I haven't eaten at either McD or BK in a lot of years -- can't remember the last time -- and won't, except in dire emergency. Out here in the I-5 corridor, between Albany OR and Centralia WA is a small (39 stores) local chain of fast food joints called Burgerville. They're heavily involved in local produce and sustainable agriculture. They use only Food Alliance Certified sustainably raised beef from Oregon Country Beef (no hormones, antibiotics, genetically modified grain or any animal by-products), Tillamook cheeses, locally grown fresh berries in their milkshakes, Walla Walla sweet onion rings in season. . . All of this may be well and good in a political sense, but the truth is that the pepper-bacon cheeseburger is a pretty decent fast food burger. Not something I'm supposed to be eating much of anymore, but every now and then. . .

McD's was never palatable. Never will be. BK was good in the beginning but success sent it the way of all flesh (intended). Only desparation or mental illness could send me there now. With 21st century plagues like "hep C" and worse about and the severe down trend in moral responsiblity I try not to eat out at all.

With regards to the eating of flesh, its just life. All life does it in some form or another. If you aren't willing to kill it, clean it, cook it you shouldn't be eating it. As for veagans or vegetarians or whatever they call themselves, well that's what all prey animals do. They capture and kill poor semi-defenseless little herbs that can't get up and run away so they desrve similar treatment.

Next time your sstanding before a mirror, flashing that big toothy grin, check out those little babies we call "eye teeth" or "canines". Those aren't made for munchin' bananas or asparagus. My bias runs in the same direction nature intended with those little rippers but I won't judge you if you choose to rumminate with the herd animals. Bless you. But if times get really lean...

Good Heavens Don and Clinton! You guys should drop all this hostility and admit the passion you have for one another, boiling just below the surface. . .

As for the thread. . . I think I agree with the majority here. Fast food burgers suck. I won't eat McDonalds or BK, unless I'm trapped in an airport where that's my only choice.

Best fast food in the world? The fried clams (with bellies) at Sea Swirl in Mystic, CT.
One shouldn't make a habit of eating them, but for a treat they are extraordinarily good.

Lepus Rex asked (in connections) where one could get a brain sandwich.

I was just about to give my emphatic answer when I followed the levels of links and found the site that gave the correct answer: Evansville, Indiana.

I don't get down from Indianapolis to Evansville very often any more, but brain sandwiches are a local delicacy that I always looked forward to when I was there.

The other "must-eat" in Evansville is open-pit barbecue. In those days it was at either Mac's or Wolf's. Not that sloppy mush, and not even ribs swimming in something like ketchup, either. The ribs or pit slices are (relatively) dry to the touch, but the waitress will give you a little pitcher of extra sauce (HOT or not, per your order) at the table. Wolf's also used to have barbecued mutton. Not my preference.
Evansville barbecue is quite different from, and quite superior (in my opinion) to any other barbecue I've ever found, anywhere!

All of these folks are great to listen to......the passion for the burger!!! Hilarious at times and just plain entertaining to watch! Next viewing on Sundance is July 28 .....check the site.

I watched an interesting documentary on the Sundance channel called 'Hamburger America'.

There was a burger there in Milwaukee called the butter burger. I still think that's healthy for you than any burger from a fast food joint.

Okay, just keep on believing that. But I've traveled sufficiently to know that although they try to claim they are, not all chain fast-food places are the same in terms of quality. Perhaps you should get out of Windsor now and then and see something of the world.

What you're saying is not a matter of actual knowledge, it's pure assumption. Some people call that "faith."

Okay, I'll buy that.

Now, one might make the erroneous assumption that because I find Burger King hamburgers not just palatable but much preferable to other fast-food hamburgers is because I really don't know much about the full range of hamburger quality, and that I can't really recognize a bad hamburger when I encounter one. Well, in the article I posted above, I think I've indicated fairly well that I do know a good—really good—hamburger when I encounter one. Anyone who ate at the Hasty Tasty or Bob Murray's Doghouse may denigrate them as a matter of humor (such as referring to the Hasty Tasty as the "Nasty Tasty"), or some sort of pseudo-sophisticated pose, denigrating hamburgers in general because they much prefer filet mignon (well, who wouldn't? But, of course, they can't afford it). In any case, the verdict of nutritionists that I have cited above cannot simply be dismissed if one wants to be realistic about the matter.

I do indeed know really bad hamburgers. I have faced the very nadir of hamburgerdom

While going through my files, I encountered a section of the article I posted above which I had excised from the article on the advise of a friend of mine who was worried about the possibility of a libel suit because I tended to be a bit unkind about the fare served by the Boeing food service when I worked at Billy Boeing's Kite Factory some decades ago. Well, in those intervening decades, the food service, an independent outside contractor, not an actual division of the Boeing Airplane Company, has gone out of business. "How strange," I say to myself, with a wry smile. Besides, a plaintiff can make a charge of libel stick only if it can be proven that what the defendant wrote was untrue. And even at this late date, I'm quite sure I could find many witnesses to substantiate the veracity of what I wrote.

And what I wrote lies just below. In the original draft, it was between when I returned from Denver and my discussion of Bob Murray's Doghouse.
####

               I worked as a production illustrator for the Boeing Airplane Company from January 1966 to March 1970. I quickly learned to bring my own lunch rather than rely on the food service Boeing contracted.
               First, you had to stand in line, sometimes for most of the forty minutes that Boeing allowed you for lunch. Often, by the time you finally got past the cash register, you had to eat on the run, dashing back to your drawing table before the whistle blew.
               Second, there was the food itself. The sandwiches had been stored under refrigeration for Lord knows how long, and the fillings -egg salad, tuna salad, chicken salad, ham and cheese, whatever -all had that same flat "I've recently been chipped out of a 250,000-year-old glacier" flavor, and the bread tasted like soggy cardboard. There were small bags of things like potato chips, tortilla chips, and cheese puffs; and dessert items like Twinkies, Ho-Hos, and cupcakes, and a selection of candy bars; but everything was overpriced.
               Of course, one could opt for a hamburger. But I wouldn't advise it.
               The hamburgers were laid out in neat rows in the drawer of a large stainless steel warming oven whose heat was provided by flickering pale blue flames from several cans of Sterno. Each hamburger was packaged in a waxed paper sandwich bag. Beads of greasy moisture cling to the inside of the waxed paper. This was why people called them "sweatburgers."
               They were plain:   patty and bun only. The patties were oddly uniform. About three and a half inches in diameter and half an inch thick; as precisely disk shaped and sharp edged as a hockey puck, they looked like they'd all been sawed off the same cylinder. They may well have been. They were covered with small, gray bubbles and greasy globules.
               Any condiments you wanted, you had to add yourself, but mustard and ketchup were all that was available. First, you discovered that you had to shake the nearly empty containers and coax the contents to come out. Then you found yourself holding up a line of rushed and very impatient co-workers as you stood there making rude noises with plastic squeeze bottles.
               Despite its precise appearance and crisp looking edges, when you bit into it, the tactile feedback was all wrong. Your teeth and jaws met little or no resistance. There was no sensation of your teeth breaking through the soft crust of a fresh bun, none of the firm but yielding substance characteristic of a hamburger patty. It was like biting into a mush sandwich.
               I theorize that this lack of cohesion had two causes:
               First, the meat. It was undoubtedly some inexpensive commercial hamburger mix, further diluted with a mixture of cereal or stale bread crumbs and a small quantity of chopped onion. There may have been other ingredients, but sometimes it's best not to inquire.
               Second, this meat-flavored mush-cake obviously held together adequately enough while it was being cooked and placed in the bun. But then, the assembled sandwich was wrapped in a waxed paper bag and placed in the drawer of a warming oven. There, it resided for an indefinite period while it basted itself in its own grease.
               How did it taste? You don't want to know.
               One of these was enough. I started bringing my lunch.

####

Respectfully submitted for your amusement and amazement.

Thanks for posting the link, Bill D. I checked out Washington State and noted the citation of Dick's Drive-In as a good place for burgers. There's a Dick's Drive-In (actually, it's a "walk-up") just a few blocks from where I live, and I've consumed a fair number of their burgers. I concur. They are good. In terms of ingredients, they're top rate. BUT--they often let the burgers sit in a warming oven for too long, and sometimes their burgers lack the flavor that the fresher burgers dispensed at Burger King a few blocks down the street (now closed, unfortunately), albeit they MAY be made of ingredients which might not be as good as those in Dick's.

where to get good burgers

I found that page doing a search on "Jack's North High Carryout" in Wichita ,Kansas. The place was in business when I moved near there in 1953, and is still in business. They used to pay extra for their meat and, at one time, would not allow Ketchup in the place. "pickle, mustard & onion" was it. You could get chili or cheese on it, but that was a small % of business. (no seating...room for maybe 8-10 people to stand). Small graveled parking lot.....while I was there, a McDonalds open right across the street from Jack's, but "Jack" (about Jack #5, I think) said it didn't affect him at all. The McDonald's is now gone.

I probably eat about five or six burgers a year, usually from Burger King or Jack-in-the-Box. Not as a steady diet. I find them quite tasty, but granted, not as good as hamburgers used to be. I don't seriously think they'll do me much harm. I'll be 75 on my next birthday, which is a week from this coming Monday. My weight is right where it should be (actually, I'm a bit slender for my height, but that's fine with me). My pulse is a pretty steady 72 a minute (depending on strenuousness of activity, of course) and the last time my blood pressure was taken (a few months ago), it was 128 over 72.

There is the story of actor Charles Laughton, who used to get together with friends on Sunday afternoons to have a few beers and play cards. Some hardnosed bluestocking neighbor complained to the police, invoking some local blue-law about drinking and gambling on The Lord's Day. Laughton and his friends were convicted and fined (no big deal—about like a parking ticket). Before he levied the fine, the judge, a prissy little twit, felt it incumbent upon himself to give Laughton a moral lecture. He ranted on for about fifteen minutes, saying that Laughton, as a public figure and prominent member of the community, ought to set a better example. As Laughton stood before the bench listening to the judge pontificate, he looked a bit like a schoolboy being reprimanded by the headmaster. But when the judge finally ran out of steam, Laughton, in his best Shakespearean voice, intoned like Falstaff :     "Because Mary is pure, must I be denied my cakes and ale?"

If you don't like 'em, don't eat 'em. By the way, Clinton, how many cigarettes do you smoke a day?
