Zaxby’s Is Reigniting the Chicken Sandwich War

Last summer, Popeyes made waves by adding a highly-anticipated chicken sandwich to its menu, which the franchise described as its biggest product launch in 30 years.

Comment on potato and broccolini frittata by Wendy

Made this gorgeous frittata last night for the umpteenth time, and I just have to sing the praises of this recipe. The basic technique is absolute perfection, and so is the flavor, color, and texture combination. Thanks, Deb!

Before-and-after photos show how much fast-food restaurants have changed over the years

Back in 1955, McDonald's offered 15-cent hamburgers. Tim Boyle/Newsmakers/Getty Images Some of the most famous fast-food chains were practically unrecognizable years ago. Many aspects of fast-food restaurants, from the menu to the technology and the overall restaurant design, have evolved over the years.

Kick Ass or Die

Well, shit.  That’s about the only articulate thing I can say about 2020. To be fair, I’m out of practice. However, I’d also  guess I’m not the only person stuck in the space between “there are a lot of things that should be said about this year” and “dear god, I’m sick of people talking about this year.” A space that i believe can be most accurately described like this:  Well. Shit.  Sixteen years ago I started writing stories on the internet (about the adventures of renovating houses)...

REVIEW: Jack in the Box Chili Cheeseburger

A few thoughts popped into my head right before I was about to order Jack in the Box’s Chili Cheeseburger. Is the chili just the seasoned meat in Jack’s tacos? Does the chili have beans? Will there be a Twitter war between Jack in the Box and Wendy’s because Wendy’s tweeted Jack’s chili must not be good since it isn’t offered in a bowl, and then Jack retorted by tweeting Wendy’s chili is made from old beef patties? I should start going to sleep earlier. Can I use Apple Pay in the drive-thru? S...

Dunkin' Dunkin' is selling a "Spicy Ghost Pepper Donut" with strawberries and ghost pepper in the frosting. The donuts are available beginning October 14 through December as a Halloween treat.

The Moorlands Are Alive With The Sounds Of Terror: TPM’s Gothic And Horror Reading Recommendations

Let me just say right off the bat, I don’t do scary. I have a very vivid memory from when I was a child, hanging out with some friends and the beloved 80’s film, Predator was on TV. I was so uncomfortable that I physically turned my back away from the TV screen instead of watching some alien creature with night vision duke it out with Arnold Swartzenager in the middle of the jungle. My tolerance hasn’t changed much since then — if you want me to watch a horror movie with you, expect me to talk i...

Comment on tangy braised chickpeas by Wendy

I can’t wait to make this as the vegan main for Christmas dinner this year. We already make your brisket and latkes (with a vegan batch) every year. I have a vegan daughter and grandson and I know they will love this. I actually made Molly Yeh’s recipe last year. Oh, I also make your matzo ball soup for Christmas Eve. Such good food!

ANNOUNCEMENT: New Reviewer Holly

When I turned 30 a few years back, I felt a fundamental shift in my world view on food. For so long, I had categorized things I ate as “good” or “bad.” Plain celery? Good. Baconator from Wendy’s? Bad. Yet, the night of my birthday, I was lying in my bed while propping myself up to discourage the stomach acid from creeping up my esophagus. It is then that I had a revelation: food is food. It cannot be inherently good or bad. Now, should I eat three Bloomin’ Onions a week? Absolutely not!…unles...
