Give Me the Runza

I pick on Runza every now and then, especially with regard to their strange advertising practices. But other than a general sense of “it’s not as good as it used to be”, I don’t have too much to complain about with regard to their food. (Then again, I’ve only eaten there a couple times in the past five years.) I quite like a good Runza, as do many Lincolnites.

The folks over at Foodpocalypse wondered why we go gaga for Runza. Are Runzas actually good, or are we locals just conditioned to think they’re so fantastic?

The meat-filled buns have been a part of my diet for as long as I can remember. The firm, chewy bread, like warm skin in my hands. The smell of meat. The soft squish of crinkle cut fries. When I hold a runza, I hold something weighty and substantial. I think of snow days, and family picnics, and movie night with my brother. For fast food, Runza isn’t that bad.

Find out what they conclude.

I don’t go to Runza for their runza sandwich, I usually can make them better home made. I go for what I consider to be one of the best quality fast food cheeseburgers.

Can’t stand Runza’s or the smell of them. When I went to UNL, you could still smoke at Memorial Stadium. I would rather sit next to a chain smoker than someone with a Runza.
