Fried Chicken. A testament to the American dream. A staple to Sunday Night football or ravenous late night Whataburger excursions. Originally a Scottish dish, fried chicken has pervaded this nation's culture from the ground up. In the early 19th century, Southern farmers introduced the delicacy to the population as a replacement to the boring broiled norm. Infusing their culture's...
There's a phenomena at Jesuit every Thursday that few can explain. We went to the students to discover why one item in the cafeteria is more popular than the others.
As we approach the old, stone building, we see the immense line of patrons all eagerly waiting to be admitted inside. Many of them have been waiting since 5:00 am, just to be the first ones in line. We wait for several hours, our anticipation building, before finally seeing the line start to shift forward. Once closer, we detect...

Some argue that another burrito establishment, Qdoba, surpasses Chipotle's burrito quality in that they provide the...

Qdoba Wins

For all those out there who favor Chipotle’s burrito over Qdoba’s there can be only one excuse: they’ve never tried Qdoba. In my opinion Qdoba’s masterpiece beats Chipotle’s in every way. Whether it’s the choice of ingredients available – Qudoba has 2 more starting meat options than Chipotle, counting the vegetarian option – or their ability to wrap the giant...
For years, hearing about In-N-Out Burger and its glorious success in California has made me desirous of their legendary food. When the privately-owned chain opened its doors in Allen and Frisco, I, among a thousand others, flocked to get my own “Double-Double” during the opening week. As I walked into the Allen location, I noticed every seat was taken, and...
