Fast Food Maniac by Jon Hein

Fast Food Maniac by Jon Hein

Okay, so this book totally sucked. I MEAN SUCKED!
At the beginning of it the author does admit that he is a rabid fan of all fast food. What he doesn’t tell the reader is that he is boring as heck.

I love some fast food. I have to maintain this girlish figure somehow. But what this book does is just push a book out hoping to cash in on some dough. Pun really not intended.
It’s separated into sections with the big chains, regional ones and Jon Hein’s holy grail of favorites. Guess what gets the top spot? Frigging McDonald’s. Now I know McDonald’s is probably the most well known chain ever but dang.
The little bits of each restaurant gives a little chart of when the restaurant was established, the founder, locations, yada-yada. Then he goes on to just give you a few chapters of just basic information. If you are over the age of 2 you are going to learn nothing new here folks.

I wanted more. I wanted to know details of food. It’s a damn food book isn’t it? I want to know what to expect when I eat at Hardee’s.

I would have given this book a one star except he does mention a chain that I know I’m going to pay later for eating at…but I just can’t resist.

BUT, he suggests that you get a naked dog. YOU DO NOT get a naked dog at the Varsity. You get that chili dog. I have no idea what is in that chili, but you get it. You lick ever last drop of it off that plate too. Stock up on toilet paper on the way home. But it’s worth it. Even the president knows what to do!

When that lady taking your order yells “whata you have? whata you have?” You hurry up and order it and get the hell outta the way. There is chili dogs to be had here.

About all this book did was make me call my husband and have him stop for supplies on the way home.

  1. I tried to send you a message via GoodReads. Seems as though you’re not taking messages. HOWEVER, I just wanted to say I find your reviews utterly entertaining — love your gifs — and yet completely insightful. I started with your review of ‘Pretty Girls’ — which I just finished — and will keep up with whatever you post. You have an in-depth knowledge of book tropes and cliches. Totally dig it.
