    I hate to admit that I buy fast food. Not often, I would guess once every week or two and I try to get the single items and not the meals. The food is so horrendous for your health and nobody denies that a home cooked meal is better all around... but there is always that situation where you pull in the drive through. I just went to this fast food place last night called Del Taco for the first time. Oh man, I was impressed. I got two burritos and their spicy sauce. It just hit the spot. My other two guilty pleasures are sourdough jacks from Jack in the Box and blizzards from Dairy Queen. Come October the blizzard of the month will be a pumpkin pie blizzard. As a man who does not like pumpkin pie.. I am telling you to get this blizzard. It is the best ice cream treat in the world... even if pumpkin isn't your thing. Anyone else have guilty pleasures about tasty fast food?

    edit: Oh, yeah, french fries are also the greatest thing ever. I never met anyone who didn't like french fries. yumm!!

    Double Down. I mean X2.

    Prefer extra crispy and original name.

    Popeye's is really good too but hard to find.

    Chips, like french fries only bigger. Soooo fattening but dripping in salt (another no no) and vinegar, between two slices of cheap supermarket bread, feast of the Gods!!!

    Zel's Roast Beef... Its a local place here in Lake County, Indiana with just a few locations.

    The chili cheese beef is to die for.
    It is: crinkle cut french fries topped with thin sliced roast beef topped with chili topped with cheese sauce.

    I have to admit that I really like KFC original recipe. My problem with it is not so much the fat content (which does not bother me at all) but the salt. As far as french fries I do love them but only when they are well done and crispy.
