No judgement, just wondering. I mean I just ran by a bojangles down here in the raleigh nc area, there are 22 cars waiting on line at the drive up window with a gasoline station next door . Price for gasoline is 3.77.9 for regular. Now why in the world would these people be wasting gasoline to put a greasy sausage biscuit and a coffee or soda in them at 7am?? While bit(hin about the price of gasoline? Hey I just callem as I see um.

Just because you cant afford to sit in line burning gas to get a tasty greasy sausage biscuit doesnt mean other people cant.

By the way, I understand that Wendy's was just bought out by Arby's. I never understood Arby's "appeal." Their "roast beef" really looks like my middle school cafeteria's mystery meat.

If I was fighting weight gain I wouldn't go there but i'm 6'6" and weigh 155lbs so I don't think I need to worry about gaining too much weight.
You need to fatten up a bit. Add a shake and fries to your whopper. Maybe an apple turnover for desert.

You guys got me hungry. Time for a whopper run. It's ok, I hiked 5 miles yesterday.

Most fast food is fine if you skip the deep fried stuff and leave the mayo or special sauces out of it. And the cheese.

Uh...enjoy your napkin!

Carls Jr. who also operates under the name Hardees in some parts of the world is about the only fast food I'll bother with. Jack-in-the-box got good for a while but then sank into stinkdom. Both burger king and mcdonalds sell lousy food IMO. I havent been to a wendys in years...last time I watched the guy take a precooked burger from a stack on the counter and flip it a few times on the grill and then stick it on a bun, still cold in the middle. EWW!

Six Dollar Burger! (Which actually sells for about $3.75 and needs to have its name changed to "Eight dollar burger")

Accept No Substitutes!

Carl's Jr.

I like Arby's too. Around here you can get 5 for $5.95. I get 4 arby's melts(there roast beef sandwich with melted cheese on top) and a choclate shake for 6 bucks. That offer prbably doesn't apply to most areas though.

I was gonna say Arby's is king for cheap folks. Used to be 5 for $5 and one of the guys that used to work for me got that on a regular basis. I see inflation has had its way with the price.

They used to make a french fry that was extruded from a machine, sort of like thick mashed potatoes, right into the hot grease. I remember liking those as a little kid. Probably gross me out now, if they even still make them.

Yep, the hardee monster burger == carls jr's double six dollar burger.

I'm also fond of their Six Dollar Western Bacon Cheeseburger. Onion rings, cheese, bacon and a big slab of beef. Niiice...

By the way if anyone is a Carls fan, I have an image capture of a buy one get one free for the six dollar burger. Seems they released it on that there internet thing and somehow everyone got a copy and started using it, and thats not what they wanted. Funny how that worked.

Its good until 12/31/08, and seems most Carls Jr's will accept it. Its on my other puter but I'll post it if anyone wants it.

Two giant burgers for under $4 is a pretty good deal.

Heres an online version of the Hardees thickburger coupon...
