Now Cleveland has better food options than NYC?

i wouldn't say that, impossible to compete with much if anything on a coast....but we are very under rated. Could eat out every day for a year and barely make a dent. I'd put us up against just about any inland city.
I can vouch for this. I have traveled a lot of travel to Cleveland and it is a great food town. So many great restaurants.

I will be making my 7th trip to CA this year next week. It will be my 7th opportunity to not eat INO. Pretty pumped.

Speaking of Cookout...we have a lot of them, never been to one. Worth the trip to try it?

For $4.50 (combo) pick between burger/grilled chicken breast/bbq, get a chicken wrap, get a bacon wrap, and a coke float. You can upgrade that float to a shake for a buck. It' really enough food to feed two. Best deal in town and the food isn't half bad.

I don't know why someone didn't think of a bacon wrap sooner. First one I got had close to 6 pieces of bacon in it.

Not a big fan of the burgers, but for the price not bad. Plus, they at least have the chili/slaw option which is rare here in stupid VA (and 5G ignores the chili/slaw crowd).

The fries are surprisingly good for a place that cheap.

Agree on the bacon wrap. Great idea.

I never get the fries. They kind of skimp on them. Bacon/chicken wrap >> 24 fries. Depending on location, sometimes they crammed those wraps with 3 nice sized tender pieces.

Like you said, the burgers aren't bad for the price. Add in grilled onions and most any burger will taste good.

Wait....you can get "wraps" as a "side"? What about a hot dog or corn dog?? That'd be :moneybag: and a bargain no matter how you slice it.

Wraps count as sides, dogs don't. I'll take my son…burger/coke float for him, two wraps for me. We're both full and out the door for roughly $4.50. A couple of the Cook-Outs offer promo milk shakes for 99 cents. You get the flavor of the day, but it's a good milk shake.

You are correct. Also $4.25 for a tray at this location. Best deal in fast food.

That 4x4 looks damned good. I always get a 3x3 when I go.

The cool thing about the secret menu is every employee knows all of it. At McD's the guy at the drivethru usually can't even name all the McNugget sauces.

Also I like how they keep something like peppers in stock all the time even though it's secret menu and rarely ordered.

Probably my best I&O experience was when they brought the truck to work. Way too much inventory for the amount of employees we have. They were giving out double doubles left and right. I went home with 5

Someone lied in here earlier. Fudruckers does NOT have unlimited fries. When I told the cashier I was involved in a pretty intense online debate about counter service hamburgers on a fantasy football message board, and someone mentioned that they have bottomless fries, she laughed at me. Probably not about the fries.

Delicious burgers and cheese curds served by cute little Midwestern girls. :thumbup:

Culver's really probably just too classy and above all the mudslinging for this thread.

Pretty simple actually to do.

Cut up the spuds into fry size gems and washed them off.Then placed them in a airtight bowl filled with cold water for 3 hours or so in the fridge.Got the deep fryer up to 325 degrees(once close to temp I drained the fries and patted them dry),cooked them until soft on the inside(about 5 minutes) and then removed them from the heat and into a dish with paper towels to soak up oil(about 10 minute period to wait),while waiting got the oil back up to 350 degrees and then cooked them until golden brown and crispy(3 to 4 minutes tops but could go longer,keep a close eye on them for how you want them done).Once done they went straight into a dish to then be salted and seasoned as wanted.

If you do a large batch of fries I suggest doing them in smaller loads for better results.

Peanut or Vegetable oil is what I use.

ETA:Soaking is key-this removes the starch, keeps the potatoes from sticking together, and eliminates the sugars that prevent the potatoes from achieving maximum crispness

Of course. And I shell them by flexing my bicep with the peanut in my elbow.

Finally got into DQ, had a bliazzrd for lunch, kept it healthy... Choc, cookie dough, sprinkles, caramel - Delicious! Didn't eat the food, but it didn't look all that good while I was standing there. Now that they aren't just giving #### out, the crowds have thinned - I anticipate DQ in Manhattan being a ghost town within a few months while the FG next door will continue to prosper.

I think DC will do well. They have a nice niche, in addition to their desserts. Don't they have chicken fingers with country gravy?

DQ has a $5 Lunch from 11-4 (I think). A cheeseburger, 3-piece chicken strips, or chili cheese dog with some fries, a drink, and a sundae. Tasty and cheap!

I like Five Guys. But at the end of the day, they are just an average burger with some nifty toppings. Aside from the grilled onions and mushrooms, and the sauces, most of them are pretty standard. The most impressive thing about the fries are the sacks of potatoes stacked around the place. I guess if you really like potatoes, it's the place to stuff yourself with them. Five Guys just isn't impressive enough to be exclusive. :shrug:
