Hey, McDonald’s owes me some free fries. I never claimed this ticket from 1980’s Easy Pickin’s quiz game. As you can see above, you scratch to reveal the question then select from one of four multiple-choice answers. Then if you win, select one bar to scratch for a prize. I won fries. I guess I could scratch the other five boxes but I kind of like the mystery.

I rarely go to A&W. There used to be one by my house, a dual concept with KFC, but when it closed during the last recession I had no easy way of getting to one. So on a recent trip to Montreal I stopped by and have it a try. It was like visiting an old friend.

When I first reviewed the Del Taco Chicken Roller back in 2015 I said you’d better order more than one because I ate it in seven bites. Well, this time I tried all four of these little fast food burritos on the Buck & Under menu:

  • The Original

  • Ranch

Wow, say that title five times fast, one for every dollar you’ll spend on this bundle, er combo, er meal. Whatever you want to call it, this is a good value over just buying 3 Tenders on their own, which would set you back over $4 without any sides or drink.

We’ve recently reviewed the concept of the $5 All Star Meals and judged them to be a good deal. Out of the four offerings, this one wins for best value in terms of both savings and nutrition. But what’s it like?

Following the bundle trend of the last couple of years, Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s has rolled out a batch of four of $5 All Star Meals that bundle two small menu items, a side, a drink and a cookie. The one exception to this is the Chicken Tender bundle which does not include a second menu item and is then, technically a combo.

I wanted to like Jack in the Box’s new Ribeye Burgers.

In this case the hook is “made with 100% ribeye.” How’d they taste? Read on.
