French Dip Tue, 05/24/05 6:47 PM (permalink)
In the last couple of days I saw a promo on the Food Network ( I think)that says the French Dip was indeed invented in LA, but not at Philipes (sp) as I had thought. Unfortunatly I can't remember the name. Anyone else see this or have info?

        I'm starting to think either you work at Arby's or are a shareholder. Arby's is the pits, at least where i live where our Arby's is run by an Indian family who probably don't eat much beef anyway. Tell us about your fascination with Arby's.

            Phillippe"s French Dip is good. And you could write a novel just by writing down the conversations you overhear.

                  OK....now that's funny.

                  I had to read through a ton of other posts to get to this one, but it was worth it.

                                            It's been a controversy for many years between Phillipe's and Cole's P. E. Buffet. I'll take Phillipe's----but that's just my opinion. either way, they're delicious!

                                              I'm starting to think either you work at Arby's or are a shareholder. Arby's is the pits, at least where i live where our Arby's is run by an Indian family who probably don't eat much beef anyway. Tell us about your fascination with Arby's.


                                              Not all Arby's are owned by Corporation they can be owned individually. So depending on you location they can just own that single store. Try to find an Arby's owned by US Beef Corporation, yu just might see a BIG difference

                                                  no way no how what kind of person would even do that I don't care how bad a customer treats you that is totally uncalled for. If I saw one of my employees do that I would automaticly write them up

                                                    Hm.... What if Mr. Arby knew you said that...?


                                                    Close! Arby's is named for the company founders, Leroy and Forrest Raffel, the Raffel Brothers, also R.B.

                                                      The difference between Coca Cola and Arbys is, Coke is a cultural icon. Arbys is a warning sign for crap ahead.

                                                      Roy Rogers defined the standard for fast food roast beef. It was good.

                                                      As far as your ruminating about spitting in people's food, I'd ask you to grow up but even I have realistic expectations.

                                                      Then again, the threat to have your food spit on by a simpleton moron only reaffirms my assertion that Arbys stands for "Crap ahead."

                                                      Your mileage may vary, but not by much apparently.
