Pretty much all of them. In-n-Out burger is the only "fast food" I really eat. However I detest low end chain resturants such as Olive Garden and Chilis even more. I would take McDs over any of these any day.

I'm not a fan of Del Taco, even though it seems everyone else is.

Hardees and Jack in the Box. Haven't been to either in 15+ years, I am glad to say.

Surprised no one's said McDonald's. After watching "SuperSize Me," I don't think I'll be eating at a McD's anytime soon.

I love In N' Out but the 104 x 104 grossed me out

The five I hate:
Burger King
Long John Silver
Church's Fried Chicken
Sbarro
Jack in the Garbage Can

McDonald's used to be redeemed because of their hash browns at breakfast. Now they changed the coating, and it's like sandpaper. Now I'm down to the occasional steak bagel (extra onions and extra pepper), the very occasional Filet-o-Fish, and a weekly pair of 99c Double Cheeseburgers (no mustard). I cant eat their larger burgers, their chicken, or their salads.

It has to be McDonalds. I don't see why anyone eats there.

TGIF - Both times I've tried them the experience was abysmal Ouch...

Pizza Hut - Fat, grease and a few industrial ingredients too

Yoshinoya - Proof that bad fast food doesn't have to be of American origin

Dunkin' donuts - This goes for other donut terrorists as well. Perfectly sane people get addicted to sugar coated rings of fat...

White Castle & Hardees for me. I absolutely love KFC, BK, MD, Popeye's. I'm just a fast food junkie, I guess.

I can't think of any that I really detest. This could be a problem.
