Coffee at DD for me~fries at McDonald's for Sherry and me. Hamburgers at Hardees for us. But truly we use them about two to three times a month. We do like Chick-fil fries and soup.

Arby does have a good chicken salad sandwich.... but it is seasonal.

I didn't know Arby's has a chicken salad sandwich.

McAlister's has a very good chicken salad sandwich, IMO.

Arby's Has The Meats.  You don't think chicken is meat?

Mommydi, is your McAlisters as slow as molasses? I have never seen as ineffecient a operation as our McAlisters. I told one manager they need to send their management and employees to Chik Fil a for training. They insist on having only one cash register attendant, and my pet peeve is they make taking your order into “an experience” with endless options, and to top it off, the same individual is tasked with fixing your drinks. Sweet tea, vs unsweet tea or the coup de gras 1/2 and 1/2 with lemon or without lemon, with a straw or without a straw and lastly the all important lid or no lid. By then, your head is spinning as you contemplate slitting your wrists.

If there are more than 3 people in line, it is hopeless. Chick Fil A can service 25 cars through a drive through (double lane), vaccuum out your car (not really) and give you correct change and smile and say my pleasure sir. All the while having 3 employees directing traffic getting you out of their parking lot effeciently. All in about the same time as it takes to successfully place your order at McAlisters as they meticulously read it back to you in exquisite detail. But other than that once you successfully achieve getting your food at McAlisters, it is a good.

I could be pursuaded to give even McAlisters some grace if instead of their food, they brought me a six oack of Weinerschnitzl chili cheese dogs with a polish dog with Kraut as a chaser ::yummy::

Oh, does someone have Hardee's (Carl's Jr. west of the Mississippi) beat? EXCEPT for Chick-fil, most of them have a lot of work to do to improve on servicing the customer~Well, the Greek fast-food restaurants are very good as well.

Chick-fil has A+ service MAYBE it's because of "WHO" they hire and they pay more money. Take notice next time you go to Chick-fil and THEN consider other fast food services it is very obvious to even a person with one eye and a half of a brain the TYPE of folks they go after, they do so being wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove, which is wise.  I'll leave it for folk's observation to determine.

I believe there is a McAlisters in Greenville but not in Easley, or Clemson~I'll find one close and visit them.

Red, if you are by nature impatient as I am, i would not recommend seeking out a McAlisters. However even a poor Weinerschnitzl is worth the trip for the simple pleasure of a chili cheese dog or 2 or 6!

Jaime, the McAlister's I go to is across the street from a hospital (the old ORU City of Faith hospital that Jesus threatened Oral to build - that is now a private surgical hospital), so they get a lot of business from doctors/nurses, and family members who don't have time for a bunch of shenanigans as you describe. I don't have to play 50 questions when placing my order and they always have more than one person at the counter.
Also, if you text in your order on their app, you just run in and grab and go, which is what I've started doing.

Another thing - why do you like to mentally torture me bragging about your trips to Der Wienerschnitzel? We lost ours years ago! I saw one near San Diego a couple of years ago when I was there, but didn't have time to stop. Broke my heart. We have Coney Islander here, but it is not the same at all.

About the only time I go to Arby's is to pick up a junior roast beef for my granddoggie when I'm taking care of her.  I don't even look at the menu when I place an order. Maybe I should.

Their Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich on Honey Wheat is great... but as has been said... is seasonal.


The Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwich is back at Arby’s for a limited time this summer. The seasonal sandwich features a mixture of mayo, diced chicken, red grapes, apples, celery, and pecans served with leaf lettuce on honey wheat bread.

Or you can get just the salad in a bowl... Fairly Keto friendly ::tippinghat::

If possible try it before it is gone this year.

I love their Reubens for a quick bite also

Whenever I go to a sandwich place that has a Ruben, I try it.  Some I like, many I do not like.  Arby's falls into the latter category.

I do like their regular roast beef sandwich with lots of Arby's sauce.

Same, girl! If I eat an Arby's roast beef, I want horsey or their brown mustard on it! I used to dip my curly fries in their brown mustard, too.

the ONLY time I have anything horseradish is during the Passover Seder. 

Maror - bitter herbs.

Numbers 9:11
In the second month on the fourteenth day at twilight, they shall observe it; they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

Last year for Thanksgiving, we didn't do the usual turkey/dressing. My youngest daughter's "gentleman friend" brought a huge prime rib and roasted it for us, which was very nice of him. Of course we served it with a side of horseradish.

My wife and I went to Arby's a couple of weeks ago just for the spicy curly fries, of course I also had a double roast beef to go along with the fries.  ::smile::

The Arby’s here has a killer Jamoca shake, I would recommend. Don’t know if that is standard fare everywhere.

Ours has it but I have not had one.

But everytime I see the name it reminds me of one of my all time favorite ice creams.

Baskin Robbins ~ Jamoca Almond Fudge

We lost our B&R 20 years ago. Oe came back about 5 years ago but the ice creams are no the same ::doh::
