This is what it looked like when we asked for an extra side of ham at McDonald's during breakfast for our dog:

What? No special box?

Doesn't that look delicious?  And only $1.  Actually, $1 is steep, considering we could've bought a whole burger on the lunch menu for the same price.

it's been a while since I visited Jack in the Box and that delicious burger of burgers, the Ultimate Cheeseburger.  Let's see how it has stood the test of time:

Ooohhh Yeahh.  You haven't changed a bit.  Meat, cheese, cheese, meat and cheese.  You are everything a hearty burger should be.  Thanks for being there!

Nothing special about this order, but this Big Mac arrived PACKED.  Overflowing with toppings, actually.  It's almost like it went through the assembly process twice.  No double meat though.  This is the way a Big Mac should always be.

Here are some pics of the menu from Carl's Jr. in Panama.  They are a bit grainy, but the key message is there is virtually no difference between this and a U.S. restaurant.  Panama's currency is US Dollars, so even that was the same.carls jr panama

Several readers have said that it would be nice, especially on the menu pages, to be able to click to zoom in the images so that they can be more easily read.  Well, good news.  Over the next few weeks we will begin adding this feature to articles and new menu posts. 

There's no way for me to go back and fix all the old images as I no longer have the original larger images in most cases.  However, over time, we'll all get to enjoy this improvement.

My family is from Buffalo, NY, so naturally they all wanted to give McDonald's new Mighty Wings a try.  Both my mom and my sister really like them, but yesterday is the first chance I got to order them.  For the review, read on...

Like most fast food chicken strips, these wings come in two order sizes, 3pc and 5pc.  There is also a larger 10pc family size.  Opening the box, you are greeted to something highly unusual for McDonald's:  bone-in chicken pieces.

The chicken comes out-of-the-box with a slightly-spicy seasoning which makes these wings enjoyable without dipping.  Both my wife and I thought the chicken, without adding any sauce, reminded us of the hot and spicy KFC chicken.  The wings are crispy and golden brown, just what you would want from fried chicken.

I added the buffalo sauce and found the whole experience tasty.  We didn't find the wings comparable to true buffalo wings, but they stand on their own as a tasty snack.  Nutritionally, the 5pc wings are similar in scale to a Big Mac in terms of calories, calories from fat, fat grams, cholesterol and sodium (480, 230, 31, 145, 1450 for the wings vs. 550, 260, 29, 75, 970 for the Big Mac.)

With all "for a limited time" deals at McDonald's, you have to be cautious about getting too excited about making this a must-eat meal.  But if these become a permanent staple, it would be nice to have another fried chicken fast food option.
