I don't like Wendy's or McDonald's.  The last time I got an Egg McMuffin from McDonald's it was awful.  Tasted like cardboard and rubber on a bun.

Wendy's is awful too.  Tasteless.


Other than that, I haven't had anything from any other popular fast food joints in a very long time.

"Listen punks! Jack's employees have been working their buns off to make the best burger, shakes, and fries around!"

I had the absolute worst fast food experience ever at a Jack In The Box. It was some years ago, and I can't believe they're still in business.
I'd like to hear about what happened.  My husband has been getting me stuff from there lately on Saturday evening - Jumbo Jack and two tacos.

It's like bottom of the barrel fast food. Several notches below McDonald's.

I like Chick-Fil-a, though haven't eaten there in maybe 20 years.

I like Arby's too...but it depends on the particular place.

OMG how could I have forgotten to list Subway here?  It is vile.  Baking bread is supposed to have a wholesome, delicious smell, yet Subway somehow makes it smell like Satan's ass.

Hi I'd like a tuna with provolone on Satan's Ass.

I think it's safe to say that people would be repulsed at horrified at 80% of all restaurants if they got an in-depth view behind the scenes.

Taco Bell is terrible.

I don't balk at any fast food, Taco Bell is the exception to that rule. It's like dogfood in a hardshell.

Taco John's, on the other hand, is terrific.

Yep.

When I first started working I had a few jobs in food service. McDonald's, Denny's and Boston Market. These places would lose millions of dollars and possibly go out of business if customers saw how everything was really done. Especially at McDonald's. That was 20 years ago though, so McDs standards may have changed but I doubt it. They're probably worse now.

Speaking of appending comments, let me tell you about my Jumbo Jack on Saturday.  :sarcastic:

It was awful.  Whoever made it didn't even put ketchup on the thing.  Nothing was on it.  It was dry and tasteless.

The bun was the best part. :codger:

We're going back to Zipp's.  It's a locally owned place.


And thanks for telling me about Carl's Jr.  The pictures of what they have always look so good and I've been wanting to try the place.  i won't bother now.

Wendy's,

I have not had it in years. But I stopped by a few weeks ago just to try it out. Thinking it had gotten better. That was a mistake. After a few bites of the burger I threw it out. Fu***** gross!!

Really? I'm not a fan of burgers in general but generally Wendy's isn't too bad unless you get a poorly made one.

I usually found Carls Jr was acceptable. They're Hardee's franchises in the Midwest. I like 5 guys. My kid used to work there and gripe about cutting spuds into fries. Can't beat the concept of your fries starting out the day as a spud in a bag. Plus they dump enough fries in the bag that their regular sized fry is like an extra large from anywhere else.

Obviously it depends on who is making the food. But I will not be going back.
