    I absolutely love the angry whopper! It's well worth the indigestion. Ha

    If I’m forced to pick, Big Mac.

    Burger King tastes disgusting.

    I used to be fond of both, I guess with the slight edge going to the Whopper. No more of either for me, though, thanks.

    We need to rethink fast food. Burgers are so 1950. I want a drive-thru for poke bowls!

    Po-ke: diced raw fish served either as an appetizer or as a main course and is one of the main dishes of Native Hawaiian cuisine. Traditional forms are aku (skipjack tuna) and heʻe (octopus). Heʻe (octopus) poke is usually called by its Japanese name tako poke, except in places like the island of Niʻihau where the Hawaiian language is spoken. Increasingly popular ahi poke is made with yellowfin tuna. Adaptations may feature raw salmon or various shellfish as a main ingredient served raw with the common poke seasonings

    I don't eat red meat any more, but I did like a Whopper without mayo back in the day. McDonald's always seemed a little flat by comparison. I also enjoyed Wendy's. My body apparently was never as virtuous as those that purportedly reject fast food with titanic stomach and bowel trauma. I do get indigestion if I eat pretty much any kind of french fry, but that includes homemade.

    It's just Thousand Island dressing.

    During a previous panic over one of the flus, I forget which, I went into a Mickey Ds near my office in Houston to grab a quick lunch (I was famished no other reason).

    I was reassured to see the girl serving me was wearing blue latex gloves.

    That is until she sniffed very loudly and proceeded to wipe her nose on the back of her glove-wrapped hand. :rolleyes::mad::eek:

    The only way you would get the Taco Bell crowd to eat it traditional style is if it tasted "just like chicken".

    I do think that bowl meals will continue to gain in popularity and may even use the "poke" name although it will end up being something entirely different.

    burger king is good when it's done right. unfortunately chances of getting a whopper right is slim around here.i agree on the too much mayo being a problem.my vote goes for big mac for consistency.

    Back in the early 1970s, National Lampoon magazine had a column called, “Letters from the Editors”.

    In one issue, they had a letter supposedly revealing what the, “Secret Sauce” on a Big Mac really is. They signed it, “Ray Kroc, San Diego, California”.

    I still crack up when I think of it. I laughed until my stomach muscles hurt back then.

    I'd steer clear of both with this e.coli beef recall.

    it's because they're basically vegetable oil in a mashed potato (like substance) wick.

    I remember seeing one of those survival guys on a TV show demonstrating how you could start a camp fire with a back of potato chips once.

    I thought to myself "dude, if you're close enough to a convenience store to buy a bag of chips..."

    You're probably glad to know the Houston chain "Uncle Wankey's" (yes, REALLY) didn't last long then. I wonder why?

    2 tasty choices.

    Overall I think the big Mac reigns supreme.

    never much cared for macca donna ru; not too much interested in any of the fast food chains; although when there were young'uns in the house, it's hard to beat that kind of convenience, but not as a regular choice.

    There's still enough local joints that do justice to the hamburger that I hope I never have to choose between the two.
