El Pollo Loco recently introduced a series of $5 "Craveable Combos" - each with a main menu item plus a side of chips and a soft drink. There are four such combos right now:

  1. Chicken Taquitos
  2. Tacos al Carbon
  3. Grilled Chicken Loco Salad
  4. Loco Burrito

Above and below are pics of the burrito version.

Feast your eyes on the most perfectly prepared McDonald's fries I have had in ages. Where did I find such wonderful, golden brown, crispy delight? At DFW airport in Terminal C. Wow. I probably hit it just right, but they were ON THEIR GAME that day. Outstanding.

carls jr dollar western bacon cheeseburger

Over the early part of the summer Carl's Jr. was doing something crazy. They offered the Western Bacon Cheeseburger for $1 on Wednesdays. The deal ran through the end of July, but it was incredible. You could buy up to four at the price and no additional purchase was required.

Carl's Jr. seems to recognize the toll that their ever-increasing menu prices are having on the everyday consumer. In addition to this special, the popular $5 All Star meals and a number of other rotating special prices (e.g. the California Classic) are giving guests at least a couple of affordable alternatives to their bigger ticket items. Insert applause.

New to Wendy's value menu whose name is bigger than the sandwich. The Wendy's Buffalo Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich sounds impossibly fancy for $1. When you get it, however, you'll see it's just a slightly altered version of their existing value crispy chicken sandwich.
