Favorite Fast Food Joint

What's your favorite fast food restaurant? Or to put this another way, what fast food restaurant are you most willing to tolerate?
Mine is Arbys. I love their roast beef sandwiches and their jamocha milkshakes.

I'm thinkin....most all of them are "Heart Burn City" so I don't frequent them very often. I rather just grab a "peanuts in my coke" and keep movin

Still love the hash browns at Mickey D's, in all their greasy glory.

Also like the fruit turnovers at Arby's in the morning.

And the taco salad at Taco Bell isn't bad, if you throw away that little packet of crispy strips of unknown origin and get extra sour cream instead.

Growing up there were no fast food joints, so I never got in the habit of eating at them. Because of that, when I had a family, we didn't eat at them even though we lived in the metro Washington, D.C. area, which was filled with them.

Now we live in an area with few or no fast food places so, once again, we don't eat at them. That's the long answer.

I'm with Uncle Bob, just grab a handful of peanuts and a Coke and be done with it.

i like wendy's

Maybe once every a couple months, I like Mickey D's fries and Big Mac, Wendys frosty,Arbys French Dip, and Taco Bell's Taco Supreme, pinto's and cheese. I do like my fast food but we very seldom have it, and they are all about 3- 4 miles away!

I must admit that we eat 95% of the time at home. How much of it is convenience or processed food? I'm not very good at using those products so mostly I stick to the basics.

I can say that on movie day, it was McDonald's and a Disney Movie at the Cinema. And they produce a good movie about every six months.

They burned all the Kids out on popcorn, juice and Magic School Bus at school. So it was Reading Rainbow, Donut Holes, and Milk at our house.

When we are on vacation, it is Pizza Hut.

During the festival days, we buy smoked tenderloin sandwiches and bottled water.

I'm not against Fast Food Restaurants, Mom & Pop's Home Style Restaurants, or Fancy Dining. Etc. Etc. It's just more pleasant to finish a meal and lounge at home and then tackle a project or do homework.

I am pregnant so watch out "lol".
I like to get a quarter pounder and fries at mcdonalds. I also splurge and have there shakes too. Pizza at papa ginos. I forget what it's called, but it's a steak burrito with rice in it and other stuff at Taco Bell. I haven't had these in awhile, but do get them once in awhile.

My first favorite is our Maidrite and my second choice is Culvers, (love those Butter Burgers).
