Mama’s **1/2

June 23, 2009

It’s hard not to root for the underdog. These guys just recently opened-up right down the road from where I grew up. Somebody has finally put something in the spot where plenty of upstart gas stations have come and gone during the course of my life. Really, it’s just a good old fashioned snack shop.

Chick-Fil-A ***1/2

June 16, 2009

When it comes to chicken, these guys are tops. When you stack them up against all the other chicken-only chains I think they rise above the others. I don’t usually find myself jonesing for a Chick-fil-A fix, but whenever I come across one during feeding time I want to go. You can get chicken at just about every fast food chain out there so it’s not often that I want to gotsomewhere with solely clucking animals on the menu.

Juicy Burgers ****1/2

June 10, 2009

Just south of Saratoga Springs in upstate NY you can find one of the best burger joints out there. Well, in our humble opinion… We can’t think of any other joint that Juicy can’t keep up with. Just recently we hit these guys for the first time, and less than two weeks later we were back for another visit.

Five Guys **

June 2, 2009

I first encountered this joint at Washington-Dulles airport. Even though it was a little late in the day and I wasn’t particularly hungry I just had to try them out. Upon first glance of the menu I wasn’t to impressed. Kind of like In ‘n’ Out burger, there wasn’t a whole lot of variety up there.

Smithfield’s ****

May 27, 2009

I absolutely love eating down south. They just know how to do it down there. So when I recently went back to my old hood in North Carolina it was just a given that I was going to be doin’ some good eatin’. One of my definite stops was going to be Smithfield’s. Under one roof you can get a decent summation of southern grub.

Flaming Amy’s ****

May 16, 2009

Without a doubt this place crushes just about all similar competition out there. If you need a gigantic burrito, and you’re in the Wilmington, NC area then there’s really only one choice. Flaming Amy’s is hot, fast, cheap, and easy (that’s their motto). They definitely live-up to that, and it’s all delicious to boot.

Fatburger ****

April 18, 2009

Simply put, these guys kick butt (I could drop another Beastie Boys reference here). I’ve been twice in my life and both times I left beyond satisfied. I had always heard of this place but never had a chance to hit one. Just on a whim in my hotel room up in the Rockies, I looked them up online.

Dick’s *

April 17, 2009

I’ve hit these guys up twice during my several trips to the Seattle area. The first time I was pretty curious about it and the second time, well…it was a free meal with good company so I wasn’t going to complain.

Give us your take.

April 16, 2009

Those of us here at Fast Food Addict have definitely been to our share of fast food joints (although we do keep it under control, for the most part…). However, we haven’t been everywhere. There are a lot of places we just haven’t gotten a chance to hit yet.

Dairy Queen **1/2

April 15, 2009

Up until the other day I hadn’t been to a Dairy Queen for anything other than ice cream in years. I think I was in college the last time I had non-frozen food there. My recent visit was ok I guess. I had a DQ near me as a kid but it went out of business before I got my first set of wheels.
