Taco Cabana bought by Californicators

Great. It’s not enough that the Californicators are moving here in great numbers now, jacking my property taxes to the point I may have to sell my house in five years thanks to their bullshit, bloated equity. Now they’ve acquired one … Continue reading

Happy National Donut Day!

Happy National Hamburger Day!

Given how much this American invention is a staple of our bloaty diet, I figured burgers would get at least a month! Before the Pandemic the burger business was going full throttle too. Not exactly what we should be doing … Continue reading

Ocean View food truck invades Austin, again!

Tempting but lobster is a temperamental thing with my stomach. I can imagine that this truck serves the meat on bread and covered in butter. If I’m wrong, please let me know what a lobster roll really is.

Need to move the Snickers over a notch

This would definitely not be a vending machine at my alma mater Marquette even though I’m sure it could’ve come in handy. Let’s face it, college students are full of hormones and not good sense. I know. I was one! While … Continue reading

Ocean View food truck invades Austin!

For those who didn’t get the reference, Ocean View is the fictional city Bob’s Burgers is set in. As for which state? I’m going to go out on a limb and say New Jersey. I’ll need to check harder on the … Continue reading

McRib is still disgusting and hard to eat

Long ago, I chose to adhere to that principle “If you’ve never seen the movie, how can you say you hate it?” when it came to film, TV and especially music. It has resulted in numerous hours and dollars I … Continue reading

Coca-Cola finally stops making Tab

Holy cow! This crap was still being made‽ (Been a while since I’ve used an interrobang.) I figured it had faded away by the Aughts with the dominance of Diet Coke and Coke Zero. Then again, how often do you … Continue reading

In time for Taco Tuesdays!

They also come in corn as well. However, I would recommend not putting in the meat while it’s still sizzling and be reasonable with the guacamole and/or sour cream, you don’t want to suffocate. Silly photo courtesy of Pee Wee … Continue reading

The side that came with the main course

So my friend Jeremy ordered fast food recently in the Netherlands. Nevermind the sandwich/burger/hot dog thing he ordered, he said it was a letdown; instead of fries, potato chips or a full serving of onion rings, he got this. Spring … Continue reading

1940: McDonald’s opens

Brothers Richard and Maurice began their restaurant which would become synonymous with America, Fast Food and crappy work (see McJob), for better or worse, on this day. If you saw their place on this day, you wouldn’t recognize it because … Continue reading

Heinz stole Hoser’s idea!

One odd habit my best friend José had in college was dipping his fries in a mix of mayonnaise and catsup/ketchup (I don’t care which). He really liked it too. He’d fill up a salad bowl with this gross concoction! … Continue reading

Whataburger sold to a Chicago interest

Since 1950, the Dobson family has kept their predominantly Texas-based burger chain privately owned. It is something they proudly display on the windows of the restaurants, “Family Owned.” Not any longer. Technically what Harmon Dobson’s offspring have done is sell … Continue reading

Extra perk from Arby’s!

After a long day of getting back into the groove of work (thank you vaccines! I’ll take your side effects over the ignorance morons are causing from withholding), I chose to get a treat from Arby’s. It may be the … Continue reading
