    McDonald's or Luby's (or any other cafeteria)

    It is easy to drop 15 bucks at a McDonald's nowadays, but why? You can spend the same amount of money at a good cafeteria, and can even get your food to go. So, here is my poll.

    BTW, yesterday, I spent $14.00 at Luby's. For myself, I got baked fish, mashed potatoes, and spinach, along with a roll and butter. For my wife, she had a chopped steak, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli, along with a roll and butter.

    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?

    Why not spend even less and prepare it at home?

    We also do that, but the topic of the thread is food to go. Which do you think is better?

    I don't really care to be honest, i eat what works for me at the time ... (The fact that it might kill me does not cross my mind at all)
    Sometimes i go out cafe or cook, other times i crave for my junk food and will eat alot of it.

    Ya, I'd rather eat healthy. When you factor in all the health problems associated with fast food, it's really not very cheap at all.


    P.S. What in the world is Luby's?

    I can't. This is important.

    I love Luby's. OUrs closed down about 5 years ago, though. It was a sad day for me (and for my kids).

    Re: McDonald's or Luby's (or any other cafeteria)

    My favorite places around town tend to be slightly more expensive for me than McDonalds. McDonald's I can honestly get enough to eat there for 3 bucks, it says a lot about it's quality. There are some places I love that I can not get enough to eat..namely any place with good sushi. But even at Gohan Time or Oshima Ramen I'm spending just myself about 10 bucks. Those are sorta standard, not horribly expensive restaurants. And the ramen at Oshima Ramen is soooooooooo good. Roll Cafe in town I can probably get some good amount of food for maybe 8 or so bucks. Though I rarely spend that little there. Tako nigiri style sushi is my downfall.

    God I love Colorado.

    Well I guess this is all preference. While I like home cooking style food better then fast food, the last Lubys I ate at turned me off. They were very unclean and ecky. So given the two choices listed here I would have to go with Micky D's.

    I have never spent more than two dollars at McDonald's; it's called the dollar menu.
