Started eating McD’s this year for the first time in decades. It’s not bad to grab a couple $1 McChicken sandwiches on the way home after a long day of work.

Love me some Wendy’s, Taco Bell, as well

Steak N Shake might be considered fast food depending on the individual (I mean a traditional sit down restaurant with a drive through as well), but this has always been my favorite item: The Frisco Melt

If anyone wonders what the Frisco Sauce is: its the same 1000 Island salad dressing they put in their salad. Source: worked there in high school.

It's amazing. The internet is saying one sandwich is 750 calories, but considering how generous we were with the frisco sauce, I would add alot more to that. Plus fries and a shake. Probably a whole day's worth of calories in one meal. So worth it.

I love Fast Food. I just can't eat it as much anymore (age.)

Love Taco Bell
I'm down with McDonald's too from time to time. Carl's has good burgers. Wendy's had good burgers, although I think they used to be better.

I watch YouTube video of McDonald's from around the world, or other fast food chains, and I cant help but feel we get mega shafted here in the states.

DENVER — In-N-Out Burger is one step closer to building its first restaurant in Colorado.
The company announced on Friday that it had closed on the purchase of two parcels of land in the Victory Ridge development at Interquest Parkway and Federal Boulevard in Colorado Springs.

Considering I've flown to Las Vegas for the sole purpose of visiting the In-N-Out, opening one in my city, BEFORE Denver, gets my mojo going.

Americans, is it true that Domino's is garbage-tier pizza in the USA?

In England a Domino's is considered a treat by many people. Still a super unhealthy, dirty fast food item, but revered. It's also so expensive that nobody in their right mind buys it without a 40-50% off voucher (which you can always get).

Domino's is OK but it is considered fairly crap in Australia as well. The vouchers are popular.

We have a lot of Italians here though, so we are harsh critics on pizza and coffee.

I like the basic stuff at McDonald’s and Wendy’s. I don’t eat it much but when I do I always enjoy it. Have not ever had gastric issues from it.

Angry whopper:
Unbelievably good.
Its the only thing at BK worth getting.

Their cheap nuggets? You get what you pay for.
Their original chicken sandwich? I guess if you have undeveloped taste buds and want the most generic thing possible short of a chicken strip, yes its good.
Their breakfast? Dunno since nobody orders it except maybe their french toast to shut up their crying 5 year old.

Bro I rarely eat fast food but a brotha can tell you something.

When I do eat fast food, I hightail my fat azz to McDonald's or Wendy's, Popeyes, Checkers, or Auntie Anne's if I'm in a shopping mall. That food goes in man especially the McD's fries... I could eat those for a whole day lol.

I love fast food

Shout out to Checkers. Underrated fast food, helped me sustain through my grad school days.

Of course it sustained my weight as well...

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Dominos is my go-to pizza joint, we actually just got one in my town last year. Before that, I used to always stop in to the nearest one when I was in the "big city" on business.

Their medium pizzas are $6 each (if you buy at least two) so for $12 I can feed my entire crew. Their online rewards means I get a free medium pizza every 6 orders. It's definitely the cheapest / best bang for your buck around, but thankfully I love the taste and prefer it to any other local pizza joint.

Its not top tier or anything but wouldnt call it garbage Little Caesar's fits that a bit more. While I like Dominos , when I say I want pizza I never think of Dominos if that makes sense . It's so different than what we get from a traditional pizzeria in Brooklyn that it could be classified it's own thing

They're not bad but there's not really a great reason to get them if you have a good local pizzeria you can support instead, which is the case for me.

Yeah, it's not hard to squeeze all three meals into 8 hours. 9am breakfast, 1pm lunch, 5pm dinner. Probably wouldn't even be enough food, really.

Here's the Arby's Traditional Greek Gyro. It's a thing of beauty.



😋
You would love a dirty donner keeebab




Though my preferred fast food is a chicken shish and salad, which as luck would have it is one of the healthiest meals out there
