    Plus I can remember the last time I had something other than breakfast there. The one near my old office was next to Zaxbys, Chick-fila-a, Whataburger, and Flame Broiler so they'd all get my business for lunch before Sonic.

    Your food is cooked in there whether you go in or not. I really only eat fast food on road trips so going in is a chance to stretch the legs/hit the head. I also feel like the quality of the food (or at least it's presentation) correlates directly with the mood of the employees.

    Like this is a terrible spot for Sonic. The Flame Broiler and Jimmy John's are in the building with Smoothie too. McDonald's between Zaxbys and Wendys too.

    I eat one McRib a year for nostalgia, 4-wheeler.

    And yes, always trust the fat guy when it comes to food. This is a well accepted fact.

    A day late on Wendy's discussion but the spicy sandwich is fine. Different than it was years ago but not super small like someone said. They are two for five now and pretty solid.

    No that’s the regular one. The smaller one is the crispy sandwich or something like that.

    Yeah Taco Bell is way too high and Sonic shouldn't be on the list unless it's a list of places that make cherry limeade slushies and terrible food

    Oh well that one seems much smaller than what it used to be. Or maybe everyone else is just bigger now so it seems small in comparison.

    I’d bump TB up a tier (though their insistence on shrinking the menu is giving me pause on that), but I pretty much agree with all of this.

    Taco Bell and Checkers/Rally's might be the most consistently filthy places that I'm willing to eat.

    Id put Captain D's and LJS beneath them. Maybe Church's.

    And Wendy's spicy chicken has without a doubt gotten smaller. It used to be a thin chicken breast, maybe pounded out or butterfly. They use some over processed chicken patty now. It's criminally small compared to the old days.

    it is still good. a step back for sure from what it used to be but still good overall

    the bigger issue which has been discussed repeatedly is the massive, massive downgrade in their fries.

    I haven’t had it in years, but back in the day I’d crave Long John Silver’s once a year. You could hear your arteries clogging but it was worth it for their delicious hush puppies and crispy fish. Judge me.
