I saw this on the news the other day.  The biggest problem is probably all that white bread that turns directly into sugar.  As for the Double-Downs-- I was disappointed.  It was missing some of those 11 herbs and spices.  Or, maybe I just got one that tasted bland.   

KFC's (YUM Brands) headquarters is just down the road from where I live.  It looks like a replica of the White House.  I guess you can blame many here in Louisville for many of these food items.  In Louisville, these are the food companies headquartered here:  KFC and all the companies they own such as Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, Long John Silver's, A&W, and Papa John's is headquartered here.  The CEO is from here and started Papa John's here.  I believe Rally's is headquartered here, too.

I know Wendy's founder Dave Thomas worked here for the Colonel.  That is where he got the idea for Wendy's.  The Colonel sold the company but rejected stock options, because he didn't believe in them.  His secretary and many others actually ended up with more money than he due to those stock options. 

Now that I've given you all useless info, back to that sandwich.  How do you even get your mouth around that thing?  I've heard some of you can dislocated your jaws   ;D

I totally agree, Jan. Yeech.

Ted mentioned A&W - I loved their burgers as a kid and their root-beer too. We used to go to one of the old-fashioned ones where you sat in your car and a cute teenage girl in a short skirt would come up and take your order, then return with it on a tray that clipped onto the window.

If you went in the evenings, the place was always full of teenage boys in their sooped-up roadsters. Sometimes you had to wait for a parking spot because the boys would take their time eating their meal. Good times - takes me back.

An A&W root-beer float was to die for. ~sigh~

I would venture to guess about 70 percent of the US population would.  And there is someone that would probably order two of them, along with a 36 ounce drink, and an order of fries.

I've still not had either a Double Down or a Baconator.

I tried both exactly once.  The Baconator wasn't even good, granted I like a burger pretty much fully dressed and they strip that one down to barebones.  The double down was good...but without a bun you had to eat it using the paper to keep yourself from being covered in the copious amounts of grease.  I think instead of putting all this money into novelty products these places could just spend time ensuring the quality of their current product.

It looks divine!

I was dissapointed with the Double Down because it didnt have any bread.

Unfortunately, I dont think we have an "Friendly's" joints down here.

Have you eaten there?  It's great quality, plus I can specify exactly what toppings I want on it so I get lettuce, mayo and grilled onions.  Plus they're fries are fresh and home cut, not frozen.  The only thing I would improve on is to put in a Boylan soda fountain, but those are exceedingly difficult to find.

Now, have you tasted Boylan soda?  I BET NOT!

I have to agree Philly, Five Guys is heads and shoulders above the others. The only thing that pisses me off is their fries are only one size and it's way to much for one person to eat, I always end up throwing half of them away when I go by myself.

Yeah, I agree about the size of the fries.  If you take me on a date with your biceps, Wumpy, we can just split the order of fries... how's that?  Now, pray tell, please divulge your preference of Five Guys burger toppings.  This could be very make-or-break for me.

Here goes...Mustard Mayo, onions, lettuce, Grilled mushrroms, bacon and jalapenos.

I mean really? is there any other way to eat a burger?

When will you be arriving herer in SA for our date? oh , and be sure you bring the double headed dildo.

I actually haven't I was asking a friend of mine if he had heard of the chain and where the nearest one was because I want to try their food.  Never heard of Boylan, I'm a pretty adventurous eater though so when you guys talk about this stuff it makes me want to experience it.

Edit: Boylan's seems to only bein NJ and NY

I've seen it there -- and meant to stop by -- we used to have one in Erie (which I think is still there)... The burgers are the best -- but the pic of the hot dog just wasn't quite hittin it.

That sandwich doesn't look very flavorful.  I'd rather invest the calories in a major burger on a regular bun and some perfect fries.  Pickles, unions, sauce, ketchup, mustard.  Whats with the white bread and orange cheese?

The char hut burger looks great!

I totally agree, Jan. Yeech.

I think my screen name describes it well.  Here on the Russian River, there is an ordinance prohibiting chain/franchises.  A person would have to drive over 20 miles to get to a fast food place that is not locally owned and operated.  We do have a Safeway food store, a 76 gas station and an ATM for Bank of America.  I must live in heaven   ;D  Have the best day

One might assume bias on my part, but I assure everyone this is not the case as I've only lived here five years, but in that time I've come to the conclusion that Philadelphia is THE ultimate sandwich city -- really great stuff.  The cheese steak is what they're known for in terms of tourists, and they can be delicious if you know where to go.  The most famous places are the the one's that began the trend, and luck would have it that they're only seven blocks from my apartment.  Legend says that Pat's King of Steaks made this sandwich first, and as you can see from the picture it's not a sit-down restaurant, but basically a large stand where you walk up and order at a window and then sit outside at tables to eat.  Then directly across from Pat's is the flashier Geno's -- both places are open 24/7 and are swamped after sports games.  My conclusion is that these two establishments are grossly over-rated.

For my money the best place to go if you're "in the know" is Shank's Original aka Shank's & Evelyn's, and not just for the cheese steak.  Here they have the best hand carved roast beef sandwich, and they're known as having invented the classic chicken cutlet sandwich, and I have to say that the chicken cutlet sandwich is absolutely amazing.

The other thing that's famous here is the roast pork sandwich and John's Roast Pork is the most famous.  Basically a cheese steak but with pork instead of beef, and often with sauteed broccoli rabe which is you're not familiar with isn't at all related to broccoli. In Italy it's called rapini and is also eaten in China widely, and doesn't taste like anything else -- it has a very distinct nutty and bitter flavor.  I love it, and it's excellent with garlic.

Then there's the entire other category, which I'm ever so fond of, which is the hoagie.  Legend has it that this was invented on Hog Island, which is where the airport now sits, back when Italian immigrants labored at the shipyard during World War 1, and it was the largest shipyard in the US at the time.  The key to why Philadelphia is good and sandwiches is due to the use of Italian bread, but it's way better here than something you'd encounter at Subway.  My favorite place for this is Sarcone's because they also operate a bakery on the same block, so the bread they use for their hoagies is the best you will find.  Also, a proper hoagie here is a classic Italian with oil & vinegar as a sauce, with dried herbs.

omg... they have a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMviLj3NcLo

I would be remiss if I didn't mention Tony Luke's which is where anyone running for political office goes for a photo op when they swing through Philadelphia, however for some reason I've not gone there yet.  We had a Sarah Palin sighting there in '08, though I think Obama went to Pat's.  Tony Luke's has all of the classic sandwiches under one roof, so I really need to go but it's kind of the place where you need to have a car, and I don't own a car and don't feel like doing a subway/bus combo to go there when all the other places I listed I can walk to.

Oh, and just last month I found this new totally awesome place called Paesano's and it may very well become my favorite. Basically they take the classic sandwiches and up the quality level a notch, but keep the prices the same as elsewhere. I had an amazing gustaio which is a roasted lamb sausage sandwich with gorgonzola and roasted fennel.  They have really weird hours though -- who the hell only opens Wed - Sun and from 11 am - 7 pm?

Philly for the first time in my life since leaving Pennsylvania this post makes me want to come back.

The only thing I really remember foodwise from my time in PA was the "Schmorgesborg" which was a breakfast buffet line run by some Amish folks in Westchester and it was absolutely amazing.

In my vicinity there's also a little Mexican flavoring with some great places to eat, as well as Little Saigon with great Vietnamese places.  In fact, just about five blocks from my apartment is this entire strip mall that is all Asian, mostly Vietnamese.  We have a Chinatown but that's on the other side of downtown from me, so I don't go as much as I should.  I actually prefer Vietnamese food as it seems less greasy and fattening.

I miss the huge amish buffets from PA too.  I lived there for 10 yrs before moving to the desert.  My favorite was Shady Maple in Lancaster, PA.  I could eat there for hours!

I lived in downingtown and I know Lancaster wasn't that far away but I was only 8 so I'm not sure exactly how far away it was.

The Amish stuff is totally different than the Italian stuff, and my specific part of Philadelphia is the traditionally Italian quarter.

For example, this is just five blocks from me: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_Market,_Philadelphia,_Pennsylvania

It's completely awesome as a place to shop, and it's only really touristy on the weekends so as long as I confine myself to weekdays it's hardly crowded at all.

I really enjoy going to the huge markets.  The farmers markets in PA were a staple for me, my MIL and I would go spend the morning shopping for incredible ingredients and then have lunch together.  It was one of the few outings with her that I actually enjoyed.

That Italian market looks amazing Miss P!  I could easily lose myself in sensory overload there.  ;D

At the rear of the Reading Terminal Market there's a really good Amish stand, and I often crave their tuna melts.  I think I may run up there for a late lunch today as I also need to buy coffee beans at Old City Coffee.

I've seen it there -- and meant to stop by -- we used to have one in Erie (which I think is still there)... The burgers are the best -- but the pic of the hot dog just wasn't quite hittin it.

Erie? Not in Erie, Pa. Or are you talking about a different Erie?

Seriously though Wumpy, that link you threw up just doesn't compare to mine.  Plus all the Mexicans in Filthydelphia are from Puebla state, not that border riffraff you have down there.  Any Mexican knows that it's all about food from Puebla, and Xochitl represents!

However, I'm glad this topic came up because I just googled and learned that the star chef that started Xochitl left in February to open El Rey, and I'd planned to take some visitors from France to Xochitl in 3 weeks, but now must score a reservation at El Rey.  DRAMA!
