You know what kind of burgers are the worst, Wendy's burgers. I hate how their all square and processed.

^ All burgers are processed in some way. Wendy's just made theirs square because...it's different.

Being the fast food junkie that I am, I go to all of them except Subway (don't care for deli sandwiches). My favorites, however, in no particular order, are In-N-Out, Carl's Jr., and Del Taco.

Whoa. You don't like Subway? You should at least add something fast-food oriented, that is somewhat healthy, healthier to a degree.

On a side note, I'm a big time fast food eater. I don't go a week without eating out.

My favorites: Subway and Del Taco.
I did enjoy Carls Jr, but when I ordered a chicken sandwich and as soon as I unwrapped the sandwich, a fly flew out...I never ate there again. It's pretty stupid for me to predicate my action on a mere fly, when in reality, I know that there's probably flies flying around touching food in a given Del Taco, etc, but that's just something I don't see when I munch down a good burrito, burger, etc.

Hahha.

^ I have no problem with Subway, per se, but I don't care for deli sandwiches no matter where they come from. Just a personal taste, maybe, but I don't care for cold meat, mustard, mayo, etc. I know you can get hot sandwiches there, but too much meat isn't so good for me.

With three young children, it's all about McDonald's. The pull of the Happy Meal is strong.

Someday, I hope we can upgrade to more highfalutin fare, like Panera. ;)

I've only been to Panera Bread once, but it was delicious. The one by my house has a Starbucks right next to it too, so it's double awsomeness!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^The odd thing about Panera is the worst thing they sell is their bread. Better make sure your dental plan is current, because Panera's bread is hard as a rock and liable to chip your teeth. Yes, it's actually a pretty good place other than the stale bread they name themselves after.

Apropos the burger discussion in the China thread:

I still think In-n-Out easily beats Five Guys. While Five Guys easily beats Fatburger, I was slightly disappointed in their product. They make a pretty solid burger to order, but I prefer the classic California burger that is more finely ground, loosely packed, and with the thousand island dressing.

Also, Five Guys *really* needs to stop using foil to wrap their burgers as it gives them a distinct metallic taste. Not sure why they haven't figured that out. Also, I think In-n-Out makes better fries than Five Guys. And Five Guys loses major points for not selling shakes.

Anyway, I know of a few local burger joints that put all these fast food places to shame. And I can make a better burger at home anyway using a food processor, two kinds of beef, and homemade dressing.

But I do really like these higher end fast food burger places. Even third string Fatburger. It's quite nice to pay someone else to do the work.

^You see, my problem with In-n-Out is that although I like their burgers, I absolutely hate 1,000 Island dressing (always order it without). I much prefer the Five Guys approach where they build your burger to order.

In-n-Out's fires are great, though.

^See, I got this recipe out of Cooks Illustrated for homemade California drive-in burgers and it includes an easy 1000 island dressing recipe. I think making it fresh makes a difference as In-n-Out's dressing is fairly watery and bland. But if you're not into the dressing, then it's not going to work for you.

I'm currently stuck making everything at home as I've moved to a new town with no Five Guys and I haven't found the good local places yet either.

In-n-Out will never come this far east. :(

Strangely, we have a Del Taco. I had no idea they were in Ohio until very recently.
