Easy - the double hamburger at McDonalds. I've never met another person who eats double hams; everyone just eats McDoubles.

Processed cheese is gross - double hams are bespoke. Respect to McDonalds for having the balls to put the double ham on the menu when there's a ton of pressure in the industry to just have a double cheeseburger offering.

I don't know of another fast food chain that offers double hamburgers. You HAVE to order a double cheeseburger with no cheese, losing out on 25 to 35 cents.

Another McD item I think is underrated is the Egg McMuffin - so good and nutritious.

K-Peezy

I'll counter with the double cheeseburger from BK. Two of those and I'm happy as can be. Or a sourdough Jack.

The double bacon cheeseburger from BK is fire.

Not a big fast food guy but am an expert. For reference, went to 5 chicken places to compare sandwiches in same day. Below are some items I think are slept on as well as items that are so good you can't overrate them.

Cheesy Bean & Rice burrito

From Taco Bell, this value menu item used to be a dollar. Filled with beans, cheese, rice, and creamy jalapeΓ±o sauce, the flavor is delicious. Sometimes they only fill it with the bare minimum leaving you with "well it was only $1.25 what did I expect", but sometimes they'll stuff it like a regular burrito. These days are the days of victory.

Bacon Egg & Cheese McGriddle

What can I say besides this is legendary. Never had one until I had 2 while tailgating a college football game. Gave me the shits but luckily this black dude in an RV gave me wet wipes to use in the Portopotty. That day was wild. These are delicious - I wouldn't say anyone underrates the McGriddle, but it's so good that it's basically underrated.

Publix Sub

Arguably not fast food as there is no drive thru, but you can order ahead, pay online, and walk in and grab it. For under $9, the chicken tender sub is 3k calories of deliciousness. I also recommend the chicken cordon bleu and the Italian.

Dunkin' Donuts Bagel

Plain bagel toasted w cream cheese. If properly prepared, it's a fucking banger. Not the highest quality of either ingredient, but it's filling and a solid jaw workout

Jan 6, 2022 - 8:15pm

Arroz con Pollo

Publix Sub

hard disagree on this, those suck imo. The bread, though fresh, seems just ok at best, and the taste of everything isn't that flavorful. Jersey Mike's or Firehouse Subs is much better, but ultimately subs are one of those things that is by far best not served at a fast food place.

Agree on the McGriddle, that really is legendary.

Chipotle quesadillas before they made them an official menu item. Those were the days. Full tortilla, so much cheese and practically double meat bc they had to cover the whole half. I would do anything to prevent chipotle from making it an official menu item.

Oh, if we're going TB it's gotta be the volcano burrito when it was around. Or the enchilada grilled stuft burrito when it was around.

Hey TB, why you gotta keep killing off your baller menu items for weak sauce items instead like the doritos locos tacos which suck? Take a page out of Whataburger's book and make your interesting takes on things your regular menu so a regular taco is the odd one out.

Jan 6, 2022 - 11:16pm

Keep in mind these are things that I believe are truly underrated. I'm not coming on here to recommend some mainstream shit

1) Chicken strips at chick fil a. Everyone assumes they taste like the nugs / sandwich but they have their own unique breading that's good enough to eat without sauce. My go-to post workout meal is six of these with fries and shake.

2) Publix Hot food section. Im not in the south anymore but I remember them having fire chicken nugs, wings, mac&cheese, etc at a super reasonable price. Walmart hot food section can also be surprisingly good. Both of these depend on the quality of the actual store - I wouldn't eat at a run down Walmart Β 

3) Church's Chicken. They're only in the most ghetto spots possible, so people often skip them. But their sides and most notably their biscuits are better than any fried chicken place. Next time you're caught in a bad part of town check it out

4) Fresh Market Margherita Pizza. I've probably eaten 100 of these in my lifetime. You have to get them special made because not all of the stores have them ready to go. But it's just pizza dough, red sauce, and big slices of fresh mozzarella so they will whip it up for you if you call ahead. It's fresh ingredients instead of a frozen pizza which makes it really good. You can still freeze them and cook it later though.

I'm 6'2 and a 180lbs even with eating all of those calories. Washing a big meal down with a milkshake, smoothie, ensure, etc is the only way I can be full for a normal amount of time. Protein powder / shakes don't really do the trick because it's too low calorie.

That's just what it's like having a naturally fast metabolism while also being active. If I were to have a grilled chicken Kale salad after a workout I'd be a skeleton

The easiest answer of all time - chicken quesadillas from cookout. Those who know what I am talking about, you know. A cookout tray paired with a strawberry cheesecake milkshake is the ultimate drunk college kid food for only $5

I'm going to come out and say it - most vegan burgers. The vast majority of both large chains and small burger joints now offer really good vegan burgers, unlike the early 2010s where they tasted like shoes. They hit the spot pretty much the same but you don't feel sluggish and shit afterwards like you do with a regular one.Β

There used to be this Jurassic Park Burger at MCD which had 3 Patties.

Taco Johns flaming hot Cheeto burrito.

Taco Bell breakfast Crunchwrap. Also the quesarito which was discontinued. It was basically the one menu from TB item I could eat while driving without making a mess.

Used to like McRib, but it doesn't do it anymore.

I got this McDonald's 10:35 burger at one point. It was an sausage egg McMuffin patty and egg on a bun with burger patty and cheese. Pretty gnarly after a hard night of drinking.

I feel like Greek fast food or takeout is underrated and really healthy. I'm surprised a Greek Chipotle hasn't developed a national or regional chain. Lamb gyro is my favorite on a fresh pita with tzatziki, hummus, chickpeas, Greek olives, cucumbers, and banana peppers.

Have you ever had CAVA?

Love that shit. I get it like once a week right now. Greens & grains bowl with chicken & spicy lamb meatballs, pita on the side, pickled onions, cabbage/tomato/cucumber/kalamata olives/spicy hummus/pita crisps. They also offer pita rolls and stuff... pretty much exactly what you just described and a pretty big chain; at least in the DMV.

They also have an insanely good oatmeal dark choc chip cookie with flakey saltΒ

MCD is my safeguard when traveling all over the world. It's the known product quality and menu. I'm no stranger to local food, ate a delicious stew out of a Phuket garage one time, fresh cleaned fish on a Barcelona beach, etc, but I'm just cautious after coming Ill with food poisoning in China. I have no idea what I ate when I was out with the team, but it put most of us out for 3-4 days. Hotel staff called in a doctor for one of the employees.
