Although i know that i shouldn't eat in fast-food because i'm overweight.

Subway would be my favourite. And next two favourites I believe are Canadian only: Swiss Chalet (rotisserie Chicken and Ribs.. amazing), and Harvey's (better tasting burgers than other fast food joints, and the burger gets topped right in front of you like Subway does.)

I cant compare many of them, so we dont have that many fast food chains, and I eat fast food maybe once every two weeks. The two most common here are burger king and mcdonalds. I prefer the burger of burger kings, but McDonalds has the better shakes, salads and wraps. ^^

I tried Subway half a dozend time, when visiting capital city, so their sandwiches and the ordering system is fine, and I think they have the best cost/profit ratio, so you get for your money a sufficient portion in comparison to Mc Donalds/Burger King.

I tried Pizza hut 2-3 times, but that american pizza style with that cake-pastry and that wrong cheese covering and cloaking everything, instead of being beneath the ingredients and the Pizza, is not to my liking. I prefer the original italian style, which is very common here, because of them being our neighborcountry, so there are lots of italian restaurants that really have italian cooks.

KFC started now having two shops in our capital city, and I have been there once to try that famous "crispy chicken", you often see in series like south park and other stuff. So it tastes nice, but its so fatty, that I couldnt even eat the "normal" portion. (I think it was 4 chicken pieces.) How people are able to eat that monster KFC-bowls, you often see in american TV, is beyond my imagination. ^^

Around here "Schnitzl-places" are very popular (the name is program ^^), as well as sausage-hutts.

Burger King
Arby's

I am trying to figure out how Pizza Hut is considered fast food. Even Jeopardy has them in that category. They have table service and not a counter to order and receive food, and i have yet to be in one where the service was done in a timely manner.

When comparing an normal Italian restaurant to a Pizza Hut restaurant: The Pizza hut, will have specialized mostly on Pizzas, so like typical fast food restaurant they have a very limited menu card. While a normal italian restaurant will offer you whole menus including italian soups, italian main meal and side meal salads, a broad variation of noodle, gnocchi and cretin specialties, as well as typical italian seafood and lamb dishes. As well that I only have been few times in Pizza hut, but I think they wont have stuff like a winecard or waiters being able to recommend you wines for your menu. Just as from an real restaurant, I expect them to care for propper ingredients, so real prosciutto, mozarella, parmesan, while typical fast food restaurant simply will offer the minimum standard, but nothing more. As well that a fast food restaurant wont have any additional dishes in the menu, that need much time for preparation, like lambrips or other stuff. Or freshmade house Tiramisu and so on.

So in a restaurant a waiting time for your main meal of 25 minutes is ok, while if I go into Pizza Fast food restaurant, that offer me a limited menu to focus in serving me faster then a restaurant, and order a Pizza and needed to wait 25 minutes, I´d think they are a bit nuts. So fast food is not linked to me to getting it immediately myself at a counter, but simply everything that is fast done within about 10 minutes. Typical "sausage-hutts" around here offer you as well service, and unlike an McDonalds dont have everything prepared, but its simply stuff that is done very fast. So you order, the moment you have ordered they already throw the sausage in the bowling water, throw the Fries into the Fritteuse, and you are supposed to receive it at least in about 5 minutes.

Its simply about food, that is prepared easily without much effort and normally does not need longer then 10 minutes until being served. Pizza fulfills that. ^^

Is Chipotle considered fast food? If so, that's my favorite because I can get a bigger and more delicious burrito than what I can easily make at home (marinating, etc). Otherwise, all fast food is pretty much the same to me.

Subway, KFC and Wendy's. I know the last 2 are bad for you, but I like to get food from there once in awhile.

We all die eventually, not saying you should eat fast food everyday but just like eating one healthy meal won't heal all your sicknesses or make you skinny, eating one unhealthy meal won't do the opposite.
