Was reading there that Subway have overtaken McDonald’s as the biggest fast food provider in the world. Surprise to me. Are we behind the times in Ireland or am I unusual in never feeling in any way tempted to eat Subway. Had one once in the States and thought it was manky.
Ignoring the premium efforts like Edward J Rockett’s I’d probably rank the chains as
1 Burger King
Hate McDonald’s for some reason, not ideological though I dislike that too but Burger King are hardly a noble enterprise.
Fucking Subway always seems manky to me though and very messy eating in an uncomfortable environment.
I like Supermacs because you generally have a wider range of options; chicken pieces, curry sauce etc, but not a great fan of their burgers.
I really like McDonalds cheese burgers but could take or leave the other stuff. The Eurosaver menu is great value though.
Burger King, meh.
I went through a right phase of eating subway but I’d rarely get it these days. Just lost interest in it.
I read somewhere before that there was a higher fat/salt content in a footlong than a BigMac? Also are McDonalds and Subway owned by the same company?
I wouldn’t count Subway as fast food necessarily. It is more like a Deli type arrangment.
McDonalds win on the basis of their chips. Burger King next - and then a huge gap to the rest which are average.
While Eddie Rockets was mentioned, I dined there last night with a friend. A bowl of regular fries arrived with our food which neither of us had ordered. I assumed she had ordered it but she said she didnt. I wanted to give them back to the cheeky gits but she said that she’d eat them. She threw on a big dallop of ketchup and ate about 3.
I rarely eat in any of them bar Eddie Rockets, but I was in McDonalds lately for the first time in years and thought it was pretty good and massively improved. Can’t look at a Burger King after being poisoned as a student in there.
Wouldn’t bother with Subway, most decent towns have a Quigleys type sandwich place these days. Far better.
I’ve only eaten in Nando’s twice and I was abroad both times.
I thought it was nice. Those top two you named aren’t really chains so fuck off with em, or else the Limerick Chippers Group will arive en-masse and turn this into another Limerick Chippers thread.
You have been warned.
