Hey, I’m also Taco Bell on the inside! Me and these new Dorito Loco Tacos have so much in common! They go on sale in NYC March 8th and Fast Food Nation will be celebrating at the 8th Avenue location right by UCB.

The black bun on Quick’s Darth Vader Burger is not a cool novelty. It just makes the bread look fucking burnt. Who’s working the grill back there?! Peeta Mellark?! (I’m very sorry.)
(Thanks to Chris Scott for the tip!)

If there is one thing that drives me INSANE about the 8th Floor Lounge in my college dorm is that it’s an 8th Floor Lounge in my college dorm and not a Burger King.  Luckily, the vending machine dude just starting stocking Burger King Flame Broiled Potato Snacks. Close enough!

McDonald’s revamping stores to look more upscale | USATODAY.com

“We’re not trying to be Apple,” says Max Carmona, senior director of U.S. restaurant design. “But we can be inspired by them. When you’re inside an Apple Store, you almost feel like you’re inside an iPad — and you want to stay there. We want people to walk into McDonald’s and have the same feeling.”

Click through for a full list of changes. Very interesting.

What assholes were in this focus group?! “Um, yes, we still don’t want to pay more than $1 for a double cheeseburger but we definitely want to eat it in front of a roaring fire lounging in Lazy Boys that jerk us off. Oh, and bring back that Monopoly game plz!”
Don’t blame me. I voted for Mayor McCheese.

The BK Super Seven Incher - It’ll blow your mind away.
…But also like a BK Super 5 and 1/2 Incher would be pretty good, too, right?  Like maybe you’d also buy a sorta thin, circumcised BK Super 5 and 1/2 Incher?  Uh, just curious.

I’ve been looking to get out of town for Memorial Day weekend and flights to Puerto Rico are real cheap at the moment. Now I hate doing “touristy” stuff but, if this trip comes to pass, it will definitely include a visit to Puerto Rico’s Popeyes.  As the one location to still utilize the cartoon namesake, this is a bit of an historical site.  Hopefully, the concierge will have some tips on beating the crowd.

About Me

Welcome to the Tumblr devoted entirely to life altering innovations in the fast food industry. I do not condone actually eating anything featured here because it is all unhealthy and eating unhealthy means you are a bad person. This is strictly a resource.

If you only came here for the definitive answer to the best fast food on the market: It's a sausage biscuit from McDonalds.
