    Best Fast Food Value

    I spend a lot of time driving around the state. Also spend a lot of time grabbing food for the road. What do you guys think is the best fast food/convenience store value for food, or even best food at one of those places in general?
    Personally I have become a huge fan of QT and the 2/$2 jalapeno cheese dogs. Then a fountain drink and I am out the door for around $3.
    Also like the corndogs there.

    Casey's food I think tastes the best but for the price I could hit up a buffet in town.
    How great is it to be able to get already made pizza rolls???!!!!


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Yup, pretty tough to top Wendy's for combination of price, selection, and tastiness.

    I love Wendys as well, but its the only fast food chain that can cause my body to liquify food that fast. Im curious as to their secret dietary ingredient.

    Re: Best Fast Food Value

    Depending on what part of the state you're in, if you come by a Kwik Star or Kwik Trip on a Wednesday, I'd stop in there. They have an item for $1 every Wednesday and it rotates every week. Sometimes you can get a slice of pizza for $1, then next week it could be a chicken sandwich or cheeseburger and such.

    Wendy's dollar menu, and it's not even close. I will sometimes splurge for a spicy chicken go wrap (I think around $1.39).

    Also, I don't think value meals have much value any more. It seems like when they started offering them, you basically were getting either the drink, or fries for free. Now I don't think you really save much.

    Taco Bell's value menu is good, and the $2 meal deals are awesome.

    Taco Bell and Wendy's are the two best values right now, IMHO.

    When in Ames, Jeff's Pizza has two enormous slices and a pop for $5. Otherwise, I go for the BK $1 doubles.

    This.

    My dad and I travel a lot. What we do before we hit the road is buy some bags of chips. Which takes the place of the fries. Then buy a 12-pack of pop and throw them in the cooler. That way we can stop at Arbys and get 2 or 3 of the junior roast beefs instead of paying $8 per person for a full meal.

    Tasty Tacos is the best. Whenever I'm in town I stop in to grab a few flour tacos.

    BK Doubles. How could I forget about those. Throw in the value rings and you've got a great meal.

    Had a stop at KFC yesterday and spent 3.49 on a BBQ sandwhich, side salad, and a water. Not bad
