We are within a month of the first In-N-Out opening in the Houston area and it just happens to be in my hometown. The thought of a double-double animal style at my local brewery is enough to bring a tear to the eye.
That's awesome. I suspect you'd better prepare yourself for some insane wait times at first though. I couldn't even imagine if there was only one In-N-Out in Las Vegas. The waittimes are crazy enough as it is.
Yeah, it'll be bad. And the intersection where they're putting it is pretty awful too. But in about three months, that's going to make for a very fine Saturday.

I don't see the big deal about the Panera video. At least if it's frozen the chance of food contamination is greatly lessened.

Having said that, she totally deserved to get fired.
So, just buy Panera macaroni and cheese in your local grocery store, yeah?

Yeah, even in our little burg, you best not go there at lunchtime if you want to be back at work on time. Despite the fact there is another one just a couple miles away.

My dream is a green chile double double animal style. They have hot peppers, but they aren't Hatch chile. I just want to crush a Blake's lotaburger and a Double Double at lunch, but in New Mexico. (They have Blake's in Tucson these days, but it isn't the same.)


(And I'm sure I've said it before, but my go to order is 3x3 animal style, no veggies, extra toasted buns and hot peppers. With a Neapolitan shake.)

Beautiful. Brings a tear to my eye.

What would put it over the top for trolling would be Popeye's accepting Chick-Fil-A gift cards. Not holding my breath on that one, but a man can dream.

Bojangles biscuits are better, IMO, but everything else is better at Popeyes.

Pretty difficult to pin down what their footprint is, really. I grew up in MI (we know, dude) and there's no Popeye's in Ann Arbor, but there are pockets in the state.

I just figured with the spread they have in various places people would've run into one on various travels. I've been to a Bojangles or two, even though it's not something where I grew up or currently live (MD).

Agreed. I'm not a biscuit person (other than bisquits and gravy, on which I'm fully in on), but I'll eat a Bojangles biscuit. Popeyes is fine, but I already feel like I'm eating so much bad stuff that I can opt out of that aspect and not feel so gross afterwards.

Clarification: I like a good biscuit, thank you very much. But to me it's pretty much a meal in and of itself. I'm not going to forego a good piece of chicken to eat a biscuit.

Put it this way, if you have a full array of T'giving laid out, I'm not grabbing a biscuit in lieu of mashed tatters/gravy, stuffing, etc.

But you put a nice biscuit/butter/jam spread in front of me, and I might eat that instead of other breakfast options.

Choices, is what I'm saying.

Got to Popeye's around when it opened and the drive thru line was wrapped around the building. Decided to go inside instead. The wait was about 30 minutes. Still delicious and very awesome.

They actually called my number twice. But I didn't take the free food, much to everyone else's chagrin.

When I worked in NYC, there was a Popeye's directly across the street from my office, and there is one 10 minute from my house that I drive past frequently. I think I may have gotten Popeyes at the Livingston Mall food court once, but I can't remember if I did, or just looked at the menu.
