Castelo Branco is famous for his appearance in the 2004 comedy Harold and Kumar go to White Castle. Still, it’s also known for something a little less funny.

Countless White Castle customers have posted their harrowing experiences with the burger chain on iwaspoisoned.com. The consumer-driven website, designed to report bad food experiences, helps researchers improve food safety.

White Castle claims that its burgers are made from 100% beef, so there are theories as to why these tiny burgers make so much noise in the stomach. Popular Ask has an entire page dedicated to questions about the chain’s hamburgers. One thing to keep in mind: if you plan on eating at Castelo Branco, clean up your afternoon, “just in case”.

The Complaints Department lists hundreds of concerns from disgruntled Sonic Drive-In customers, including burnt hamburger buns and dry, overcooked chicken. Poor customer service and soggy food are also high on the list. To confirm these complaints, a YouTube video posted by Babble Top lists the ten foods you should never order at the Sonic Drive-In. Among foods, they reported popcorn chicken as dry and poorly seasoned, and French fries were reported for their soggy and unappetizing taste.

Daily Choices claims that a former Sonic employee said the chicken was often kept out of the fridge for several hours before being refrigerated. This is cause for concern, especially since the FDA states that raw chicken should be stored in the refrigerator at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Additionally, Mashed posted a video to YouTube sharing what former Sonic employees say you should never order at the burger joint. One claims that the ice cream comes in bags with the inscription “Real ice cream ten percent.” These bags are emptied into an ice cream tank, and the tanks are often not cleaned between uses, leaving stale, rancid milk in the machine.

Burger King

Burger King was runner-up in the fast-food world as the most popular hamburger chain after McDonald’s. But the chain lost that spot to Wendy’s in 2021. Burger King has seen its sales drop steadily in recent years and its customer fan base is dwindling.

According to a 2020 study by Rave Reviews, Burger King is one of the most hated fast food brands in the world, along with McDonald’s and KFC. Business Insider also conducted a study of 3,000 readers to determine which fast-food restaurants consumers refused to visit and found that up to 13% of them refused to eat at Burger King.

On Quora, a Burger King customer gave his opinion of the fast-food restaurant saying, “I don’t know what happened; in the early 2000s they were crap. I recently gave them another chance; the Whopper was a sloppy mess, mostly tasting like ketchup mayonnaise and soggy, soggy fries. Very sad. Burger King should be ashamed of itself; even McDonald’s is better now.”

These complaints, and Burger King’s vain attempt to lure customers with fun, “dirty” marketing gimmicks like the poop emoji ice cream and musty Whopper ads, worked against the company. Ace Metrix reported that the “Moldy Whopper” ad made customers crave the burger less. One customer said, “It was pretty gross. I don’t like artificial things, but it’s not an appetizing ad.”

Burger King made an attempt in 2022 to increase sales and regain customer trust with new Whopper Melts and Cheesy Breakfast Melts. Nonetheless, The Washington Post stated in a negative review that the new sandwich bread is chewy.

In April, Dairy Queen launched its first new hot menu items in 20 years. The new Stackburgers, however, didn’t exactly get good reviews. feeding place the takeaway food criticized the sandwiches, saying they contain “flat cheese”, jerky that has a “fabricated taste”, and mediocre toppings. Just Food Reviews called the burger “just OK”.

business insider the fast-food restaurant’s opinion was not at all flattering either. The publication noted that Dairy Queen’s burgers tasted burnt, the buns were soggy and the texture was “unsettling”.

The Complaints Board shows that Dairy Queen has hundreds of unresolved complaints, including some related to food service and food poisoning.

One of the comments reads: “Well, to be honest, I will never go to the Dairy Queen again!” The customer went on to say that he ordered a dry-flavored hamburger and is battling an upset stomach several hours after consuming it.

Maybe DQ should just stick with ice cream.
