The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Fast-Food Bacon Meals Available Today!August 12, 2010 5:00 am 5 Comments
What would you do if you were completely out of bacon? You checked the fridge, you pulled everything out of the freezer in hopes that a pack of bacon slipped behind that thing wrapped in aluminum foil your aunt Maggie brought over three years ago, and still…no bacon. Not even an emergency can of bacon in the pantry. What then?
How would you satisfy your need to feed on the world’s only “Perfect Food,” what we have come to call Bacon? Obviously it would be physically impossible to go without bacon for 4 days, so that option is simply ridiculous.
Would you risk buying mass produced, store bought bacon. That’s pretty dangerous because, as you know, once that stuff gets into your fridge, it will eventually get moved into your freezer, then out the garage freezer and over time, it’ll be completely forgotten about and therefore never, ever go away!
Well, thankfully we now finally have “the answer for” you that we believe can help you get through the mistake of not ordering enough gourmet bacon to safely and comfortably get you through your month.
Special Thanks to Dan S. of Los Angeles, California, who had the interest, time, energy and clever idea to assemble a special forces team of 12 serious “Baconistas” to go out and compare / compile a rating system, grading (A) The actual quality of the bacon that is used, as well as (B) The over-all taste, quality and enjoyment of the menu item served up at 12 of the most visited fast food restaurants.
As explained by Dan the grading system is thoroughly logical and quite easy enough to understand. Each of the 12 members of the team of the rank the restaurants from #1 to #12, so that when scoring, #1 gets 1 point and #12 gets 12 points. Like in golf, the lower the score that you receive, the better the ranking the restaurant gets on the list.
Then all 12 grading sheets are carefully tabulated, and the restaurant with the lowest number … wins.
Let us know what you think of the results of Dan and his team’s investigation and we hope this helps those of you who usually don’t do the fast food thing, but simply have to get your “Bacon Fix” before you totally lose it. Thanks Dan.
Here’s what the team concluded when it came to fast Food restaurant with the best Bacon Meal available out there:
#6: Carl’s Junior
#7: Del Taco
#10: Dairy Queen
#11: Taco Bell
#12: Tie Between Sonic and Burger King

For a California-based group, I’m surprised Jack in the Box didn’t make it on the list.
Actually, I don’t think Jack is even better than BK.
..really? BK’s stacker kills the Wendy’s baconater(sp?) easy.
Sonic doesn’t deserve 12. Their bacon (around where I live) feels as if im eating an ogres overgrown toenail. Hard as a rock. Everytime.
I wrote up an article myself a while ago after a bacon binge with my friends. BaconToday and specifically this post if I remember right inspired me. Check it out if you want a second opinion.
