What's worse 'who ya got?'---Arby's or Roy Rogers?

I thought Roy Rogers all became Hardee's. I haven't seen one in probably 15-20 years. And the ones that I went to were like cafeteria style where the food was waiting for you to grab as you went through the line and you paid the cashier at the end.

Absolutely awful.

I checked it out a few weeks ago on a Wed night around 9, the bar was packed. It is definitely the new place for smokeshows to go to be seen. It's like they don't let ugly girls in. Got a seat at the bar after a few drinks, the menu looks good. Tried the bacon guac and also some duck tacos. Great selection of tequila and the sangria was good. The bartender confirmed that the place is full of hot chicks every night of the week. Gonna try to get back for dinner, heard the wait for tables gets to 2+ hours on weekends.

Pretty sure there was a Roy Rogers right near the WTC (unless it was an Arby's). Whatever it was it was fucking gross and I only ate there because the 24 hr. BK was closed for cleaning.

Arby's roast beef is nasty, but they have curly fries and loaded potato popper which are $$$$$$$

Chicken sandwiches aren't bad.

Arby's is pretty damned good, IMO.

My buddy went to Arby's in NOLA a few weeks ago and the Roast Beef sandwich he got was a legit green color. I haven't eaten at one since it closed in Waltham Center about 20 years ago

Lou - Thanks for the Lolita review. May have to hit it up in the next few weeks.

It's our go-to place for a special nite out, though sometimes we'll head down there & chill in the bar for dinner too. Very good.

Whoever does the waitress hiring at the Black Cow in newburyport has a good eye for talent. Food was pretty good too.

I forgot how bad the food at Cafe Pompeii is, stopped there after the game last night since there are not many late night options in the area, got a chicken parm sub that consisted of a glob of cheese on 2 chicken tenders, lettuce, and tomato on a stale sub roll and cold fries. I will stick with only going there around 3AM for a slice.
