Pick what I eat.

I'm hungry. In 16 minutes, I get off work, and can go somewhere to eat.

Your goal: Name fast food places. Convince me why I should go there to eat.

Dairy Queen is ruled out because I already ate there yesterday, and I like some variety.

I said fast food places, not food types.

Chinese fast food. Inexpensive, and you can hit another fast-food joint half an hour later.

Any other ideas?

I'm only answering this thread because you helped out in my hacker thread...otherwise I'd say "pick your own damn food place".

I almost NEVER eat fast food, so there are only a FEW that I'd even allow to go into my mouth anymore.

My 1st vote, Moe's Southwest Grill. Kinda like a Mexican version of Subway. You can get a luscious burrito or similar type dish, and choose ALL fixin's that go into it (type of meat, exactly what things get added). The meat is very tender....some of the best southwest/Mexican food around for fast food.

My 2nd vote, Subway. Decent food and not horribly fat filled like burger joints. I love a veggie sub with chipotle sauce.

Ugh, I watched a man gorge himself on one, and he kept unabashedly licking the sides of it after each and every bite. ....

Big names, smaller names, whatever. If it's a smaller name that's not available, I'll mention it.

I've had a baconator before. That was... nasty. I like bacon, I like cheese, I like beef, but not that much. One patty, one piece of cheese, 2 pieces of bacon, and some veggies, please.

The nearest Moe's Southwest Grill is 37.6 miles from work, and about 20 miles out of my way from home.

Subway, hmm. Also has possibilities. (I like their seafood subs, myself.)

Eww.

But, Wendy's does have Frostys. That's a plus in this heat.

Screw it, it's Wendy's. Dammit, I want a Frosty.

OK, so now pick what I order.

Option #1:
Single with bacon and cheese, the small combo, with a frosty in place of the drink

Option #2:
Southwest taco salad, with a frosty.

Be quick, you've got one or two minutes here.

Do the combo and dip your fries in the frosty. It just may surprise you.

Cool. Let me know what you think.

I'm dead serious....I loved this. I remember my bro thought it sounded nasty until I got him to try it once, then he got hooked on it for a while too.

Ya know, you could've just run through the "Banned Titles" thread. Between the laughing and the "eewwww" factor, lunch would have been the last thing on your mind.

hehe In-n-out burger. Several years ago I went from LA up to Muir woods via Hwy 1 - with my brother and SIL, Mom, me and this heavy woman who was my SIL's aunt. She farted her butt off badly. In the van (BOOM), in the hotel rooms (BOOM) - walking in the pristine Muir Woods (BOOM) - I ran in front of her finally and left them all in the nuclear dust, in STORE AISLES (BOOM - and of course I'd walk into the fog - as well as another customer WHO looked at me like I did it) - she let them fly in the shared motel room too - BOOM) - I was so PO'd!!! By the end of the nearly 2 week trip - we landed back in LA - and she (farter) announced she was going out with her one friend out there to IN-N-OUT burger and MmmMm boy did she just love the fried onions on her burger. I thru a fit. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

"Mom, please - I'll pay for a separate motel room - pleassssse!"

Her answer. No It might upset my brother's wife.

We laugh at it now, but farting Aunt Pat was a fareak of nature. Sat in the middle seat of the van with a pound of fudge just letting them fly while Mom and I hid in the back seats behind our tour books making almost sign language about BOMBS AWAY.

hehe, so much for my In-N-Out burger experience! hehe
