How good are lettuce wrap burgers in general? I've never tried it, but feel like I should for calorie reasons
The only ones I've ever had that are good are from In n Out, everyone else seems to server lettuce dripping with water which makes the burger really weird.

Red Robin refills on fries piss me off. I HATE when you have something unlimited, but you have to ask for more in order to get it. Because then it really only becomes unlimited based on how good the service is. I'd much rather have a buffet or salad bar where I can refill at my convenience.

I yearn for the day that Olive Garden's never ending pasta bowl becomes a never ending pasta bar.

it's about like you'd imagine, really. Five Guys does it best, from my thus-far limited experience with it. even McDonald's is okay, tho, triple cheeseburger with tomato and mayo added, lettuce leaf on each side... hits the spot for me.

Me and my girlfriend went into a Red Robin recently because I got a 50 dollar gift card and figured it would be a good way to get some drinks and a couple laughs. Our "endless" fry basket came with like 15 french fries and server didn't come back until they dropped off the bill. Granted I think I went to one of the worst Red Robins possible but it hardly lived up to its name.

Having worked in the service industry I tend to tip well, but servers like that can get fucked. At least make sure you're taking care of your customers

I'm still a fan of Mrs Renfro's regular hot salsa. Haven't found another I like more.

So the NFL and some MLB sports teams are already dropping Papa Johns which nixes the 50% deal and I sure as hell ain't paying full price for their level of food. RIP $3 garlic parmesan breadsticks, the last of your kind.

I fucking knew you were going to hipster me. Yes I know it’s not Renfros but it’s pretty amazing for Frito Lay!


Also I sprinkle Ghost Pepper In the salsa too. Noodleface Noodleface

Wait is noodle gone?

Noodle left because of the Tyen/swamp donkey thread. Apparently they were too white trash for him to stick around.

That was the biggest pussy move ever. I still don't why that thread is what broke him.

And c'mon, Mrs Renfro's is a nationally available brand. That's like calling some who prefers 5 Guys over Burger King to be hipster.

I think he may have some personal issues going on and that just sent him over the edge. FoH is a hard habit to break, he'll be back.

It's weird. All this talk about the smokehouse but i've been getting some artisan garlic crispy chicken sandwhich from mcd's and it's insanely good. Went to find it on their website but I don't see it. Pretty sure it was on the menu here in the west coast just a couple days ago.

edit: nm found it, had to do a strait google search:

Garlic White Cheddar with Buttermilk Crispy Chicken | McDonald’s

That one was replaced by the Smokehouse here. I loved the garlic one.

Also for you Taco Bell people, the Nacho Fries are back.

After driving for a few hours passed hunger time without signs suggesting anything good, I did hardee's. Not in the mood to haggle, I agree to their suggestions of "hot chicken sandwich" and medium drink (loser for not suggesting large - 101 folks!!)

It turned out to be a decent sandwich.
Unlike buffalo or tobasco or chemical pepper, it was more jerk. I would have liked a sauce, maybe even chipotle honey drizzle, but the pickles and the butter from Frisco bread did an admiral job
Warning: I did shit myself with this one, but I had onion rings also, because Hardee's fries are garbage.

No it’s absolutely not everywhere and on top of it especially on the East Coast the Habanero flavor is impossible to find unless it’s at Wegmans. So I’ll take this Tositios quick grab at Giant over medium Renfros (which is all we got sadly)

I've never even heard of Mrs Renfros. Ive lived in a lot of places in the US too.
