    I had gone almost a year without eating at McDonalds until this particular trip to DC I am on (which ends today !!), the only place near our hotel to eat when we got off work late last night was McDonalds ......... :barf:
    had I not been starving, I would have forgone the meal

    All I have to say is a single w/ cheese from Wendy's is good. Zaxby's chicken strips with zax sauce- the bomb. And sometimes I just need a good Beef n Cheddar from Arby's.

    It may not be good for me, but it's gooood!

    Europe's got tons of McDonalds too. In London, I was out on a Friday night, there was a security guard outside, and the McDs was packed to the brim with people. It's ridiculous... so they can pay about 4 dollars for a regular cheeseburger. Also, people were sitting inside a Pizza Hut, dressed in formal wear, drinking wine like it is some form of American finery.

    I'll have a #4 extra value meal, Royale with cheese, chips, and a large Riunite Rosato.

    We have been down this road before and all decent sized restaurants get their meat in bulk from a food purveyor like sysco. PFG is big in middle tennessee. You can buy 10 lbs of frozen preformed patties or 150 lbs. To suggest that mcdonalds alone is secretly sneaking in some nefarious additives is silly.

    As far as going to one of these restaurants for an actual meal i have no problem with it but the problem with our food culture is that we visit these places in between meals.

    I wish every outlet offered a choice of sides like wendys does. I love being able to have chili instead of greasy fries. As far as i know only burger king offers a Boca veggie burger. That would be my main complaint.

    Go to calorie king.com and see for yourself what food value things have. A quarter lb of ground beef cooked will give you about 20 grams of fat and 300 calories no matter where you buy it.

    The real bad places to eat in my opinion are the casual dining restaurant burgers which often have a lot of fatty toppings on them.

    FYI cracker barrell does not provide nutritional information on their food.
