The Best Food to Order at Panda Express

Drew Lazor 55 comments

WebMD, the Internet's most trusted source for deeply paranoid self-diagnosing adults, offers no information on "Pandamonium," the trademarked phenomenon Panda Express implores its customers to experience each time they queue up at the scoop-and-serve Chinese-American chain. Fortunately we do: the goods on how to make the most of your visit to this mall food court staple. More

We Try Everything On Taco Bell's New Breakfast Menu

Fast Food Dennis Lee 22 comments

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

Fast Food Dennis Lee 37 comments

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 Subway's Flatizza

Slice Dennis Lee 24 comments

Flatizza. Just try to say that out loud. It looks easy, but it took me three tries to say it to the sandwich artist over at my neighborhood Subway. If you couldn't figure it out by the name, a "Flatizza" is Subway's version of a pizza, done their way. Er, your way. The recipe is simple: Take one of the flatbreads they use for flatbread sandwiches, swirl some pizza sauce on it, and top it with cheese, veggies, and/or meat. Pop that sucker in one of their quick toaster ovens, and voila, you've got some kind of pizza thing! Mmm...pizza thing. More

A Hamburger Today Jeremy Goldberg 22 comments

As part of their American Vintage campaign, McDonald's Japan released the Diner Double Beef burger, their image of a 1950s diner steak plate in hamburger form: double 100 percent beef patties with a fried egg, a slice of cheese, onions, Chicago-style steak sauce, and a mashed potato sauce on a classic whole wheat bun.

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

Fast Food Lee Movic 10 comments

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

A Hamburger Today Erin Jackson 11 comments

The newest burger from Jack in the Box features a beef patty with bacon mixed right into it, hickory smoked bacon, and creamy bacon mayo sauce on a new "gourmet" brioche bun. Clearly, we had to try it. More

Video: McDonald's Canada Debunks Pink Slime Myth

Fast Food Miki Kawasaki 10 comments

If you've ever wondered what goes into a McDonald's Chicken McNugget, you'd hardly be alone—the "pink goop" legend has been circulating for years, thanks in part to videos like this one. In a new ad, McDonald's Canada sets out to debunk the myth with a behind-the-scenes look at their production facility. More

We Try the Ciabatta Bacon Cheeseburger from Wendy's

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 13 comments

While they're fancying up the bookends by going all ciabatta on you, Wendy's has also quietly upped their game with a few new toppings. It all makes for a tasty-as-hell-sounding burger, but the reality is far less impressive. More

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

Fast Food Lee Movic 13 comments

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

We Try the Philly Cheesesteak Thickburger (and New Buns!) from Hardee's and Carl's Jr.

A Hamburger Today Todd Brock 10 comments

Thinly-sliced steak? Check. White cheese? Check. Onions and green peppers? Check—with even a slight bit of blackened blistering if you look closely. But I'm convinced that a huge part of my positive Philly experience came from the new bun. More

The 25 Best (and Worst) Fast Food Items We Ate in 2013

Ben Jay 9 comments

Like seemingly every year before it, 2013 saw some interesting fast food developments. Some chains threw common sense out the window for extra fat and flavor, while others modestly refined and improved some of their standard menu items. Though the results weren't always tasty (a lot of them were pretty damn terrible), they were certainly entertaining. Without further ado, here's some of the best and worst fast food we ate this past year. More
