McDonald’s is working to introduce a $5 value meal in U.S. stores…

* McDonald’s is working to introduce a $5 value meal in U.S. stores…

Just trying to keep you guys in the loop…

McDonald’s is working to introduce a $5 value meal in U.S. stores to help offset an increasingly challenging environment for consumers, two people familiar with the matter told CNBC.

The people said the $5 meal could include four items: a McChicken or McDouble, four-piece chicken nuggets, fries and a drink. The value meal was first reported by Bloomberg News.

The potential new offering comes at a time when low-income consumers are beginning to pull back on spending, particularly at fast-food brands. Mentions of low-income consumers on company earnings calls are at their highest levels in nearly two years, according to data from Bank of America. Executives from McDonald’s to Wendy’s to Dave and Buster’s have all noted the restraint in spending.

McDonald’s recently reported a mixed first quarter, with U.S. same-store sales slightly missing expectations. Higher prices helped grow average checks, but some consumers pulled back as a result of the steeper costs.

“Consumers continue to be even more discriminating with every dollar that they spend as they faced elevated prices in their day-to-day spending, which is putting pressure on the [quick-service restaurant] industry,” CEO Chris Kempczinski said on the company’s earnings call on April 30.

He added that McDonald’s has to be “laser-focused” on affordability to attract diners.

On the call, Kempczinski said the company is working on a national value deal in the U.S., and the company’s Chief Financial Officer Ian Borden said the U.S. leadership team was working closely with owner-operators in this environment. McDonald’s corporate and franchisees, who run 95% of McDonald’s locations and weigh in on such offerings, are often at odds over promotions that could eat into owners’ profits.

An initial proposal by McDonald’s for the $5 value meal did not clear necessary hurdles, and additional details are now being discussed, according to a person familiar with the process. A second person said Coca-Cola added marketing funds to the equation to make the deal more appealing.

McDonald’s declined to comment to CNBC. Coca-Cola did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Beautiful Loser- The Bob Seger Tribute/ The Casino @ Dania Beach (Dania Beach)

* Beautiful Loser- The Bob Seger Tribute.

Literally, 25 seconds ago I picked-up 2 tickets on-line for tonight’s show!

Beautiful Loser- The Bob Seger Tribute is definitely one of the best Bob Seger acts in the business!

The Casino @ Dania Beach
301 E Dania Beach Blvd
Dania Beach, Florida
Tickets: casinodaniabeach.com ($22.50-$60)

From casinodaniabeach.com:

Beautiful Loser is made up of 9 professional musicians with diverse but accomplished musical backgrounds, from Kentucky, Indiana, New York, Maryland and a few from right here in Florida. They all share the same love for the music of Bob Seger and that is evident as they re-create the music in an authentic and passionate way.
Add to this mix of talented band members the voice of Ken Hurley as Bob Seger. A veteran of the South Florida music scene (and of the Marines), Ken has earned a reputation as being a soulful singer with a great voice capable of singing anything and while that is true, it is when he sings what he really loves, that is really something special!

In 2018 Bob Seger announced his final tour, so none of us can see one of his legendary performances again. That is where Beautiful Loser fits in…

***** BurgerFi, 4343 North Ocean Drive, Lauderdale by the Sea 33308, (954) 489-0110.

Walked into this free-standing “fast food” burger joint last Saturday night—and immediately new that I was going to love it. The easiest way to describe BurgerFi–Shake Shack (see 8/1/10 review) meets Five Guys Famous Burgers (see 11/2/06 review) with indoor and outdoor “picnic table seating.”

Let me make this real simple…one of the best fast-food cheeseburgers and hand cut fries that I’ve had in a very long time.

At this stage of the proceedings, check www.burgerfi.com for menu/prices/photos.

I am telling you, if burgers and fries are your game, you are absolutely gonna love this joint.

As a 1949 “baby” I think I know a thing or two about the fast-food-burger industry. Trust me on this, old Jeff Eats has eaten his fair share of burgers and fries.

I think I know exactly what BurgerFi is “trying” to do here…The joint’s decor looks like a roadside fast-food burger joint circa 1950’s/1960’s with some-modern touches…throw in “gourmet” burgers and “upscale” fries-other stuff…and BurgerFi’s got all of the bases covered. It’s cooler looking than Five Guys but cheaper than the “upscale” full service-burger restaurants that are currently America’s latest craze.

Check Burgerfi’s site, there are a handful of pictures which will give you some idea as to what I am yapping about here.

Like I said before, if you like burgers, fries, hot dogs, custard…you’ll love this joint.

BurgerFi is open 7 days a week 11am-1am.

**** Campi Italian, 233 Northeast 2nd Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33444, (561) 576-8366.
Got a real good Italian joint for you guys to checkout, Campi Italian in Delray Beach.

Real simple tale to tell, last night, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats “discovered” Campi Italian (which recently opened) in Delray Beach and the joint’s food and service blew us away! Inside table/booth seating/ outdoor patio table seating, eat-at full liquor bar, reasonably priced appetizers/salads/pastas/entrees/desserts menu.

Just between you guys and me, Campi Italain is owned/operated by the same guy who owns/operates the iconic 40 year old Campagnola restaurant in New York City. The best way to describe Campi Italian, swanky looking white table cloth decor, hip super competent wait/management team, delicious food and a vibe that makes you feel as if you’re eating in an Italian grandma’s kitchen! Sounds- confusing? Go eat there and just maybe- you’ll “see” what I am talking about! By the way, the joint’s desserts are off the chart dynamite!

Let’s wrap-up Campi Italian by saying that its food killed, that it’s open, Monday-Thursday 5 pm-10 pm/ Friday-Saturday 5 pm-11 pm/ Sunday 5 pm-9 pm, that you can check menu/prices/info at campidelray.com and make sure that you leave room for dessert!
