    My favorite fast-food Abby's always seems to be a few miles off the beaten path. I do go to Burger King once a week or so.im trying to support local carry out so I'll get Thai or BBQ once a week as well.

    Usually Burger King or Zaxby's, mainly because they are close. Usually 2-3 times a week. Havn't had Chick Fil A since beginning of March. Just don't want to wait in that line.

    Haven't had delivery from anywhere.

    I don't get the love affair many people have with Chik Fil A

    One moved in near me last year and I finally tried it --- was surprised everything was boneless chicken patties

    If I want that i'll just buy a pack of Tysons at the local grocery store

    Yeah, it's just a chicken burger. Wow, yay! I know that the place is like a religion to some people (no pun intended ) but all the line ups for what is basically a fast food chicken burger are ridiculous. Reminds me of when Krispy Kreme came to town and had huge line ups. It's a friggin' donut, people, get over it. Not surprisingly, the local Krispy Kremes are all out of business now.

    I am a huge fan of Longhorn Steakhouse, Buckhead Mountain Grill and other assorted varieties of the same except Outback. I hope every location burns to the ground.

    That said, I have zero plans to go out to eat for a long time. I doubt the restaurant business will every return to any semblance of normalcy. We just trained all of North America that ANYTHING can be delivered to your house. I don't see the normal traffic flow returning to capacity. Doordash and Grubhub might as well be printing money now. They cleaned up on this. Julie and I have survived with pizza delivery from locally owned only and Chinese. Probably three times a week I'll put some fish in the oven and have sandwiches or make a bunch of wings, usually 25. I can go more but the pizza stone I use to cook them can only hold so many and I'm too lazy to make a second batch.

    To answer the main question that started this thread, I'll eat out but only carry out/delivery. I really don't see myself having a sitdown meal till 2021. I'm not one for taking chances.
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    ^Wow, Scott! What did Outback do? Something personal, or are they an evil corporation I don't know about?

    I heard Steak N' Shake is taking a hit from this, closing half of its locations. I like the food, but the service there is usually iffy at best. Its so cheap, you can't complain too much... but I don't think it creates an atmosphere of brand loyalty in a time like this.

    I'm a Steak N Shake fan, and it troubles me driving by the closed restaurants. Our local one is still open and I hope it doesn't go away. The owner of Steak N Shake in my opinion is the problem. He's trying to compete with the McDonalds, Wendy's and Burger King on price and it's killing their margins. Steak N Shake always was higher priced, but the food was better quality. I'll happily pay more for better quality. but maybe I'm in the minority.

    Regarding Chick-Fil-A, it's quick and that's about all I have to say about it.

    One of favorite fast food places finally opened in my town right around the time everything shut down. Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers. I had it once the week they opened in March, and since we haven't been having anything take out or delivery since then that was my last time having it. It's has good food, a lot like Steak N Shake or Culvers.

    Yeah, now that you say that, I realize Steak N' Shake changed their model to "cheap prices" a few years back. I guess that hasn't worked out for them.

    We recently got a Freddy's in the town I work in (well, used to work in before working from home). It basically is Steak N' Shake food with Culver's custard for dessert. Not bad, but much pricier than current SNS.

    Oh, and I personally like Chick-Fil-A, because I really love their Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Wendy's really screwed the pooch when they changed their menu a few years back, including their Spicy Chicken. I really don't care for how their sandwiches are dressed, or their fries too much now. So I'd rather go Chick to get a Spicy.

    But we LOVE Raisin' Cane's Chicken Fingers. That Cane's Sauce...man. I would eat rusty nails covered in that!
