I usually don't do burgers, but DH loves them..So if I have to, it's In and Out for us..Me I'll eat Arbys plain roast beef with horsey sauce or philly cheese steak at the local mall..our A&W offers a great chilli dog. We don't do a lot of fast food. It's usually if we have a ton of errands on a saturday, but mostly we eat in..

Back in "the day", one of the local bars had 10 tacos and a pitcher of beer for 6 bucks. I had 18 of those bad boys. No problem finishing the beer though
Nowadays I'm lucky to eat 5 homemade ones... the jumbo shells of course

KFC is my favorite. They have the best gravy.
Also like Jason Deli. Nice fresh organic food. The Southwest Chicken Chili is to die for.
But then again those McD's fries are pretty darn good too

This usually comes down to two things: the phase the moon is in, or how much alcohol I have imbibed in the last 24-48 hours. I so crave Taco Bell crunchwrap supremes, and a close second are arby's curly fries smothered beyond recognition in horsey sauce. Sonic makes me horribly sick everytime- besides the fact I lived on corn dogs and coneys expecting my child. Otherwise, it is usually a regretful event if I get a wild, irresistable hair to eat something that takes less than 2 minutes to prepare.

We just had one of those places open up near UNLV campus. It's across the street from a truly excellent fast food-ish sushi place called "East Boy".

East Boy is very near an In-N-Out which, at burger time, is my first choice in 'fast' food. Their milk shakes are pretty yumm-o too!

It's pretty handy working so near the college campus. Always a good source of good, economical fast eateries.

Hardees has Ostrich? Wow I never knew and don't think there is one near me now.

I love Culvers for their butter burger but can't eat that often. I dont even want to think of how much butter they actually use!

I only admit this when I am alone in the dark and the rest of the house is asleep......

Popeyes Fried Chicken.

There, I said it.....now someone turn on the light.


I've also been known to toss back quite the sack full of white castles, as long as it is later than 11pm, and earlier than 5am. It's all about that 'dark' think.

My bad Fuddruckers has the Ostrich and Hardees has the buffalo chicken sandwich. Though I tend to like more the buffalo because of the spicy hot sauce.

Sadly, several Popeye's opened around her years ago and quickly closed again. In the brief time they were here, I really enjoyed their spicy chicken and red beans and rice.

Tell me how you really feel. The price of food in Vegas is so ridiculously inexpensive (last time I was there), I would sooner p/u a steak, lobster tail, salad & garlic bread for $8.00 downtown - to go, rather than buy a couple of burgers in L.A. A place I liked, for a hot dog (that came w a beer, yuck), was The Boardwalk on the strip for 99 cents. Don't know if it's around anymore. For $3.99, there used to be an all you can eat champagne buffet - prime rib & everything under the sun -- & the food was excellent. The hotel is probably gone now, but you pretty much have your pick of economical food in your neck of the woods.

We love Church's chicken, Long John Silvers, Jack in the Box, and Whataburger. DD loves 'fies' from just about anywhere. For pizza, we LOVE Pizza Patron, because their pizzas are cheap and big, even though they accept pesos now ...
