Funny how KFC is in 4th place and in my city there's 3 of them . One of them looks like an abandoned place, there's no more tables as there were ripped out, if you want to sit you'll be sitting on a stub as the seats were vandalized, the wall lamps are gone and wires sticking out dangling. Floors haven't been cleaned in years. Punched holes every where.

The other 2 the decor still dates back from the early 80's with everything sun faded with pastel pinks and greens with thick black crud along the floor. Ice for sodas, isn't always available. They are too cheap to fix them. No handle on the lav and no hot water.

Also funny how it's written in bold hand writing on a stained page no free refills!!

Well we can't all be so lucky as to live that closely to our drug dealers.

hers an interesting link on what fast food supports libtards and which ones conservative...
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...-XdhXlLUwg3h88




1. Chick-fil-A: Conservative



It’s pretty common knowledge that Chick-fil-A is a conservative restaurant. | MANDEL NGAN/AFP/GettyImages)


Chick-fil-A has a long history of opposing the LGBT community, ThinkProgress reminds us. And while the company vowed to stop giving so much money to groups with anti-LGBT agendas after they made national news in 2012, tax documents show this didn’t last long. In 2014, Chick-fil-A gave over a million dollars to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a group strongly against homosexuality.



2. Chipotle: Liberal

3. Pizza Hut: Conservative



Pizza Hut is a fan of Republicans. | Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images


While many chain restaurants lean on the liberal side, it seems most pizza places are right-leaning. Gizmodo reports Pizza Hut spent nearly $700,000 in recent elections, with 98.9% of that money going to Republicans. And in the 2012 election, it seems most pizza places favored Mitt Romney, as he received the majority of the funding.

In more recent news, Saudi Arabia is also boycotting Pizza Hut since Trump decided Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.



4. Starbucks: Liberal

5. Papa John’s: Conservative



Papa John’s has not been shy about it’s conservative views. | Spencer Platt/Getty Images


If you’re a fan of Papa John’s pizza, you’re probably aware of the noise CEO John Schnatter made recently. In 2012, Schnatter said he opposed Obamacare since it would cost the company $5-8 million annually, Business Insider reports. Schnatter also donated $1,000 to Trump’s campaign, but didn’t publicly support the president during that time. He also believes in a more Republican business approach in that he wants businesses to be less regulated by the government so they can thrive.


6. Shake Shack: Liberal

7. White Castle: Conservative



White Castle is definitely a conservative restaurant. | Win McNamee/Getty Images


As for right-leaning burger restaurants, White Castle is certainly in this category. Forbes notes the CEO and grandson of the founder of the company donates almost exclusively to Republican candidates. And White Castle’s vice president said the GOP tax bill will greatly help the company and working class Americans in general. Vice President Jamie Richardson tells Fox Business, “It’s the biggest good thing for small business in three decades and a generation.”



8. Dairy Queen: Liberal



Warren Buffet owns Dairy Queen and he has pretty liberal views. | Win McNamee/Getty Images


It’s true that Trump saw a donation of $266 from one Dairy Queen employee during his campaign. But overall, this restaurant specializing in fast food and frozen treats swings left. The Huffington Post explains Warren Buffet’s company acquired Dairy Queen in 1998. And Buffet himself has openly supported Obama during his first presidential run. Also, though Buffet is certainly part of the 1%, he supported higher taxes for the rich — a very liberal stance indeed.


9. Waffle House: Conservative



Waffle House has historically donated to Republicans. | SeanPavonePhoto/Getty Images


If you’re a Republican, you’re in good company with Waffle House. Salon reports the company’s political action committee has exclusively given money to Republicans in the past, and the CEO is a supporter of right-leaning causes. In 2012, Waffle House gave $100,000 to the Karl Rove political action committee, too. And in 2006, the CEO also had ties to Mitt Romney.


10. Popeye’s Chicken: Liberal



It’s safe to say that Popeyes is a liberal restaurant. | Joe Raedle/Getty Images


This restaurant chain is pretty quiet with their politics, especially when compared with the other chicken fast food giant, Chick-fil-A. The Huffington Post says Popeye’s doesn’t have a political action committee they can directly track, but the company chairman donates to Democratic politicians in Florida. He’s also a man of science, as he serves on the National Stem Cell Foundation to promote and fund research. Considering Paul Ryan voted against stem cell research four times, this definitely puts him on the opposite end of the political spectrum.


11. KFC: Conservative

For those who want to support Republican ideals along with their bucket of fried chicken, KFC is the place to go. Forbes notes Yum! Brands, the parent company of KFC, Taco Bell, and A&W, gave 87% of its donations to Republicans in the 2012 election cycle. And in 2016, Yum! also gave over $2,o00 to the Every Republican is Crucial PAC that promises to “return us to our conservative roots,” says Eater.


12. Panera Bread: Liberal

Everyone’s favorite soup and sandwich place swings to the left when it comes to politics. During the 2016 election cycle, Panera gave 68% of their donations to Democrats, says Eater. And The Huffington Post says the company’s founder and CEO gave $30,000 to the DNC during the 2012 election cycle. Additionally, he donated $5,000 to Barack Obama.



13. McDonald’s: Conservative



McDonald’s is surprisingly conservative. | Kenzo Tribouillard/AFP/Getty Images


You’ve certainly been to this fast food restaurant. And Eater says during the 2016 election season, McDonald’s gave 63% of its donations, which equalled nearly $2 million, to Republicans. While it’s clear where the company’s PAC stands, typically the workers of fast food restaurants lean more liberal. In the case of McDonald’s, the opposite is true. McDonald’s workers also donated over $3,000 to Trump’s campaign.



14. Wendy’s: Conservative

Forbes notes Wendy’s fairly donates to both parties — but they’re also more partial to the red. Throughout the 2016 election cycle, Eater reports Wendy’s donated nearly $700,000 to Republicans. And in 2012, the billionaire chairman contributed to Mitt Romney and Herman Cain’s campaigns. And so far in 2018, OpenSecrets.org reports Wendy’s is strongly in favor of the right as per usual, with 90% of their contributions going to the Republican party.


15. IHOP: Conservative



We still aren’t completely sure which side of the bridge IHOP is on. | Wolterk/Getty Images


We know IHOP for their many pancake options more so than for their social media, but after the company shared an anti-Clinton tweet, it seemed clear which party the company favored. The Washington Examiner explains IHOP reposted a tweet from one user that said “Hillary Clinton had a major garbage campaign.” IHOP deleted the tweet and maintained that they were hacked after the fact.

Twitter aside, Eater says DineEquity, the parent company of IHOP, gave 96% of their donations to the GOP in 2016.

I will forever miss the chicken fajitas at mcdonalds. Those things were amazing. You can keep your personal pizza, they were meh. But those chicken fajitas man. Until they changed the flavoring for the grilled chicken the grilled ranch snack wraps were pretty close to them in flavor.



The chicken ranchero soft taco from taco bell is pretty good too.

One of my favorites from Wendy’s was the jalapeño double melt! Haven’t seen it in over 10 years...

Angry whopper

Taco Bell needs to bring back their steak and potato $5 box!

I miss KFC. There's one 5 minutes from me but the quality has gone downhill since it changed ownership. They let the chicken sit for hours so it get soggy if you don't get there when it's fresh out of the fryer. I've even told them I'm willing to wait for them to make fresh chicken. Then they give me stuff that's far from fresh. After the second time that happened I haven't returned.

You can see their reviews from several years ago were good and started dropping when the new owners took over. They're located near a highway exit so I guess that keeps them busy enough to stay open.
