Fast Food Chains in CT- What's best?
- stuck in Hartford County Oct 19, 2009 09:46 AM
We have been spending WAY too much time in CT McDonaldsland with the recent uptick in travel soccer driving. Please help us with some cheap, fast and good fast food options in Central and Northern CT towns. Those Sonic ads look good, but I've never seen one. Most games are in towns off I 91 or I 84. Help us, please, I can't face another yogurt, walnut and fruit salad or chicken strips (although I think these menu items are pretty tasty...)!
What do CH's think is the best fast food chain in CT? What do you order? Any guilty fast food pleasures you keep from your SO's? Can any fast food items be Chowworthy? Are any leaning towards "Deliciousness"? CT, come clean with your fast food choices!
If you find yourself farther south in CT, Duchess is a good bet. Your basic burgers, dogs, fries, onion rings, and sandwiches (and more), but it really is fresher and less production-liney than the big chains. Great breakfasts too.
Right now, they're running a 2/$3 on bacon, egg and cheese on a hard roll -- at least they are in Ansonia, where I think they're at war with the McD's around the corner. For lunch, I like a good 'n greasy chili cheeseburger -- small and messy but it hits the spot. The onion rings are excellent.
Unfortunately northern CT lacks originality with fast food chains....try Popeye's for something different, and little more tasty than the burger joints. You'd be better off looking at diners right off the highway - in most cases they will offer quick service, and certainly better choices than something with a drive thru. Vernon Diner, Olympic come to mind quickly -
