Junior's Famous NY Cheesecake The greatest cheesecake on the planet. Killing for it is not out the question. KFC Original Recipe Fried Chicken There is something very nice about KFC. The chicken is pressure cooked so it is very tender. The spices are mild but tasty. My daughter loves it the next day, cold out of the fridge. Olive Garden Lasagna Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce Fast food Italian. It's like the McDonald's of Italian food. Applebee's Baby Back Ribs I have had lots better in many places. Outback's ribs are better. Long John Silver's Batter-Dipped Fish Fast food fish and chips. You will get better at your corner fish and chips shop. Cinnabon's Cinnamon Rolls Globs of tasteless bread-like product encased in disgustingly sweet sugar sauce. The one thing you will never taste in one is cinnamon. If I never have to taste one again I will be happy. Sara Lee Original Cream Cheesecake Not bad for out of the fridge. But there are better. IHOP Pancakes I'm spoiled. My own pancakes are so much better that IHOP just don't do anything for me. Their pancakes are sort of tasteless. I usually order eggs when I go there. Snickers Bars I don't like the nuts. I prefer a Milky Way. They are both sticky sweet and disgusting but in a semi-good way when you need a sugar boost. Reese's Peanut Cups Peanut butter cups, you mean. Chocolate and peanut butter belong together. They have a somewhat stale taste to me but since they all taste that way I assume it's not from being stale. Hostess Twinkie Cakes Sugar boost edible only until you are 10. How anyone can eat these globs of putrid sugar is beyond me. McDonald's Big Mac If you don't want to actually taste the hamburger (which might be a good idea at McDonald's) then a Big Mac might be a choice. There is so much garbage on the bun that meat is not one of the tastes that rushes to your brain. Onion and thousand island dressing tend to be the predominant flavors. I used to like them when I was a child. Burger King Whopper Better than McDonald's fare but it has an off taste to me. There is just something wierd about the taste of Burger King food. Wendy's Chili Someone at Wendy's needs to find a better chili recipe. My chili is so-so but it still tastes infinitely better than Wendy's. Taco Bell Enchirito Taco Bell is a guilty pleasure for me. Everything they make tastes the same but there is just something I like about it. Beats me what it is. T.G.I. Friday's French Onion Soup All TGIF food is OK. The onion soup is not something I would order there though. Onion soup is hard to make right. The Outback's Marinated Steak For a chain steak house their food is not bad. Red Lobster's Clam Chowder Once you have had clam chowder in a real Boston restaraunt everything else tastes like Campbell's. [ February 19, 2004: Message edited by: Thomas Paul ]
Junior's Famous NY Cheesecake: this is the best ever. If you are in NY, you have to try this one, the one in Broolyn, not gran central. It's heaven. Hooter's wings: besides the waitresses, wings in Hooters are one of the best.
Orange Julius AFAIK these guys went out of business. Egg, OJ, shaved ice, maybe a dash of vanilla swirled in a blended. Could have been the original smoothy. Tasty, creamy, orange... McDonalds and Twinkies ain't what they used to be. They made em take the lard out.
mmmm.... Hooter's wings! mmmm.... Cinnabons! With extra icing! Reese's Peanut Butter cups may possibly be the best mass marketed candy on the planet, but Snickers is pretty damn good too (although I much prefer M&Ms to Snickers). I'm originally from southern New England where if nothing else we certainly have Italians and seafood. As such, Olive Garden and Red Lobster just don't do it for me. I suppose if I was marooned somewhere west of the Mississipi river it might work for me. [ February 19, 2004: Message edited by: Jason Menard ]
They sell almond Snickers in Korea. I never saw them in the UK. I prefer them to the peanut version because I love that marzipan taste. I've also tried TGIs (good fajitas) and Outback (pretty good I thought, though I've had much better). Best cheesecake IMO is from the Mamuska Cheesecake Shop. There's a franchise in Nottingham. If you go to the website, beware of the jingle... But HS, you can get Whoppers and Macs in England, why not try them, they're cheap enough. With a large Coke they're good hangover food, that's about it.

in my opnion, some of the most popular foods in the USA: pizza; backyard bbq; (btw, i will move in my new home next week, tentative plan is to have 1 month bbq) smoked salmon; (my landlord in california once treat me with smoked salmon, it is sooo delicious) do it yourself (the true spirit of america in my opnion, you can make almost everything on your own: cookie, juice fron fresh orange, smoked salmon, bbq, .... and i hope to plant some vegitable in my flower bed)

I've tried them. As Thomas said it's mostly all bun and the sliver of meat ain't worth it. The best burgers I've had were South African - BBQ'd or rather brai'd.

There is nothing like a bagel with lox (smoked salmon) and a schmear (cream cheese). That is a truly NY food. I have never had a decent bagel outside of NY.
