I dont buy the mcdonalds has brainwashed us theory.
Because, I grew up in the U.S., eating Mcdonalds frequently, getting happy meals and all that. But now that I am an adult, and ever since my teen
years, I immediately sought better food because lets face it.. McD's burgers are CRAP! tasting nowadays. Tasted better 15yrs ago.
So as soon as I could drive, I was hitting up the other fast food chains when I was trying to eat fast food. From all my experience in the subject,
this is what I came up with for the best tasting food from which chain:
Breakfast: Hardees has it on lock down. They own the breakfast time hours.
Lunch/Dinner (pre-late night): Arbys gets firstplace for sheer variety of foods which are all tasty. Chick Fila gets an honorable mention for having
real good chicken, but nothing else. Wendys is another to mention, but only certain items on the menu, and also certain locations have better prep
Late Night: Wendys becomes firstplace for late night merely because the only other places open as late are Taco Bell and Mcdonalds with a simplified
"late night menu". I'll goto Taco Bell and get steak instead of beef before I goto McD's.
Now, that said, McD's are still the King of fast food french fries. Burger King's fries suck, Wendy's are OK, Hardees are OK, but nothing compares
quite to the McD's lol. Arbys curly fries are excellent. But so are the potato cakes and the potato wedges. Were it not for their french fries, McDs
would get zero business from me.
And If I do eat from the McD's menu I get chicken. The higher priced chicken items to ensure a decent tasting sandwich or wrap or w/e.
PS: I am a 24yr old male, I'm 6 foot 2 and weigh a lowly 155lbs. I've always had a problem maintaining any level of body fat. I've also always had
digestive problems where I guess most of the fat gets .. shall we say.. bypassed out the backdoor? I apologize for the TMI ..
All this talking about fast food is making me fiend for grease. It's 10:25am though, so I doubt I could snag some excellent breakfast before the time
limit! Looks like I'd have to get lunch. Good thing there is an Arbys less than 2 miles from my house.
