Coney Island Lou made an interesting comment that seems to thread all the way thru the RoodFood site. He talked about how Boston Chicken was "pretty good for franchised slop". It is interesting to read those thoughts, since it appears that most people who comment on this site seem to have the feeling that the franchised chains who failed..
Burger Chef, Red Barn, Carrols and others were good places, and their "franchised slop" was either good or superior, but dammit, the ones that made a success, Buger King, Wendy’s, Mc Donald’s, Cracker Barrel and such are all evil and awful. It sounds a little elitist and snobbish to me. Am I a great fan of Mc Donald’s, or Burger King or Pizza Hut? No, but the snobbishness that comes out seems more like sour grapes, than objective thinking.
