Fuck Subway and their pussy vegetables. I go to Wendy's get myself a heart shattering Baconator covered in Mayonnaise and Ketchup with six strips of bacon and 2 meat patties doused in hot melted cheese all forming some sort of warm cholesterol glop. mmm

I dont eat subway as I live within 20 feet of one and pretty much have to smell it all day long if i leave the windows open. If i do decide to get fast food which is about twice a week its either in-n-out, carl's jr, or wendy's.

ThomThom

Yes, you can actually order a burger with up to 10 patties in it, the most I have had was 4 and that is called the "4x4"

ThomThom

No, just your choice of regular/grilled onions, 1000 island spread, lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

ThomThom
12-11-2007, 03:38 PM
Also I forgot to mention cheese as an option for In N Out burgers... Cheesecake Factory has a very good burger if you ever get a chance to try it, it's called The Kobe Burger, I believe it comes with grilled onions, sauteed mushrooms and crumbled bleu cheese. Get that with their fries and a Guinness and you'll feel like a million bucks.

are there special burgers you can order at in n out that arent on the menu? because I heard there are.

Animal Style = the meat is cooked and fried with mustard and then pickles are added, extra spread and grilled onions are added.

Animal Style Fries = fries with cheese, spread, grilled onions and pickles (if you ask for them).

Fries with cheese = Fries with two slices of melted cheese placed on top.

Double Meat = like a Double Double without cheese.

Triple Meat = Three meat patties without cheese.

3 by Meat = three meat patties and no cheese.

3-by-3 = three meat patties and three slices of cheese.
4-by-4 = four meat patties and four slices of cheese.
2-by-4 = two meat patties and four slices of cheese.
*In the past, you culd order 5-by-5, 6-by-6 or more, but they recently capped it at 4-by-4.

Protein Style = a burger with no bun (wrapped in lettuce).

Flying Dutchman = two meat patties, two slices of melted cheese and nothing else, not even a bun

Extra Everything = Adds extra spread, tomato, lettuce, and onions (regular or grilled).

Fries Well-Done = extra crispy fries. highly recommended.

Fries Light = opposite of fries well-done, more raw than most people like them

Grilled Cheese = no meat, just melted cheese, tomato, lettuce and spread on a bun. There is also a Grilled Cheese Animal Style (grilled onions are added).

Veggie Burger = burger without the meat or cheese.

Neapolitan Shake = strawberry, vanilla and chocolate blended together.

Lemon up = 1/2 lemonade 1/2 7-up.

Root Beer Float = Vanilla shake with root beer combined.

You can basically ask for anything you want as long as they have the ingredients.

That sounds excellent. We are going out for a semi-nice dinner on friday, so maybe we'll hit up cheesecake factory and I will order that exact meal. Also, the cheesecake factory that we got doesnt have a bar that you can sit up to and order food and drinks. They have a full bar menu, but know bar. I have heard that cheescake factory bars are pretty cool and are nice to sit at while you wait for your table. fuck living in utah.

Is chik filet mormon owned?

nope..

wikipedia:

Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy is a devout Southern Baptist who has taught Sunday School for over 44 years and whose religious beliefs permeate the company to this day. The company's official statement of corporate purpose says that the business exists "to glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A." The chain invests heavily in community services (especially for children and teenagers) and scholarships. Cathy's beliefs are also responsible for one of the chain's distinctive features: All Chick-fil-A locations (company-owned and franchised, whether in a mall or freestanding) are closed on Sundays.
Our decision to close on Sunday was our way of honoring God and directing our attention to things more important than our business. If it took seven days to make a living with a restaurant, then we needed to be in some other line of work. Through the years, I have never wavered from that position.

S. Truett Cathy [5]

Several of the religious organizations that Truett Cathy and Chick-fil-A have lent support to include groups such as Focus on the Family. Groups researching financial support of religious groups have noted that Truett Cathy is one of the largest corporate sponsors of politically active religious groups in the US, largely through grants from the Truett Cathy Foundation but occasionally through direct sponsorship as well or through partnership with other foundations that are major corporate sponsors of politically active religious groups.[citation needed]

Chick-fil-A has promoted religious groups via toys and CDs included in children's meals, much as movie studios promote new movies via McDonald's Happy Meal toys. These have ranged from including toys from the Christian television series VeggieTales in children's meals to including Financial Peace for Kids children's books by Christian financial guru Dave Ramsey and CDs from the Christian radio program Adventures in Odyssey, as children's meal incentives. The latter show is produced by the radio division of Focus on the Family, and typically heard on Christian radio stations.

Chick-fil-A and Focus on the Family also have a history of cross-promotion. Chick-fil-A has also sponsored meetings by the group All Pro Dad; All Pro Dad is a group with affiliations with Focus on the Family via a group called Family First; Family First promotes a large number of conservative religious causes, including covenant marriage.

Chick-fil-A has also directly sponsored other religious campaigns. One of the groups sponsored by Chick-fil-A is Athletes In Action which is a sports missionary arm of the Campus Crusade for Christ.

Another link between Chick-fil-A and religious groups includes promotion of National Bible Week. Truett Cathy is the chair of the National Bible Week Committee.

Truett Cathy is also heavily involved in the WinShape Foundation, a non-profit organization which was started in 1984 with its goal to "shape winners" by offering summer camps, retreats, foster care, and other services.

Amidst the company's push to the southwest, Las Vegas remains the southernmost large city without a Chick-fil-A location.[6]

Chick-fil-A's connection to Christianity has even been brought up in court when Aziz Latif, a Houston-based Muslim employee for 6 years, sued the company in 2002 for firing him, alleging that he was fired for his religious beliefs when he had refused to take part in an employee prayer.[7]

Kreutz, you must listen to crazz, the avocado spring rolls are out of this world and are a great starter for any meal there. If I remember correctly, last time I was there and ordered the Kobe Burger they no longer include crumbled Bleu Cheese, you now have to order it on the side. It does still come with sauteed mushrooms and grilled onions though, and make sure you have it with a Guinness, nothing else.

at Subway i get the club with mustard (no mayo! ick), cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, olives, salt & pepper, oil & vinegar, and jalepenos. no cucumbers or peppercinis for me, they tear my stomach up.

I do like hamburgers on occasion. BK and Jin the B are dreadful, McD slightly better, but Wendy's is pretty good. I try to get a salad or something instead of the fries, though.

oooo, I haven't tried that. Since I am limited to chicken/poultry regarding fast food, Chik Fil A seems to make the best chicken stuff. I don't eat mammals, so no burgers for me.
I hate that they are closed on Sundays though because I tend to find myself at the mall on Sunday rather than on Saturday.

I've never been to In and Out burger, we dont have them in Canada. Although I did drive past one when I was in LA a while back. I took a picture, mostly because of the big lebowski. Look's like when I'm down for Coachella I will have to put in and out burger on the 'to do' list.

When I am in the states though, I LOVE Carl's Jr. I dont know why. I hold out for hours on road trips till we enter the US and then till we spot the first one. I can't help it.

In Calgary we have 'Burger Inn'... and it's amazing. It is defanitly enough to keep me satisfied up here, without worrying about what we dont have! haha.

I have only eaten at Carls Jr. once and I an barely remember what it was like. The reason I am turned off from Carls Jr. is because I hate everything about their commercials, I dont know quite how to explain why, but I get the same feeling watching their commercials as I do watching the "this is our country" commercials. I also dont like how the sandwich drops at the end of ever commercial.

canexplain
12-14-2007, 07:12 AM
The muffuletta (with numerous alternate spellings) is a type of Sicilian bread, as well as a sandwich in New Orleans, Louisiana, which is made with that bread.

The bread is a large, round, and somewhat flat loaf, around 10 inches (25 cm) across. It has a sturdy texture, and is described as being somewhat similar to focaccia.

The muffuletta sandwich originated in 1906 at Central Grocery, which was operated by Salvatore Lupo, a Sicilian immigrant. The sandwich is popular with city natives and visitors, and has been described as "one of the great sandwiches of the world."[1] Central Grocery still serves the sandwich using the original recipe. Other variations are served throughout the city. The locals have differing opinions on which shop serves the best muffuletta.

A typical muffuletta consists of one muffuletta loaf, split horizontally. The loaf is then covered with a marinated olive salad, then layers of capicola, salami, mortadella, emmentaler, and provolone. The sandwich is sometimes heated through to soften the provolone.[2]

The olive salad is considered the heart of the sandwich, and consists primarily of olives, along with celery, cauliflower, and carrot. The ingredients are combined, seasonings are added, covered in olive oil and allowed to combine for at least 24 hours. Prepared olive salad for muffulettas can also be bought by the jar in New Orleans grocery stores.[3]

The muffuletta is the signature sandwich at the Jason's Deli chain[4] and also at Murphy's Deli[5]. Schlotzsky's chain of restaurants features sandwiches using sourdough muffuletta bread.

Carbohydrates, in the form we intake them, are giant polymers of various sugars. They can be broken down into smaller glycogen chains, or broken down to glucose, or fructose, or turned into fatty acids. It all depends what kind of situation you're in, but for the typical non-starved person they get converted to glycogen and fatty acids. So, while fatty acids aren't sugars, glycogen is the storage form of glucose (made from glucose 6-phosphate). Don't fuck with me, I just took metabolic biochem.

miscorrections
12-19-2007, 09:36 PM
Of course not, because sugars and fatty acids are different. Duh. Fries have both.

Although, with the fatty acids, those'll be oxidized down to acetyl CoA and then, in a typical non-starved person, the acetyl CoA can be pushed through the citric acid cycle to fuel oxidative phosphorylation, just like a glucose molecule would do (although that has to get converted to pyruvate and then to acetyl CoA first).

Is that what she was saying? I don't think it was. Let's test your reading comprehension here for a second and you try to explain to me that's what she was saying.


I never understood the point of getting diet soda if you're eating fast food anyway. If you're going to overload on calories, what're a few hundred more?

Actually that's exactly what I'm saying, in sort of the opposite scenario.
My statement: If you're determined to be unhealthy regardless, just be unhealthy.
Adam's (correct) interpretation of my later statements: If you want to be healthy, then commit yourself to being healthy.

what if the fake sugar in diet coke ends up causing people to have bat babies, saccharine style? what's better, slender bat babies and cancerous rats, or being fat?

No, I honestly do think it's close to pointless. I'm sort of trying to understand why someone would do it, but mostly I'm just surprised that they do do it at all.

Fuck Subway and their pussy vegetables. I go to Wendy's get myself a heart shattering Baconator covered in Mayonnaise and Ketchup with six strips of bacon and 2 meat patties doused in hot melted cheese all forming some sort of warm cholesterol glop. mmm

That sounds pretty awesome.


oh...I wonder if we will ever get an in n out burger in Utah. We just barely got a cheesecake factory and the wait was like 3 and a half hours, which is ridiculous in utah.

I was in town when the Cheesecake Factory came to Virginia Beach and there was a 3 hour line that wrapped around the block to get inside. Scary.


Also I forgot to mention cheese as an option for In N Out burgers... Cheesecake Factory has a very good burger if you ever get a chance to try it, it's called The Kobe Burger, I believe it comes with grilled onions, sauteed mushrooms and crumbled bleu cheese. Get that with their fries and a Guinness and you'll feel like a million bucks.

Cheesecake Factory has the best chicken sandwich in the world. It's this gigantic chicken breast, crispy and fried, of course, with a spicy sauce and I forgot what kind of cheese, but it rocked. Fries were awful, though.

In & Out won't spread to the east coast, no matter how much people beg for a franchise, but now there's something quite like it, but even better. It's called Five Guys, and they do the whole "fresh, not frozen beef and fries" thing, but they have a lot more things available to put on the burger that I&O doesn't, like bacon, steak sauce, mayo, etc. The fries are much better though, because they are cut thicker and come with this great cajun seasoning. Just wish they had cheddar cheese instead of american...ugh.

I can't stomach most of the crap at McDonalds, Carls Jr, and especially Burger King. If I want a heart attack and extra inch on the waistline kind of meal, I'd rather go to Pink's and get a chili burger and orange crush. Soda with cane sugar >>>> typical soda with corn syrup

The Counter in Santa Monica has the best burgers, though.

Man, back when I used to eat fast food, Five Guys was great. They really do have good burgers. They're a bit pricey, but damn good food. The fries were also pretty good. There's one about 4 minutes from my house, right next door to a Moes Southwest Grill, home of a good quesadilla. Mmmmmm.

In & Out doesn't franchise-all of their units are corporate owned. They're on a slow growth pattern because they have to be able to find localized suppliers that meet their high food quality standards before they grow-since they refuse to freeze anything (meat only stays fresh for so long before they have to freeze it).

Go to Carl's Jr. and get yourself a western bacon chee with grilled chicken

It's not on the menu anymore but they'll still make it for you. It's got all the deliciousness of the OG WBC but a few less calories... so you can get a Cap'n Crunch Shake on the side.

If you don't live in a state with Carl's Jr... suck it!

They were a bit too fishy for my taste. Then again, I always order my fast food fish without tartar sauce. Try saying that fast three times.
