Southern chicken sandwiches were sold in NY at least, even in Canada as well. I would imagine it's different for the biscuit though, as people around here seem to go nutzoid for biscuits and biscuit sandwiches. I remember tossing out biscuits from family meals or never giving them a second look on the breakfast menu.

McDonald's offers a green chile cheeseburger here in New Mexico, where we are somewhat infatuated with green chile and kind of obsess over green chile cheeseburgers. Their version is pretty good. Is it the best? No, but it is pretty good in its own right.

There was a mild uproar recently during our State Fair here in Albuquerque where an umpteenth green chile cheeseburger contest was held. Fuddrucker's actually won with its version of a green chile cheeseburger. All the locavore and anti-chain snobs were all in a tizzy that a national chain could possibly have the best green chile cheeseburger in New Mexico.

But the area manager for Fuddrucker's pointed out that they use only authentic New Mexico green chile in their version of the concoction and that everybody involved in making it is from New Mexico.

We even put green chile on pizza here and I think Papa John's has the absolute best version of that. Their pepperoni pizza with green chile is heaven on earth. Even better than the versions at the smaller, local pizza chains and single restaurants in town.

I shudder to think what would ever happen if we had a best green chile pizza contest and Papa John's ever won. Those snobs would absolutely flip their wigs.


As to the McDonald's Southern-style chicken sandwich, I remember a couple of years back receiving a coupon in the mail to try it out for free. I tried it and liked it well enough, but I've stuck to the spicy chicken sandwich, which is my favorite offering at McDonald's.

Great post. I'm jealous that you have the spicy chicken sandwich at McDonalds. We only had a trial run with that one in NY and there is a trial run in SC for the Jalapeno McDouble. It's fascinating all of the testing and studies they run on their food.

Oh, yum. It's worth going to Albuquerque just for a green chile cheeseburger.

I don't care if Carrabbas is a chain, if there's one in town I'm headed that way.

I think the Frontier's is underrated. Not the best, perhaps, but certainly should be part of the conversation. I like Owl and Buckhorn better, but I like the Frontier's offering better than Blakes.

They are in New Mexico. However, Blakes is testing the waters in Texas. The Owl location in Socorro is my my favorite as I have many fond memories of that place. Some jerk broke in a while back and stole all the signed dollar bills on the walls. It was fun to read them. The Buckhorn is across the the highway US380 , I didn't think of the Frontier . :-)

I need to get out there. I've only been to San Fran on the west coast, but need to experience the SW definitely.
