One restaurant because you just don't like it, what would it be? I was thinking fast food but it could be any.
DD votes for McDonald's because it's not healthy.

Arby's was good

at least in Austin Texas when they opened in the late 60's. The shop was clean and served a roast beef sandwich piled high on the bun. Yum! But you are right most of them are gross now.

I would get rid of Jack in the Box. Never liked them.

I gotta say, I sneak out and get some french fries at McDonald's sometimes. I like Burger King burgers but not their fries. And I really don't like Arby's.

I would be fine if Arby's, Chick Fil -a, Burger King, Taco Bell, any of those closed. I do eat Wendy's every once in a while, and McD on the road. Not often, but I would miss them if they disappeared.

I like Taco Cabana- that is fast food.

Burger King of the Fast Foods
Chipotle's liked it when it first opened here, but the help became sketchy and the place wasn't clean even when it wasn't busy.

Captain D's and Long John Silver's....we have both of those in our area and it's a running joke that they're a front for some money alundering scheme.
On a more local note, there's a local diner that I think really needs to go under. It's in a sketchy area, it looks like a dump, and it seems to be open incredibly od hours. No social media presence. the food is adequate but not something you'd go out of the way for.

I love Wendy's frosty and McDonald's diet coke. If I had to get rid of one fast food place it would be Long John Silvers. Fast food fish and shrimp sounds horrible.

Oooo... about once a year I want some of that greasy battered Long Jogn Silver's fish and hush puppies.
I can't stand White Castle. It's gross and it stinks.

I havenít seen a Long John Silvers since college. Are they even around. I would vote for this, but I think theyíre already gone.

I like McDís fries now and then.

The whole concept of Arbyís grossed me out. I vote Arbyís.

Long John Silver's is still around. They're part of Yum! Brands based here. They're struggling, though. A friend's husband actually works on their marketing team.

Another vote for Burger King. Bad fry, and their whoppers do not taste, or even look, grilled. Ours just isn't even trying, lol. Dirty too.

Don't you dare come for my McDonald's fries!

I could do away with Carl's Junior or Wendy's. I'm not yet willing to toss out BK, despite the fact that their fries are truly the worst, because I like their oval shaped chicken sandwich even though I haven't had one in years.

Moe's Southwest Grill

Everything tastes like plastic to me. And I don't want people saying "Welcome to Moe's" when I walk in. I sometimes don't want to call attention to myself in case one of my student's parents is lurking in the store ready to pounce on me and have a student conference right then and there.

OK. I'm retired and don't have to do that stuff anymore. But I still don't want to say "hi" to some parent that I don't recognize and pretend that I remember them and their sweet little darling. I'm not as glib as I used to be.
