    I’m at the office, listening to co-workers argue, literally…about apples and oranges. And now another food bracket…wish I could go back to bed.

      So many things you could do a bracket about besides food, food is overplayed. Perhaps we will do our own bracket of KSR personalities. Mrs. TT obviously the #1 overall seed.

      #teambananas if we’re fighting about fruit, lol

      Politics HAH, never knew there was so much fascination about gambling.
      And UK basketball, yes, in what…85 days?

    Im team Ryan on this… nothing wrong with Waffle House after church. Especially if you go to an earlier service and its more like brunch than lunch.

    All this bracket is doing for me so far is pointing out how many restaurants I don’t like. Hard pass on almost everything in this region.

    My mom loves the biscuits and gravy at Bob Evans! I haven’t never gotten anything that didn’t taste good there. I’ve been waiting on the restaurant bracket. This show is hilarious!

    • I’ve only eaten there once (we don’t have them where I live 🙁 ) and it was FANTASTIC! We were traveling, it was cold, I had been driving all night, and I got the pot roast (it was lunchtime). They put it on top of mashed potatoes, and put that on top of a split biscuit. Perfect hot comfort food for cold weather and fatigue.

    How is Chick-fil-a not a #1 seed… Sad!

    Our KSR crew continues to choose horribly.
    Harold is awesome. Little Ceasar’s?
    Mama mia.

      The fact that their taste is so bad (and stabbings) is what keeps this entertaining.



    • CATandMONKEY
      10:52 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Indeed. Here I am, still listening.

    I can eat at chain restaurants anywhere – how about a “local restaurants” bracket?

    Wallace Station vs. Parkette…
    Wok-N-Go vs. Taqueria Ramirez…
    Tandoor vs. Arirang Garden…
    Stella’s vs. Fava’s

    With so many solid local choices in the area (many of which have gained national attention), we could fill a bracket with local restaurants in a heartbeat.



    • Realme
      10:50 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      That would be more fun, but there are listeners from all over the state and he’s trying not to leave them out.



    • DrSayre
      11:05 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Matt had talked about doing like a burger contest or something, where they go test different burgers throughout the state. I think that would be awesome if they did that. Kinda like the 538 Burrito contest a few years ago.

      Realme – so make the brackets/pairings geographic. Every part of the state has favorite local restaurants, right?

      Heck, use the KHSAA basketball districts and regions to build the bracket…

    Subway is the lowest rung on the sandwich shop ladder. All the cold cuts taste like bologna and pimento loaf.



    • Realme
      10:52 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      And they’re the stingiest with the meat & cheese. Enjoy your bread sandwiches, guys.



    • CATandMONKEY
      10:54 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Penn Station is legit northeast-style. I would happily pay double the price there, compared to Subway.



    • J-Dub421
      11:00 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Subway is gross, and their “meat” is barely meat.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:03 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Plus you end up with that smell on your clothes after being in the store. I do like their cookies, though.



    • JTHinton
      11:11 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Jimmy John’s is 10x better than SubNoWay (okay…was that too forced?)

    • What makes a sub more northeast, or less so? Didn’t Subway start out in the NE?



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:31 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Maybe? If they did they did not attempt to copy any of the fantastic local places I used to frequent in every New England state, NY, NJ and the Philly area.

      (For me)Penn Station is simply reminiscent of the fantastic tastes on which I grew up.

    • Is it that they are usually Italian fare without stuff like Turkey Bacon, club, etc.?

      Actually I looked it up and Subway started in Connecticut.

      Oh, and J-Dub, yeah, I think everyone knows that “chicken” is some kind of pressed “meat” product, especially when it’s all the exact same shape.



    • J-Dub421
      11:43 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Only 50% meat is still rather disturbing though.

    Red Lobster, Captain D’s and Long John Silvers all SUCK! How is Buffalo Wings&Rings not in this bracket?

      I would like this comment twice if I could.



  10. J-Dub421

    The food at Hooters is terrible. It’s all bagged, frozen, pre-made garbage. There service is terrible as well.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:06 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      I have always felt the same way. The idea of breaded wings coated with Buffalo sauce makes me want to gag, no matter if it is pre-made or fresh. Don’t even get me started on “boneless wings.”



    • Realme
      11:09 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      I’ll get started on boneless wings! They Are Not Wings. Not sure why anyone (Matt & Drew included) prefers that over the real thing, which is awesome. No comment on Hooters, we all know they aren’t going there for the food.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:11 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      ^ If I want to eat glorified chicken nuggets, I’ll just go to McDonald’s. No wait, I hate that place too! 🙂



    • J-Dub421
      11:13 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Anyone who wants to see boobs that much should just go to a strip club and not subject themselves to the bad food and awful service at Hooters.



    • Realme
      11:14 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      IMO, guys who eat “boneless wings” get a Hello Kitty shaped hole punched in their man card.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:21 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Realme, that’s not an opinion, that’s a FACT!



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:21 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Agree with the OP and all prior replies.
      Hooters is NOT a wing place. Despite my appreciation of both food and the feminine physique- Hooters- just, No.

    Are there any Shoneys outside of Nashville?



    • Realme
      11:09 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Yes, my hometown (Glasgow) has one.



    • ClutchCargo
      11:13 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      E-town has one. They’re still pretty widespread, I think.



    • CATandMONKEY
      11:17 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      There is the (formerly-newly-remodeled) Shoneys in E-town where Cal stopped with the NC trophy.

    • Is it not still Frisch’s in Lexington? There are still Shoneys in Bama, but not like there used to be. Their hot strawberry sauce with French toast sticks was off the charts.

  12. Do you guys realize what’s happening? For all the complaining from some about having the food bracket AGAIN, this is the most comments in a while. Mission accomplished by MJ. lol



    • Realme
      11:20 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      Yeah. I got pulled in.

      We are all compelled to rail against the tragic choices and decisions put forth by MJ and Co.

      And hungry.

    • The thing is though, you can’t compare a DQ to Cheddar’s. I know you can’t really have a food bracket with only fast food or only sit-down, but still this is like saying “Which do you prefer, iPhone or Levis?” Neither of these things is like the other.

      I generally don’t like buffets. Most food does not improve with sitting in warming trays for a few hours.



    • wesmorgan1
      1:34 pm May 16, 2018 Permalink

      In my experience, Golden Corral’s quality varies more across locations than do most chains. I’ve eaten at GCs that were among the best buffets – of any brand – I’ve ever visited, and I’ve eaten at some truly bad locations.



  18. Realme
    11:46 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

    I don’t understand why Cal eats bowls of whipped cream at Golden Corral. Do you think he walks right up to the buffet, or does someone fetch his food for him?



    • DrSayre
      11:55 am May 15, 2018 Permalink

      lol thats a good point… I can see him eating there, but I cant imagine the UK basketball coach just walking up to the buffet. He would get mobbed!
