I’m currently training for a race in a couple weeks, so my typical intake of fast food has been unfortunately way too low. But don’t let my temporary health kick make you think that I’m never not down for some easy and cheap junk food.

Thrillist recently put together a new list titled The Single Best Item At Every Major Fast-Food Chain. It’s a huge list that’s worth checking out if you’re a Fast-Foodophile, but I’ll take a look at the restaurants you can currently find in Rochester:


Beef ‘n Cheddar

This is easily my favorite thing to order, so I fully agree. My mouth is watering just thinking about that gooey cheese mixing with the Arby’s sauce. It’s extremely healthy.

Burger King

Chicken Fries

I’ve tried these once, and they’re just OK. I’m pretty lukewarm on The BK as it is, but I’d probably go with the Whopper or something with chicken, personally.


Cheddar ButterBurger with Bacon

Guys, I have a confession to make: I think our national obsession with bacon has gone too far. I like bacon with eggs, but do we really have to add it to literally everything? Bacon is not cheese or ranch dressing.

Anyway, I’d go with a regular Cheddar ButterBurger or one of their awesome shakes.

Dairy Queen

Oreo Blizzard

Man, this totally depends on my mood. Oreo Blizzards are great, but don’t sleep on a Peanut Butter Cup or Strawberry Cheesecake Blizzard.

Five Guys

French Fries

I’ve eaten Five Guys a few times and legitimately can’t recall what their fries tasted like. I’m going to go with “massive heartburn” as the one thing I do remember having.

Jimmy John’s

The Bootlegger Club

I have never tried this. I’m usually a Pepe or Turkey Tom guy.


Original Recipe thigh

Still gotta go with the Zinger Chicken Sandwich. Or the Famous Bowls. You can’t go wrong with chicken, though.


Bacon, egg & cheese biscuit

Look, if we’re talking breakfast food, it’s really hard to pass up the iconic Egg McMuffin. But those sausage burritos are pretty underrated, too. There’s a long, long list of stuff I like outside of breakfast, but my gut (literally) has me going with their French fries. Arguably the best in all of fast food.

Taco Bell

Soft taco

Boooooooooring. Out of all the weird stuff you can order at Taco Bell, they go with the one thing you get for free with a meal? Lame. The Crunchwrap Supreme is always tasty, but the Beefy 5-Layer Burrito might be the best bang-for-your-buck item on the menu. You can trust me. I've spent a lot of money at this place.

There you have it. You can check out the full list for more, or you can head to one of these places and see how this list stacks up for you. Why did I say I’m eating healthy again?
