    I was quite disappointed with that joint. Sure...you order how you want the burger, but I really didn't think it was anything to write home about. In fact, we have a local burger joint here called Burger Baron. Has been around for DECADES, and that's what five guys reminds me of. And I'm not a real big fan of Burger Baron...it just tastes like absolute grease.

    They're opening up a Five Guys here. Maybe it was just the location I ate at. I dunno. It should be open soon and I'm taking my family there...just to see.

    One of the more famous burger places here in Cincinnati is called Quatmans, and it's a little neighborhood dive bar. Nothing super fancy about the burgers, just fresh beef and dripping with grease. The place kinda reminds me of the soup Nazi from Seinfeld. Order what you want right now because the waitress is never coming back. And you get one, and only one napkin. No exceptions.

    Must be all the angels singing, the shaft of light penetrating the heavens and M.J. coming back to life. All that at once can be pretty overwhelming.

    Yeah, 90 minutes post McRibination and I'm still moaning and farting like crazy. I still see the shaft of light from heaven, but I've got dead relatives beckoning me to cross over.

    And I'd slap those babies around a bit too. I'm gonna get me one of these McRibs later tonight. :)

    But yeah, you're crazy eating those for lunch MSP. McDonalds is a day ender, sit on the couch and rub your belly type meal. Your body's got to figure out what to do with all those whacky chemicals.

    "Me, myself and I" don't really count as 3 people. ;)

    No wait, 4 people eating them. I forgot about Ed. Everybody else but me had a side of fries. I was the only one that had a McRib with a side of McRib. And of course regretted it almost immediately. Vegetarian dinner, and I still don't feel 100% yet.

    McDonalds is nasty, and the McRib is no exception. :D

    The "Big Mac" of the 80's was tasty. What they call a "Big Mac" now sucks ass.

    In general I agree McDonalds is gross. But their Angus burgers are actually pretty tasty. The grilled chicken snack wraps too.

    What's the difference these days? It's a guilty pleasure, but I like 'em.
    I've always loved the fries.

    There are some rich people who are fanatic about their fries, (from WIRED):
    "The new contender was created by Nathan Myhrvold, the former CTO of Microsoft. Myhrvold cuts his potatoes into batons and rinses them to get rid of surface starch. Then he vacuum-seals them in a plastic bag, in one even layer, with water. He heats the bag to 212 degrees for 15 minutes, steaming the batons. Then he hits the bag with ultrasound to cavitate the water—45 minutes on each side. He reheats the bag in an oven to 212 degrees for five minutes, puts the hot fries on a rack in a vacuum chamber, and then blanches them in 338-degree oil for three minutes. When they’re cool, Myhrvold deep-fries the potatoes in oil at 375 degrees until they’re crisp, about three more minutes, and then drains them on paper towels. Total preparation time: two hours." (emphasis added)

    The difference is the raw materials. Back in the 80's McD's had more of a "Mom'n'Pops" approach and you could tell in the taste. I couldn't tell you every exact difference but it's just not as fresh as it used to be. My guess is everything has changed.

    My first job the day I turned 16 was at Taco Bell..

    Taco bell has changed everything about how they prepare food from then to now. I expect the same with McD's. For instance, tortillas used to be kept in a steamer closet. Not anymore.

    Even Carl's Jr. has degraded in quality over the years. Still good but not as good.

    I believe that to be true with all franchises. They just aren't what they used to be and have evolved to where they are as a result of cutting corners in the name of efficiency and penny-pinching.

    You can say that again. The first time I ate McDonalds in Mexico I nearly fell out of my seat. Importing beef and such from the United States apparently doesn't happen, probably cost prohibitive, so from what I gather they source the beef locally. Best damn McDs burger I've ever eaten, so fresh...

    the mcrib is good without the sauce they put on it.

    all the mcribs ive had, the sauce or whatever onions they use tastes like a cleaning chemical, and the taste never leaves, no matter how you try to rinse.

    anyone wanna ship me some carls jr, or in and out to me?
    i'll pay shipping/haz dry ice costs.
