I think you are correct. I got carried away with the fast part of the description, which applies to the preparation of the food.

The only thing I get at Wendy's is the spicy chicken sandwich, I think it's very good.

I'm a big Sonic fan, purely because they make the greatest chocolate cokes. Their tatertots with melted cheese are good too.

Sadly, there are no Sonics here. Our fave place is called Boomer's. It a local place. They have waffle fries. yum. I guess it's not exactly fast food, since they don't have a bunch of burgers sitting under heat lamps. They have a drive up and they make your order fresh.

We don't have a lot of the places around me. No Hardees or White Castle or many I see on TV.... And BK is the only show in my little town
I can eat at any of the typical ones around me except BK.... can't stand that artificial smoke flavor or whatever it is.

Where I go and what I get all depends if I'm in the mood for a Big Mac or a few dollar double cheesburgers, maybe a double cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo from Wendys (and of course their chile).... I can handle them all , but I absolutely LOVE Taco Bell, or like I call them, Taco he!! Not as good as I make, but then what fast food is? It's more a craving than anything I think.

My name is pacanis and I'm a taco fiend

Every once in a while, I crave a McDonalds Quarter Pounder with Cheese, and I love their fries.
I also like Long John Silvers now and then.
Wendy's makes a good burger most of the time, and I also like their baked potatoes.

When we're traveling, we eat quite a few meals at Cracker Barrels. They're not really fast food, but one can count on a good meal there. DH and I both usually need to stretch our legs anyway.
We get by with a little help from our friends

But none of those are anywhere near me now! :(
