KSR Restaurant Madness is down to three


We had controversy in the Final Four of the KSR Restaurant Tournament today with a near split decision between Qdoba and Outback in one semifinal matchup. The committee decided to put that one to vote on Shannon The Dude’s Twitter page until 6 pm tonight, which means the tournament winner will not be announced until Monday.

Here’s how the bracket stands as of now as Cracker Barrel awaits an opponent in the championship:

    Cracker Barrel ? Really? You have got to be kidding me. Cracker Barrel is like the lower level of Rupp Arena…..full of blue hairs. And I don’t mean Wildcat blue. Cracker Barrel is just a Lambert’s wannabe

      Cracker Barrel used to be great when it was country-style cooking by staff that knew how to cook, but now that it’s all college kids who don’t know how to actually, you know, cook, you might as well eat at McDonalds.

      Lambert’s? Unless you like eating boatloads of Okra and Bread, that place is disgusting. It is high faluting for all visitors of the Redneck Rivera!!

    ^ Agreed. And you can’t even get beer there. Point deduction for that.

    Cracker Barrell over Chick-Fil-A is the Wisconsin over Kentucky of this tournament.

    This tourney was Chick-Fil-A’s to lose and to see Cracker Barrel advance is an insult. Outside of the hashbrown casserole and the peg game on your table, Cracker Barrel is pretty average.

    Chick-Fil-A is not only delicious, they INVENTED the chicken sandwich (allegedly). Their food is awesome and tasty from Pikeville to Paducah. Food court to Free standing, Chick-Fil-A is where I want to be every day (but not on Sundays).

    This. Bracket. Sucks.

    I quit caring (not that I really cared) when Waffle House went down.

    Outback is way over priced for what you get. Cracker Barrel has a good breakfast. Chick-fil-a is good, but it’s not nearly as good as people make it out to be. Wendys spicy chicken sandwich is just as good if not better. So, Qdoba is my winner even though I’ve never eaten there, but I do love Mexican.

    Chick-fil-A is the best. Best fast food. Best service. Best employees. Cleanest facilities. THE BEST!

    I really don’t understand the love for Cracker Barrel. Mediocre at best. Just a SLIGHTLY better Bob Evans. There are even the Lower Rupp Blue Hairs in there that will tell you to ‘SIT DOWN’ if you’re standing….

    Cracker Barrel was a sho- in from the get go. Sawmill gravy ftw. Outback had zero business advancing past the first round, it is terrible. Qdoba overall is tasty, but usually it’s marginal due to some kid who hates their menial job who half asses your burrito. When Qdoba, Moe’s, etc are the best they can be they are tough to beat. To me though, Cracker Barrel has always been good, affordable, and the meal and service as consistent as the sunrise. Vote Barrel ’16.

    qdoba puts a pound of rice in their burritos. Go Cracker Barrel!

    Qdoba over Bonefish? LMAO. Outback has gotta be the favorite in this one. They are good and consistent. Good value for what you get too.

    Chick-fil-A BLOWS! Just generic fast food. You reeealllly need to get out more. There are so many better places out there than most of these choices.
