McD's has always been about convenience and being a cheap meal moreso than taste.

There is a local chain here called Char Grill that is really good and we like Red Robin quite a bit.

Firebird's also makes a very good burger.

Cookout here in NC is really good, and really cheap. I bet doublee has heard of it.

McDonald’s Happy Meal resists decomposition for six months

Vladimir Lenin, King Tut and the McDonald's Happy Meal: What do they all have in common? A shocking resistance to Mother Nature's cycle of decomposition and biodegradability, apparently.

That's the disturbing point brought home by the latest project of New York City-based artist and photographer Sally Davies, who bought a McDonald's Happy Meal back in April and left it out in her kitchen to see how well it would hold up over time.

The results? "The only change that I can see is that it has become hard as a rock," Davies told the U.K. Daily Mail.

She proceeded to photograph the Happy Meal each week and posted the pictures to Flickr to record the results of her experiment. Now, just over six months later, the Happy Meal has yet to even grow mold. She told the Daily Mail that "the food is plastic to the touch and has an acrylic sheen to it."

I'm not much of a meat eater anymore, but I've yet to find a national chain that beats a homemade patty melt.

I've started mixing lean ground beef with barbecue sauce, onions and garlic. I don't salt anything anymore and don't miss it.
I grill the burgers on aluminum foil to keep them from falling apart and serve them with cheese.

Cat, even lean ground beef has fat in it. You are basically frying the burgers in their own fat by cooking on foil.

Or do you poke holes in the foil?

I poke holes in the foil. Also, you don't get fat by eating fat. You need some fat in your diet, just not too much..
