I do not eat a lot of fast food. I thought for this weeks Food Journey, I would share my favorite fast food restaurants.
What can I say? I love to have a whopper once in a while. I used to worked at a local Burger King several years ago. While working there I did not lose my taste for the charbroiled taste of Burger King's hamburgers. I did manage to lose almost 100 pounds while working at Burger King. I did eat the food just watched how much I eat. I have always liked Burger King's fries over the other fast food restaurant that you do not see on my list today that I lot of people claim have better fries. I disagree with that. I just wish Burger King would settle on want fries they service. I like trying the different versions of the Whooper when they do different promotions.
When I was young the only Chick-fil-a in the area was at the mall in Asheville, North Carolina. It was a treat to get some waffle fries when we went to the mall. Now there is a Chick-fil-a in town. I like to stop in once in a while for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Out of all the fast food restaurants, Chick-fil-a has the cleanest restaurants and the most professional employees. My favorite meal to order is the Spicy Chicken Sandwich meal.
When I am in the mood for roast beef, Arby's is the place I go. The beef and cheddar or the roast beef classic are a good standard but they have some specialty sandwich that are really good too. I do not care much for the curly fries. A lot of times I will just get a sandwich and a drink when I go there.
My first food in the Philippines was a hamburger and fries from Jollibee. Nothing like good memories to make a place special for you. That is not the only reason I like Jollibee. Jo Anne and I eat at Jolibees a couple times while I was in the Philippines and I enjoyed all the food I tried.
Ah, Americanized Mexican food of Taco Bell. My best memories of Taco Bell is stopping there for dinner before church on Sunday night in high school with my friend Kevin and I treated Jo Anne to Taco Bell when I visited her in the Philippines. I do eat different things on the menu but the main thing I get is the Grilled Stuff Burrito.
Hardees is my official fast food breakfast restaurant. Out if all the fast food restaurants, I have eating breakfast at Hardee's has the best. I am glad to see their lunch menu getting better too. They have some great hamburgers now but it is their breakfast I enjoy the most here.
Jack in the Box
Jack in the Box is one of the few restaurants or stores that Hendersonville got before Asheville. If I remember correctly, Jack in the Box had some bad press right before their store opened in Hendersonville. I think they recovered very well from the bad press.
I really like their Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger. Nothing like just meat and cheese, and more meat and cheese. I would get fat and sick if I eat their too much. I cannot imagine to fat and calories their meals have but they taste good.
