All other fast food places!#0

Ok,
Since every single fast food place is getting its own "love me" thread, I decided to one-up you all! This is the thread to discuss all your fast food loves.
I will start.

For my money, nothing tops a visit to a local Sonic when I'm in town. It's a sort of drive-in type place where the waitresses roller skate out to your car (well, some of them do) to deliver the order which you placed at the park-n-order spot.
I love their brown bag special, which is a burger (excellent!) fries and a soda...and their sodas...mmm. They introduced me to my favorite drink: Dr. Pepper with vanilla and cherry syrup. wow.

If you're on the west coast and not the southeast, however, nothing tops In-N-Out Burger. Oh.My.God.

Mmm...In-N-Out....


I just love the classic McDonald's. Makes my fat molecules happy.

Yum...In 'N' Out...one of the few things I miss from Southern California...they still cut their potatoes in front of you! How cool is that?
It's hot and it's monotonous. I want my glasses.

For us Midwesterners: The best fast food burger out there is CULVER'S BUTTER BURGER! Available is Wisconsin and the Chicago area.

And if you are ever in Nebraska, you must stop at a RUNZA restaurant. Runzas are incredibly delicious meat pies - Mrs. Lovett would be proud!

I second In-N-Out (When they FINALLY opened the one on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, my friends and I just about came in our pants.) However, you also can't beat Jack In The Box with a stick. (Aside from that unfortunate little-brats-dying issue...but, hey, it could happen to anybody). The Ultimate Cheeseburger makes me drool just typing its name.
Suzanne: I never use catalogs. I'd rather go in the store and see all the salespeople groveling and sucking up to you. Julia: Pardon me, I never knew they were so solicitous at the K-Mart.

A few years ago, in the Pacific Northwest, there were several children who fell ill and eventually died from E. Coli poisoning, gotten from eating contaminated beef from Jack In The Box. Quite tragic, really...it'd make a *lovely* musical. (I mean, hey, if Bat Boy can be a show...*shrug*)

I have yet to try Culver's, but I hear they are similar to Steak 'n' Shake. For me, nothing beats a Whataburger.

"The Ultimate Cheeseburger makes me drool just typing its name."

Jailyard, you've brought back such memories... if Clown Alley on Columbus was too crowded, we'd go to Jack-in-the-Box for that Ultimate Cheeseburger... oh... my... it was the juiciest, most delicious thing in the world at 3am...

CHICK-FIL=A!!!!!!!!!!!
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

Ohhhhh jrb! Don't you miss Whataburger??? I loved it on a wheat bun with mayo, grilled onions and picante sauce. And some of those awesome onions rings.

And what about the shakes at Beck's Prime?

*sniffle*

For those not from the South....Whataburger is a "fast food" chain (though not that fast) that cooks every burger made-to-order. The burgers are all 1/4 and each one is made specifically the way you want with wonderful ingredients like sliced jalapenos, grilled onions, fresh bacon or picante sauce. Their chocolate shakes are made with Hershey's syrup and they are open 24 hours. The chain originated in Corpus Christi, Texas.

I don't know how wide spread they are nationwide. Rally's. I have only seen a few in Indianapolis, but have not seen them anywhere else. I love Rally's!

Yes, KMF, The Varsity is an Atlanta institution for chili dogs, onion rings, and fried peach pies. Can't fill up on the grease very often, though, or there would be too much of junglered to go around! :)
