They gotta be ridiculous I guess to keep up with Chick Fil A, Raising Canes and Popeyes. Chick Fil A is so good..I would consider a pillow mist of it lol.
Am I the only one on the planet that has never been to a Chick-Fil-A? They weren’t around when I was young, and when I was eating fast food I pretty much wanted a burger.
It very much used to be McDonald’s, KFC and Dairy Queen. Nowadays, so many options of everything.. and at the grocery store, sheesh. If I pick out a toothpaste, I feel like I really achieved something lol. Back in the day, one would just pick up a tube of plain ol, original Crest and move on. Lol.
We had McDonald’s, Ginos (which IIRC had branded Kentucky Fried Chicken), Roy Rogers & some taco place that I can’t remember the name of. It might have been some early version of taco bell. Anyway, fast food was a treat then! I didn’t know anybody who really ate it regularly or considered it a replacement for real meals.
Chick-Fil-A has waffle fries that are extremely tasty. They’re pretty much the only fast food fries I will eat.
