hardees

Finally, I have added the separate Hardee's menu, which in some ways is different from the Carl's Jr. menu.  I'm hoping those of you on the East Coast will appreciate not having to go to the corporate Flash website to view the menu info!

Schlotzsky's is one of those sandwich chains that is kind of hard to define.  Honestly, it has been years since I last set foot in one.  I am not sure how new this is, but pizza features prominently on their menu now.  We don't usually have pizza restaurants on Fast Food Source (I don't believe pizza is fast food) but since this is primarily a sandwich shop they get through the web of scrutiny.  Check out the menu here.

culvers

Updated menu for Culver's.  There are some additional food items that I neglected from the last update, plus pricing broken down by size for various items.

Website ranker.com is spotlighting the "Healthiest Fast Food Choices in America," featuring ten major chains and the lowest calorie/lowest fat menu items.  Many of our favorite healthy "tricks" are represented, from no cheese to no mayo to "Fresco Style" (at Taco Bell.)  As always, YMMV, especially when adding sides and beverages to these base items.

Check it out!

el pollo loco

 

Don't freak out, just because Arby's and El Pollo Loco's pictures are together does not mean they are merging.  I just happened to update both menus on the same day.  It is always interesting going through the menu updates, especially when some time has elapsed since the last revision.  In both of the above cases, the update today replaces the last version dated 10/30/2009.

What's changed in the last 22 months?  Nothing earth-shaking.  Arby's dumped popcorn chicken in favor of "Prime-cut Chicken Tenders."  El Pollo Loco has a bunch of upgraded burritos (I still miss the Chicken Lover's Burrito) and new "Premium" sides.  More dramatic is the price increases between the two chains for the same time period.

Arby's should be commended for keeping a reign on price increases.  In fact, the average menu item only went up about 10 cents.  Some items, like the Medium and Large Beef & Cheddars, didn't go up at all.

On the flip side, I was shocked to see that El Pollo Loco, which makes some outstanding food, showed a full $1 price jump for all of their main items (2pc, 3pc and 4pc meals.)  Wow.  That, plus the fact that some of their standard sides (like the BBQ black beans & veggies) were somehow magically promoted to "premium" is enough to earn a stern finger-wagging from me.

Check out the Arby's and El Pollo Loco menus and add your comments on the bottom of each page.  And if you think 22 months is a long time for me to get around to updating these menus, you can always contribute updates yourself and join in on the fun!

mcdonalds big mac

On a recent trip through the Keystone State, I stopped off at a McDonald's that hosts the Big Mac Museum.

In addition to the giant plastic Big Mac in the playground (sorry you cannot get inside it) and wall mural timeline, the store is loaded with pictures, trinkets, empty packaging and other memorabilia for the chain's most popular sandwich.  Why Pittsburgh?  Because a local McDonald's operator decided that a double burger was needed back in the '60's and the Big Mac is the result.  The rest, as they say, is delicious history.
