carls jr bacon cheddar fries

Well, don't those look pretty? Who wouldn't want some crispy fries drenched in melted cheese and bacon sprinkles? That's what I thought, so I ordered some as an upgrade to my combo just to give them a test drive. They came in this nice box suggesting I was in store for something big:

whataburger chicken strips

The Whataburger Whatachick'n' Strips fast food combo packs three chicken strips, fries, Texas toast, and a drink. They are similar in size and shape to the Arby's Prime-Cut Tenders which we reviewed. Like Arby's, they are heavily breaded, almost to the point that it's more breading than chicken.

I like Zaxby's style. They are a fast food chicken restaurant chain that is sort of caught between fast food and fast casual. Their meals are platters, not simply combos. And as platters go, the portion sizes at Zaxby's are on the generous side. This particular meal gives you crinkle-cut french fries, coleslaw, a slice of Texas toast, and a beverage along with five Buffalo fingers. As an aside, I think there must be some sort of rule that if you call them "fingers" you get five but if you want to serve more, or fewer, you need to call them strips or something other than fingers. At least, that's been my observation.

Here are some pics from a recent trip to Cologne, Germany:

arbys tender snack

Arby's has chicken tenders. Just in case you didn't know or have been living under a rock, Arby's has been making a big push of late to make sure people know that they are the place to go for all kinds of meats. Their "We Have The Meat" slogan and fun employee t-shirts with all the different animals on it might make vegetarians cringe but meat lovers like me embrace the meaty love.

Arby's is sitting on the fence between bundle and full blown combo with the deal in my latest coupon mailer. For $2.99 I get three Prime-Cut Tenders and a small order of curly fries. They call it a snack, I call it a cheap, light lunch.

Fast food restaurants have started a new trend, bundling smaller "value" items into a combo meal at a bargain price, usually in the $4 to $5 range. We reviewed one of the early trendsetters last summer when Taco Bell rolled out boxed items including the Bacon Club Chalupa Big Box. But, at least among the burger joints, the focus seems to be on a $4 price point.
