I'm not a big fast food person since I am vegetarian and of course vegetarian offerings are pretty slim at most of these places but when I want to eat some junk I am all about Taco Bell

The most common fast food places here around Erie are McDonald's in Erie itself and in the 'burbs Subway is pretty big. There are plenty of different fast food options here.

Still, it kind of pales here compared to Bowling Green, KY. That place seems to have a chain/fast food restaurant every 20 feet...

I didn't realize there are now more Subways than McD's. I'm a huge fan of Subway because I love fresh vegetables. You can even order a sandwich as a "bowl", instead, minus any bread at all, for an extra charge. I haven't tried that yet.

I don't know, I only eat it every couple of years, & then it's on a road trip. We have all the main ones, in our small town. My neighbor gets taco bell several times a week.

Pick any major road and within a mile or two, you'll pass all of them. I usually go for the sandwich/sub places if I eat lunch. Jersey Mikes, Jon Smiths or a deli like Pickle Barrel. There are a few Primanti Brothers around, but I won't eat there, don't like fries on my sandwiches. There are a few food trucks that people rave about, but I haven't tried any of them. There is one BBQ place that I'll eat at, the Georgia Pig. Haven't found any other local "Q" joints that are even close to what I make at home.

Always enjoy reading these articles but am not sure how accurate they are. Heck, we eat out rarely and it is even rarer for us to eat at a fast food restaurant unless you consider the average chain "fast food" which many of us do. I am talking places like Chilis, Red Robin, etc. We do stop for a sandwich or salad when we have a long day away from home. We are more likely going to choose a local mom and pop place. Almost never do we eat at Micky D, Subway or Wendy's. We do like a Whopper about once a year. Now if we still lived in IN N Out states we would eat them, probably once a week.
