Local Best-of Awards

Postby Coppermine » Sun Oct 15, 2006 1:03 pm

I hate where I live; here is the "Best-Of" list out of the local newspaper from my locality. Are your areas as inept as mine?

Best Burger: McDonalds
Best Seafood: Red Lobster
Best Subs/Sandwiches: Subway
Best Pizza: Pizza Hut
Best Buffet: Ryan’s
Best Family Restaurant: McDonalds
Best Coffee: Starbucks (plenty of great local coffee shops; Starbucks opened just this year)
Best Fast Food: McDonalds (completing the bad-taste, low-brow trifecta)

Am I just snooty? This makes me want to move away immediately.

Best burger McDonalds? :-?


Either McDonalds paid the paper or you have a serious lack of food sources.

You forgot the best Mexican food category and the winner is...Taco Bell! :-D Or does this place between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh lack a Taco Bell? Eh, you're not missing much anyway. :-b

Taco Bell? :-P ..that pretty much says it all for me. Never liked it as a kid, and with some of the stories I've heard I'll stick with my usuals. ;-D :-o

Anyway, like any big metropolitan area, you'd have to read the Zagat guidebook front to back on what stands out as the best restaurants in town, especially in L.A. There must be hundreds of outstanding authentic Chinese restaurants in the L.A. area alone for example. Another example would be Best Burger in town. In L.A., we're famous for the birthplace of In-N-Out Burger and McDonald's, but there are awesome burgers at The Apple Pan, Father's Office, Fatburger, and Tommy's, to name a few. Obviously, small-market towns will pale in comparison when it comes to the selection of restaurants in those areas, but your area sounds like a ghost town. :-b

Yeah, Taco Bell is dreadful. I remember growing up that one of my aunts, who happens to be a cheapskate, would pick me up from school and give me these awful 99 cent soft tacos for snack. The Taco Bell around the corner near the place I grew up was notorious for food poisoning incidents and so, when I go out for Mexican food, Taco Bell is an afterthought. L.A. is littered with cheap taco stands and you can buy one for the same price, where the tacos are light years better than Taco Bell. ;-D

I remember when I went to California two summers ago, my family that was there would always talk about In-N-Out and how great it was. So we finally went there one time, and personally I thought it was terrible. They said it was the best burger you would ever find, and personally you cant find more than a hundred better places here in Toronto. Dissapointed, but learned that we have better burgers here in Canada. :-D ;-D

Those big companies are paying people to vote, end of story. Hardees has won "best burger" in St. Louis (and a number of other cities) ever since they revamped their burgers. Nobody with taste buds could vote for fast food place as "best burger", unless they're being paid. And this coming from someone who eats a ton of fast food by choice.
