Would you like fries (or onion rings or chicken tenders) with that?

We Try Everything On Taco Bell's New Breakfast Menu

Nobody loves Taco Bell more than I do. Taco Bell is my favorite fast food restaurant, and if Taco Bell were a person, we'd be married right now, with 2.5 horrific taco-human hybrid babies. So when I heard that the Bell was coming out with breakfast, angels sang a chorus in my direction. I was both excited and scared. What if...what if it wasn't any good? What if...it was amazing? More

Chain Reaction: We Try McDonald's Bacon Clubhouse Sandwiches

What is a Bacon Clubhouse Sandwich? Allow me to enlighten you. It all starts on a new artisan roll (which looks like a shellacked brioche), packed with applewood-smoked bacon, caramelized onions, white cheddar, lettuce, and tomato. It's called a sandwich, and not a burger, because you're graciously allowed to choose a burger patty OR chicken (grilled or crispy) as its centerpiece. And, of course, there's some lily gilding to be had in the form of the ever delightful Big Mac sauce. Here's what we've got to say about McDonald's latest creation. More

Chain Reaction: We Try Papa John's New Chicken Poppers

I am in a fowl mood. [Rimshot!] Seriously, though, I'm in a funk. I know the days are getting longer already, and that's nice, and I did just get back from a week-long trip to sunny San Diego, but we've got another winter storm headed our way this week, and I just can't. Which is why I fall squarely among the target demographic for Papa John's New Chicken Poppers. I've got the bleus. More

Reality Check: We Try Burger King's New Rodeo Sandwiches

What if I told you that for $1 you could get a value-sized burger or chicken sandwich and a side order of onion rings with barbecue sauce? Too good to be true, right? Well it is, sort of. Burger King's new Rodeo Chicken Sandwich and Rodeo Burger are exactly that, just all under the same bun. Call it a 'mashup', if that helps. Better yet, call them unexpected jewels in the King's crown. More

Fast Food Chicken Dippin' Sauce Showdown: Popeye's Vs. McDonald's Vs. Burger King

Picking which fast food joint to buy your finger-food-fried-chicken-product-based lunch using the quality of available dipping sauces as the criteria is sort of like picking what cell phone to purchase based on its after-market case options, or which woman to marry based on her favorite cereal. There are rare cases in which this makes sense, but those cases are few and far between. Still, we wondered: all other things being equal, which of the three fast food establishments near our office would offer the best dipping experience? More
