What the U.S. needs is kebab stands. I'd like one on every corner, like Starbucks, only not evil.

Wendy's is upping the ante. If this stuff really tastes like the old stuff, they're just going to be out that far ahead of everyone else.

Gus's Hot Dogs. A Capital Region/Albany insitution. It's a little hole-in-the-wall off of I-87 in Watervliet (just outside of Albany). Their hot dogs are something like 40 cents a piece, hamburgers/cheeseburgers are a dollar I think. They purchase all of their meat from a local butcher (downtown Troy, IIRC)...there was an article in the paper a year or two ago that talked about how they sell around 100,000 hot dogs a week. If you're gonna stop at Gus's for lunch, better get there early. In short, you can get six dogs (they're mini-dogs, like Hot Dog Charlie's) w/ the works, a cheeseburger, some chips and a soda for around $5. There is nothing better in the state of New York.

Since we are necroposting, the McLobster was a thing of delight. I had it a few times (it was also available in Ontario in select markets, and one of the franchises in my town was known to be a testing ground for new product) and it was delicious. If real lobster was not used, it fooled me - definitely closer to the real deal than the faux crab meat used at Asian restaurants in soups. The texture was good. There was just the right amount of mayo, and for once, the bun was the type a traditional lobster roll is served - soft, bland, and cheap.

If anyone ends up in NC, try to find a Cookout. Seriously, this will blow your mind. Combos where you get to chose two sides (sides include everything from fries and onion rings to corndogs and chicken nuggets) for around $5, a massive selection of milkshakes including my personal favorites watermelon in june and august and peach cobbler, and a genuinely massive menu featuring a pretty respectable BBQ plate and cheerwine as well as all the standards. The only downside is there isn't a dining room at any of the locations and the locations are few and far between with no website to tell you where they are.

They actually have such a thing as fake crab meat? What is it exactly?

Popeyes (fried chicken), Chipotle (most of the menu), Rubio's (fish tacos), Culver's (burgers), Whataburger (burgers) and In-N-Out (burgers); if you can stand the sodium and fat etc they are great fast food experiences, although most of the sides suck. Sonic's chili dog with jalapeno slices is not bad once or twice a year.

Also, if you are ever in Chicago, go to Hot Doug's: gourmet hot dogs (some made with game, duck etc) covered with homemade chutneys, gourmet cheeses, etc. They also make a classic Chicago dog and a very respectable chili dog. On Fridays and Saturdays they make fries fried in duck fat, amazing stuff. If they had a better beer list they'd be world class.

If you are ever in San Diego you owe it to yourself to stop and eat at one of the "'--berto" joints...they are all over the place and have myriad variations on the name - Roberto's, Alberto's, Adalberto's, etc. It's quick and greasy mexican food but there's nothing better at 3am after clubbing (most are open 24hrs).

Best thing on the menu is carne asada chips...fried tortilla chips topped with cheese, guacamole, and carne asada. Add in some hot sauce and oh boy...



Here is the carne asada chips...not from 'berto's but someplace similar in SD - oofff

Yep. The Surimi crab stick.

Aside from places already mentioned an excellent northwest addition is Muchas Gracias, a god send to starving highschool students with only 25 min. to eat lunch where you can get an absurd amount of greasy nasty dripping oozing burritos for less than $5 and be full for the day not to mention open 24/7.
