Jack in the Box

The so-called food truck sandwiches at JIB earlier this year were just terrible! This Banh Mi thing was such a hot mess. Fortunately the Pannido is out now which really impressed me.


Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen

Outstanding Cajun surf & turf box thing at Popeye’s in Mira Mesa! So glad they’re not in Ramona otherwise I’d probably weigh 300 pounds. Seriously, one of the best fast food places around.

Five Guys

Probably one of the best fast food burgers I’ve ever put in my mouth!

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

Without a doubt, Freddy’s is my new favorite fast food restaurant! My first time out I tried their Original Double Patty Melt! Two outstanding steak burger patties, Swiss cheese & grilled onions on toasted rye bread. I think the biggest standout for me are their remarkably thin patties. It makes for the perfect charred surface area to meat ratio.

Taco Bell

Tasty chicken rolled tacos at the Bell! Don’t think they’re on the menu anymore…

Taco Bell

This naked egg taco thing is probably the biggest culinary abomination I’ve ever been served at Taco Bell!

Panda Express

One of my favorite fast food Asian restaurants has always been Panda Express. I’m very predictable with my two item combos. Always orange chicken and chow mein, plus the wild card. This time I had the Beijing Beef and it was outstanding.

Taco Bell

I love a good wet burrito and have had many throughout SoCal over the years. When I discovered that the Bell had a smothered burrito, I had to try it. It was surprisingly tasty! I’d recommend ordering this but I don’t think it’s on their menu anymore.

This so-called Brisket Burger at JIB was surprisingly good!

Taco Bell

Dinner recently at the Bell; finally tried the Doubledilla! I wasn’t quite sure how to pronounce it so it left me, and likely the cashier somewhat embarrassed. It’s got a double portion of grilled marinated steak, creamy jalapeno sauce and a 3 cheese blend, all grilled up in a flour tortilla. Chicken was also an option. Either is only $4.99. I requested it “double-pressed” which crisps up the tortilla a little more and really melts that cheese. One of the best things I’ve had at Taco Bell. Served with chips and a surprisingly tasty salsa.
