i haven't had fast food in a long time but feel like gorging on some

i went to Wendy's the other day to try their "new" fries - basically they're just natural fries with the skin still on the ends - they were edible but not good enough to go back for again. nor were they crispy like advertised. their commercial states that people prefer their fries "2 to 1 over McDonalds" and there's just no way that's true

for burgers, i like the Whopper and Double Cheeseburger from BK and the Big Mac and Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese from Mickey D's. for chicken items, i like Mickey D's McNuggets and BK's original chicken sandwich.

for fries, i strongly favor Mickey D's over anyone else's but i would like to find other good fries

i'm not interested in the higher-end burger places like Five Guys, Shake Shack, Smash Burger, Fatburger, In and Out, etc. i just want to know if any of the regular fast food places are making anything good these days.


- should i just stick to what i know (McDonalds and BK) or are there other places who make similar burgers and fries that taste better?

- are Wendy's burgers any good? i know they do the square patty thing but not sure if that makes them bad?

- is Carl's Jr still good these days? i remember both their burgers and fries being pretty good maybe 20 years ago or so?

- is Jack in the Box still really bad? i vividly remember their hamburger patties tasting awful and so i would only get odd things like tacos, fries, and taquitos from them

- are Popeye's fries any good? is their chicken sandwich still selling out everywhere or is that fad over?

- what about Wienerschnitzel? are their chili dogs and corn dogs any good?

The Popeyes chicken sandwich fad is pretty much over, you can get that now pretty easily. I only go for their spicy chicken tenders

I don’t really have hamburgers at fast food places mostly chicken. I enjoy the McDonald’s hot and spicy chicken sandwich along with their fries.

I know you said no high-end burger places but for me if I want a hamburger I’m going to five guys

Dairy Queen actually has decent food. Don't forget about a local little dinner or pick up place often times the food is better and your not feeding in to big food corp.

My go to place is Whataburger here in Texas is king. Everything is fresh and tastes great. Fries usually really good.
Diggity swears by In/Out burger and Shake Shack but he's from Cali so.....

5 guys is good but damn, talk about salty food. It overwhelms everything. I think I drink 2 gallons of tea when I go there to offset the salt.

Mcrib is a forbidden word in our house. My wife loved them... I mean more than she loves me or the dog. Then I showed her a video of how they were made. Damn near lead to a divorce. She still sneaks out to get them when they are available. We never talk about it anymore.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about Whataburger but haven’t tried them yet. I should have ate there when I went to Phoenix 🤦🏻‍♂️
