Fast Food Favorites
I know that fast food is terrible for you. I know it is. But that doesn't stop me from having it every now and again. Usually after a really long day we'll go grab something to eat. Lately, I've had one too many long days... and the fast food has filled our house.
I wish I could say that I felt bad about this, but really? I don't. I love having someone else prepare a meal for me - even if it's just a burger, fries and a drink. Hey, I didn't have to lift a finger. I'm good.
We've eaten at many different fast food places, but I really only have one favorite. I used to love *Wendy's... but the last time we ate there it was gross. Really, really gross. As in "I don't know if I can ever eat there again" kind of gross. Plus, there was the time I was in the bathroom with Baby Girl washing up and we watched an employee come in, do her business (okay, we didn't watch THAT part), and walk out without washing her hands!! We left without ordering.
I'm not very fond of McDonald's because, well, it's McDonald's. Isn't that a good enough reason? They do have a chicken sandwich that I like, but, I'm not fond of ANY of their burgers.
Arbys is okay. But the buns for the sandwiches are always flat - like the employees are in the back taking out their frustrations on the poppy seeds or something.
Taco Bell used to be good, but they've changed their menu in the last few years. And now? Everything seems to be covered in that nasty yellow nacho cheese. That stuff is icky.
I know everyone rants and raves over In-N-Out burgers, but, um, I just don't get it. The burger was fine. But nothing that I was super excited over...
Carl's Jr. is yummy. The burgers are big and juicy and the fries are decent. It comes in a close second on my list. But my favorite fast food place ever is...
A&W. I know some people really hate the place, but I love it! The fries are always cooked just right - crispy on the outside, nice and soft (not oily soggy) on the inside. The burgers are yummy and who doesn't love A&W root beer? My favorite thing is to go inside and order my root beer in a mug. You see, they freeze the mugs and then when they put the root beer in, the drink gets all icy and slushy. In the heat of the summer, a treat like that is simply divine!
So, there you have it. I have waxed poetic (or something) about fast food. And now, dear reader, it's your turn. Tell me, what's your favorite fast food joint and why do you love it so much?
*As for the places I dislike, it may be a local thing. Perhaps the In-N-Out in another area is much better. Maybe the Wendy's in another town isn't so nasty. There's a possibility that the McDonald's in another state is wonderful... well, okay, probably not, but you never know!
