MGoFastFood Vote

Submitted by Smoothitron on October 31st, 2017 at 12:00 AM

Year 1 - MGoCereal: Results

Summary: Cinnamon Toast Crunch is king, Brian Cook as a cereal mascot, and a vicious debate in the comments about whether you pour the milk or cereal first.

Year 2 - MGoHalloweenCandy: Results

Summary: People like Reese's, candy corn sucks, and something about candied genitalia.

Year 3 - MGoFastFood


It's time for the 3rd installment of my divisive, food-based poll series. This time the focus is on fast food joints.
 

Rules:

1. Click the link and type in your answers to the following questions:

What is the best fast food chain?

What is the worst fast food chain?

What is the most overrated fast food chain?

What is your favorite fast food menu item?

I'll count up all the horrible misspelled results and post them here on Saturday before Minnesota(actually Monday it turns out) along with some notable responses. Poll ends sometime Friday evening.

2. No rules. If you want to rally the Ronald McDonald/Colonel Sanders slashfiction subreddit for votes, that's fine. The poll is set up to only accept one survey per device. if you break that to rig a dumb poll like this, it says a lot about you.

3. I don't care how you or anyone else defines a fast food restaurant. If it's a fast food restaurant to you, go ahead and put it in the poll.

 

The poll is here. Go crazy.

Poll is closed, don't click there.

My mom always poured the milk first and put it away before I even came out for breakfast.  I hated it, because the cereal would float on top rather than absorb the milk, which made some of the rougher cereal (Apple Jacks, Cheerios) impossible to eat without scraping off the roof of my mouth. But she's an immigrant, so she didn't know any better.

is the most healthy thing you can purchase at a fast food venue. So it must be right. Anyway, I have twice kept my 13-year-old from eating worse garbage by telling her it was that or nothing. Which don't point up the contradiction in that like she did.

As a former Chick-Fil-A employee, it is one of the best, if not the best. Coming from someone who ate it 6 days a week for a year and still loves it. I still like Taco Bell more because I hate myself, but it's right up there. Can't beat the service or quality.

In-N-Out has Whataburger beat in cost and milkshakes (hell yeah, Neapolitan!).

Whataburger's burgers are far better. Plus, it has breakfast. I think the fries between the two are a push.

The longer I've been in Texas, the more I find In-N-Out to be overrated, and Whataburger to be climbing in my estimation.

I was horribly unimpressed with Whattaburger.  Tasted no better than like, Carl's Jr.  Fries were bland.   

 

In n Out, I like, but it is pretty overrated.  Still would rather go there than most fast food places, but it's not the holy bastion of food a lot of Californians make it out to be.

There's nothing wrong with the food there, it's all fine. It's overrated because Californians are so goddamn convinced that it's better than other major chains. I'll grant that it's better than McDonald's and Burger King, but not by that much. Five Guys has better burgers and fries with none of the cult worship. Potbelly has vastly superior milkshakes.

People still go there, so to me, that means they are over-rating it by rating it as edible. The Burger King near my house never has anyone in it. I'll drive by and see it completely empty with no one in the drive through lane. But somehow it stays open. I think it must be a front for a drug-dealer. Think Breaking Bad's car wash. There's another shop on the same street for a psychic/fortune teller. How is that a real business? Who goes to those places outside of carnivals? It's gotta be a drug front. (I've probably watched too many episodes of Breaking Bad and The Wire recently.)
