I don't like most fast food places I like Sonic burgers we can get them here with green chili on them I do love BKs Whoppers but only have one once every few years. Used to love A&W but those are far and few between. MC Ds I can tolerate I hafto. When on the road and you come across a good one the mom and pop burger stands can be really good. None where I live but the Lota Burgers are good but I think they are only in New Mexico. Not fond of KFC at all I think you can get better fried chicken at some of the grocery stores. I have heard that Popeyes is good but never have been where they sell it.

We have a pretty good Hardee's here. DH gets their soft shell tacos, and I get the Little Thickburger, which is just my size. They also have a tasty grilled chicken sandwich on sourdough bread, except they're a little heavy on the mayo...but most folks like that.

From McYuck's, I like the Egg McMuffin and the hashbrowns. I used to love their fries, but Hardee's new Natural Fries have surpassed them.

Taco Bell seems to be very popular. I haven't told anyone this story but...Right after my husband and I got married...on the way to our suite...we went by taco bell and picked two of everything!

I had been dieting for the entire year we were engaged and boy did it feel good to stuff my face with tacos. Lord knows I didnt see a scrap of food at the wedding.

For me fast food has it's place. Like when I am in the mood for it. I don't get the chance very often but when I do have that craving, I like taco bell bean burritos, Wendy's bacon classic or Micky's big mac. Throw a chocolate shake in with those and I have done some damage!!

We hardly ever eat fast food, it just doesnt fit into the budget, BUT my favorite would be Burger King! I dont like Mickey D's at all! I do remember from my childhood, Bojangles, LOVED them but that was only when I spent the summer in Va, they dont have them here in Florida either!

I don't go to the chain/franchise places much. About the only one I've been to in the last couple years is Quizno's. It was OK, better than Subway (though it's been awhile, there's a chance Subway has improved, it just seems unlikely to me)

That's not to say that I don't eat fast food. It's just that I have a much better selection available to me. Around here we have an excellent selection of mom & pop places that are much better in quality. I go to a lot of burrito shops/taco trucks, Vietnamese sandwich shops, gyros shops, noodle houses, hot dog shops and other sandwich/salad places.

For fast foods I'm a big fan of taco trucks (roach coach) and street vendors which are plentiful in my area.

For the second best tasting burgers on this planet I go to In-n-Out.
