    I would take McDonald's over Luby's any day of the week. I have been to Luby's twice and found that all of their tastes the same... Bland.

    At McDonald's, 2 Big Mac meals, consisting of loads of fat and sugar, burgers that you have to use a microscope to see, and cokes - This is for 2 people - Is going to run you almost as much. Why? Do some people want to end up fat and unhealthy?

    McDonald's, Burger King, and all the rest, are junk food, and junk food eventually kills. I would rather spend about a buck more for my wife and myself, and live a little longer. How about you?
    How you can spend $15 for two people at McDonalds is beyond me. I can feed a family of four there (granted, to-go with no drinks) for about $12. Is it great food? Of course not, you get what you pay for.

    I haven't got a clue what Luby's is, we don't have cafeterias around here.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Danny;

    There is a popular BBQ place not far from the AstroDome that some locals took me to several years ago but I can't remember the name. It was the best BBQ I've ever had.

    I was amazed at the take-out business they had.

    For $3.00 dollars at McDonalds I can get a double cheeseburger,small fries and a small drink. For two people thats $6.00.

    I would rather spend about a buck more for my wife and myself, and live a little longer. How about you?
    Unless you are eating at McDonalds every single day McDonalds is not going to kill you or turn you into a lard ass. Besides you would get bored eating at McDonalds every day. What kind of life do you live if you or your wife can't cook a meal at home?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    If you're gonna get Big Mac's then yea, it's gonna be a little expensive. You gotta look at the Dollar Menu!

    Whenever I feel cheap, I get two $1 Mcdouble, 2 pies (cheery/apple) for $1, and take it home. Never get soda, since it's always cheaper to get it at the store.

    Get two extra value meals. With tax that can come up to about $15, particularly if you get the chicken items. Or you could get 13 dollar menu burgers instead.

    Fastfood is nasty.

    Subway for the win! Some would wager that Subway is fast food. I would say: "Nay. Subway is not fastfood, for it does not suck."

    Subway is not nearly as healthy as they like to say it is.
