I don't like any of those. Especially "Maccas".

I prefer Kelly's Kangaroo Kafeteria. ...Home of the authentic Kangaroo soup and burger.

Yuck,

I can't believe people eat the crap from fast food companies. This is a sample ingrediants list of some of food items these fast food companys use as their products.

"100% Beef is ok" - I hear you scream - well which part of the cow is it from?

Double Yuck! Next time you chow down on your fast food rubbish think of the garbage you are eating. Thanks America for providing us with such wonderful food.

Never been to Hungry Jack's or Maccas, but I think Burger King has really improved and I would take it over McDonalds and most other fast food chains any day.

Not to say that I would prefer other, more nutritionally fulfilling meals!

Maccas = McDonalds

Hungry Jacks = Aussie Burger King (Although they operate both stores here with similar products and different advertising.)

I don't recommend any of 'em. In two weeks time I'll be in a chippie on the south coast of England, throwing a large cod and chips down my throat. Pass the vinegar!  

But if I really did have to choose, it'd be

1 - A classic hoagie from Wawa (if you don't live in the Philly area, you'll be none the wiser)
2 - See 1
3 - See 1 + 2

McDonalds used to have the best fries. Then they got cocky about it and they have gone downhill. They are all soggy and limp now. Nobody really has EXTRAORDINARY fries now, but I like Burger Kings the best. Also, Burger King actually puts lettuce on their cheeseburgers, something McD's doesn't. No wonder they sell em for $.39, They dont put anything on em.

I can't decide. I don't eat it that often, but I think BK's burgers are better, but MickeyD's has better fries, But BK has better Chicken Tenders, so I guess Burger King wins it by a fry length.

I refuse to eat garbage from fast food chains with the exception of Subway, so, if I was on a desert island and all I could do was choose from the three you have quoted it would be Burger King.

McDonalds is absolute crap in every country that I have eaten it in.

CC,

I agree, I prefer a nice salad sandwich to processed crap. And I mean an Aussie salad sandwich which has all different types of salad on it and no revolting mayonaise.

Don't Aussie's like mayo as a rule ?

I thought it was loved the world over.

CC,

Put it this way. If you buy a sandwich from a take away store for lunch they don't automatically slather mayo on it. Usually people have mayo on a chicken snitzel & lettuce sandwich. But if someone is having a salad, ham & cheese, etc etc they don't usually have mayo on it.

I think the only time we ever used mayo (and this goes for my friends and others I know) was to make potato salad or coleslaw.

There may be some aussies out there who slather it on everything, but I never see it here in Sydney.

My favorite is Chick-fil-a (hope I spelled that right). They have great food. Second is Taco Bell.

I like Chick-fil-a (yes you spelled it right) too. I have only ate there once but it was good. They only have them in the southeast, which is why I have only ate their once. Anybody like Arby's? I like their roast beef sandwiches. Taco Bell is alright, not a favorite though. I ordered a mexican pizza there once and the cheese and everything else was in a puddle on the top and there were a grouping of the chives and tomatos off to one side covering maybe 2 inches squared instead of covering the whole thing. looked like they took all the ingredients and poured it on at the same time, only they missed.
