Help me feed a BF who likes QUANTITY

Ora | | Sep 19, 2007 07:35 PM

This is NOT the way I eat, I like quality over quantity, and will pay any reasonable price for quality. But, the BF (a P/T body builder) is obsessed with going to restaurants with large protein portions and relatively low prices (think 1/2 chicken meal at Chirpin Chicken, I know, I know...he's not from NYC). Boy, have I had my hands full coming up with places to eat where we will both be happy--him with the portion size and me with some semblance of good food. So, help me feed this hungry man while satisfying my need to find good quality food, while keeping an eye on value. Oh, he LOVES burgers if that helps. And yes, I took him to Le Burger Joint and while he liked it, he totally tripped on the "high" prices there (I know, I know...) as he had to have 2 burgers to feel "satisfied". Suggestions?? Westside locations preferable, but open to all neighborhoods.
