Check out this fun, short video where YouTube user Moshe Tamssot selected the maximum number of options on a McDonald's order kiosk to create the most elaborate fast food burger ever. Extra kudos to the McDonald's staff for being such good sports (you can even see the manager taking a pic of the creation.)

mcdonalds artisan grilled chicken sandwich

I don't know why I let McDonald's trick me into trying their chicken sandwiches. They are always a disappointment to me (see here and here.) Take the new Artisan Grilled Chicken sandwich as the latest example of how McDonald's simply cannot make a decent chicken sandwich to save their lives.

I would blame myself for the blurry picture, but the sandwich tasted blurry as well. It was bland, boring, and uninspired. The fast food chain describes the chicken sandwich as "100% grilled chicken breast filet seasoned to perfection with ingredients like salt, garlic and parsley – seared in our kitchens, no preservatives added. Crisp leaf lettuce, fresh tomato, and a vinaigrette dressing. All atop our delectable artisan roll."

del taco signs

Just look at the number of little signs in this Del Taco fast food drive-thru. Four signs are visible but there were actually five, covering everything from new carnitas to very old, sun-faded promos for taco night. This is not counting the signs above and on the sides of the drive-thru menu. C'mon, Del Taco, If I am in your drive-thru, I am already a captive audience.  You have me already.

mcdonalds chicken bacon mcwrap

Back in 2013 we reviewed the fried chicken version of the McDonald's Premium Chicken and Bacon McWrap fast food "sandwich." Back then, we were quite pleased with the taste and generous portions offered. In addition, the quality of the ingredients seemed high.

Flash forward to 2015, we wanted to see if the sandwich stood the test of time. So this time, I ordered the grilled chicken version.

Still arriving in the same funky Hot Pocket-style tear-away box, my McWrap was excellent. The chicken and a big slab of bacon were sticking out of the front of the wrap in what can only be described as the closest resemblance to the food stylist promotional picture of any food item I have ever ordered!

arbys reuben rachel

For those who don't want a traditional Reuben, Arby's has a fast food sandwich alternative - the turkey-based Rachel. Both sandwiches are constructed in similar fashion and have similar ingredients except for a few slight differences. The Reuben, pictured below, is described on the Arby's website as:

Marbled rye bread filled with freshly sliced corned beef, melty Swiss Cheese, tangy sauerkraut and creamy Thousand Island dressing. This is a reuben sandwich inspired by the New York standard.

We've reviewed the Arby's Reuben before. Back then, the sandwich debuted "for a limited time." It's nice to have seen it stick around.

someburros 2015 logo

Someburros, a small Mexican fast food restaurant chain in Arizona, has revamped its look. Same menu, just a refreshed logo and branding. I noticed their restaurants are doing some small stuff as well, such as swapping out mult-colored string lights for plain white on the patios. Happy to see the investment and also happy that I can still order my "chicken burro, enchilada style, red."

We've updated the Someburros menu, and here's a little video from the chain.

Muy bueno Someburros!
