Tesg’s Guide to Big Chain Road Food Consumption

There’s not much I can say about Tesg’s guide that probably hasn’t already been said. It’s an old-school web site (not a blog – go figure!) that includes entertaining analyses of this nation’s various big fast-food chains (oh – Tim Horton’s too, for those of you up north.) It’s ugly, but styles can be turned off in modern browsers so it’s all good.

Each restaurant page includes trivia about the chain, which will undoubtedly be useful in Trivial Pursuit matches and/or Jeopardy! appearances. Chick-Fil-A actually runs a chain in the south called Dwarf House, for instance. Maybe my Maid-Rite experience was due to the age of the restaurant. And White Castle started with an $80 loan.

This is really the internet at its best.

Funny, and informative. I only read the blurb about Noodles and Co and had to laugh about the description of Boulder!

By the way, I love Noodles and Co and look forward to an hour and a half roadtrip to the nearest one. Fresh, colorful, and delicious.

Very cool.

It’s also interesting to see what parent companies own what chains. I cannot find the wiki link that I found before, but this one is pretty good.

I’ve eaten at the Dwarf House – the original one I think.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
