One Burger King in Glendale wants its customers to have it their way - right to their front door. Since April 9, the Burger King on North Central Avenue has been delivering a handful of orders each day - the first Burger King in the state to do so, said franchise owner Bob Stevens. "We were chosen to be the first Burger King franchisee to have delivery in the state, so it's quite a feather in our cap," Stevens said. Following in the footsteps of delivery programs in Miami, Washington, D.C., and Houston, the fast-food company is bringing its delivery program to California.

I was very disappointed in your wording for the headline of the new North Shore Burger. It read “North Shore comes up a bit flat.” As a small business owner for three generations, your headline was very detrimental to this new business. We want to encourage the entrepreneur. Most of my friends and family are always looking for a restaurant that is not a chain when dining, and here your headline was very unnecessary. I know you were trying to be cool and reference a surfing term, but in general it was not that cute.

Casual dining patrons prefer the Cheesecake Factory by far, according to a new report suggesting that customers - - even faced with tough economic times - - are still willing to swallow a bigger bill. Revenue at the Calabasas Hills-based company is up year over year in the second quarter. Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, P.F. Chang's China Bistro and Carrabba's Italian Grill rounded out the top five in the study from Market Force Information . The consumer research firm last month released quick-service restaurant data showing smaller companies like Five Guys and In-N-Out pushing McDonald's and Burger King to the backburner . Researchers in the casual dining study polled more than 4,500 consumers - - more than three-quarters of them women - - and then divided the votes for each chain by the number of restaurants.

I have a bone to pick with Donna Huffaker Evans’ review of Steve’s Burgers (“Beefy competition among burgers,” Aug. 1). I don’t think it’s possible to judge three burgers fairly, or accurately, by eating a couple of bites, driving to the next chosen burger joint, nibbling again, and finally, chowing down in the confines of one’s vehicle. What kind of review can you give to any one of these burgers? Not a good one, I can assure you. I confess I’ve never had a burger from the Great White Hut or Senior Nacho’s, but I have had one from Steve’s Burgers, and they’re beyond delicious.
