DD&D on Food Network has been a revelation as far as "fast food" restaurants are concerned.
If your fast food is worse than ours, then it must really be bad. Maybe you just think it's better because it's so popular here. There must be a lot of people who like it because they are always crowded and making lots of money. The only thing I will eat at McDonalds's is breakfast. No KFC, no Burger KIng, occasionally Arbys, and just salads at Wendys. I don't consider myself a picky eater by a long shot, but I would have to be starving to eat fast food.
We used to have a chicken place here called Kenny Rogers Roasters. They cooked the chicken on a spit over a wood burning fire. I loved it. Unfortunately, no one else did and it wasn't open very long.
