    We've got a local "craft burger" place in my town, and I think Five Guys is both better and less expensive than this place is.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

      I'm sure, and I do that generally. But sometimes speed/convenience/opportunity is the prevailing factor.

        • At least locally MyBurger crushes Five Guys and Smashburger, but I fear it will only be a matter of time before they go to **** as well.

            • I think I've gotten a burger at any restaurant maybe once or twice in the last several years. Even before COVID the average wasn't much better. Same with steaks.

              I just make them better at home. It's not even close either. I scratch my burger itch once a month at home on the grill and find something else to eat. Steaks are another one where I just don't get them in restaurants anymore. I can cook a steak better and about a third the cost of almost any restaurant short of something like Manny's. BBQ too. I'll put my ribs up against anyone and my pulled pork and brisket are well above average. My burger game is so good I was able to cook a burger for my pregnant sister-in-law that hit temp but was still as juicy as the rest of us who liked them a hair under medium.

              the only things I can't replicate at home are all related to equipment. I don't have a pizza oven, I don't have a tandoor, I don't have a deep fryer, I don't have a wok, I don't have a beer setup or a distillation column, etc.

              Swan is right though, convenience will often bulldoze everything else in the equation.

                Good time to build a huge datacenter in the deserts of Arizona. The last thing you need is water for a data center. They can mine bitcoin at the same time at the facility.

                  Serving good food was never the point of franchise chain restaurants. The point of them is to serve you the same food from location to location, and with that they are successful.

                  Before the internet, my M.O. was to just follow the semi's. I figure they're on the road every day, they should know where to go. Unfortunately, the mega truck stops like Love's and Pilot have ruined that method, so thank god for the internet.
                  That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                    White House aides are looking at how to ensure essential products carried by rail — such as food, energy, and key health products — could still reach their final destination even in the event of a potential strike. Senior officials have looked at how highways, ports and waterways can be used to offset any damage caused, while also talking to top officials in the shipping, freight and logistics industries.
                    Some freight carriers have begun limiting services, suspending hazardous material shipments and parking trains in what appears to be preparations for a lockout. Amtrak, which carries passengers on freight lines, canceled some long-distance routes Monday.

                    Biden appointed an emergency board in July to mediate the dispute, following two years of negotiations between six of the largest freight carriers and 12 unions that represent railroad workers. Nine unions have reached tentative agreements with the carriers based on the board’s recommendations, leaving the two largest unions without a deal in place.
                    The most important issues holding up an agreement are some of the largest carriers’ points-based attendance policies that penalize workers, up to termination, for going to routine doctor’s visits or attending family emergencies. Conductors and engineers say they do not receive a single sick day, paid or unpaid.
                    I feel this is Biden and Buttigieg's biggest and most underrated moment. If they can avoid a strike/lockout, they'll be able to crow about it into the mid-terms. If there is a strike/lockout, the Dems are ****ed. Any GOP with Rail ties have been awfully silent letting this play out.

                    • Not sure there is much anyone can do if BNSF and Union Pacific won't budge on the points issue. You would think that would be an easy decision since they are losing workers left and right but no one ever said people in charge had brains.

                        The people in charge probably vote Republican. Easy to see what they want.

                          I dont think they are thinking that far ahead...and if they are again that is a level of stupid that is of Trumpian levels. Tax breaks dont help you much if no one works for you.

                          • I don’t think the Dems are ****ed if there’s a strike. The unions have a pretty clear reason for striking and it’s just a matter of getting the message out.

                              They won't, but the Republicans will!

                                I don't think the concern has to do with whether people are pro or anti union. The concern, I suspect, is related to how it'll impact the daily lives of people in the country. If suddenly there are massive supply chain interruptions so people can't get prescriptions, food, gasoline, or (gasp) toilet paper, then in general people feel like things are going crappy, and those in power feel the brunt of it.
