FAST FOOD!
Whats your favorite fast food joint and why?
Favorite menu item?

We've got McD's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Taco Johns, KFC, Arby's, Culver's, Hardees (Carls Jr), Chinese buffet, many more.
What do you eat when you have so many choices and so many things sound so good?

I often find myself driving down the strip, passing ALL the fast food restaurants two or more times undecided, until I'm out of gas, and thats where I end up at the gas station and just settle for 2/$1 hotdogs and a cappucino.

Roberto's Taco Shops.
Why?
Possibly the best tasting fast Mexican food on the planet and also the healthiest. Better even than most of the high-end cloth-napkin joints. Unfortunately they're only in Cali and Nevada -- as far as I know.
Favorite menu item?
Numero 'siete' -- HUGE carne asada plate with rice & beans and 4 corn torts.

Nationwide chains? Wendy's. Good friggin' burgers, fresh and custom made.

Chicken? El Pollo Loco. KFC's new roasted chicken dazn't even come close.

Shlub shlammiches? Subway. Not as good as most mom 'n' pop Italian joints, but okay when you're in a hurry, and they're everywhere you look.

Eeewww! That's nasty, man. They're usually worse than McD's.
McD's coffee ain't too bad in a pinch...
Well, if you must.

I can't believe McDonald's is still in business. Worst fast food burgers ever.

I like going to McDonalds because I can go in there with a feeling that I'm ripping them off.

For example:

I can get 10pc Chicken McNuggets for $3.49, or 4pc chicken Mcnuggets for $1.
So would you rather have 12 McNuggets for $3 or 10 McNuggets for $3.49?
Thats 25 cents a nugget or 35 cents a nugget. Which would you rather pay?

Another one:

Big Mac (sandwich only) for $2.99, or a "Poor Man's Big Mac" for $1?
The Poor Man's Big Mac is a Double Cheeseburger from the dollar menu, hold the ketchup & mustard, add Mac Sauce and shredded lettuce.
They can keep their sesame seeds and middle bun, I'll save a $1.99

They can keep the whole damn menu. I wouldn't eat there if I were starving.

Well -- maybe an Egg McMuffin once or twice a year. And the fries -- not horrible. Tell anyone this and I'll rip your heart out.

What are you talking about!>?!>>!>>?

McDonalds has lots of good things! Their new coffee bars make some damn good coffee. Has Starbucks way beat, and might be giving Dunkie's a run for their money, too!

Big & Tasty w/ Cheese (similar to the old McDLT): Delicious
2/$1 apple pies: Delicious
Sausage Egg & Cheese biscuit: Delicious.
Breakfast hashbrowns: Delicious

Need I say more?

I'll admit, if you wanna REALLY good burger, I'll have to have a Whopper. They just taste too good to pass up.
Next time you go to BK, order your burger FOTG (fresh off the grill)
They'll do it for you, all you gotta do is ask.

Wendy's is good. I like their dollar menu. The Jr. Bacon cheeseburgers are the best value (2nd best, really, behind the Whopper Jr for 99 cents) in Fast Food. Wendy's would score higher on my list, but the whole square burger on a round bun just aint right, and Frosties are impossible to drink with a straw unless you wait at least an hour.

Keep it up, Cholesterol Boy -- another few years and your arteries will be as stiff and clogged up as mine.

Wrong!

I can do BK Whoppers from time to time, but the dollar-menu burgers and chicken at just about ANY FF joint are real gut-bombs -- nowhere near the same quality meat & buns as the regular stuff, which are already marginal.

Carl's Jr's Guacamole Bacon Six Dollar DOUBLE Burgers are okay too.

Fast Food YUK............
The only thing fast about fast food is how long it takes to exit my bowels... My family runs an Italian rest. in NJ My mom, brother, and brother inlaw do all the cooking, I work the front of the store and most meals take less then 15 minutes to cook form scratch.I know I'm spoiled we have been in business for almost 50 years.When I'm in the mood for something different I will drive around and look for the small mom and pop type places versus going to a fast food joint, with one exception.Once every 2 years I have to have White Castle murder burgers. I love those things even though they hate me, they go thru me faster than a laser beam,but boy are they tasty.
BTW Hot Dogs from a gas station???? I would buy them and then throw right in the toilet bowl and cut out the middle man...LOL

Regards

The Sour Dough Burger from Hardee's (known as Carl's Jr's west of the rockies) is a darn good one.

They used to have one called the 'Frisco Burger, which was sour dough also. I don't know if thats the same sandwich with a different name or not.

East Coast Mom 'n' Pop Italian joints RULE the food world. I could spend a buttload of months in NYC, Philly and North Jersey just grazing on Italian deli food and Philly Cheesesteaks and nothing else.

Mmmmmm . . . Dammitol, I'm gettin' HONGRY!

Thinking about NYC makes me think about Dirty Water Dogs (vending cart hotdogs) Mmm. And an overpriced Snapple.

Vending cart hotdogs are commonly known to the NYC locals as "dirty water dogs", or simply, "Dirty Waters"

But I like them Greek cart vendors, too. Some of the best Gyros are made on a city street by a guy who isn't even Greek at all!

And not just Gyros, FALAFEL!! Dood loves me some Falafel. Best place to get it is a joint on St Marks. If you're on St Marks, it's pretty hard to miss if you're looking for it, but easy to walk right on past if you're not.

Where is St Marks?
St Marks Place is in the East Village of Manhattan, what would-be 8th street, running between Avenue A and 3rd Avenue.

It's a street in NYC well known for it's "punk" atmosphere, with
several boutique shops catering to punk clothing,punk music, etc.

It's not uncommon to see a tattooed guy with a 3 foot high spiked mohawk with body piercings from head to toe,

...or even TWO tattooed guys with 3 foot high spiked mohawks with body piercings from head to toe HOLDING HANDS!!

Aha. I'll check 'em out next trip there -- for the gyros, of course.

Lower Manhattan (aka Tribeca, just south of St Marks) is a world all its own -- with food to match everywhere ya turn. Dammit, I'm getting really hongry.

On the eastcoast we a sub-shop chain called D'Angelos that make fantastic steak n'cheese subs--- shreaded lettuce, lil mayo, soft bread,feel "strong like Bull" after eating one
Anyone see that documentary about the guy who ate nothing but MacDonalds for 30 days and the effects on his health, I think it was called "30 days" or something.

the trouble is people know how bad they are, but still out of convenience or laziness use them..
In the UK there was once a piece in the Daily mail newspaper on Mcdonalds on how they water down there Coke syrup or their milkshakes were waterd down, they even had a phone in Radio 2 after Bill CLinton had his heart surgery, yet despite it being said it was down to his love of fast food and poor diet over 90% who phoned in still said they would go to McDonalds...

Even the Salads as they come with that dressing are fattening,

i like the caption on KFC " YOU CALL IT CHICKEN, WE CALL IT CHICKEN, LETS CALL IT CHICKEN" it was anti KFC poster that was being put up around London north circular road sometime ago.. made me smile...

I have a hankering for Wendy's Spicy Chicken sandwich from time to time. No mayo, but add pickles. Hits the spot occasionally.

However, for sandwiches...POTBELLY Sandwich Works-Mmmmmmmm. They just do somethin' right.
