Burger vs Burger (vs Chicken Sandwich)

Fast Food and Favorites



Gracie Greenfield, Writer

 All right, here we go down the long path of comparing restaurants. I have three for this post: Wendy’s, Cookout, and Chick Fil A. Now, this may be an unfair comparison, because I barely go to Wendy’s or Cookout, and my family gets Chick Fil A for dinner a lot. For those of you who have never been to (or heard of) Cookout, it’s a chain restaurant that is located more in the southern part of the United States, specifically North Carolina and Virginia. I had the grand pleasure of eating at Cookout during our summer vacation to Hilton Head a few years ago, and it was extremely good. I usually get the same order there-a junior tray with a cheeseburger, a double order of cheese curds, and a chocolate shake. If you are ever on vacation around there, I highly recommend it. They have really good burgers and the shakes are incredible! I’d say that Cookout, in my mind, beats out Wendy’s. 

I also love Chick Fil A a lot. They have a wide variety of food options, and I haven’t tried one that I didn’t like. The chicken tenders, nuggets, and sandwiches always made me wish I had more. The fries are amazing, especially when you eat them right away when they are hot. And, of course, I must include their beverages. When I was younger, we usually ordered water, but more recently, I’ve been ordering both the frosted lemonade and the chocolate shakes. The shakes are perfect in my opinion- not overly sweet, the perfect amount of flavor, and easy enough to drink. The frosted lemonade is the one that I order the most, though. It’s not too sweet, not too sour, cold, refreshing, and just tastes so good! A warning, though- they melt fast, so drink quick! Their regular lemonade is incredible as well.

And Wendy’s? Well, I’m not exactly sure why I put Wendy’s on here. Actually scratch that- yes, I am. Not because I love their burgers, but because of the Baconator fries and Frosties. Frosties are delicious.
