    We have a Culver's close by that I've been meaning to try out. Any suggestions?


    Good shakes and cheese curds. The burgers are okay, don't really know much about the rest of their food. Seems like a slightly "higher end" fast food place.

    I know the Catholics love that place because of their dedication to producing a good whitefish sandwich every Friday during lent.

    Subway/Jimmy Johns/Quiznos/Schlotzsky's is an abortion of epic proportions.

    Anybody here tried Potbelly's. I always tell people it's what Quiznos would be like, if it were any good. Whenever I have to fly through Chicago I make a point of flying through Midway just so I have an excuse to stop by the Potbelly's in the terminal.

    McDonald's eggs are about the only real food product in there, man. [​IMG] They're just cooked in ring molds so they're less likely end up on your crotch when you hit a bump in your hybrid Escalade/Tahoe/Excursion.

    True, but the folded egg that is on the McGriddle (McGirdle) is from a milk carton like container and cooked in a mold.

    If you see one open for breakfast...stop at Popeyes. Their chicken and egg biscuits are the shit. I think, however, it is only at airports where they are open for Breakfast.

    Potbelly's is decent.

    have never had Five Guys but would probably find it overrated as well.
    It is. See below. I used to eat fast food EVERYDAY in college. We had a McDonalds across from campus and a Wendy's a short drive away. I'd eat two meals, one at dinner time, and another at like 2AM (I woke up around noon for 12:50 classes, and went through to about 6). I'd always order a Big Mac (2 if they were doing the 2fer a dollar deals), two cheeseburgers, supersize fries and coke, and a McFlurry (sometimes I'd add a chicken sandwich or if it was lent a Filet o Fish). If Wendy's had their Bacon Cheddar Classic I'd hit them for 2 of those and a few 99cent nuggets with a frosty. I'd eat that, and be stuffed until like 1AM, when all that was open was shitty Chinese. I'd get boneless BBQ spare ribs, dumplings and egg rolls by 2 AM, hit the sack between 3 and 4. I always wondered why I was a fat bastard in college, and why I had the shits so often...never touch the shit now. The last fast food I had was 5 Guys the day my son was born (across from the hospital and hadn't eaten in 24 hours) and I had to see what all the fuss was about. It's basically a glorified Wendy's, with a few more condiment options. Nothing worth writing about. However, some of my best memories revolve around McDonalds. My grandfather (he passed when i was 8) would always pick me up at noon from Nursery School-was a half day program) and would occasionally take me to the SI Mall to have McDonalds with him. He'd get me a quarter pounder with cheese, cut it in half and be so proud of me when I finished it (can't remember if he ate the other half, or if I did). But it was our time, and I still remember it fondly.

    Went to five guys with my parents. We decided to split some fries. Since we were noobs, we ordered a large fry and a regular cajun fries. When got a massive brown sack filled with fries we realized we had made a mistake. Insane how much they give you

    after they fill your fries container they dump another boatload into the paper bag.

    five guys isn't anything magical. it's just a good burger with a boatload of fries.

    are the fries any good though? if they're not good, an extra bag of them is near useless.

    google image search of five guys shows me that five guys can't be anything special, at all. It's like the very sheltered in America just discovered pickled jalapeno rings on burgers and they have a new god.

    It's a decent fast food burger. So yeah, not anything special really. It's only good instore also. They wrap the thing in foil so the burger gets steamed and extra messy by time you get home if you take it to go.

    the fries are pretty good. nothing mind boggling. they're idaho potatoes twice fried in peanut oil. crunch good creamy texture inside. it's not like handcut fries fried in duck fat

    dude how can you honestly judge a burger from pictures you found on google image. i feel like the only thing you can give it a ding on is the somewhat thin patties that are well done. still quite juicy imo.

    again not mind boggling, but if you've never been exposed to good burgers five guys is a good first exposure

    I like the cajun fries more than the burger. The fries + vinegar = great.

    I think people love Five Guys just because they offer a bunch of toppings, which supposedly make the burger "better."

    I wasn't too impressed by the burger, tbh.
