For $10, I can feed 3-5 people at Burger King.

Actually, we were discussing Burger King's 2 whopper meal deal for $10.

I think it's overpriced. He/She doesn't.

I think it's overpriced, as well. They should either, A) make it S value deals for $8, or B) let you buy one whopper meal for $5 w/o having to get both.

What is S? Are you talking small value?

"or B) let you buy one whopper meal for $5 w/o having to get both."

They should go with Wendy's $4 for $4 route.

Easily the $5 Cravings Deal Box from Taco Bell. A burrito supreme, Cheesy Gordita Crunch, hard shell taco, nachos and cheese, and a medium drink.

No. Cookout as in the fast food restaurant that has the best value meals. You know, the thing that the whole thread is about.

Apologies. I'm in the south (U.S.). Different jargon/semantics, I suppose.

No worries. As far as I know, Cookout restaurants are only in the south. You should check it out if there's one near you.

Cheapskate mofo's. I just get whatever I want or let my wife pick. I don't even look at prices at fast food joints, it's not like accidentally walking into a Johnny Carino's or anything.

Jahnny Carino's isn't too pricey if I recall, too. Been about 7 years, though.

Taco Bell by far. If you come in with $10 you can feed three or four people and they'll be full!

@chasinthetrane: "Taco Bell by far. If you come in with $10"

You can feed 3 with the $5 box

"and they'll be full!"

And they should be full.

That's a bit exaggerated. It's not that filling.

So far, I loved Wendy's 4 for $4 menu! A Jr. Classic Bacon Cheese, small fries, 4 nuggets, and a small drink. It's pretty much the best bang for the buck, that other chains are copying.

Burger King, on the other hand, while quality may vary, may steal this away. I enjoy their 2 for $5 all year. Despite being a ripoff of McDonalds deal that's only seasonal, it's still in effect all year.

So OT, what are the best deals in your favorite fast food restaurant?

I'd stick with Burger King. Wendy's gave me a bone in their meals, they did not believe me, so they asked me to bring it to them, and i did.

They gave me my $30+ dollars back. And i never went back there again. Second time some funny stuff is added to my meal.

Burger King, seems to have big deals going on. So i say BK man !!

Thats the Pittsburg CA, Loveridge location. Not cool man. I know Wendy's has good food, but never again for me to that location.

What you spend $30 on?

Also, is Wendy's the same chain that had a woman claim she found a finger in her salad?

#84 Posted by shellcase86 (4103 posts) -

My problem w/ BK is the service -- it is consistently slow, which would be forgivable if the food was usually fresh and well-prepared.

Granted, they're franchises, and each franchise operates differently. However, they all seem to have slow service down to an identifying hallmark of the brand.

McDonalds and Wendys have the best deals to me and I enjoy their food. It is still expensive though because I live in Seattle. Really prevents me from eating there often.

Papa John's will do a 50% off deal win the local baseball team scores more than 5 runs in a game. Not something I take advantage of often, but it's nice on a random weekend day.

By value meal, do you mean the combo (burger, fries, & drink, i.e. "I'll have a number 1")? BK, KFC, and most all other fast food joints have those, too.

McDonalds here has a set of cheaper combos that are called "value meals". They're okay. But I've never gone for that at BK or KFC. Haven't noticed any cheaper options.
