    I consider myself a bit of a KFC connoisseur, love the stuff. Guess I will have to make the trip to do a QC on this one.

    I love Popeye's and want to bring Ao to one
    The thing is, when we are in the States all we do is stuff our face, so every time we've come across Popeye's we've already stuffed our selves

    No fxuking joke.....last weekend in Chicago was absurd. For 2 1/2 days all we did was eat and go back to the hotel and nap......rinse repeat 555

    Our last night we went to 4 restaurants and just got some drinks and something small at the bar each one

    Yes, right you are. I just went to the US for the first time in five years and ate at all kinds of fast food joints that they don't have here, including Popeye's. The biscuits are THE best.55555

    ^Of course I got an In-N-Out...55555.....along with Chipotle and Roberto's. Not sure if Roberto's is national or not, but they have quite a few in Vegas.

    Even though Chipotle originated in US, I only eat it here in Vancouver
    For some reason the ingredients here seem so much better than the Chipotle in the US

    I also very rarely eat fast food in the US
    Not for some bougie ideals......just that thereare so many good mom and pop places in US, I'd rather eat at those

    Every once in a while, I will get Taco Bell andthen regret it
    I think there should be an age ceiling on eating Taco Bell 555

    I'll take your word on it, Chipotle does nothing for me. Maybe the Canadian stores are just sooo far away from Mexico that they seem exotic?

    I'm drowning in choice here in Cali..

    To be honest.....I dont even think of Chipotle as Mexican
    It is but for me.......it is good, quality ingredients that taste great
    Like I wouldn't think of Chipotle if I was craving Mexican

    What I find interesting is when I hear from friends in both the US and Norway, is that people are moving away from the large chains these days. But then into these hipster burger-joints instead, so not exactly health-food either…

    So now it’s blue-cheese dressing and truffle-chili-mayo on the fries…

    Absolutely love this guy though (ballistic BBQ), replicating the burgers in the US joints. Doing In N Out, Five Guys, Red Robin. Smashburger etc. It’s serious stuff.

    Not exactly health food but it is a bit like the Italian/Greek eating habits
    The quality of food is better, less processed
    So it is not diet food, but eons better than BK, KFC and such

    Just the way you feel after you eat Chipotle's vs any of those above is proof
