I saw this on another blog quite a while ago, and I thought it sounded like a fun post to do. I rarely ever eat at fast food places anymore, but I do like to go to them sometimes. Here are some of the places I go to occasionally and what my favorite things to order are.
I usually always order a Big Mac with fries or the 20 piece Chicken McNuggets (with Buffalo and BBQ sauce). Nothing else can replicate the taste of delicious McNuggets. Unfortunately, they started making my stomach queasy when I would eat them, so I usually opt for the Big Mac now instead because that doesn’t really bother me. I still like to indulge in the McNuggets sometimes though.
BK is nowhere near as good as McDonald’s, in my opinion. However, I will stop here occasionally. I do like their fries, so I usually order some of those along with a Rodeo Burger. If not that, then I like to get the Chicken Fries. However, the last time I got them they were really dry and overcooked. I also like that BK has onion rings, something McDonald’s doesn’t have, so I sometimes get those as well. Although I’ve definitely had better.
My order is really simple when it comes to Taco Bell. I usually always just order several of the crunchy tacos. They’re my go-to, and it also reminds me of my childhood when my dad would come over and play card and board games with me and watch movies, and he would buy one of those big 12-pack taco boxes for us. Sometimes I also like to get the chicken quesadilla, which I really like.
My order here is always the same. I get the burrito bowl with white rice, black beans, chicken, a combo of mild and medium salsa, cheese, and lettuce. I personally find Chipotle’s food a lot more flavorful than Taco Bell, however the one in my town is completely out of my way, and it also closes before I get off work, so I don’t get to go that often.
I personally find their subs to be highly overrated. However, other than Sheetz, they’re the only sub place open when I get off work. I usually get either the Spicy Italian or the Steak and Cheese on Italian bread with lettuce, tomatoes, and onions. I think their subs are overpriced for what you get though, and they really need to do something about the mediocre bread. The steak is pretty bland, so when I get that I have to also spice it up with sriracha sauce or jalapeños to give it a little zest and flavor. If I had another option after work, I would go there. Unfortunately, when you work 2nd shift, many places are closed when you’re off the clock and ready to chow down.
For a chain sub shop, I actually find their subs to be really delicious. We have one right across from where I work, so I will occasionally go over and get something. Although, I really don’t like to eat when I’m at work because of my stomach issues. When I do visit, I love to get the Classic Italian sub. I love the meat they use on their Italian’s, and the dressing is delicious. I sometimes get the Spicy Monterey, which I also enjoy. I also love their bread, unlike Subway’s.
I actually feel a little weird including Jersey Mike’s on this list because it almost doesn’t even feel like a chain or fast food place. The food here is really terrific. The ingredients are decent quality, and they even slice the meat right in front of you. I love to get the Italian (Mike’s Way – with oil and vinegar and oregano). I also really like the Big Kahuna (which is a steak and cheese with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and jalapeños). Their subs are full of flavor and always taste fresh. They’re a little pricey, but their food is worth it.
This is a regional place here on the east coast. We have a multitude of these here in my town. It’s a gas station, but it’s also fast food. You go in and order what you want on touch screens, pay, and then they call your number. I definitely think they overprice a lot of their menu items. Everything is pretty mediocre and typical fast food quality, but they’re practically charging restaurant prices on some of their items. Their subs seem to be a pretty big hit, but I’m honestly not a fan of them. One thing I absolutely love here, though, is their hot dogs. They’re cheap, and you can order certain recipes or customize them however you like. I like my hot dogs many different ways, so I usually switch it up. Their Firehouse Dogs are my favorite though. They are hot dogs in a pretzel bun, and they have pepper jack cheese, sour cream, habanero sauce, onions, and pico de gallo. I also really like their fried appetizers. Particularly the mozzarella sticks and fried pickles.
