    I consider Arby's one of the relatively tolerable fast food chains. At least a lot better than McD's and Jack-in-the-Box.

    I think I've tried their Reuben. I like Reuben in general, and I don't recall being disappointed by theirs.

    46 years old here. I don't even know whether an authentic Reuben should come with a crisp dill pickle. I just like mine to have good corned beef and sauerkraut.

    They used to have excellent food back in the day when they would cut the beef right off of the roast. I have fond memories of my mom taking me there before visual / physical therapy sessions I had to attend as a child.

    They also had excellent turkey club sandwiches years ago. I would still go to Arbys up until a year or so ago when they left downtown Pittsburgh. There is one just up the road from me but no reason to go since there are other options and I am rarely in the area for lunch.

    That one really stuck in the memory. I googled it instantly.

    As a former Southern Californian, my folks took me to the Arby's location in Los Angeles as a child. It was a huge hotrodder's hangout, like something out of American Graffiti. As I recall the food and experience was amazing. Ever since then when I've given them a chance again, they've never measured up. As so many things corporate, the quality has slid, the service went to nil and now all I can think about when Arby's is mentioned is microwaved cheap lunchmeat covered with Nacho-style processed cheeselike food product on a bun with less nutritional value or appeal than styrofoam. YMMV.

    You just made me recall another Arby's memory.

    We went when I was very young, and they used to have special seats for the kids. They were barrels with saddles on top, which we thought were pretty cool (I imagine the lawyers would not allow it for liability reasons now). My brother and I were on opposite ends of the table on the barrels, when all of a sudden he became sick, and I was just able to dismount in time to avoid the lava flow rolling across the table--yuck!

    Despite that experience, the food was pretty good back then, then it got rather poor, and it has improved with their new menu. It's pretty good for fast food now, though I seldom eat any fast food.

    I was disappointed with Arby's Reuben. Bread was soggy, meat didnt resemble pastrami by any big city standards, kraut was ok.

    In N Out is the best burger out here.
    Pollo Loco has some interesting stuff.

    If you order at a counter and they give you the food to go in a paper bag or styrofoam container, I think it can count as fast food.

    Chipotle is good. I also like Five Guys. I'm assuming we're talking about national chains?

    For fast food here it's Cafe Yumm for me. Mostly I like Yumm Bowls, rice, beans, veggies and yummy sauce.....so good!

    If you buy a franchise and put it in a trendy, hip location you'll have a great opportunity to make a solid income.

    chipotle is dynamite. plus i love their business practices.
    Five guys is amazingly delicious, but can only be enjoyed sparingly because it will kill you.

    This.

    I've been to Five Guys twice in the last year or so.
