In preparation for Obama's presidency I have started to test out the dollar menus at local fast food restaurants. In all honesty, there are several items I have found to be quite tasty but my favorite so far is the "Wendy's Double Stack" hamburger. So I am going to cast my vote for that, but I wanted to see if there is anything else that I may have missed that is popular. So feel free to add your favorite to the list and vote for it.

Wendy's Double Stack 1

The only "fast food" I really enjoy is Subway.

$5 footlong,

Parmesan Oregano Bread, Spicy Italian, Pepper Jack Cheese, Lettuce, Onions, all 3 peppers, Vinegar and Southwest Sauce (that combination is great for "kissable breath"!!!)

You're definitely on thr right track with Wendy's. The side salads are great too (portion vs. cost).

I've never eaten at Wendy's :redface:

Been eating double quarter pounders with cheese, mayo, and bacon without the bun lately. Love the anabolic diet!

Old standby is always a whole pizza washed down with white russians!

I like Wendy's, but I got the Hershey's the last time I ate there (damn spicy chicken sandwich). :poop:

I'm still gonna go with one of my all time favorites, the Wendy's Jr. bacon cheeseburger.

Oh, sorry....former fat kid here...

Um, honestly nothing off the dollar menu fills me up, so I don't usually buy off of it.

Does 5 Arby Melts for 5 dollars count? If so I finished off a whole bag of them on the way home from work the other night... a 20 minute drive:noidea:

:mad: We don't have any Sonics around here. Tell me, have you ever put a little rum in one of them Ocean Waters? Always seemed intriguing to me (like the hurricane drinks in New Orleans.....keep your jokes to yourself).

Those Ocean Waters are screaming for a little added booze. I may try the tea/lime/vodka thing. Thanks.

Very true, I hazard to call it a "diet" anyway. I eat (literally), sleep, and breath fitness and nutrition now. I don't know what "diet" you are on right now, but for teaching you how to build healthy meals and control your portions I can't recommend the Zone Diet enough. If you are interested let me know, and I can point you toward a PDF to get you started in the right direction.

I lost about 25 lbs on the Zone "method of eating" to the Anabolic "method of eating" recently and lost another 5 lbs. I have just been overdoing it on the weekend carb ups, I need to keep that in control.

Oh, and TheWarDen86, that drink is called an "icepick". I made it on accident when I ran out of Kahlua and couldn't make my white russians, twas a sad sad day :alcohol:

What if Obama puts a 300% tax on the dollar menu too? :chuckle:

I tend to eat a lot of McDonalds spicy McChickens off the dollar menu, but any taco from any taco place is my way to roll.

Down in south Texas, I'd pick up two REAL tacos for .99 cents each. They fill ya right up. (sorry Campbells...)

Me too. I have lost about 25 lbs primarily following the zone diet and put on about 10 - 15 pounds of muscle in 2008. I also follow "Eating right 4 your (blood) type". I have a couple of .pdf files available for that book.
