    KFC in the UK is much nicer than KFC in Canada (although if they had the Big Crunch, that'd be ideal). Five Guys isn't great over here, McDonald's is alright, there is no Wendy's, and I've never ventured to Burger King. EU regulations probably make them all kinda \_(ツ)_/. I'd probably rank Subway the highest, except they haven't heard of swiss cheese.

    I somehow got the impression that take out curry was a big thing in the UK. Not sure why I got that impression now though.

    I've never been to a Five Guys and most likely won't ever try them. People have told me that it's mostly hype and not worth the money.
    McDonald's....uggg. All I ever get at McD's is a large coffee - and I only go there if the drive through at Tim Hortons is packed. All I ever get at Tim H is coffee too. Hmmm.
    Wendy's is alright. I've never been overwhelmed or underwhelmed by them...they just whelm I guess.

    Not all Subways have the same kind of cheeses etc. I think it's a regional thing.
    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    I Like "Frosty King" here except the should not be considered "Fast" food. They're a burger joint but they are real slow. And though the burger is good they have a tendency to be heavy handed with the salt shaker over the fries.

    "John's Burgers'" burgers are pretty good so are their fries.

    Burger King and Jack in the Box fries are usually cold by the time I get home with them, and I don't live far from them.

    Fast food is anything less nutritious than its packaging.

    Last time I was in a McDonalds I was appalled. The food was dismal, truly truly dismal. I didn't even have high expectations of it. The "assistant" needed help figuring out what I ordered. Sausage and egg muffin is obviously a difficult thing to understand. I don't know why they bother with having people at the tills, I can press the button for "Number 2 meal" on my own. There is a certain irony in a McDonalds meal being called a "number 2".

    I like pepper jack, but I wish it was thicker than vellum.

    Is there a Chick-file in the U.K. ?

    Re: Fast Food Restaurants That Have Gone Downhill

    My favorite is Chic-fil-a, but only because of their sauce and shakes.

    Did you know McDonald's fries and burgers will never mold, disgusting. You can watch youtube videos about it.

    All FF hinders when you're trying to train for anything physical, which is my goal right now so not eating much of ut, maybe 1x a month.

    Five Guys is expensive, $10 for a burger, $7 for the fries and $6 for a shake, fries are addicting.

    Just out of curiosity what is the price for a medium BigMac Macmeal ie. BigMac burger with medium fries and soda. Here it is around $2.85.

    Wow! That is a great price compared to the USA. I don’t know what it is but I’ll look.

    Just under 5 I believe, so quiet expensive by US standards (when I was in the Midwest I remember McDonalds was exceptionally cheap).

    I went to their menu using my location and they didn't have prices listed.

    It was kinda scary to see "Our recalls" on the top of their features list though.......

    The prices change state to state and city by city. You'll pay a lot more in a place like NYC or Los Angeles than you would in Scranton PA or Lawrence KS.
    I don't even want to imagine what the prices are like in Seattle.
