Quoting WestJetYQQ (Thread starter):

DQ is not fast food, they take way too long.

My favorite would be Taco Bell or Wendys. Haven't tried much anything else cause we dont have much of anything else.

Fast food? I rarely eat it.

Well, when it does come to fast food, I'll eat Subway or Tim Horton's (even though Tim's isn't considered fast food, I don't think).

Have you ever eaten a meal at Burger King or Carls Jr.? Those must send you into a coma if so..  

In-N-Out uses far better quality foods and prepares them in a much healthier way than any of those joker joints. Again,

...too bad the closest one to me is several hours away   

Others, I like Taco Bell, Jack in the Box (not even in my state, nearest one is 500 miles away    ), and Hardee's

I also love A&W, but those are very far and few between.

It figures, most of my favorite fast food chains are not even near me.

Its interesting after 30 replies no one has mentioned McDonalds. I would have thought because they have so many of them SOMEONE would have mentioned them as their favorite. Personally I find the burgers at McDonalds pretty bad compared to Hardees, Culvers or even Burger King, but I do like the breakfest and premium chicken sandwiches at McDonalds.

Easy

Ruths Chris Steakhouse HANDS DOWN

Aged Filet Mignon, real garlic mashed potatoes, and that awesome chocolate mousse cheesecake for desert.

Damn you for making me think of that at work!

As for burger chains, GD Ritzys, started by some guys from Wendys was and is the best burger chain. They went under because people were not yet ready to pay 5 bucks for fast food in the 80s and are now coming back as Ritzys. They make thier own ice cream every morning, use fresh ground beef from local butcher shops, and just rock.

The ones in southern indiana and kentucky never shut down though.

Pizza, Pizza Hut probably just because they are pretty consistant and you can count on a good one most of the time.

Now days, speed isn't the sole factor in fast food (my opinion). You won't walk out of Ruth Chris spending less than 10 bucks like at just about every previously mentioned fast food joint.

Ruth Chris is a steakhouse, not a fast food joint. So wouldn't Steak Escape be more appropriate?
