Thank you! I'll give them a try. I like potatoes, just not in my beef tacos.

French dip battle:

1. Cracker Barrel
2. La Madeleine

I like French dips but I really haven't found a good one here. Instead of a meat identifiable as roast beef, in both places it is some paper thin dried out salty something. The au jus is similarly salty something with little of meat flavor.

We like the Beefeater at Jason's Deli and also Houlihan's has a good French dip. They also have the best French onion soup, at least lately. At Jason's you can get a half sandwich and one trip to the salad bar ( their salad bar is really good) for under $10.

J Alexander's. End of discussion. Their prime rib sandwich is great also. The au jus and horseradish sauce are awesome too.

Good meat costs money and a good au jus takes time. I wouldn't go to a fast food sandwich joint looking for a great French Dip.

Bayseas yesterday and Shuck Shack last week.

Bayseas was about 6x cheaper and 90% just as good as S.S.

The fun part of S.S. was trying to find the lobster in the lobster roll and figure out what made their mayo "Japanese".

Five Guys...love their burgers, but the bun need to be a tad bit larger. Fresh toppings, as always (always get mine loaded, hence the need for a bigger bun)...and excellent fries!

J's was good when they first opened, but now it just tastes reheated and chainy.

My last few visits there have kept me from ever going back

It's called Kewpie. And the differences are noticeable if you're getting the real deal
