I prefer ethnic - Vietnamese, Indian, Thai.

Definitely. I dislike most fast food chains. When it is desirable to eat some quickly and cheap, there usually are local places (or smaller chains) where the food is signifiicantly better and healthier yet not much more expensive.

Exactly, my friend.   The Vietnamese and Indian places are just about the same price as fast food......Thai a bit more, but worth it.

Very true. I can eat Thai near my house for $7. It really doesn't make much sense to head to the burger king and pay the same price for something that'll make you a fat.

Desire is an awfully strong word used to describe American culinary mediocrity.  (Wow, I sound like Opebo.)

But seriously guys -- I am a fat and I love a good burger.  But fast food?  If I absolutely have to, because I am on the road and pressed for time, Burger King.  Most of the rest just tastes like ass.  The Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich approaches being tolerable. 

There is a chain here called "Rally's" but I think, in other parts of the country, it is called something else.  It's not bad. 

I much prefer taking the time to find a locally-owned restaurant with a wait staff, a full bar and a respectable menu.  Not even thinking about caloric or health considerations.  Just quality and atmosphere.  Eating should be enjoyed...savored.  Not scarfed down.

Taco Bell, Taco Mayo, Taco Bueno, hell probably any mexican fast food restaurant (must be the Southwest American in me).
If there was a fast food buffalo wing restaurant, I would totally be raging for it.
Popeyes.
Does Subway count?

I just had some Jack in the Box yesterday.  Pretty good food, I like their innovative menu.  Their milkshakes are tasty and good.  Ever tried their Teriyaki rice bowls?  Those are good, hot steaming and fresh, even though the rice is americanized.  They're expanding big in Colorado and around Denver.

We have a local chain in CO called Smash Burger, it's a bit pricy but oh so good. Beef made fresh, not frozen.  Fries are crispy and awesome.

What most Coloradians desire is an In n Out. The closest one is in SW Utah.  I already e-mailed them and they're looking into it.  Had some in San Diego, it was packed, fresh and delicious.

We need to get is more steak houses.  We already have Lonestar, Salt Grass, Outback, Texas Roadhouse.  I ate at a Longhorn Steakhouse in Jacksonville, FL really good stuff.

Wow, where do you live that Indian food is as cheap as fast food?  Back in St. Louis there is a fair amount of Indian food but its usually $8-11 for the lunch buffets and maybe $12-20 per person for dinner.  The only place that you could possibly eat for the $6 fast food price would be the vegetarian Indian place.  Vietnamese, yes, could be closer to the fast food price, but still just a little higher - maybe $8-12 for dinner with a beverage.

I'm sorry, but chain steakhouses are, in general, disgusting.  Why not go for a locally owned steakhouse?

I was at a restaurant last summer (excuse me, it was actually a Supper Club.. not many of those around anymore) and it was so tacky with its 1970s era faux elegance... but the food was amazing.  The steak was fork tender and the Yorkshire puddings (I can't think of the other name we use for them when they're bigger..) were also really good.  Plus the owner was a lady from Berlin and we spoke German to eachother, which is always a plus in my book.

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

If this is true...then there is a god!

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?

Do you live near Hackensack? Have you ever been to White Manna?
I live about 5-10 miles from Hackensack (I'm not hiding I honestly don't remember the measurement from Rutherford ot Hackensack).  The restaurant is great, if you have been there, I often play tennis at the club across the street and my coach ALWAYS stops there.  Personally, I think its great but overrated a little bit

No?  What is it?  I just lump it in with all those junky chains.

Junky? Geesh, you must be a picky connoisseur. It's not your definition of fast food, which of course is a completely negative connotation. Subway sandwiches aren't really all that bad. They do what they do and IMHO they do it decently. I fail to see what the difference would be between buying a Subway sandwich and making a sandwich at your own house.
