I think I could live off of CFA. They have good salads, good fruit, and lots of tasty sauces.

What're your favorite condiments? I like Polynesian with breakfast and chicken sammies. Chick-fil-A sauce with fries, but I'm not a big fry guy. If you haven't had their honey roasted bbq sauce, you should definitely try it. It comes in squeezable packs.

I rarely get breakfast but have branched out when ordering it. The breakfast burrito is great, but it's pretty bland. Taco Bell mild sauce goes great with it. Chicken biscuit is a classic, and now I'll add egg and cheese. Sometimes a buttered biscuit with egg and cheese. Plain buttered biscuit great too. Can add grape jelly to any of these to mix it up.

Chicken Mini's are hit or miss depending on the freshness of the rolls. Also, they don't put honey butter most of the time anymore which is disappointing.

I used to get 2 grilled sandwiches and cover them in Texas Pete in college. Not the best, but much healthier than regular. Big fan of their regular nuggets and sandwiches. Spicy sandwich is nice to mix it up, and I always go Polynesian sauce with spicy.

The brownies aren't my favorite. Cookies are amazing when fresh. Milkshakes slap.

Best part of Chick-fil-A is the service.

Cheesy Gortida Crunch, no lettuce

Beefy 5 Layer Burrito, add spicy ranch and creamy jalapeΓ±o sauce

Crunchwrap, no lettuce, no tomato

Quesarito, add spicy ranch and creamy jalapeΓ±o sauce

My problem with Taco Bell is the quality control is piss poor. A Gordita Crunch is near $5, and sometimes I don't even get enough beef for one bite. I used to have a friend at Taco Bell who would make me the Cheesy Bean and Rice burrito (dollar menu item) and stuff it to the brim. Best value you will ever find at a fast food restaurant.

I'm not a cilantro fan so don't like the rice and that ruins chipotle for me. I do think it's a great value tho.

Wendy's has fucked up the last 2 times I've gotten it. Arby's isn't bad. Burger King is trash. McDonald's isn't bad but the menu is pretty bland.

I can't think of any fast food available almost everywhere that can compete with Taco Bell and Chick-fil-A, especially considering value.

By CFA I'm assuming you meanΒ Chick-fil-A which would be my choice as well. Their waffle fries are awesome, I've always appreciated their sauces, and as a bonus they align with me politically.

For regional establishments, I would rate Cane's extremely high. Limited menu, but arguably the best chicken strips/tenders in the game. They have the best toast, and their sweet tea is always on point. Cane's sauce is delicious, but they usually make you pay for extra.

Zaxby's isn't that good imo. In-N-Out was not worth the hype when I tried it. Don't think I've ever had Whataburger

Β Don't think I've ever had Whataburger

Aren't you supposed to be a southern boy? What the hell man?Β WhenΒ you finally decide to own up and go, definitely get one of their specialty menu choices like a honey bbq chicken strip sandwich or an A1 thick and hearty. You've already made up your mind on Cane's strips, and while I can't disagree about the choice, Whataburger's chicken strips are the OG. Especially with gravy or spicy ketchup.

I've looked at their honey butter biscuit way too many times on the website lol. Closest one to me is at Auburn which is around 2.5 hours away (I'm in ATL). I might try and hit up auburn for a game this fall (honestly not a fan of going to games in person. I'd love to just travel the south for a fall and go to the bars each Saturday).

Had Cane's for the first time recently when I was passing through Mississippi. Felt cleaner than Zaxby's (which I've eaten quite often) and loved their Cane's sauce. CFA is still king down South though no question.

Yeah but for the rest of your life??? Cane's menu has like 3 items on it and they're all just variations on chicken strips. You'd be dunzo after a week!

Agreed. Was just saying in general how it's good food. If only 1 for rest of life, I go Chick-fil-A if I'm allowed to have a blender as they have fruit abs milk so I can make smoothies. If I can't use menu ingredients to make what I want, I'm going Taco Bell

I've been to WingStop twice. Wings were ok at best, and both times took over 30 minutes to pick up AFTER the expected pick up time.

Hooters has much better wings - order to go and they're always ready on time

Dunkin Donuts. I could have those bacon egg and cheese wake-up-wraps every day. Also they constantly are adding new items (avacado toast, pesto grilled cheese right now for example), so there will be some variety as time goes on.

They are also so common in the northeast, I will never be too far away if I am craving fast food (unlike CFA or In N Out).

How was no one said Culver's? That would be my choice.

I've heard good things, but haven't ever been to one.

Highly recommend trying it. Burgers are made fresh. Seared to perfection.

Sides are great- onion rings, cheese curds, solid fries.

The custard is good as well.

It all feels higher quality than typical fast food imo.

Boston Market.

Not that it is my favorite, but they have a lot of options from chicken to meatloaf, prime rib, bbq ribs. and all those sides.Β Β 

IF the question is what fast food would I only eat at for life. Then the answer is Burger King. Burgers are on points, fries are good, want onion rings (yeah they got those too), shakes, ice cream, desert, fish sandich(yup), chicken sandwich and nuggets. YOU BET.

Honestly the best thing they have would be the Whopper which kills all fast food burgers except Shake Shack.

Boston Market.

Can't find the video, but this reminds me of Workaholics when Adam says he'd be a smart zombie and wouldn't eat people but would eat Boston Market instead.

Dave's Hot Chicken, Chipotle, Panda Express*, MAYBE Culvers.

Had Dave's for the first time recently, and couldn't stop going back. Legitimately the best Chicken I've ever had. The only thing I'd be worried about is eating essentially the same meal (Chicken + Sandwich Vegetables+ Fries/ Bread + occasional shake) and getting tired of it/ not having enough greens.

Chipotle/ Panda would definitely depend on the restaurant. I've been to several locations that were just shitty. For Panda, I worked at one in Highschool, and that kitchen should've been closed down. Disgustingly dirty, mid food.

Culver's I'd worry I'd become obese. My first job was at Culver's and I gained like 25 pounds off of the free food. It's delicious, but terrible for you.
