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.

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.

Give us your take.

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.

Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s ****

April 8, 2009

Have you had a Thickburger yet (or for those of you out west, a Charbroiled Burger)? If you haven’t, get your butt to one of these two joints the next time you want to eat some naughty grub. In my humble opinion, these particular burgers are two of the best you can get in the fast food world.

Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe ***

April 7, 2009

Most of you probably won’t know this place at all. However, anyone who has experienced the magic that is Beaver County, PA will. As I type this I am actually sitting within the boundary of the BC, and it just so happens that I went to Brighton Hot Dog Shoppe just the other day.

Burgerville ****1/2

April 7, 2009

Oh my goodness, I’ll try my best here not to gush. My first visit to Burgerville came just last month. I almost didn’t stop. See, I had eaten a small breakfast a little earlier, and it was barely 11am. But as I drove by I quickly talked myself into taking this opportunity. Let me just say that I’m glad I did.

Bojangles’ **

April 3, 2009

People love their chicken down south, and I have to admit that I would have to go with chicken as my main-meat of choice. It’s great, and it works well with just about anything. So Bojangles’ is one of a few chains who try and capitalize on this love. All with a genuine southern flavor.

Whataburger **

March 31, 2009

I just hit these guys up the other day and it wasn’t bad. The main problem here is that there is nothing that jumps out and separates them from other chains. Well, maybe one thing but I’ll get to that, and it’s not enough to make them stand out.
