The main problem with McDonalds - apart from the ubiquity of its horrid, plasticky outlets, that is, is the BLANDNESS of the food. Quite apart from any concerns about its nutritional value, it tastes, to me, of NOTHING - a mouthful of cotton wool would be tastier!
Nevertheless, even if they served the most sublime, gourmet dishes ever, I still wouldn't eat there - I just can't stand the thought of giant, monopolistic mega-corporations taking over the world ... local is best, down with mega-corps!!!

Just in case anyone is really interested,

I've been a hamburger aficionado all my life, and for the most part, the hamburger has fallen on hard times. But—and this is my conclusion after much careful research—between McDonald's and Burger King, it's Burger King by a country mile. Anyone with taste buds should be able to tell the difference easily. [Okay, Zippy, I know what you're going to say, but just stow it for a bit. Read and learn.]

I had come to this conclusion a long time back. But about a year ago, I saw a television program, the title of which (if I recall correctly) was "On the Floor." Each episode of this program dealt with sending an upper-level executive of the company of the week to work for a week "on the floor" as a peon in the company. One of the things that was notable about the program was that the exec invariable came back with a notebook full of changes that needed to be made, more often than not improving both working conditions and the product or service. Sort of like a general finding out what's really going on on the front lines.

I might point out that these programs were not company "puff jobs." On a few of these programs, a number of incidental things were revealed about the company in question that were not very complimentary.

One of these programs dealt with the Burger King chain. The exec wound up working in a Burger King doing various jobs: working in the kitchen, handing trays out the window to passing cars, talking to customers, talking with the other employees—and learning and taking notes. What was particularly interesting to me as an occasional customer was the procedures that they followed to make sure the customer got a decent hamburger.

They put a great deal of importance on being able to anticipate the demand at various times during the day, and the goal (rule) was that the order should be handed to the customer within a minute and a half of the order being placed. Burgers were made up in advance, according to the estimate. The patty (a better grade than most fast-food places used) was cooked and placed in a fresh bun, then put into a warming oven. When the order came in, the sandwich (meat and bun only) was removed from the warming oven and the various fixin's were added according to the customer's order, e.g., "Tomato, lettuce, ketchup, no onion, no mayo," or whatever combination the customer wanted, packaged, and delivered—the job took maybe half a minute. The burger was customized according to the customer's wishes, using all fresh ingredients.

At McDonald's (and most other fast-food places), I've never been asked how I wanted my burger, they just handed it too me.

Now—here's where the BIG difference comes in:    the burger (bare meat and bun) sits in the warming oven for a maximum of twelve (12) minutes, and if, in that time, it doesn't go out as an order, it is thrown out! They have determined that any longer than that in the warming oven and the meat tends to get soft, the bun begins to get soggy, and the whole thing loses flavor. It turns into what's sometimes referred to as a "sweatburger."

McDonald's in a pinch. But I've been handed many "sweatburgers" out the window of a McDonald's. I'd put Jack-in-the-Box a fairly close second to Burger King. Wendy's . . . isn't bad. I have never got what I would call a gourmet hamburger from Burger King (that, after all, is not what fast-food places are all about), but I've never been handed one that wasn't fresh and tasty.

I don't indulge all that often, but when I buy a hamburger, it had better be pretty decent or I won't be back.

It may depend a bit on where you live, so your mileage may vary.

Don,

Have you eaten a hamburger at Zeke's up in Startup (maybe Goldbar)? The one in the railroad caboose? I think Bob Nelson recently confirmed that it is still there. I used to stop there on my way back from climbs in the Stevens Pass area back in the 70s and 80s. Freshly made, big hand-shaped patties of real meat, wonderful real food. They also made their milkshakes with real fruit. You'd have to stop sucking on a strawberry shake to pull the straw out and eat the berry chunk off the end before drinking more through the straw.

No, Maggie, I can't say that I've ever been to Zeke's, although I've definitely heard of the place. Gotta go sometime.

One of my favorite places in Seattle was a drive-in, but not part of a chain:   Green Lake Jake's, right across from the lake, up by where East Green Lake Way branches off and heads northwest to intersect with Aurora Ave. Oversized bun, oversized patty, and they'd fix it any way you wanted it. Cheese, bacon, tomato, onion (sliced or diced), lettuce, pickle, miscellaneous condiments. You could stack up a regular "Dagwood." Great fries, too. A whole potato's worth, sliced thick, not skinny like McDonald's fries.

Great shakes, too. Not extruded out of a machine. They used real milk, ice cream, syrup or whatever, and mixed it in one of those big cans they'd stick on the mixing machine, then, if you were going to have it there, they'd serve it in a big glass, or if you were taking it out, in a big, fairly solid paper cup.

Many a summer afternoon or early evening, Barbara and I would descend on the place, then take our booty down to the lake shore.

Alas, Green Lake Jake's is no more. It was demolished some years back and an office building now resides on the site. (Sigh)

Folks who are recommending alternatives like Subway (no quarrel with that, very good!) or just eating fruit (or tofu), I'm afraid just aren't getting it. Trying to find a good hamburger in these days when people think a hamburger is merely something to throw out a window at passing cars is like the Quest for the Holy Grail.

Don Firth

P. S. If this keeps up, I might be tempted to post a fairly long article I wrote on hamburgers several years ago. It covers everything from the Boeing food service (retch!!) to the Hasty Tasty (smelled like a greasy spoon, but the burgers were superb!), and includes a side-trip to Denver (they didn't know what a chiliburger is down there!!).

If it has to be a fast food burger, I go with In 'N Out Burger, but it's a Western states chain, so you might not be near an outlet. Still, it doesn't anywhere compare with a good restaurant or home made burger.

I agree with guest DB about the blandness of McDonald's. They are P.R. geniuses to make their burgers #1 in sales.

Burger King, out of the two. And, for all of you naysayers, it's the same garbage you get when when you cook it at home. The same cruelly-produced beef, dragged through the same shit in the same filthy slaughterhouse. The entire Earth is poisoned, and you'll never escape. So eat some crappy food, why don't ya?

Anyways, for those who want to be more like me, here's my top five corporate whore fast food restaurants:

1. Tied for Culver's (a mainly upper-Midwestern chain, but growing) and Wendy's. With their "butterburgers" and fried cheese curds, Culver's is a huge part of my "dead by 40" plan. And great fries. Wendy's, I'll usually get a "classic single" with onions, nothing else on it. Godly.

2. White Castle. Yeah, yeah, screw you. It's good for you.

3. Burger King. Their fries suck, but their "Whoppers" are like heroin. Big, juicy, fatty heroin. Mmmmmm.

4. Dairy Queen. I don't know why, but the quality of Dairy Queen burgers varies vastly from location to location. But when they're good, they take me back to my childhood, when I'd eat at the Minnesota Zoo DQ. Which may explain why the smell of dolphin-water and monkey-piss makes me strangely hungry... Perhaps I've said too much.

5. McDonalds. Actually, there's about five other places ahead of McDonalds, but I wanted to bitxch about their food, so... So, there's the food, which is horrible, even by fast food standards. The "sweatburger" thing, and all that. But they put all of their horrid little sandwiches in boxes. I mean, what the fuck? Cold food that falls all over your shirt. Nice.

Oh, and I really want to try an In-N-Out burger, someday, if only for the Lebowski connection.

Oh, c'mon, Clinton. Unless you're raising and slaughtering the cows yourself, you only know where they tell you your food is from. I know farmers who sell to people who, like you, prefer to buy from "people they know" and "places they trust," and it's the same stuff. Filthy, evil, horrid meat. Or perhaps I'm wrong. Perhaps up in Canada, there's a wonderful cow retirement home... Where elderly cows sleep on feather beds, eat bon-bons all day, die (with their cow families at their bedsides) of natural causes, and then are magically turned into wholesome piles of ground beef by pixies. Nah. It's blood and shit and terror, and it's the same meat.

And it's delicious.

I mean there are a lot of health and social problems linked to junk food but that list pales in comparison next to the one linked to smoking. Geeziz man, destroying your body through lifestyle choice is my specialty! But then again, you might get run down by a Peterbilt............so if you want to walk a mile for a Camel or have a double plotcher with processed cheese....GO FOR IT!!!

I don't do either anymore but I'm day late and a dollar short. You won't quit either until it comes home to you....not just to roost but to club you with a sledge hammer repeatedly.....on a real personal level and not through lectures.

Is there anyone who thinks a Big Mac is good for them? Does anyone think that cigarettes won't give you heart and lung problems? Go for both or one or neither.....your life, your decisions!

You have to be fast to eat idiot food....



"I'd hit Subway...the food is better for you, fresher and won't make you feel like crap"

The LAST time I was in a Subway (ever!), I watched the guy before me have a stand-up argument with the server. He got eventually given what he wanted. While I was being served by another server, I watched the first server dismantle and replace the ingredients in the trays... If I hadn't been in a real hurry...



I really prefer Sushi now - and it's easy and MUCH cheaper to make it at home, exactly the way you want. Great for party food too.



I remember REAL Aussie hamburgers... individually made to order, you could even look at the uncooked patty and see just how much breadcrumbs they had put in - adding breadcrumbs was a standard English -> Aussie Tradition... now the Yanks have spoiled all that... and Aussie burgers had MORE vege matter than meat... and SLICED BEETROOT! with no Dill Pickles... very hard to find the shops now... which also used to do real 'fish & chips'...

Real burger patties were not just ground meat (and NOT the highest grade meat, the lower grades were for mince!), but had some breadcrumbs or flour (helped to bind and soak up some of the fat) and often onions and even other very small chunks of veges too.



Most amazing burger I had recently was in Toowoomba - in a strange place - 50/60s theme combo second hand junk shop, dance club floor and food bar. I had taken a friend there for her birthday present, and she thoroughly enjoyed the whole place.

The 'serving plates' were heated and folded LP records (lined with paper), which from the titles, were very appropriately used - it being a 'Rock and Roll' era theme place, all those mushy strings and crooner LPs were put to real good use! :-)

The buns were about 6-8 inches in diameter!!!! and PACKED with STUFF! I doubt even Clinton could get his mouth open wide enough to take a bite from top to bottom... :-)

Joe, I had the same experience with BK, going on 20 years ago. After a late ending course at the local branch of a college (still take a class as a Grandpa' a couple times a year), I stopped by the "King and ordered a simple Burger. I watched as rhey took one, already wrapped, from a storage unit and tossed it into a Microwave. I asked "is that my burger and what are you doing to it?" They said they were reheating it. I told them I could have gone on home and done that, the reason for stopping was not to get reheated food. They run their 'open chain broiler' several times a day and precooked all the burgers.

Have not been back since. The only way to get a decent or good burger is a privately owned joint where you will have to pay $8 - $12. I would rather do this twice a month than have a McDucks, BK, etc., twice a week.

back in the 70's my colleague & his wife travelled overseas regularly as she worked for Pan Am. If they thought the local food was not hygenic they had McDonalds as they knew there would not be any germs in it. Bland, yes, but germs, no.

Around the same time I had my only McDonalds burger. Normally I would not have eaten them, but we were at the club on a Sunday afternoon & the Bistro was closed so a couple of us went hunting food while the others kept drinking, and the only thing open was the golden arches. This was back in the prehistoric days before Sunday trading (no pubs, no grocery shops, no nuffin')

So we came back to the club with our burgers & found the rest of the mob eating steaks cooked by the barman.

Being broke (no ATMs in those days, either) I sat with my friends in the yard under the green corregated fibreglass roof, eating my sausage-mince burger on soft sugarybun, garnished with 1 teaspoon of chopped onion, 2 or 3 slices of dillpickle, & a wisp of lettuce under the greenish light. I can still see it. I have never forgotten the green burger.

I would have been better just buying a packets of chippies or peanuts from the barman.

"My point was that a home-made meat product is basically the same meat product you get at Wendy's."

Sorry Rex, can't agree with that. Our local butchers tell you where their meat is coming from, the exact farm. Some of the cows, sheep and pigs that become the meat that goes into our joints, burgers, sausages etc we drive past on the way to our Friday night session - the same is not true of the intensively-reared meat you get in the likes of McDonalds. We know our meat was reared in the countryside around the town, and it ate fresh grass and lived a happy life.

I would never eat a McDonalds - these people are taking the piss out of their customers by serving them fatty sugar-laden foods stuffed with starch. It really is crap of the highest order.

Mind you, I have been known to have the odd Burger King occasionaly, so who am I to talk?
