have barely seen a reason to go back there in years. tho once in awhile when they're doing $1.49 10 piece nuggets i'll stop and order a couple packs.
