Top 3 Favourite Fast Food Places

just curious about what you all indulge in while out and hungry. also, I would like these to be your top 3 that don't give you problems or at least very light problems just to see how each of us are affected.
here are mine.
-
3. Krystal (sack of 6 w/o onion)
2. Papa John's (extra cheese and pineapple)
1. KFC (bucket of 8 piece original, let about 5 get cold, great breakfast the next morning or a nice snack overnight. I pull off the skins, though.)
-
*note that Krystal is equal to White Castle for those of you who don't have Krystal*

Wendy's - Spicy Chicken Sandwich
Arby's - Roast Beef w/ Au jus
Chipotle- don't know if this is fast food, but I love this place. I always get a fajita burrito

Well, occasionally I have to eat out, altho I really try to avoid it, as it's too much of a hassle finding something I can eat (safely). But, given my line of work, there are times when its' just inavoidable. When that occurs, I will go to the following:

1. Subway. I can get a ham or chicken sub, and put only what is safe for me on it

2. Harveys' A chicken pattie grilled on a flame, rather than fried on a griddle. I can also pick/chose the condiments that are relatively safer for me to eat.

3. Dairy Queen. It's risky, but their Brazier Burger is about the best tasting burger you can get. Hold the cheese N bacon, and top it with ketchup/mustard.

Krystal... ok so if it really IS just like a White Castle... how do you (Jvstin) handle THAT? Normal people with normal guts can't eat White Castle without the runs... that's why they call them sliders here...

ok for me:

1. Arby's-- Philly Beef and Swiss sub, Beef n Cheddar... well tons of food there since I worked there for 3 years...

2. Burger King-- tendercrisp sandwich... no tomato

3. Chick-fil-A --- regular chicken sandwich

I eat a diet similar to a vegetarian, but I also eat fish (some would call me pescatarian).

1.) Chipotle - Veggie Burrito
2.) Subway - Tuna Sandwich (toppings depending no how I feel)
3.) Pizza - from pretty much anywhere!

P.S. I can also eat White Castle and not get sick. I don't know why this is. However, I haven't had them in years since moving down to TX. The nearest Krystals is way too far away.

Sliders, skillet scabs, rectum rockets, gut busters... I WISH I could consistently eat WC's. Used to devour 10 of those things and a large onion chip in one sitting. Those were the days.....

Bahahaha... gut busters... yeah. Funny thing though... when I was flaring, I ate White Castles... and it didn't affect me any different than I was already... still had diarrhea and everything, so it was like a normal meal for me Oh... and although I be a girl... I can shove 6 or 7 of those down... Well I am a big eater though! Oh and how far is Sunbury from Indy?

Hi All,

Pizza - from just about anywhere
Mr Greek - Chicken Souvlaki and Gyros
Labelle Province - Steamies (hot dogs cooked in a steamer) with chili and onins

The bottom two are in Canada only, I think and the steamies are only in Montreal.

Bout a 5-6 hour drive. We hit Dog N Suds when we go visit my wife's relatives. They had one here back in the late 70s, but it went the way of the dinosaur. Charbroiled burgers and bout the best rootbeer I've ever had. Alas, it's one of the few "drive in" style places still operating so it's not open in the winter.

I can't really think of a fast food place that doesn't bother me; but I'll list my favourite 3 anyway.

- Wendy's (even though they changed my favourite chicken burger!)
- Mcdonalds
- pretty much any pizza place. A lot of them let me bring my own rice cheese to put on the pizza

I don't eat at fast food places very often though.

Before I was diagnosed, one test they had me do required me to be on a high fat diet for a week. So I went and ate a big mac every night!

Pizza, i can eat some. Papa John's pizza really makes me run to the can quickly. But I do like the Chicago Deep dish pizza. No onions of course

Taco Bueno- Nacho Salad w/o lettuce or tomatoe

Arby's - Grilled Chicken Club

Domino's - Thin Crust pepperoni

Its not really fast food, but if im out and about theres nothing more i like then a Marks&Spencer lunch, (for those of you not from the UK M&S is a kinda posh store on the high street that do the BEST and probably most expensive food! And awsome sandwiches!)

For proper fast food i love Pizza, the Hut's its prob best!

And then id probably say a chicken Korma, from a lovely indian takeaway near me called Mowglis!

For the most part, fast food's pretty gross, but I must admit that I'm a sucker for 1) Taco Bell 2) Subway, and 3) Pronto Pizza......yeah, those are pretty much the worst places EVER to like :/ ...roughage, spices, and glue--yum!

Hey, Jvstin. You're back 'out and about'. Congrats. As for Chinese fast food, I've not gone that route from a take out or Chinese restaurant. closest I've come is to give my home made food a chinese slant (no pun intended) at times. i'll take my chicken, or occasionally pork, add some spice to it with .. ginger, for example, and have it with boiled rice. most chinese style veggies are off my safe diet, so either I pass on that, or try to make the veggies I am allowed at least look/taste like chinese. Unfortunately, that means boiled, not stir fried. I can stir fry things like peeled yellow peppers, with some plain white mushrooms
It's not the same, not even close.. but I delude myself into eating this at times.

actually I can't eat some Chinese food (stuff that isn't cooked as well) as it doesn't agree with me but I like...

1) sonic
2) Chik-Fil-A
3) Wendy's

I can do Chinese, Indian or Japanese no problem. All the other chains with the no wheat and no chicken restriction is just not an option.

Here's a thought (how did that happen?).. But, w/o hijacking this thread, maybe a side topic (or a more beneficial topic) would be a list of fast food or restaurants, etc.., that offer menu choices that are 'safe/wise' for us to eat, yet taste good+. I know that going out N about, eating while on the road, is a constant challenge. I AM not talking about 365 ways to prepare roadkill either, but decent tasting food a person on a restricted diet COULD/SHOULD/WOULD eat. Or am I dreaming? no, can't be. I've found two that accomodate my diet

chik-fil-a doesn't give me problems. I pretty much regret every other fast food place I hit up though. I dunno, had a quarter pounder meal from mcdonald's last night, and that was the shit. And I seemed to handle it well ... so it wasn't LITERALLY 'the shit', just ... you know.

if you're just lookin for a drink though, hit up sonic. They are the ultimate drink stop .. and their chili dogs rule too but .... those tend to destroy my digestion process

I like Subway since I can pick and choose what I want on it. I had to give up the Onions, which was not too much of a sacrifice.

I can eat just about any fast food, but I try noty to eat it very often. There just is not a lot of nutrition in most of it, and MSG is often used.
