I saw a commercial for Arby’s Bourbon brisket sandwich last night. Has anyone had that?
Ours was a seriously dumbed down mini version now i feel ripped off!! I feel like i would have been VERY into that as a kid.
I recall a few sad bean soft tacos from an unfortunate road trip through bumblefu*ky towns. I am certain there was a lot of ketchup involved. They didn’t have any avocado back then.
I’m sorry but that ad makes no sense. Steak, beef and chicken with “Kentucky bourbon “ bbq sauce. Mutton and Pork seem to be missing in action.
I have no clue. I had a “few” brews in me last night and I saw the commercial. It got me craving brisket. I haven’t been to Arby’s in probably 3 years to be honest. I just know I like brisket, bourbon and onion rings so it seemed tempting lol. The combo seemed good on paper.
On a side note, there is a local spot making cherry moonshine BBQ sauce. This stuff is good! I should see if I can ask the owner and send you out a jar. In return you can send me out one of those west coast ciders or western sauces
On the topic of the world’s shittiest buffets, does anyone remember sizzler?
Careful where you tred now CJ, I was a cook at the Ponderosa (sizzler copy-Cat) in the Ocean County mall circa 1987.
I do remember Sizzler… I don’t think it is dead yet.
We still have one in Medford. I’ve never been.
Shit, we’re getting a NEW Ihop, a 5 guys, a Cracker Barrel and more in a new lifestyle center. If it’s passé everywhere else, we’re bound to finally get in on the hype 10 years later.
Life in a backwater has its advantages.
Cracker Barrel is interesting.
We’re the midway point (sort of ) on I-5 with a tremendous amount of traffic, but people here think small, no grandiose dreams for the most part. We’re isolated and thrive on it.
I-5? We have a I-5 here too. Anyway. I was introduced to Cracker Barrel when I lived in Georgia. It has its charm as a chain. Certainly more interesting than Applebees or Outback in my opinion. I can imagine myself driving out just to have a little Cracker Barrel. I won’t do that for Applebees.
I have family from rural Virginia so as a child visiting grandma meant a trip filled with deeply fried foods and vegetables. With that said Cracker Barrel’s do offer a taste of that childhood experience(s) for me. Their country fried chicken, steak, chicken n dumplings, fried oakra and collard greens are all welcome reminders of grandma’s cooking.
This is the one for me. I have never had a Southern fried okra until I went to Cracker Barrel.
We always stop for food in Ashland (though I miss Munchies!) - been a few years since I’ve made that run north, though. Recall Greenleaf deli being good.
I had excellent Indian in Medford, but not at a restaurant: rinky-dink hotel off I5, middle of the night, last room in town kind of deal. Walked into the lobby and a couple of members of the family that owned the place were eating. I’d not stopped since maybe Redding, not eaten since Sac, and was famished. Offered the men $20 for a plate of food and they delivered. It was amazing!
To each their own of course - but I’ve always thought Taco Bell was disgusting. How can the sauce be simultaneously clumpy with day-glo orange grease, and yet acridly acidic at the same time? Horrible. Of course any taco truck anywhere has a superior taco for 2 or 3 bucks - but if we’re talking chain fast food Jack in the Box tacos were the best bet as I recall.
When one’s vegetarian, and on a road trip, it was a safe choice some 20 years ago; times have changed and there are more options now.
That said, I’d happily try their food again.
Interesting…similar to the new vegetarian burger that Mc Donald’s is coming out with (maybe it’s already out??) I would have issues trusting a meat based fast food place to prepare anything vegetarian. I guess depending on your level of strictness to your abiding by a vegetarian diet, I just don’t trust the workers.
There is an element of trust, yes. At least with the 7 Layer Burrito, it was not supposed to contain meat - not like asking them to leave it off - so if they were following the assembly/instruction card, in theory it was safe.
That does look tasty!
