I go 1x a week at least. I never order much because it's usually in between daily things when I'm in a hurry.
I try to order the lowest calorie things from the$1- $2 range because I'm cheap; Jack in the Box tacos are amazing, because you get 2/$1.

It's fast, it's food, it used to be cheap and convenient but not anymore with 99 cent menus gone and the price of a combo has more than doubled in my short lifetime but the vaule of the food hasn't gone up much at all...

I just wish they could make it look like the food in their advertising instead of the strange lump you see when opening the packaging

As a vegetarian, most fast food places only offer a salad or fries or maybe a baked potato on their lunch menus. 90% of what fast food places offer has meat and is off my menu. So I really don't go to them that often unless I'm traveling and don't have many choices.

I wish the East Coast had a few of the West Coast chains for some variety. For instance El Pollo Loco has an awesome smokey black bean burrito that blows anything Taco Bell makes away. In-n-Out has what they call a "Grilled Cheese" -which is basically one of their buns with the cheese melted on it and then stuffed with the burger toppings you want, which is a whole lot better than anything I might find at McDonalds.

I know this feel as a Pesceterian the most I can get is a salad from like Wendies. Taco Bell use to offer Shrimp Taco that I would buy. However I don't know if this counts but I did come across a place today called Habachi that I never noticed and it was right by McDonalds. it doesn't have a drive through but makes some damn good sushi/asian food pretty quickly.

If I'm going out on the road for a trip early in the morning ill go to Tim Hortons, or coming back from a concert or event, yea I'll hit up a Wendy's or McDonald's.

Honestly though, they shouldn't exist. It's now getting to the point where it's not cheap to go get fast food. I mean yea you have the dollar menus, but it's just garbage food. It's really helpful when you go out somewhere far where you live, and you really can't prepare a proper meal, but other than that, I really don't care for it.

If I can, I avoid all fast food. But if I need too, haven't ate anything for the whole day, then I will buy some. I'll feel like shit afterwords, but hey it fills me up

Personally I like fast food. I don't eat it all that often because it costs more than just cooking something myself and it tends to have more calories. Still, I generally like the taste of most fast food places. Delicious grease!

I'm currently on a diet so I haven't eaten much lately.

People need to get over this idea that any particular place is safe though. Just look at Chipotle. They claimed to be so healthy and safe but nope! Unless you farm it, clean it, and prepare it yourself then you're always at risk when you eat anything. Even if you did go through all the steps, you're still at risk, all you've done is minimize the risk.

If you walk into a fast food place and it's filthy, just turn around and leave. If the people working their are dirty or appear sick, leave. If the bathroom is awful (seriously, this is a big warning sign) then leave. You're never going to be 100% safe but a lack of cleanliness is a huge warning flag.

I worry more about cleanliness where I eat than all of these food warning fads and, weight aside, I'm healthy. Heck, most of the so-called healthy food is what makes me sick! I'm allergic to soy and low-fat cooking oils. Real meat and lard all the way!
