Our local Sonic sucks (along with most other places)....due to poor work ethic amongst management and crew, but even the food quality itself is way below what it was several years ago.

I think most chain food joints are hamstrung by corporate suck....
Thankfully we have several locally-owned joints that equal (in some cases beat) the chains on price and far outdo them on quality and quantity for the price.

I hate these fast food places, but find myself grabbing them on the go when needed. I don't know if it is national, regional or just this ugly locale, but I find that Burger King is trying to save money on the toppings: skimpy lettuce, one small thin slice of tomato and barely any onions. Both BK and McD are hardly putting anything on their burgers. To top it off, these workers, who are demanding over $15/hr (our area they are starting over $16 and climbing), never played with building blocks as children. They can't put a simple stack of ingredients one on top of the other.

Not just your area....it's everywhere that I've been in the GA/FL/AL region at least.

As a side note, (it's not 'fast food' but it is hot and ready) if you're traveling and have access to a Buc-ee's, stop there. Good pork and brisket sandwiches along with other types of food. Good coffee too.

The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

The stupidity of this is that in our area a Whopper meal costs $12. I can go to the local sports bar type setting and get a larger burger, more quality toppings, on a good roll, with a salad and seasoned fries for about $3 or $4 more. Oh, I'm getting ripped off, because I still need to buy my beverage of choice. The fast food industry only caters to the busy in an unexpected rush, and the ignorant.  I apologize for my rudeness if this is the food of choice for you, but it is the way I see it.

I stopped at Hardee's today and got a Frisco burger.  Not bad.  Waayyy better than anything from Burger King, McDonalds or Wendy's.

You ain't wrong at all.

Perfect example was our lunch today. We went by a locally-owned favorite joint today and grabbed a couple of chicken plates. Each one was a 'lunch special' consisting of four chicken strip which were large enough to make the equivalent of two whole breast pieces. Also came with coleslaw, heaping serving of fries and two pieces of bread and a drink. The cost with tax was $8.64 per plate. Now a place we used to go before the quality dropped is a regional chain called Zaxby's (I know I've mentioned this on another thread, heck, maybe this one....I'm getting old) has a chicken plate with three strips, fries and small drink with one bread that is $8.50 before tax. It would take all three strips on the Zaxby's plate to make one piece on the local plate.

I ate two pieces and some fries at lunch, and as I type this am having the balance for supper. Two meals for the price of one.....and it was hot....and the servers were polite.

Peg, you're sounding old! Go out for lunch, bring home leftovers for dinner, watch Wheel, and go to bed. Speculating on the ending, but probably not far off.

I hate Wheel of Fortune......  8)

Westerns playing in the background on the TV pretty much all the time. Once I hit the hay I usually peruse my subscribed youtube channels on my tablet (such as Wilson Combat, Warrior Poet Society, Vicegrip Garage, Corey Wheat Customs, Tom Bailey Racing etc, etc.) until I get sleepy (usually closer to 2 AM)....  ;D  8)

I've always been a late-nighter.... which is why I worked graveyard so many years as a preference. If I can get four hours of straight sleep, I'm good for the day. Old habits die hard.
