I have been clamoring to get an In and Out Burger, although there plans do not seem to include westward expansion.  I should be thankful that Sonic has finally arrived to my area and a Five Guys has gone close and I have realized its goodness.

Are there any fast food chains that you really want to come to your area?

Jack in the Box and Whataburger. My life would be complete if they opened those here. Maybe Taco Bueno...but I have to be in the right mood to have that.

You are in luck (if you in Virginia which I believe you are), I have seen Jack in the Box commercials and learned they are moving toward your area and mine

We only have KFC, as in most other medium sized Thai towns.  Two in fact.  The nearest McDonalds is an hour away.  I wouldn't mind a Burger King..

Really?

Your nearest Sonic is about 30 miles away from SF
The best Mexican restaurant, Qdoba, seems similar
You definitley lack a Pollo Tropical.  I think its more of a lack of knowledge of some because

And no Five Guys within 100 miles!!!

frankly I felt much better not knowing about In and Out Burger

Qdoba just opened up with a new Burger King here.. and while it is okay, it certainly is not the best Mexican food.  Maybe for fast food... but it is by no means authentic.  It's Burger King's response to Chipotle.

Also, In and Out is good, but I prefer Culvers.  Their burgers are just as good and they have custard, among many other things.

Yea, I meant fast Mexican food with Qdobs.

Anyway, since you mentioned custard, PiT also has no Ritas anywhere near him for thousands of miles

In-N-Out is logistically impossible in New Jersey, because of the freshness requirements. Have you ever eaten at one?

I've heard Chick-fil-A is very religious.  I had never heard of them until my step dad mentioned them being all over in the south.

We also don't have Jack in the Box... although we have Hardees, which is essentially the same thing as Carls Jr.

I don't really care what it is the ownership believes. In my pre-vegetarian days, I loved Chick-fil-a, because it was good.

Well, MORE Arby's.  I can't believe how few there are in Pittsburgh and surrounding suburbs (sorry BRTD).

We have a couple Chick-fil-A's around but only a couple, I'd like more.

I'm not a fast food junkie but Arby's is the best, followed by McD's.

I prefer ethnic - Vietnamese, Indian, Thai.

Five Guys would be cool, but really Starkville is pretty stacked on fast food.

Jack in the Box and Krystal are both just close enough to torment me with commercials (from the upstate and Augusta TV markets respectively) while not close enough to eat at.

I've heard Chick-fil-A is very religious.  I had never heard of them until my step dad mentioned them being all over in the south.

Very religious is an understatement.  By company policy, all Chick-fil-A's are closed on Sunday.

We also don't have Jack in the Box... although we have Hardees, which is essentially the same thing as Carls Jr.

Hardly surprising since the same company owns both Carl's Jr. and Hardee's.

Not only is the no-Sunday thing really dumb anyway, it's also really annoying because I don't really crave Chick-Fil-A all that often, and invariably it's a Sunday when I finally do.

This and I'd like a White Castle near by as well.  A few more Hardees/Carl's Jr would be sweet.  Plenty of BKs and Arbys though.
