Fast-Food Chains That Don't Suck

By Stett Holbrook


I TYPICALLY avoid fast-food chains, but sometimes you've got no choice. Here are some good options.


Burger King The hamburgers are no good but the veggie burgers will do in a pinch.


In-N-Out Burger They really are different. Ask for "animal style" to get you burger loaded with extra toppings.


Jamba Juice Add some protein powder and a little wheat grass to your favorite smoothie and you've got a good, quick liquid meal.


El Pollo Loco So good it doesn't taste like fast food.


Rubio's The source for fast-food fish tacos par excellence.
