In honor of this thread I treated my wife to some Del Taco tonight.

Trust me, that's not the least romantic gesture I have ever done

By the way...here's one you might want to avoid:

I'm pretty sure that's the #2. It sure is a bum wrap.

Isn't that just a hot dog?

Only if it were made of pigeon, rat, human hand, and actual dog.

I still say Fuddruckers is not fast food. I've been going there since I was a young child, and it never really satisfied that fast food prerequisite to me. First off, many Fuddruckers have real cups, and despite the format, it's not a booth and take out type place, as are fast food restaurants. To me, "fast food" is food that's meant to be eaten away from the building. A drive through is pretty much an automatic sign of fast food. McDonalds, for example, didn't even have a way to eat in for many years. In most fast food places, the dining room is a secondary addition. At Fuddruckers, the dining room is the primary function of the restaurant.

Any place where you wait in line to order and the menu is on the wall behind a cashier is fast food, regardless of the speed, delivery process, or even the awesomeness of said food.

Nah-I'm with Shanks on this one. It's hard to set a general rule, might have to be determined on a case by case basis. Something similar to the Supreme Court's evaluation of whether or not something qualifies as pornography-"I know it when I see it." In this case Fuddruckers is definitely not fast food.

We had one in Edmonton. Maybe it was set up wrong. It was a combination of Wendy's and a Ponderosa.

The "real glasses" were clear plastic glasses you'd keep in your holiday trailer. Very classy.

And at the Fuddrucker's I know, the only one I've been to, it's in the Mall food court and you order off a large menu posted on a wall with a person standing at a cashier, you get a paper cup, and you take your food away and eat it in the same place as people who ordered Chinese, pizza from Sbarro's, Subway sandwiches, etc.

Maybe they have some more "Red Robin-esque" type places, but the two are clearly in different categories. Heck, several of the items at a Boston Market take hours to make, but it's all served relatively quickly and still counts as "fast food," even if they have to bring your turkey sandwich out to your table because the turkey's not quite done cooking yet.

Yup.

I've only ever been to Fuddruckers in San Diego, Tucson, and Phoenix. They've all been what I would call restaurants, but maybe it's just a west coast thing.

Fuddruckers clearly has "restaurant style" places, but clearly also has definite "fast foody" type locations as well. Wikipedia even calls the restauranty-style ones "fast casual" dining:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fast_casual_restaurant

Summary: no full table service, but attempts to have better food quality than "fast food" places.

So, we're all right. And that ends the Great Fuddruckers Debate of 2010. Let's move on.

P.S. SAM, go to Lindburger's just off Military Trail in Delray Beach if you want a good burger.

For anyone in the Delaware area, Jake's Hamburgers is really good, though they just changed their name to Jake's Wayback Burgers. They also have locations in Tampa, CT, Long Island, southeastern PA, MD, NC, and Springfield, MA.

Personally, I have no use for fast-food burgers. Thanks to the recession, there is a rash of burger joints in metro Atlanta started up by recently-unemployed upscale chefs and restauranteurs. Quite frankly, quick-service burgers (with the sole exception of Five Guys) cannot hope to compare.

    • Juli,    Our dominant hands perform millions of everyday task for us that are in our subconscious mind. We never give them a thought. However, the golf swing is NOT in our subconscious mind . It is a learned conscious task that is totally foreign and opposite to human genetics. If it was NATURAL NBA and NFL and other great PRO athletes would be leading the PGA tour .    Our shoulders ( upper arms ) are the most flexible joints in our body . This enables our dominant HANDS to bring food to our mouths so we could survive as humans and they will ALWAYS roll over, turn down unless we force them / teach them to perform otherwise . The DS only takes 2/10 seconds . Whatever key you choose to use must be  preprogrammed / prepared before you ever pull the shaft back . The human brain can only sort out and perform ONE ( 1 ) task in that short amount of time . So - what is that one thought to be ? Well - their is a direct connection between the brain and it’s dominant hand . The right in your case . It is responsible for dropping the entire lever system down back around behind our torso and to stay right palm upward during the entire DS . If we don’t we definitely know what is going to happen and you can see it on any range in the world . It is the turning of the torso ( inner circle ) that squares the face, not the hands ! Yes - I know this sounds radical and some will say so , but check out * Cortical Homunculus * and see where I am coming from.  thanks for your reply . Good luck
    • I get where you are going with this.  The only thing I can think of that would really constitute a "Mental Mistake" is there have been times where I'm forced to used a cart and it's cart path only. I assume I have the correct club and then by time I walk across to my ball (Not sure why I never hit it near the cart-path.) I realize I don't have the "right" club. So, 9 times out of 10 I use the club I have rather then hike back for another one.  Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't I always think "Damned, I'm an idiot."  Pretty much the rest of the time my mistakes come from this list. Hit it off the hosel. Hit it off the toe. Hit it off the heel. Hit it off the bottom. Hit it off the top of the club, or roof of the driver. Shanked it. Thinned it. Or some other unexpected weirdo swing fault that happens.  I would bet "mental" mistakes, on average, probably make up about 1 shot a round for me... maybe less. I played yesterday. Shot an 84.... 12 over par. I don't think any of those 12 were due to "mental" mistakes. I would say that all 12 shots came from "didn't hit it good enough" mistakes.
    • Overhand or underhand? I do think the connection most on this site have is we like talking golf. Most want to improve as well, but may not currently have the time available to put in to improve.
    • Distance is great and all that, but you have to keep it playable. If the driver is costing you 4 penalty strokes a round take some lessons... real lessons with it, not some quick fix crap.
    • What I have to do is focus on one shot at a time. Plan the hole from the flag back. That's the plan, but that's based upon hitting a good tee shot. If I don't put the tee shot where I need to, then it's a new hole. The tee shot is behind me. I have a different shot. I may have to hit a banana ball around a tree which I'll try if I'm hitting the ball well. If I'm not hitting the ball so well, I'll punch out. Best to let the game come to you to avoid putting up big numbers. This year will be interesting. I've dropped my LW, gone with a OL 56 wedge and added a 7W.
