List Rules Vote up the fast food and fast casual restaurants that are worth returning to daily. Restaurants that are primarily sit-down experiences like Olive Garden or Panera Bread are not eligible.

Imagine your worst-case scenario: You're trapped on a desert island with no restaurants, grocery stores, or kitchens. Just one airdrop per day of the same food, over and over... and over... and over again. Sure, you can pick and choose off a menu, but it's the same menu. Every. Single. Day. What do you choose? That's the delicious quandary we offer to you here. Vote up the fast food restaurant you could eat at every single day for the rest of your life if you had to. Vote down the ones you know would drive you batty if you were forced to eat it. Enjoy... if you can!
