Fast Food Favorites

My brother Chris at Fat Burger eating a TRIPLE cheeseburger.

I'm so grateful that I live in a neighborhood with no fast food, but don't get me wrong I do enjoy a chili and fries from Wendy's famous value menu. And these depressing economic times that are killing off our restaurants one by one are feeding the bellies of the fast food restaurants. McDonald's and other restaurants that boast drive-throughs sees huge gains during recessions. Not only is the food much cheaper, but it's greasy, warm, and comforting.

My favorite fast food has always been, and will always be WENDY'S. Wendy's is always there when you need her. She's like me too, born in Ohio. And I've been ordering off that delicious value menu since middle school. My parents used to tell us we could only order off that side of the menu. I didn't mind! Wendy's was the first to sport the value menu in 1989! And the selection is unbeatable: chili, baked potatoes, Jr. bacon cheeseburgers, chicken wraps, chicken nuggets, and a Caesar salad people!

A close second would be In and Out Burger, but I just can't call it my favorite since it's only available out West. Rounding out the top five: 3rd Sonic, 4th Taco Bell 5th Burger King

Honorable Mention: Jack in the Box. They have the best tacos-they put a slice of American cheese in there! Plus they make some of their sandwiches on toasted sour dough bread.

But that's just me. What's your favorite fast food joint? And what's the best thing to order on or off the value menu.

My favorites:

1. Chick-fil-a
2. Taco Cabana (Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma though its owned by a company in NJ)
3. Whataburger

Chick-fil-a and Taco Cabana are about equal for me, but it's easier to find Chick-fil-a. Favorite item at Taco Cabana is chicken fajita tacos. I'm a Texas girl...love my Tex-Mex.
