Fast Food


We try to avoid fast food burgers as much as possible, but tonight was one of those nights where it was just convenient to drive through Burger King on the way home.  Surprisingly, this was our first Burger King stop all year. 

I grabbed a couple of Whoppers, some fries and onion rings and brought them home.  Typical fast food.  The burgers were plopped together and messy and the onion rings had been waiting around too long.  I’m convinced the only way you can get fresh onion rings at BK is if you stand there and wait until a new batch comes up.  They just don’t have a long shelf life.   Total was $10.

Craving a burger for lunch today, so headed over to the Five Guys Burgers & Fries restaurant in Westchase.  I’ve eaten here a couple of times and remembered that the little burger is one patty (which is plenty for me), but forgot just how many fries were in a small order.

Yeah, the cup is full of fries, but so is the bag.  There were enough fries here for at least 3 people.  I can’t even imagine what a large order looks like.  Hot, fresh, and greasy, just the way fries should be.  The burger was pretty tasty too.  I got mine with mayo, lettuce, tomato, grilled onions and grilled mushrooms.  Not a lot of places offer grilled onions & mushrooms at no extra charge.  For $7, I was completely full and had a ton of fries left over.

  • We’ve been craving burgers for a while now, so we headed over to Pete & Shorty’s on Gulf to Bay.  It’s been quite a while since we’ve eaten here.  The parking lot was full, but the dining area didn’t have a lot of people in it.  They were either in the bar area or out on the deck with the live music.

    We both ordered the mushroom swiss burger with some onion straws and some tater tots.  While we were waiting for our food to arrive, we watched the fireworks in Clearwater.

    I was a happy camper.  The burgers were tasty, cooked a nice medium, and the onion straws and tater tots were yummy too.  I think this is one of the best burgers I’ve had in a long time.  Total bill was $20 and our burger craving had been satisfied deliciously.
