  1. There you go stereotyping again. Nerds come in all shapes and sizes. Some are super chubby, but a lot are super skinny. Some are even really thin, and still flabby at the same time. There's even a few out there that are super ripped because they want to scare off bullies, or they didn't realize they were nerdy until after sports started hurting too much. You also can't just assume Star Wars is the series of choice. You may start a a huge fight without at least providing Star Trek as an option. Bringing energy drinks will also help your cause.

    Friend just bought a Kia Stinger GT2 AWD, and I got to drive it. Extremely nice car. It gets going fast, feels like it handles well, and is really comfortable.

    Steak N Shake is only good for the first 6ish months they're open. Service and food turns to trash after that. I figured that out from trying it at a few different locations. Cane's is actually really good, but Zaxby's is better. I was in Florida for 4 days, and ate Zaxby's twice. My wife and I both really liked Bojangles when we finally got to try it. It's a different style than all of the others though.

    I was in Louisville in Oct, and got to try White Castle for the first time. Disappointing is the only word for it. Talking to people, I can't imagine Krystal is any better. Breakfast at White Castle is actually good, but the burgers are not.

    The only people that like Five Guys are the ones that pile on toppings. Otherwise it's just a plain piece of meat. If you think people in CA are the only ones that like In N Out, go to one in another state. I've been to them in AZ, NV, and UT. All of them were packed, and it was driving through the are, so it was off hours.

    Having to ask for any seasoning on a $12 burger = a bland over priced burger

    You went to the wrong place if it was that much more. Things in CA are always going to be more expensive, but you can still find cheap/great Mexican food. Here's what you look for when trying to find the best Mexican food: Should be 1,00sqft or less There should be a band in the corner, even though they don't fit You should have to order in Spanish before 3pm, and after 6pm. The owner's kid should be there to translate in between. It will be clean, but should not be considered "nice". The hot food counter at a carniceria is a secret move. Look in the meat section on the way to the back, and leave if you don't see tripe or tongue in the coolers. If the cook is a woman, she should be under 5'2", and yelling at somebody in Spanish. The ramen craze didn't really start until after I moved. I also don't spend any real time in LA when I go home. Might have to go find some next time I go back.

    I've only been to Dallas, and it's a thing there too. We even got invaded by a Chuy's here. Taco Bueno couldn't survive though. I could see those cities keeping up with CA because they would be more traditional too.

    It's not solely based on the location, it's where the population is. CA just happens to be a border state. I've had good Mexican food in Kansas, but there's also a big migrant farming population there. I've lived in CO for 13yrs, and I still can't find a good place. I had a guy from Cuba tell me that one of the best Cuban restaurants he's ever eaten at was in Indiana, just across the border from Louisville. It can happen.

    TexMex isn't bad food, but it's just not good Mexican food. Just because you try to throw onions and peppers on something, it doesn't make it Mexican food.

    My opinion on CA Mexican food is based on having grandparents from Mexico. You can't find better Mexican food than in CA, unless you're in Mexico.

    Five Guys is a very well cooked, flavorless, expensive burger. For what they charge, you'd think they could at least spare some salt and pepper to put on their burgers.

    Nah. Five Guys is on par with Carl's Jr, but nobody would compare Carl's Jr and In N Out. In N Out and Mexican food are the things you can trust the opinion of a Californian. Outside of that, you're best to ignore them, unless of course it's me. My opinion is always correct.
