Default Millville Sonic

I read in the Courier Post a while back that Millville is supposed to be getting one.

Tops: In-n-Out, Fatburger, Del Taco, Arby's, Chick-Fil-A
Middle: JITB, Sonic, Carl's Jr, Hardees
Bottom of the Barrel: McDonalds, Burger King

One you've probably never heard of is Zaxby's, since it's a franchise that started here in GA- it's got to be the best chicken out there. Even better than Chick-Fil-A, which is a lot for me to say, considering I place Chick-Fil-A pretty high up on the fast food totem pole.....
LOL - out of the 12 chains you mention, I have only been to 4 of them (Arby's, CFA and the 2 obvious). When I traveled for work, we ate much better than chain, since it was on the company dime.

And you're right, I've never heard of Zaxby's (so..my #2 answer from my post above, lol). My kids had Chick Fil A for the first time when we were driving back from Florida (we were someplace in MD) and they loved it. It is pretty darn good, but we don't have one within 40 miles (and it's not THAT good that's I'll spend $10 in gas to get there, lol). I'll remember Zaxby's the next time I'm "down south".

ETA: when I was in SoCal about 8 yrs ago we went to this "new" place for lunch called "Quiznos". OMG, how disgusting. When they started popping up around here I couldn't believe it. When one opened up near me I said "I give it 6 months". It closed in about 3.

I know there is a Chick Fil A in the food court of the Mommouth Mall. They are closed on Sunday, like all of the Chick Fil A's for religious observance. We have all of those chains in Nashville. We don't have in and out burger yet, but I'm sure its on its way. There are so many Californians here writing them to open up here.
Zaxbys has good Salads. We have quite a few of those.
As far as Sonics, we have 1 every few miles. Nashville is fast food and chain heaven, even have a Wolfgang Puck Express.

isn't that an oxymoron?

Yeah, I've never really understood the Quizno's thing- their sandwiches suck. And like you said, I've seen several of their stores open and subsequently close a short time thereafter- must be bad franchise support/location selection or something.

We just got a "Jersey Mike's" subshop down here a few miles from my house, and they've got a few other locations around the area. Everyone always says to me "wow- you must feel like you're back home now- you've got Jersey Mike's here". I hate to break it to them but Jersey Mike's is a) way overpriced for the size and quality of sandwich you get, and b) no where near as good as the typical mom-and-pop sub shops scattered all over NJ. My kids were bugging me to stop there last night to pick up dinner, and I think I paid over $21 for two "regular" subs (the size of a "half" in NJ) and two "minis" for the kids. For the same price in a local shop, I could have gotten three "wholes" (which we'll be doing when we're up there later this week )

If we're going out for Burgers fries and shakes, I'll usually shoot over to Nifty Fifties. That place rules.

I've been to the one in Bensalem countless times. Great place if you have small kids. Very underrated place, Bill, excellent mention.
