I'll say Subway. Cold cuts, fresh veggies (and they're usually pretty fresh at the ones I go to), and bread. Simple.

I don't understand when people tell me they HATE subway. How can you dislike a ham and cheese sandwich so much?

I like Subway's bread, but their meat always has a strange aftertaste. I think it is the preservatives they use or something.

I don't like Subway at all. Mostly because of the bread - crust is too hard. For grinders, I like D'Angelos a lot and Blimpies is ok, too.

Favorite fast food is McDonald's, though. Big Mac, no pickles or onions.

(1.) Roy Rogers (Double R Bar Burger) --- No stores near me any more so they lose their number 1 spot.

1. Wendy's (Bacon Deluxe)
2. MsDonald's (Quarter Pounder)

Doc, do you remove the pickles and onions yourself or do you actually ask the McD people for a custom order? I used to like Quarter Pounders without cheese but I gave up ordering them that way because at the stores around me the people's heads would explode whenever I did that.

I don't think of Subway as being fast food, at least not in the same category as McD's and Yack in the Box. I like their honey oat bread a lot. Plus, you can pile on a lot of veggies, particularly fresh spinach.

Here's my favorite sandwich order at SW: Turkey, with cheddar, or swiss, toasted on honey oat. Then add avocado, spinach, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, black olives, and top it off with a little salt and pepper. With avocado you don't need any other dressing. Then if you get a footlong, you've got lunch and dinner, all for about 7 bucks. Eat fresh, bitches!

As far as actual fast food goes, about once every 6 months I crave a Burger King Whopper. They're like crack. And every time eat one I feel like Tyrone Biggums.

That sounds like a good sandwich. If we're going with just burger joints and taco bell as the definition of fast food, then I'm going with Arby's.

I eat a shitload of fast food. Its terrible.

That being said, most places have their ups and downs. In my recent experience, Burger King has very few ups. They're the new Hardees.

Hardees on the other hand has come quite a long way in the last decade. There's none in my immediate area so if I happen to be around one and am considering a fast food lunch, I'll usually go there.

Wendy's has been going downhill for quite a long time too. They just unburdened themselves of Arby's (did you know they owned them? They did.) and have tried to re-do their burgers and presentation. Its an improvement, but from the two locals I've visited, they still need work.

Arby's is still pretty reliable. The Market Fresh sandwiches in particular beat anything Subway has to offer. The wheat bread is welcome.

Subway is a great bargain. But something about their food is tasteless, or generic, or something... Like its been through the time machine in The Fly or something. Nearly every other sub shop chain has a better product, particularly when it comes to the meats. However, its hard for them to compete on the $5 to $7 price point... But one wonders what's being sacrificed to hit that price point.

The new Taco Bell Doritos Taco? Two thumbs up!

Do you guys have A&W anymore? They opened one in my town a couple of weeks ago and it's better than the other fast food chains around (McDonald's, Wendy's and Dairy Queen - I'm not counting Subway. Burger King closed last year). Their Teen Burger is my favourite (extra pickles, no onion). Unfortunately they no longer do the carhop thing (I remember that being my favourite part of A&W when I was a kid). I wonder if that's been completely phased out or if there are still some who hang your food off your window.

Thanks, Caps!

We had an A&W that stayed open for all of 6 mos and then closed up shop. It was a little out of the way, but I did happen by it a couple times during its short life and liked it a lot. I recall a the burgers being extra cheesy.

Sonic does the carhop thing - a pretty average fast food experience overall.

Is it just me, or do I the sudden urge for Chik-Fil-A most frequently on Sundays, when they're busy being antiquated and closed?

I haven't eaten at an Arby's in forever. I remember them having sandwiches that were about on par with the kind sold in little triangles in vending machines, I guess they've improved?

Downton Arby's:http://screen.yahoo.com/downton-arby-s-28723019.html Not brilliant, but pretty funny.

It's weird that you guys think of A&W as having better quality food. I used to work at one in high school, during the Regan Administration. It was fun then, but there menu has hardly changed at all in 25 years. The one's in CA are like walking into a depressing time machine. They have a few modern things like garden burgers and the ability to pay with ATM cards, but the decor is still 70's and the employees all have haircuts from 1982.

Here are the places where I just refuse to eat:

McDonald's
Jack in the Box
Carl's Jr
Wendy's
KFC
Taco Bell
IN-N-OUT
I-HOP (not really fast food, but still gross)
Chick Fil-A

Surprised to see Chik-Fil-A on your list. The food there is sort of plain-jane, but I've never considered it gross. The waffle fries are pretty good.

The Chik-Fil-A's around here are always mobbed, and they constantly have family-friendly activities going on. Its actually great marketing, but there's something slightly cultish about the place. Add to that the Sunday thing, and the fresh-faced young people stocked behind the counters like Mormon mannequins, and the proceedings become almost uncanny.

A balloon animal for you? Uh, no thanks.

I was recently forced to go to Subway - it was the only place open when I was at a workshop on a Sunday - and they have changed their bread which is now really good. I hated the smell, taste and texture of the old bread so I was super surprised. I don't eat the cold cuts there although I will have the chicken "breast." My fav is the veggie patty but not too many places carry it. I tried their new egg salad which was actually good.

I like Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich but for burgers I have to pick a place here called The Works. The menu is insanity

http://www.worksburger.com/Menus/OurMenu/tabid/105198/Default.aspx

but the burgers are to die for.

If I had to pick a place you guys have heard of, and we don't have half the places you guys are mentioning, I would pick Five Guys. We have just had four open in town.

Chic Fil-A is the best fast food in my opinion.

They're mormon owned, so I think that's the source of some of their PR troubles. For me, it just meant that I was pissed they were always closed on Sundays.

I didn't realize they actually were Mormon-owned when I made my above comments.

Yeah, I heard about some anti-gay stuff with them. I think there's a need for a protest poster about "eating more beef". I wonder what the graphic for that slogan would be?

Five Guys is delicious. I always considered them fast-casual though. If locations don't generally have a drive-through its not really fast food in my book - except Subway.

Chick fil a is most decidedly NOT Mormon-owned.

They are uber-Christain, straight outta Georgia. Truett Cathy is a hard-shelled Southern Baptist.

But it is a pretty good sandwich, the restaurants are clean, and they treat their employees well. So more power to them, I guess.

If I didn't have anything to compare it to I might like Subway, but when you grow up around a mom and pop hoagie shop on every corner it's like comparing jar spaghetti sauce to real homemade "gravy" made by a little old italian woman.

Eh, depends on how you look at it. It's all Christian'ed up, or the employees of a fast food place get Sunday off - which is great for them, no matter how they use it.

It's definitely a tradition for Truett - I've often wondered how many of these "perks" or "prejudices" (depending on the cut of your jib) will continue once he kicks the bucket. See what happened to Walmart. Made in America - HA!

Bojangles is pretty much only in the south. Rainy and I discussed it years ago. I'm a fan of them too, although the menu, like KFC's is kinda limited, and biscuits get boring pretty quick.

Although every once in a while they carry a limited time Kielbasa biscuit which is awesome. Of course, they refer to it as a sausage biscuit since half their clientele probably doesn't know what kielbasa is.

Okay. No moose jokes.

I went to Dairy Queen today.
Got the Supreme BLT.
Not too shabby at all. (haven't done burgers there for some time)
For the bacon lovers, this is the shizz for bacon, lettuce, tomato sammich.
Bacon was thick cut, not fried to a shattering crispiness and a double layer.
And aplenty of it.
Like this
[linked image]
Except cooked. Just enough so it had bacony nom, nom, nomability.
Not explode into bacon dust bits first bite.
And a banana malt.
Mid-afternoon lunchy goodness.


Another place I remember is Steak and Shake.
None in Minnesota though.
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and more I think. Bing it up?
It was like a '50s-'60s malt shop and they did burgers. Not steaks.
The burgers were ground steak. And when cooked and done up, the burger tasted like a steak.
Delish. Great onion rings and shakes too.

I don't get the fascination with 5 Guys. How's about serving me a single burger and a reasonable amount of fries at a reasonable price instead of charging me $12 for extra food I don't need or want. Hmmm? Also - season the patty, please. Not worth the price unless you're Andre the Giant or you want to "split it." Which I don't.

I would ask Zodiac MF'er - why not stop going to Burger King, dude? Nothing else to twit about?
