Culvers by far though calling it fast food is a bit of a stretch. At least there is quality to their stuff and it hasnt been sitting under a heat lamp. Making me hungry for a double cheeseburger.

For burgers, Steak and Shake, but it's kinda expensive, IMO. Arby's is good also.

We don't have Steak and Shake here.....do they serve steak too? Hope thats not a dumb question.

And you have me craving Arby's, there aren't many here, so I don't think of them for the drive thru....

For burgers, I like In and Out...I also like Jack in the Box

(In and Out has a neat animation intro page on their website with a lot of '60s Dodge Darts and '50s Ford trucks going thru their drive thru).

Do you have the In and Out website handy?

Sonic, America's Drive-in.

Link: http://www.sonicdrivein.com/

Oh man, i love Sonic, but the closest one is in PA, and as I recall there is only one :(

Otherwise, although neither of these are drive-thru, Quinozs and Subway are awesome

Arby's has the best chicken, and there shakes are awesome, but again, none close to where I live.

For burgers, Wendy's makes the best that I can easily get to, and McDonalds's snack wraps, when fresh are awesome, their fries, when fresh, are unbeatable.

The best burger I have had to date anywhere is the Ku Ku, a place in Miami, OK, that 68, myself, my girlfriend, and another friend ate at during our trip to Tulsa last year.

Spangles also makes great food, but they're only in Wichita, KS

Lastly, when I want fish, screw Burger King or McDonald's, it's Long John Silver's

Also I get coffee from Dunkin' Donuts almost every morning.

Ok I'm done :P

No, they just call their hamburgers "steakburgers," hence Steak and Shake. The original Steak and Shake is about 5 minutes from my house, give or take, so that's probably one reason why they're popular around here. We have Arby's all over around here, too. I go there about once a week, usually get regular roast beef and curly fries.

That's what those items are called. Animal means sauteed chopped onion + special sauce + mustard (or cheese slice if fries). Protein = lettuce instead of bun. And they've had "protein style" since the 60s.

We ahve a very limited selection here in N.E. but I'm a Wendy's kind of guy.

The best burger I have had to date anywhere is the Ku Ku, a place in Miami, OK, that ^8, myself, my girlfriend, and another friend ate at during our trip to Tulsa last year.

Amen, I think... no I'm almost sure they either put crack or Heroin in it.

There are many Sonics in PA, and we have one close, but I haven't been there. I'll have to try it sometime. I am trying to cut down on bad foods. Croc, I am so sorry dude, but it really looks like somebody vomited on those french fries... nasty. The "protein style" burger, however, is interesting. I remember when Burger King tried serving a "low carb" Whopper... it came without a bun. I took my mom there for lunch one day, and she ordered one... then proceeded to complain when she got it: "where's the BUN???":lol:

Culver's, A&W, and Steak n' Shake are some of my favorites. I haven't been to a Sonic in years, but I should go again...last time I had it was when we lived in Kansas many years ago.

Here in CR, one of the last vintage A&W drive-ins was lost in the flood and won't be re-opening. It was mom and pop owned; kinda sad to see it go.

In and Out

They are in 4 Western states only, apparently (CA, AZ, NV, UT).

Another favorite burger chain that I like (no drive thru, though) is Fatburger.

Another fast food chain (no drive thru) I like a lot is L&L Hawaiian Barbeque...they are 10 states now, I remember when they were only in Hawaii (like Zippys).

Must be, those burgers un otherworldly in their goodness. Almost worth a trip there just to have one or 2. :P

Speaking of fries, any fans of poutine or steak frites? Both can be quite tasty, IMHO.

I don't do much fast food anymore because it's healthier and cheaper to either cook my own food or just go to a sit-down restaurant. The last place I went to was Wendy's a few months ago. They are good - a cut above McD's and BK that we normally have around here - and I am tempted to get one of their new strawberry swirl frostees. I do Quizno's and Subway every now and then, and there's a Tropical Smoothie place nearby that makes fantastic sandwiches and wraps.

I went to an In-n-Out in San Diego and I don't understand the hype. The burger I got was like your average McD's burger.

Jack in the Box is awesome. Love their fries. Everything I've ever had was made fresh. You can get breakfast anytime you want.

If you're ever in Texas, check out Taco Cabana. Not really a drive thru, but it blows Taco Bell clear out of the water.
