Oh man, I sometimes forget how wild it is to live in California since so much of the population is condensed. I have like 5 wingstop's in a 10 mile radius. about 11 in a 15 mile radius haha.

What I would get excited to see open is a Potbelly sandwich shop. They hit Arizona when I lived there for a few years and never made it farther west.

The closest Potbelly near me closed last year. Had been there for ages.

Only been to Potbelly once in Milwaukee. It was good though but yea I was reading an article on struggling chains and they were on it. Pandemic really screwed them.

Gonna try Wingstop within a week or two, after seeing it on Doordash. What should I get? Like flavors and such.

Am curious about that mango flavor as well. I might do a twenty wing order and have four different flavors for every five wings.
It is on the hotter side if you're ok with that. Not the hottest they have but maybe like 4/5 on their hot scale.

Isn't WingStop more of a fast casual place like Qdoba or Chipotle? Unfair to lump them in with McDonalds so I think you can keep your numbers low.
You are probably correct. But I also don't do those either. I cook at home like 85% of the time, cook at our cabin 10% of the time, and then go to full service restaurants the rest of the time. I don't do full service restaurants like Applebees, Chilis, Olive Garden, etc either. Usually local non chain places, breweries, supper clubs.

I did go to McDonalds last month. For a Shamrock Shake! I get one every year!

I didn't get a Shamrock shake this year unfortunately, but speaking of supper clubs maybe I'll just buy the materials for a Grasshopper...

Does that count if all you got was dessert? It’s like getting a juice Starbucks, and is that considered fast food or a non alcoholic bar?

I was thinking of trying that. I've had some other similar product from Amazon and it was decent in a pinch.

I am going to give a hot take.

Whataburger is just a better McDonalds.

People that compare it to the In N Out, The Habit, or Five Guys are nuts.
I tried the Habit for the first time last week, not bad. It almost tastes like a cross between a wendy's burger and one you'd get from one of those family owned hamburger places, the onion rings aren't bad either but the fries didn't travel well.

Try the portobello burger l, if you like grilled onions and mushrooms 👍😉
