Here are some pics from a recent trip to Montreal. The McDonald's menu has a French vibe, but is really unique. Unlike my 2010 and 2013 trips to France, the Montreal McDonald's has a trimmed down menu. Could be partly because this particular location is in the Underground part of downtown, where everything is more food-court than full restaurant. Still, lots of interesting items on the menu.

This seemed a bit strange to me.  In the menu below, you will notice that there are a few side item options for McDonald's kids meals.  Fine.  But I was under the impression that you were given a choice between fries and fruit or other "healthy" alternatives.  Look more closely.

While driving between Phoenix and Los Angeles, I often stop to refuel my mind and soul at Carl's Jr. in Quartzite.  I see that Tesla Motors has made a deal with local franchisees of fast food and hotels across the country to begin installing Superchargers to make cross-country electric driving possible.  Here is the Tesla "station" near the AZ/CA border.

I've never made this a secret: The Original Tommy's cheeseburger, with it's decadent chili, is my all-time favorite burger.  So what is an Arizona resident to do, when the nearest Tommy's outlet is 318 miles away in Henderson, NV?  Improvise.  First, it should be known that Tommy's will ship its chili to your door.  But that's by the gallon, and I have no place to store that much chili.  So on a recent trip to San Diego, I bought a pint to-go and kept it in my cooler on the drive back home, where I then froze it in ready-to-heat individual serving ZipLoc bags.

Next up, the burger.  Thinking long and hard about what it is I like about Tommy's, sans chili, lead me to conclude that the chain that most closely honors the spirit and the flavor of my beloved burger is Five Guys.

The Interwebs are abuzz with chatter about the demise of SatisFries.  What is true is that Burger King gave its franchisees in the U.S. the choice on whether or not to keep the lower calorie fast food french fry on their menu.  2,500 stores said "yes".  So, for the time being, you will still be able to run into the random Burger King outlet that still has them.
