    I'm in Canada and mine are:

    KFC
    Popeyes
    McDonald's
    Burger King
    Harvey's
    Wendy's
    Taco Bell
    Subway
    Pizza Pizza
    Pizza Hut
    Swiss Chalet (not exactly fast food but not that healthy either)
    and pretty much every Chinese fast food restaurant ...

    If I don't have at fast food at least once every 2-3 weeks or so, I get a craving and normal food will start to get bland.

    QUIT that shit years ago cause it's addicting as crack cocaine. Carls Jr (hardees) was pretty damn on point, Jack In The Box had a good variety when doubles and mcchickens get old. I used to constantly go to fast food and I literally got my order fucked up about 45% of the time, I obviously blame this "free market" system that is turning Americans into the 21st century Chinese slaves

    I mainly go to Subway & Panda Express(Chinese). I hypnotizing myself that these two are better than the rest of fast food restaurants.
    I go to McDonalds only for breakfast if I have a chance. Sometimes, Chipotle or Rubio's for Mexican food is not bad choice either.

    Subway is good but I can make a sandwich almost as good as Subway at home, it's there when I want a lighter choice on the road.

    I love fried chicken and I cannot replicate KFC's recipe no matter so I always feel like getting fried chicken from either KFC or Popeyes every couple weeks or so.

    When it comes to burgers I prefer Harvey's (Canadian) and Wendy's but their locations are sparse which makes me go to Burger King more often.

    For Pizza I prefer Pizza Pizza (Canadian) or Pizza Nova (Canadian) but I'll also settle for Pizza Hut or Pizzaville (Canadian) sometimes.

    I don't know why but Canadian fast food chains just taste more like food (less fast fast artificial taste) and feel lighter (less fat) to me with the exception of Subway and Mr. Sub (Canadian) which are identical to me minus the price and locations.

    Subway and Carl's Jr are my favorite. Taco Del Mar has some pretty great stuff too. Burger King isn't bad but their prices are retarded when I can just go to Carl's Jr and get twice the burger for the same price.
    McDicks is complete garbage. I can't believe the prices are so high and you get basically nothing.
    Domino's is good when they do those 50% off anything sales. Especially since the website is so broken and you can get pizzas for way cheaper than you normally would.
    New York Fries is probably my top choice but I live no where near any NYF storefronts. I lived off those bundles of heaven for like 3 days during a band trip in grade 11.

    Random note but I also miss pretty much any fastfood place I went to in Finland. God damn I dunno what they do to their fries but they're all amazing.

    Found the Californian (though I guess you could be Texan or even from Arizona or New Mexico at this point). lol At least they should be bringing In N Out north one state, so I'll be able to get my hands on it eventually.

    Lemme see:
    I get McDonalds often because it's the closest and I like their nuggets and fries.
    I really like the foot long cony from Sonic, and their shakes are pretty good too.
    I like the curly fries at Jack in the Box.
    I like quesadillas from Taco Bell.
    I like lots of stuff from Carls Jr, but fuck their prices. It's cheaper for me to eat elsewhere, and elsewhere is all closer to me, so I usually pick any of the above places.

    I used to like Subway, but I can't be assed to go to either of the locations near me, so I haven't gotten it since I lived in my old town.

    I can't believe I left out Taco Bell, it's a must for me every time I get KFC since they are both under the same restaurant where I live.

    Yeah something about fast food if you grew up in North America and don't eat for a long time, you miss it a lot (cravings in other words).

    Oh my gosh, In N Out is the greatest. I go every time I'm there in CA. Whataburger is pretty okay-ish, too.

    I dunno if this technically counts as fast food, but since Subway is thrown in the mix I guess it would.

    Jimmy John's is my absolute favorite, and pretty much the only "fast food" place I'll eat at nowadays. They have a place that's ~5 minutes from the office I work in, so every now and again if my boss doesn't buy us all lunch I'll order a sandwich from them.

    I think the only other fast food restaurant I eat at after Jimmy John's would be Panda Express, they make some pretty nice Chinese food that I'll grab every now and again.

    I just go to restaurants now. They're cheaper than fast food joints nowadays.

    I rarely ever go now but if there's one then it's Subway. Although, I used to go to Burger King a lot but the burgers weren't really hot at all and I'd rather eat elsewhere.

    KFC seems to have pretty good reputation but I've not been there in years.

    The closest I go to fast food is non chain pizza joints. Fast food is gross, the food quality is poor, the sanitary conditions in those places are poor, the taste is poor, and to top it off you feel like crap after eating it. People who gorge of fast food are also gross to look for the most part.
    My choice for fast takeout is a small family run Lebanese restaurant that that makes the best wraps I've ever tasted.

    In-N-Out Burger, best fast food joint hands down. I know a lot of you have yet to have the pleasure. Taco Bell is my guilty pleasure food.
