Which is your favorite place for a quick bite to eat?

Mine is Panera Bread. I like their awesome free Wi-Fi as much as their great food.

My favorite place to stop is Culver's. They are big here in the midwest and have the best fries of any fast food chain. I'm partial to the Wisconsin Cheddar melt myself.

Plain old MacDonalds for me! I don't eat out much, when I'm out I'll just grab a chocolate bar or some sugary drink to do me over till I'm home. So either Maccy D's or Boots (Meal Deal).

A Thai Chicken Stir Fry, but if I was really desperate, I might go as low as a KFC Chicken Sandwich (but that's very rare).

Jersey Mike's. They make submarine sandwiches. They're expanding and now have locations in CA and a few other states.

Tim Horton's Chicken salad sandwich meal (with doughnut and coffee).

That, or What A Bagel.

For a quick bite to eat, we usually stop at McDonalds drive through. When you go in, you can see how disgusting the kitchen is and it makes me loose my appetite, so we usually go through the drive through. I know, I know... :p

I enjoy Wing Stop, and they know have small meals that you can buy.

How does Five Guys compare to In-N-Out?

I've had Five Guys but I haven't had In-N-Out yet. Darn, should had had it last time I was in Vegas.

Portillo's Hot Dogs in Chicago and the Chicago Metropolitan area! I recommend a chili dog or two, french fries and a vanilla milk shake. Then a piece of chocolate cake for dessert. yum.

I think I went to a Pita Pit once. Not too shabby.

Panera Bread is just aiiiight. I'd go there again if I was in an unfamiliar area and didn't know of any better mom-n-pop places nearby.

If I need a quick bite, I usually drop in at one of the many good local sandwich shops or taquerias.

I've had all five of them, and IMO, #5 should be #1. :p

My favorite place for something quick

Well, locally I like a place called Oasis Falafel (http://www.oasisfalafel.com/). If I can't find falafel somewhere (:D), Panera is a safe choice. I do enjoy their vege sandwich. In Japan, there are tons of places for a quick bite. My two favorites are Origins (love that nori bento!) and Ootoya. In London, I'll always go to Gaby's on Tottenham Ct. Road at least once (depends on the length of my stay). Basically, although I'm not a vegetarian, I prefer to eat vegetarian when I'm out and about... and I will not eat fast food unless I'm long-distance driving and don't have my GPS.

A local restaurant is my favorite (there is only 1) but up next is showmars

I'd rather have fried chicken than a hamburger from fast food.
