Steak ‘N Shake
Steak ‘N Shake milkshakes are thick and sweet in the perfect way, and people doe for their stick-thin fries if you’re into those types of fries. But the name of the place is pretty misleading…
Where’s the steak? And if they call that lame piece of meat they throw in-between store-bought buns a steak, we’ll see they should be sued by steak lovers for defamation. Yes, it’s that serious.
While we don’t think Shake Shake is terrible, but we do have a problem with the high reputation. It’s truly overrated and doesn't justify the 45-minute wait at its Madison Square Park location in NYC.
The burgers are fine, but that's it. fine. And don't get us started on the size of the burgers. That absolutely does not justify the long wait in line.
Charley’s Philly Steaks
This Ohio joint is famous for its Philly Steaks, crispy fries, and lemonade that is actually made from real juice lemon juice, and boy, don't the locals love them some good ol' Charley’s Philly Steaks, but that's where it ends.
Honestly, if you want to eat real Cheesesteak, then it's best you just go to Philly. Columbas, Ohio, can try all it wants to replicate the magic, but anyone that has had the real thing knows it doesn't compare. Save yourself the disappointment.
Oh, Baskin Robbins. There probably know other American ice cream chain that just takes you back to childhood...trying to choose which flavor you want to taste this Sunday, because your parent will only let you have one scoop, but there are 31 to choose from. If only those were our problems as adults.
Fast forward to 2020, Baskin Robbins has lost a lot of its magic. There are thousands of 'BR' chains around the world now, and perhaps this mass production is the reason why it has lost the charm it had decades ago. It's just like any mainstream ice cream parlor now. At least we still have our memories.
Blimpie has always been the weaker Subway in our opinion, so it's not surprising that other consumers think similarly. The lettuce always looks old, and the tomatoes are soggy. At least they toast their bread a bit to give the illusion that it's fresh. The best items on their menu are the cookies, but they can't even take credit for them because they're Pillsbury's.
Really, get it together, Blimpie. Don't you want customers?
