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.

Church’s *1/2

May 20, 2009

“Say a prayer before going to Church’s…you’ll need it! And leave your appetite at home.” Those are the words of wisdom from GWBF. This man doesn’t say much, but when he does it often includes gems like this. GWBF and I sauntered into Church’s recently on my first night back in Wilmington, NC.

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.
