Once I took these for granted, having only to jump in the car for a few minute ride to satisfy my craving. Since now I have to board a plane for a 5+hr ride including full frontal grope security screening, I can appreciate them (served along with fresh cut french fries and a strawberry shakes) even more so.

What's yours?

Where do you live Vaark? I personally love me some Five Guys or Boardwalk Burgers. There french fries are the shizzle. Sadly since its beach season down here I have completley cut that stuff outta my diet, sad face.

I love five guys burgers as well, two minute drive from my house. I've cut it out my diet, getting ready for the summer too. :wink:

I'm mostly in SoFL too although I have property/close family in SoCal also. Maybe The Double Double set the bar too high for me, but IMO, if you like Five Guys, you'd absolutely love In N Out!

You know, there are certain threads that I regret get moved out of the main in the blink of an eye.. it's ironic that I want this thing moved yet here it still sits :idk:

Ok I am a big fan of Wendy's burgers.

Also love sonic's as well, similar to Wendy's ..five guys too..Not a fan of Five guys fries..

I like to order good ol fashion hamburgers from Wendy's kinda like a slider.. with onions, ketchup and mustard..( Dollar menu version)

Now dont get me wrong i love extreme type burgers as well...

Chik Fil A is a must..You gotta go there if you love Chicken Sandwhiches fried or grilled..

White Castle is all time for me..So good only been once tho.

I had a DQ Flamethrower burger before..Was maybe the best fast food burger I ever had..But I was really hungry and only ate their once..

But I guess my favorite of all of them is Chiptole..

I love it, cant get enough of it..

I really wanna try IN N Out burger, also wanna try Steak N Shake..Heard those are both pretty good..

i don't eat hardly any fast food anymore - i actually enjoy cooking. but i will say i CRAVE me some taco bell in the wee hours of the morning after a long night of drinking. i don't know what it is about the beef and potato burrito - but i dominate like 4 of them late night sometimes.

stopped going so much once i found out they use saw dust as meat filler. dicks.

I never had a chance to eat at in-and-out burger. I've always wanted to try it but last time I was in Vegas food was the last thing on my mind.

I don't know if is still there but when my buddy was going to UCF and I used to visit him there was a place called Whataburger that was a hangovers best friend. That place was phenominal

In terms of trashy fast food, Taco Bell is my spot. Crunchy tacos and nachos bell grande for me, please.
http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2011/05/2086108550_e349bf68cf-1.jpg

In the upper echelon of fast food, I like Five Guys even though the menu is limited. There's a place here in Port Saint Lucie called Wicked Burger (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wicked-Burger/255438237537), they make some righteous stuff. And they have karaoke on Thursdays.


I have a bucket list of places I want to try, including The Varsity (http://www.thevarsity.com/) in Atlanta, the Shake Shack (http://www.shakeshack.com/) (they have one open at the Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach), Willie Mae's Scotch House (http://www.seriouseats.com/2008/04/the-best-fried-chicken-willie-maes-scotch-house-new-orleans.html) in New Orleans, Geno's Steaks (http://www.genosteaks.com/) in South Philadelphia (I've already hat Pat's and I loved it - Whiz wit with cheese fries, please) and, of course, an In-N-Out Burger. Preferably in Southern California near the beach.

I would like Wendy's a lot better if they would toast there buns. I hate not having a bun toasted.
I worked at Sonic for 9 years so you can imagine how much I like to eat there these days. I used to love it.
Chick Fil A is pretty good. I like there waffle fries.
I think White Castle is kinda gross. It seems like there buns are always soggy and again, they are not toasted.
I don't think DQ is all that great.
I have never heard of Chiptole

I have tried Steak & Shake and while there burgers are just OK, there shakes are great!

Hardees is not too bad either if you are talking traditional fast food.

WeVie
05-19-2011, 07:55 PM
Oh and how could I forget my second favorite burger place. Cookout! They have really good burgers and they are super cheap. You can get a burger, two sides, and a drink for under four bucks I think it is.

My third favorite is Fudruckers but there seems to not be many of those left.

Too bad I don't eat any of this stuff anymore. I have 15 more pounds to go and I am gonna go totally insane for about 4 days. Ice cream, burgers, brownies, french fries, cake, bread with my meals again. I am excited!!

Buffalo Chicken Pizza is amazing.

Also if you have every been to NY or the surrounding states there is a little grocery store called Wegmans..


You can pretty much get any slice of Pizza you want, Chinese, Subs, Sandwiches, Sushi...Its all there and its all good.

I used to eat at Hardees a lot. There breakfast menu is great! They have some pretty good burgers too. They actually have a new turkey burger that is under 500 calories. I tried one and believe it or not, it is pretty good but even 500 calories is a lot.

I love Turkey Burgers I eat them alot at home..You can get really lean ones or really fatty ones...If you cook them right they are good and good for you..
These burgers are just insane...You eat one of these your done for the day.... When I get burgers I try and get no cheese and no mayo..These 2 things back a huge calorie bunch as well as Fat and Saturated Fat.. Most fast food places tend to put a ton of mayo on a burger too..

I love Mcdonalds Plain old Grilled Chicken Sandwich...I eat it alot for dinner..Just the Sandwich is 350 Calories not bad..No mayo of course..

Only problem is its high in Salt..which is an epidemic all itself with fast food.

As a more healthy, gringo-ized burrito, Chipolte is pretty good. However, when you're used to standing in the middle of a Mexican roach coach lunchtime line of day laborers waiting to order your burrito, enchiladas, tamales, tacos, or whatever, you tend to get spoiled by the real deal. :idk:

The Chicken is all time no doubt about it...But the Barbacoa is like pot roast, its silky and juicy..So good. Just thinking of it makes me mouth wata man. SHABA! I dont know why Jamican accent came into my mind but whateve. The pork is a little on the dry side but it has a different type texture than the chicken and is almost as good for you as the chikcen. Next time maybe get a mix if you dare.. I really dont know how Chiptole is not authentic tho? Everything is fresh except for the tortilla which hey you gotta understand that..Most authentic type mexican restaurants cut corners to save money..Everything at chipotle is organic and local...

If we are talking about Mexican food, there is a sit down restaurant pretty close to the Charlotte airport called Miguel's. that place has awesome everything.

As far as fast food, all the fast food I really eat now is Boston Market because it is actually pretty good for you. I normally do Boston Market and Pollo Tropical a couple times a week.

Wendy's has an amazing crispy chicken sandwich from the dollar menu, as does McDonald's.

I'm glad nobody is talking about fast food Chinese, because that is the worst of all fast food.
