Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

Outstanding Chicago Dog at Freddy’s in Yuma! I don’t order these often because they’re such a hot mess and hard to eat. All of the contrasting flavors and textures though are just extraordinary.


Jack in the Box

Not sure if it’s still on their menu, but these so-called ribeye burgers at JIB are outstanding! I think there’s three varieties to choose from. I ordered the one with blue cheese, grilled onions, etc. Pretty top-shelf for a fast food burger. This was the Rancho Bernardo location, so your mileage may vary.

Taco Bell

One of my favorite things to order at the Bell for breakfast are these tasty mini skillet bowl things! Tremendous value at only a buck and super tasty. Made with scrambled eggs, taters, nacho cheese and pico de gallo. I always have them add either seasoned ground beef or steak to make it a perfect meal.


A SoCal institution that never disappoints! The venerable Double Double is consistently excellent!


The Spicy Italian is probably the only thing I can tolerate at Subway anymore. Much has been said about the length of their bread. Honestly I couldn’t care less if my bread is 12″, 10″, or 9″! As long as I get 12″ worth of meat, cheese and mayonnaise!

Five Guys

Five Guys is more than just great burgers! I recently enjoyed this outstanding grilled all-beef frank with bacon, jalapeños, etc. The slather of mayonnaise and grilled onions made it very reminiscent of Tijuana back in the day! 😅

Five Guys

Outstanding double cheeseburger with grilled onions and jalapeños at Five Guys in Poway! Definitely one of the best fast food burgers I’ve put in my mouth.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

Without a doubt, Freddy’s is one of my favorite fast food restaurants! This time I ordered Freddy’s Original Double! Two outstanding steak burger patties, cheese, mustard, onion & pickle on a toasted bun. I think the biggest standout for me are their remarkably thin patties. It makes for the perfect charred surface area to meat ratio. They also have two delicious types of fry sauce that you can serve yourself out of a giant squirt dispenser.

Panda Express

Orange chicken and chow mein will always be a constant with me. For my third item this time I tried the Shanghai Angus Steak. One of these premium choices where they charge extra but still very tasty. Easy to eat around those hideous mushrooms, too.

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.
