McDonalds or Wendy's or Burger King??

I am curious who everyone prefers of the big three and why?

  1. none of them - steak and shake rules!

    1. I don't like Burger King at all. If it's breakfast....McD's. Either a breakfast burrito or sausage biscuit with grape jelly. For lunch, it depends on what I'm in a mood for. Childhood comfort after a bad day....McD's All-American meal. Starving or hungover...Wendy's single, fries and a Frosty. Snack attack....McD's french fries or Wendy's fries and a Frosty to dip them in. In a mood for salad...whichever place is more convenient.

        I thought my mom was the only person who ate her sausage biscuit with grape jelly!

          sweet, salty, dough-y goodness (!)

      2. McD's for the fries.
        Wendy's for the grilled chicken sandwich and a frosty.
        Burger King for the drive-by shooting (in my town). :-)

        It really depends on the mood. Most of the time, I'd rather go to a locally run sandwich shop, but they're hard to find here.

          The local sandwich shop is hard to find here also (especially near my husband works near several nice, independent lunch places and few chains). We have one local place that I used to frequent but they really did have lousy sandwiches which run about $7/each.

        2. McDonalds for breakast and fries, occassional Filet O Fish.
          Wendy's for chicken, spicy sandwich or nuggets and a frosty.

          1. I hate most fast food, however, in life, when I have no choice, Wendy's gets my vote. I can't stand burger king, gives me tremendous heart burn. On a rare occasion I will eat at McDonald's and doctor up the Big Mac. (special order no lettuce) When I get it home, I add mayo and pepper. I will say the fries at McDonald's are the best. Maybe someone should start a new post as to who has the best fries.
