What cheezburger should I haz?

I'm asking for recomendations from the local cheezburgologists. Lunch time is coming up for this hungry night shifter. The options are...

1. Burger King
2. McDonald's
3. Wendy's

There's also a 5 Guys but I think is closed by now.

Also, plan b is a can of spaghetti that haz been on my desk for the better part of the year.

Wendy's because it is less horrible than the other choices. And you can get a frosty.

Wendy's, perhaps a chile is in order as well, providing you plan to be awake a few more hours. Then again, the other two offer dollar options, you can load-up for seven bucks.

Wendy's. Get the baked potato or 2 and a salad. ALL of the burger joints should be avoided whenever possible. Ditto on the canned fake Italian. If unavoidable, get as healthy a meal as you can and skip the grease/calorie/death bombs.

BROWN BAG starting tomorrow!

Lawl, Wendy's is just as bad as the rest. Fast food bacon is haggard.

Thing I like about Wendys burgers are that you can eat them like a barbarian and let the grease run down your arm. Nothings better.

Red Mill - but you might not be back in time to finish the shift.

Wendy's: salad+potato+chili, or spicy chicken

BK has the better tasting meat, but Wendy's has the better overall taste. The clown should be avoided at all costs.

Should have made this a poll. Of the list above, I"d go with Wendy's. Besides they have had, low calories gourmet sandwiches when you kick the cheeseburger habit.. Not on the list, I'd vote Fudruckers for those on the left coast.

White Castle! A dozen of those hockey puck size burgers are great although I've often wondered where they buy grey meat.

Got one in Tulsa. Never been, 'cuz the wife went to one as a child and claims that they had sides of beef hanging for all to see. 'Tis one place I'd like to try, but won't.

All meat would be grey if it wasn't laced with nitrites. Unless you just killed it.

I know this is a local thing but "InNOut" is the best. BTW, 5 Guys stole the InNOut concept (InNOut has been around since the early 60's). InNOut burgers are all made to order. Fresh beef, not frozen. Best ingredients. Employees are well paid and they work hard. There's a cult following and special way to order burgers...

http://www.tiburon-belvedere.com/cgi...cgi?c=In_N_Out

Florida doesn't seem to have good choices - don't you have a local burger joint (like "Tom's Burgers) nearby. Of the 3 listed they all suck!

I worked at Wendys for a fairly long time and I still like the spicy chicken.
That is the only thing I will miss when my stomach forces me to go back to vegetarian. Oh and pepperoni.

There's also a lot of folks who drive around with custom modified In & Out bumperstickers.
