Me, too. A franchised store back in the '80s.

Back then, it was Egg McMuffins, Big Breakfasts (with sausage and hash brown), Hot Cakes (with sausage) and danish (steamed or cold). They (or at least our store) added biscuits while I was there (favorite shift was biscuit maker for breakfast shift, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. for our store).

Always liked the Egg McMuffins, myself. Never thought much of the coffee then, still do not. But we had regulars who would come through the drive thru daily for coffee, one guy who always ordered "two large coffees in a tray" and nothing else.

Can't mention the Egg McMuffin without thinking of Lazlo Toth ...

This exactly. The fact is fast food and "junk" food are the most feasible options for a lot of people with limited time and/or money. Just don't overdo it and you'll be fine.

I think that has to depend on location because the one closest to me has the most terrible, watery mess I've ever had

A McD's sausage biscuit is a buck. For some reason, I find their greasy, fatty sausage patty to be delicious. I'll sometimes sneak one in the mornings with spare change. It's not healthy, but it tastes good.

A couple weeks ago, I headed out to McD's from the office and got a big breakfast with hotcakes/sausage. I threw the biscuit away, ate the hash brown on the way back, and ate the hotcakes/eggs/sausage at the office. It was better than any fast food breakfast I've had in awhile, and only $6 or so with a Diet Coke.

Anyone else fond of a McD's breakfast?
I remember as a kid, on Saturday mornings, going with my dad to McDonald's for a big breakfast (when both the upper and lower shells were styrafoam) and the Minute Maid orange juice in the plastic cup, foil lid, that you poked a special straw through.

Then there was Shoney's breakfast buffet, but that was a different story.

I haven't had fast food in I don't know how long, but I can tolerate McD's breakfast foods. I prefer to make my own Egg McMuffins with a Thomas's English muffin, egg, ham, and cheese. They taste way better than fast food.

Don't care how thick the meat is or how good the sandwich is, none of their "food" is healthy or good for you.
That's ok, and you don't have to eat it. I don't see anyone here so far saying it's a part of their daily diet.

Also, fast food is certainly a small part of the obesity problem. Only a small part.
That's a topic not food related and better left unsaid here..
