Those look yummy! I'd add a little salsa to dip or drizzle.

These were from Chili's the semi fast food company. I had a coupon for free appetizers so I figured I'd give it a shot. Not too bad. Definitely prefer home made but if you are out anyways and need to kill some time before an appointment it's okay

I totally failed to recognise Chili's handiwork! I don't go there very often. They're not so bad and are one of the few places to get a steak for well under $30.

I think I ordered steak a couple of times from them but its definitely not a regular thing. I prefer Longhorns or Texas Roadhouse for my steaks. I've never been to anything fancy like Ruth Chris or Mortons though....

@Bronte I love a good steak, but they're so pricey that I take 'em where I can get 'em sometimes. When I have the cashola I do prefer a proper steakhouse, though.

I'm becoming convinced that Panda Express is the best fast food/takeout chain in the country. For $11 I got Beijing Beef, Orange Chicken, Beef & Broccoli, Chow Mein and Fried Rice. Basically two full meals for an average appetite. The one by my house has a help wanted sign listing 3 positions and starting pay for the lowest position is $18/hour. That's a pretty impressive business model to pay that well, offer that much value to the consumer and still turn a profit.

If they truly treat their employees like that, I'm all for it. Otherwise, I won't get started on the chow.

It's possible that it's not the same all over the country. The location in my area is less than 45 minutes away from the founding restaurant, Panda Inn. And the volume is such that the food moves quickly from pan to take out box.

@EbayMafia Panda Express used to be pretty nasty. Very greasy food, questionable freshness, unkempt restaurants, etc. The past couple of years I have noticed a big change. The restaurants are much cleaner, they're paying a lot more attention to how the food is prepared, and that's really cutting down on the excess greasiness, and I don't see tired-out food waiting to be served. I've been favourably impressed the past few times I've been there. Used to avoid it like the plague, but not anymore.

Florida is still under 10 last I checked for fast food
