Wendys gave me food poisoning twice, so I'm not sure that speaks more to me being dumb or them serving crappy food.

Fast food - Taco Bell

Chain - .........Probably Old Chicago

Fast Food - Panda Express. I need to be careful not to have it every week at work now or I might get sick of it.

Chain - BWW. Old Chicago is also a great pick

Local - pizza place in town?

Chipotle is fast food? Do you need a drive up to be considered fast food?

So BWW pretty much sweeps it

I put it under chain. It's kinda like fast food but I feel like it's quality is higher than what I would consider fast food.

I have a few favorite restaurants that are smaller chains but not located where I live now so Bdubs it is. Always a fan of Granite City and Cheddars though

The OP's location in DSM is a lot less pizza focused than the others I've been to. Hopefully Ames is similar, probably visit there with my sister when I pass theough

Pizza Ranch isn't fast food! Just because there is a buffet doesn't make it fast food.

I had Steak n Shake for the first time ever today with Jocelyn/Crckrjack/Kath. I am a big fan. Most meals are under $5 or $4 (burger with fries, no drink). Evie ate free because it was a weekend and we spent $9. Great value and the food was tasty.
