I do enjoy my Fast Food. The last few Wednesdays or so, Mrs Duck has been going out to spend time with friends, leaving me on my own for dinner. I have been using that opportunity to get my Fast Food fix. But, the choices around here kinda suck. Here's 13 Fast Food joints I wish were in my area.
1.Whataburger-I had these on my first trip to Arizona, and there was just something different about them. Maybe bigger, or a different make up, but they were tasty, though not as tasty as...
2.In N Out-The Best damn burgers, hands down end of discussion. A West Coast institution. If they ever moved this way, we would both probably be there every week.
3.Sonic-No Sonic here either, I think the closest is out by Penn State. There food does not look overally appetizing on the commercials, but there drinks and shakes just make the mouth sort of water.
4.Hardees/Carl Jrs-Any place with this kind of commercial will get my business at least once! And Hardees always had some excellent biscuits.
5.Geno's-One of my first memories is stopping on the way to the house that I would grow up in and getting a bucket of Geno's chicken the night we moved in. It was the first meal in the new house at it was at like 10:30 at night, a treat for an 8 year old.
6.Jake's Burgers-A University of Delaware institution. Not exactly a fast food because the burgers would need to be called in for ahead of time to be fast, but what great burgers, especially for a college student budget.
7.White Castle-Mmmm sliders. So good, so cheap, so filling. So quick to get through the digestive system.
8.Chipolte-Another discovery when the folks lived in Arizona. A giant dinner for under $5. I mean huge burritos! I would have trouble finishing one, and that says a lot for a healthy eater like myself.
9.Jack in the Box-We used to have them out here on the East Coast, until they had that whole E Coli scare that nearly put em out of business. But, now we don't get to eat Clown Burgers, nor see the funny commercials.
10.Roy Rogers-We used to have one of the last Roy Rogers in existence at my local New Jersey mall. It survived because the mall did not have a food court and needed to have a burger place for its patrons. Who didn't love the fixings bar, BBQ on there fries and some fine fried chicken. Well, i do know the Senior Citizens did since they always seemed to fill the place.
11.Baja Fresh-sometimes you are in the mood for some Mexican, but without all the fat fried taste of Taco Bell. Ok, that does not happen for me much, since I love Taco Bell, but sometimes you wanna think you were eating healthy. For that, Baja Fresh was one of the best options.
12.Pei Wei-Fast Food of the asian variety that did not taste like fast food at all. Another favorite stop of Tex's when they lived in Arizona, because he could feed 4 and not break the bank. Love there noodles.
13.Coffee People-An old Oregon hippy institution, that served some of the best coffee. And it was one of the first coffee drive ups that I could recall being around, at least before Dunkin Donuts had a drive up. Its since been bought out by Starbucks and I think most of the Portland chains are gone. I am glad I missed the demise, because they had some fine coffee.
