We recently introduced Cook Out to the Fast Food Source family, and now it's time to look at the food. For $4.99, you can pick from this menu:

As you can see, you are able to mix and match some interesting combinations including a bunch of chicken items which can count as sides. Very generous for the price.

Here's a showdown of two big fast food chicken sandwiches from Carl's Jr: The Big Chicken Fillet Sandwich and the Chicken Club Sandwich.

Right off the bat, you can tell that the Big Chicken Fillet dwarfs the Chicken Club in sheer size. Arriving in the big promotional box, you know you're in for some serious eating before you even raise the lid. I'm not sure why the cooks bothered sticking a "chicken" sticker on this box considering there is a punch out for the Big Chicken already pre-printed. But I digress.

Del Taco is rolling out a new taco that is touted as "a bigger, fresher and better-tasting crunchy beef taco, worthy of the brand’s name." The taco will sell for $1.39 and they are also offering a turkey option. This fast food item is meant to be a nod back to the original taco served up by Del Taco over 50 years ago. It "features the perfect ratio of meat to cheese," according to their press release.

I'm happy to see the effort put into an old stand by and look forward to trying it. We'll probably review it here soon.

Cook Out is a small fast food chain of about 200 stores in the Southeastern US that specializes in burgers, BBQ, and hot dogs. The first location opened in Greensboro, NC in 1989 and they currently have locations in about seven states from Georgia to Delaware and into Western Kentucky and Tennessee.

jack in the box panko onion rings

Jack in the Box has rolled out Panko Onion Rings "at participating restaurants." They look a lot like the website picture (below). They're light and flaky, with a good crisp outside and a decent slice of onion inside. My only issue with these is that they still taste like frozen, fast food onion rings. If you're going to go for an onion ring, you've already thrown caution to the wind so you want something special. These are fine, just not "wow."
