    Can't tell if this is a sign the neighborhood is improving because they got a Burger King or going downhill because they've got a Burger King

    It's outside of our neighborhood. They're currently expanding a highway and I think it's designed for being easy access off of that since the only other development currently near it is a gas station/car wash.

    That being said, they're adding commercial development in our neighborhood and one of the things already announced is, oddly enough, a Burger King. I'm not really sure you need two BK's less than 4 miles apart in the suburbs. Perhaps I should be concerned.

    You say that now but when you wake up and want a crossain'wich and there's a line at one, you'll be grateful you can go to the other

    I think BK is easily the worst fast food restaurant that is readily available. It's the Golden Corral of fast food.

    they have some decent stuff but their fries are for sure the worst of the regular fast food places

    even worse than wendys

    Their breakfast is decent but I haven't had a sandwich from BK that wasn't disappointing in like 15 years.

    BK probably more than any restaurant suffers from terrible execution. Their food wouldn't be that bad if they did everything correctly, but they're so poorly run that it almost never happens.

    This applies to a lot of McDonald's as well, but on average they are substantially better run than BK.

    About once a year I’ll go for a long chicken sandwich from BK, and it usually doesn’t live up to the hype that is created in my head.

    They had one of these that had spicy breading and it was quite good, then they changed and use a spicy sauce and it's trash.

    Small town pizza Inn or pizza hut are fond memories from childhood that are always disappointing now

    back in the day I loved panda. we would always get it on way home from dallas. was delicious and would also have it for leftovers next day. what it tasted like next day warmed up in microwave is what it tastes like fresh to me now, and i cringe when my family wants to stop there

    So this is kind of a game changer for me.. The Chilli's in my town is now selling Maggiano's. Can only get it delivered but I'll take it. These are strange times.

    Edit: there's a third restaurant also operating out of my chili's. Wings place.

    i think finding ethical ways to spend your money hard to live up to for various reasons not for this thread

    but CFA is a decent outlier among said shit bags, its like Hobby Lobby funding ISIS, not going to quibble if people decide to go elsewhere
