Too lazy to cook; too lazy to be specific

BryanL, the web presence of whom I have recently re-found, has posted his food categorization. I like it and will be incorporating it into my conversations. Be prepared. (Though 2.5 will just be replaced with Wolfgang Puck Express as it is the only known example in the Atlanta area. Also, it will be a rare moment I do not try to deny the existence of Cheesecake Factory)

LEVEL ONE FAST: McDonalds, BK, Bell, KFC… the standbys. Cheap. Greasy. Traditional.

LEVEL TWO FAST: Counter-service “meal replacement” trend. Boston Market, Chipotle and ilk, Punch’s, probably that Potbelly place, Baja Sol. The ingredient quality is a notch above Level One, as are the prices.

LEVEL TWO POINT FIVE FAST: Counter Service ordering and paying, but they bring the food to you. Wild Noodles, Noodles & Company.

LEVEL ONE SLOW: Applebees, TGI Fridays, Ruby Tuesdays

LEVEL TWO SLOW: Expensive chains (PF Changs, Cheesecake Fucking Factory)

LEVEL THREE SLOW: Real restaurant.

LEVEL FOUR SLOW: Real restaurant where you drop a wad.
