I could have forgiven you for one ridiculous statement but you struck out.

1. Cold cuts are in my top 3 of Subway choices. They just go good with the bread.
2. Jimmy Johns is about the same price as Subway. Plus, you don't get employees counting out 6 slices of ham to put on your sandwich.
3. The hot sandwiches at Subway are the worst except for the roasted chicken breast. This is why places like Quizno's exist- Subway can't do a hot sandwich right. I've never had a toasted sub there that wasn't burnt.

pretty much the truth
also i can make the same sammich at home, but i usually dont have salami and peperoni on hand for myself, turkey and bacon for the wife, plus lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, peppers, etc...i'd rather just run to Subway than go to the grocery store to buy all that stuff

The hot sandwiches have just as much sodium as the cold cut combo. Plus the stuff they put in the hot sandwich doesn't look like real meat/chicken/whatever. I don't trust any of the hot sandwiches and they usually put so much sauce on it that it spills all over the place. :-P

Yeah, one time I was in a hurry to get a project done and needed a quick bite. Prior to that, I hadn't eaten McDonald's in 4-5 years. I would never eat there if I had a choice, but I'm sure if I have kids, I'd have to take them there. :-b


you will but you don't have to eat it yourself. %-6 You won't feel good about yourself as you help them finish the fries in their happy meal. :*)

I refuse to give high marks to an establishment that doesn't slice their own meat and cheese for their sandwiches. I don't care how good the bread is.

Your kids need help finishing their fries? I risk bodily injury if I venture near their fries.

i think KFC sucks. Popeye's destroys.

also, I don't think I can stand for this McDonald's hatred any more. I understand that it's not the best, but it is OK.

the BigMac is a decent sandwhich, double cheeseburger plain is solid and their breakfast burrito may be one of the best items in all of fast food. Their fries are about as good as fries get. on a side note: I am consistantly impressed with the efficiency at which those places operate.

sonic

we just got sonic here last year, and i ate there once and wasn't a fan.

yeah, sonic's nothing special
overpriced, unless you have a buy one, get one
the totes are actually too salty, which is something I didn't think was possible
and the rest of their menu is meh except for the limeaides... which still aren't that great
