Of course! They taste the same now as they ever have, so why not?

You didn't read my source did you? I would believe my source over wikipedia which can be written by anyone. My source was Yahoo.

It interests you enough to have posted about it twice.

I hate Chains in general, and don't like fast good. But Ill eat it in a pinch.

A McRib doesn't taste very good.

But it's not Unsafe. I don't think McDonalds has ever killed anyone.

I lived in San Francisco for two years, there I would frequent Chipotle or Freebirds almost daily. I've been trying to cut down on daily fast food runs / eating out. Now, as I am back in Washington, we don't have many chain restaurants. I get a burger from McDonalds about once every couple weeks and that is about it.

I don't REFUSE to eat at them, just the vast majority of chains I've been to don't taste so good, and lots of local places can beat them. So I tend to try them first.

The only chain that ever had any product that I liked was that McDonalds McStxereme or whatever it was called salad, it basicly came in a bigass plastic coffee cup with a rounded lid, so you just dumped your balsamic in it, shook it up, and you could sorta drink/chew it while you drove. Shame it went away.

You are sadly missing out on the incredible cheeses from Spain, California, Switzerland, upstate New York, the Netherlands, and many other places.

As for the original question: pretty much no, unless I get dragged along by the extended family unwillingly. Still, with the Internet available on one's smartphone, it's not too hard to find much better local restaurants wherever one goes.

I guess the only national chains I would go to these days are Chipotle or In-n-Out Burger, and even then it doesn't happen very often. I can't go to In-n-Out much due to the fact that I live in New York now, through local chain Shake Shack is an excellent stand-in for my monthly hamburger fix.

And while your source lists some things that are in a McRib, it doesn't list anything that's NOT in it - like meat. So I'm still waiting for you to back up that claim.

Good thing I'm not holding my breath.

I should say most, not all. I've toured the Cheese Alps ( as I call them ) In France, been all over the rural areas of Italy, and extensively toured door country in Wisconsin, and I think these three Areas make the best cheese in the world.

I mostly cook at home but I do occasionally enjoy just about any fast food place out there except for Dominos Pizza, Burger King, and Taco Bell.

We’re lucky people don’t call it Appel - although some people do persist in thinking there’s a product called the iTouch.[COLOR="#808080"]
Incorrect grammar

and people still spell it wrongly

I also make my own cheese, bacon and sausages and have my own garden where I grow tons of veggies .

I think it's safe to say that you are a foodie to exponential levels, beyond anyone I have ever known. It's no shocker that you wouldn't like chain restaurants.

I'd hate to be shackled down to that, though. I'm happy that I can be satisfied eating almost anywhere, and that I don't have to import my cheese from remote mountains or create my own $70 BBQ sauce in order to like what I eat. I know several people who are always unhappy when they go out to eat, because nothing satisfies them if it isn't handmade from local organic ingredients. Sorry, but that would suck.

I love good food, just as you do. But I also just like food. Big Mac? Happy. Five Guys burger? Happy. Real burger joint burger? Happy. Handmade local farm grown top shelf burger with imported cheese and $70 BBQ sauce? Happy. Happier, maybe.

No, no. It's hand ground by blind Tibetan monks in a remote village on the side of a mountain in Pakistan then packaged in custom boxes designed by Frank Gehry and made from African Blackwood, then taken by white camel to an airtight cargo ship and paddled across the sea to avoid fumes from gas, where a specially designed helicopter transports it directly to the buyer. Yeah, it costs $48,000 per teaspoon, but it's the best salt you'll ever taste!

You couldn't pay me enough to eat their chili.

Yet it is highest ranked in the country and when compared to other chili's in fast food places, best ranked in terms of health by a long margin.

That's typically how most places do it, tho I am a bit of a foodie *******. Its not unsafe. And I've eaten before, its not bad for 2 dollars.

Stop it, you two are seriously making me crave one of those.

Frankly, I couldn't care less whether I'm eating at a branch of a massive franchise, or a one-of-a-kind mom and pop restaurant. Furthermore, I don't give the slightest hint of a **** if the food is 100% organic/healthy/whatever, or if it's 100% fat/grease/mish-mash of discarded plant and/or animal material; no, there is only one absolute truth for me and eating out.

If it tastes good and is reasonably priced, I'm eating it.
