$5 Meal Deals

Bonus points if they come in a box

So many places offer this deal, DQ, Hardee's, Taco Bell, KFC

I've recently had Hardee's (4 different options) and TB. Hardee's #4 is the clear winner so far for amount of food.

Next week I'll try KFC and report back. I don't think there is a DQ close by, but I know those are good as well.

I haven't had fast food for over four years. Closest thing to fast food I get is chipotle like once a year.

Good call on Popeye's, but it seems like they only run for a week. I go back later and they no longer have the promotion.

If you get the DQ 5 buck lunch, make sure to pay the extra dollar to get a blizzard for your dessert!

The only one I've had is Taco Bell and that was probably 2 years ago. They change them often, but it was always a good deal for how much food you get. The commercials for all of these deals always make me crave them.

I assume wags is more influenced by commercials since he works in marketing.

New KFC box is $5, but $6 with drink. I got the Nashville Hot tender box and it was delicious. Would have been too hot on it's own for me, but with ranch it was fine. Will get again.

I'm dumb and asked at the drive through how spicy it was. "ummm...it depends?".
