Here's the Classic Salad from El Pollo Loco. From the website:

"Choose between deeply marinated fire-grilled chicken or Baja shrimp, then add crisp shredded lettuce blend and authentic corn, pico de gallo salsa, Cotija cheese, corn tortilla strips and fresh cilantro. Served with creamy cilantro dressing."

I found the salad to be generous, tasty, and satisfying. As I pointed out in last year's Grilled Chicken Salad Review for this very same fast food restaurant, the chicken in El Pollo Loco's salads seems completely different in taste and texture from the whole chicken pieces you get at the same restaurant. This chicken is a bit more dry, although that could just be the result of a whole chicken breast cut up and then stored for use during the day. I have no idea.

(H&H Report Update) "The Cobb County, Georgia prosecutor moved to dismiss the charge against an Alabama driver ticketed in Marietta, Georgia for distracted driving based on the driver’s act of eating a McDonald’s Double Cheeseburger while driving at highway speeds.

These pics are screen grabs from two restaurants, one near Notre  Dame in the Latin Quarter and also some shots from the airport McDonald's at CDG. Hey, fast food is fast food!

The Catholic season of Lent, which culminates in Easter Sunday, is meant to be a time for sacrifice and reflection. Catholic children are taught to "give up" something they like during the period. Fasting in olden days has given way to a modern tradition of not eating meat on Fridays during Lent. This particular tradition seems to have triggered a growing tend in fast food marketing. The challenge: how do you capitalize on a large part of your demographic that will otherwise skip your restaurant because your base menu is all meat? The answer: SEAFOOD.

We've seen this coming. Fish sandwiches have been long advertised during Lent. In fact, the McDonald's fish sandwich is said to have been created for this reason. And we started seeing the beginnings of a promotional "season" two years ago. But never before have I seen so many different chains hopping onto this particular bandwagon. Here are just a few from this past week:


Wendy's has been promoting their Premium North Pacific Cod sandwich. Gone are the days of the basic fish sandwich. Like other fast food chains, Wendy's seems to really embrace long names to their new products. Another marketing mini-

Through all my fast food dining, I didn't eat here, but was passing by and decided to give Subway a little love by grabbing a couple shots of their menu. I would think it is difficult for Subway to compete here, considering there is some sort of sandwich shop virtually everywhere you turn.
