Arby's roast beef with their "Arby's" sauce. A big one.
Lots of sauce. Enough so that it runs down your chin; 3 or 4 napkins worth.

Wow, now you have me thinking on some Arby's, but I'm more of a horsey sauce kind of gal.
I like spicy women. :!!)

My wife and I don't do "chain" food. Our occasional fast food is one of Tracey's vegetable subs. I usually have some left over for lunch the next day because my wife and I can't eat it all between us.

Nice tasty photo. Maybe a good topic for a photo contest; "Food Appreciation".

Three meals for $6 is a pretty good deal. The image is a bit deceptive, shot from above. Under that top deck of lettuce and jumbo tomato slices are onion, pickles, marinaded mushrooms, ripe olives, crispy jalapeno rings, dill pickle slices, Cooper Sharp cheese, etc. Olive oil and coarse-ground black pepper top it off.

One time, my wife ordered one with deli-sliced roast beef added. Mmmm. I don't know what extra price she had to pay for that, because she traded my home-grown garlic for all her purchases at the shop and got money to boot. Great sandwich, though.

OMG, I just had a fried seafood dinner from Long John Silver's and I think I'm going to die. It was SO GOOD!!!! I couldn't finish it. Only complaint, a bit too salty.

That looks good and healthy!.

Here are two of my favorites.

Hardees Frisco burger and Jimmy Johns Italian Nightclub
I'll have to try the Frisco burger, but it'll have to be at a Carl's Junior. The closest Jimmy John's is about 200 miles away.

You'll love it, actually any of their burgers are awesome, if you like traditional burgers, I recommend the $6 burger.

I usually get a $6 burger when I'm in SD - either the guacamole burger or the jalapeño burger. Carl's Jr and Hardees are the same company.

My "traditional" fast food fixes:

Arby's Beef 'n' Cheddar with curly fries.

Captain D's Fish & Fries combo.

And occasionally at a local institution in a nearby town, the http://www.beacondrivein.com/" [Broken], a double cheeseburger with bacon, and iced tea (the only place I ever get iced tea; I'm not an iced tea guy in general, but there it "feels right."). I never get fries or onion rings with it, because the burger itself is so big it serves for both lunch and supper.

A coworker sent this link to me the other day. It's amazing what you can do with a happy meal and some imagination.

These photographs show extreme makeovers of actual fast food items purchased at popular fast food restaurants. No additional ingredients have been added except for an occasional simple garnish.

I usually go to Del Taco. It always strikes me as odd that there are people who actually prefer Taco Bell.
I will agree with you here. I love Del Taco. Taco Bell, not so much. However, Taco Bell's fire sauce is much better that what Del Taco has.

A funny thing about Del Taco. I get my tacos (they are 0.49 ea.) with rice instead of meat. Some cashiers will charge me 0.35 each taco to do that. I am feeling cheap I'll just order the tacos with no meat and a side of rice. That way the 0.35 is only charged once. That one side of rice will cover 5 tacos. :rolleyes:
