why so much hate in this headline? i mean, welcome to fark and all, but wow- somebody is really pissed off that other people like food that they dont.

Add a Golden Corral and you have a trifecta of fail.

Golden Corral is on a different level of awful.

I have yet to find an equivalent in quality and utter yumminess to Red Lobster's biscuits, homemade or at a different restaurant.

Yeah, maybe.

It's probably too much to hope that they are pissed the the CEO doesn't want to give his employees sick leave or lunch breaks. Link

I only eat food people haven't heard of.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to finish gluing this hose together so I can suck air out of peoples' car tires to inflate the wheels on my fixie bike.

I like this headline for its absurd over-the-top burning hatred. Don't take it too seriously.

And, because the trolling wasn't bad enough already today, now out come the Food Hipsters.

I am so tired of trolling. I remember the before time, when there were no trolls on the Internet. It was a nice time. I just don't have the energy to care anymore.

"Food Hipsters?" What an oversimplification of my refined palate. Any simpleton plebe can consume. A few chosen people actually know how to eat. And among that group, there are those of us who actually taste.

When I was in college, Olive Garden's unlimited soup salad and breadsticks deal was the best thing ever. It was like a 45 minute drive to Roanoke, but we'd make it worthwhile with all the zuppa toscana we'd cram into our gullets. The waiters hated us so much.

But yeah, now that I'm gainfully employed and don't have the metabolism of a 20 year old, I eat real food.

I ate in a Golden Corral ONE time, we were seated near the restrooms. I look up and see this guy double timing it to the restroom holding his hand over his mouth while puke sprayed out from between his fingers.

It was truly a magical evening.

My friend's crazypsychohosebeast wife can make them, though she adds Italian sausage chunks to it. But as they moved hundreds of miles away so she could keep him more under control, i haven't had them in years.

\miss him living around here, miss his parties, will never miss that biatch of a wife of his

Red Lobster biscuits plus Toscana soup. Yeah, that would be the greatest thing ever.

WOP. W.O.P. Without Official Papers. Kids these days can't even get ethnic slurs right.

This is going to be the funniest post ever if "wop" is part of the Fark Filter.

Can't stand Red Lobster, only been to Olive Garden once and liked my food...got some ravioli dish and a salad.

Red Lobster and Olive Garden are only distantly related to food.
 
2012-07-06 09:26:05 PM
I like the cheese biscuits at Red Lobster. So GFY.
 
2012-07-06 09:26:17 PM
I've been to Olive Garden, but I've never been to a Red Lobster.

This might be my chance to live the dream.

Red Lobster is pretty much blacks-only. I'm not sure they qualify as "hayseeds".
 
2012-07-06 09:28:46 PM
davidphogan: Wow, lots of TFers white knight for shiatty chain restaurants. I never saw this before.

Cheddar-Garlic biscuts, dude.

I'll go to Red Lobster, order a 13 buck salad, and eat the shiat out of those.

Olive Garden too. get out of there for less than 12 bucks.
 
2012-07-06 09:30:18 PM
I've said it before and I'll say it again - these places are McDonald's with pretensions.
 
2012-07-06 09:30:53 PM
Well subby its like this, You can go piss up a wet rope and cry for humanity being filled with imperfection while I go get some delicious Red Lobster cheese biscuits.

You food hipsters would really scream about my grilled chicken bewbs and broccoli five days a week.

But I'll continue to eat them despite your outrage.

2 1/2 cup Bisquick
3/4 cup COLD milk
4 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. garlic POWDER
1 cup sharp cheddar

Mix. Drop on cookie sheet. Bake.

Yeah, they taste pretty close.
 
2012-07-06 09:31:44 PM
Haters (or would that be likers) can suck it. I applaud subby's awesome headline.

Ruby Tuesday's come pretty close. I actually wouldn't be surpirsed if they weren't the exact same.

Both of those restaurants taste like eating a salt lick, only marginally better than applebees or chili's.
 
2012-07-06 09:37:58 PM
My brother insists on going to Red Lobster every year for his birthday. He's nuts but I love him and will gladly humor his whims once a year getting girl drink drunk in honor of his quirks.

it sort of makes sense

Somewhere near US 15 in Arkansas at some no-name diner I ordered biscuits for breakfast and the lady picked up a bag of flour and made me BISCUITS!

I have been to several world-renowned places but that was my favorite restaurant experience ever.

Sure, but then you'd need to register with the DMV.

You:
"Brodie: Cookie stand isn't part of the food court.
T.S. Quint: Of course it is.
Brodie: The food court is downstairs. The cookie stand is upstairs. It not like we're talking quantum physics here.
T.S. Quint: The cookie stands counts as an eatery, eateries are part of the food court.
Brodie: Bullshiat! Eateries that operate within the designated square downstairs count as food court. Anything outside, of said designated sqaure, counts as an autonomous unit for mid-mall snacking. Now, if you're going to wax intellectual about the subject..."

Yea, too many restaurants are really just outlets for sysco

One of my favorite restaurants just changed hands, I suggested that he not go that route
