Why do you eat fast food? Is it because it's cheap? Convenient? What makes you go there to eat?

Because its menu is not included in my home daily food menu. So it is better to have that kind of foods at their outlet as I'm paying not only for food's price but the prestige environment.

Because it is cheap, and it is fast... most of the time I go to eat by myself, so do not like to wait there a long time in a regular restaurant by myself... so I better go and get something fast

My wife and my son are fond of food at fastfood outlets. For the past 15 years or so, I have been eating out and I am fed up mainly because the food is not very hiegine and I develop a stomach problem.There is also a disease called amiobiosis (slightly contageious) resultant of eating hotel food. So I love to have home made food.

I love to make home made food too, but sometimes, in my case, there's just not enough time for me to make a meal, so I grab what's convenient. Thank you for responding to my discussion.

My wife has gone to her parents' house along with my son, so I am forced to prepare something for myself and I have a blind boy to whom I have to prepare something for breakfast (he manages lunch at his work place). But my brother's wife prepares something and sends it through my brother who also has some business in the same premises I have. So it is managed by avoiding eating out.

I think my answer will be very funny. I like eating the fast food because I think they are delicious:) I enjoy eating the french fries and burgers. The spicy chicken wings are yummy, too.

I eat fast food not because it is cheap, but because it is convenient. I used to eat fast food a lot, but I prefer to have a dish with rice in a restaurant if I am not in a hurry and can have enough time to enjoy my meal.

That's pretty much why I do it. Thank you for responding to my discussion.

Because as much as I love cooking, sometimes it's nice not to. I'm not one of those people who eats fast food 3 or 4 times a week, heck I don't eat it once a week. My average is about once a month or once every other month. It's filling, it tastes good and it's cheaper than going to a sit-down restaurant. I go to whatever place I'm in the mood for. I don't really have a standard place I visit.

Yeah especially when it's so hot outside and you just got home from a long day of working, going out to eat or going to a fast food place is definitely easier. Thank you for responding to my discussion.

We generally go out to eat when we r kinda bored of eating home food, and also when mom is not in a position to cook food at home.. We go out for meals atleast 2 times in a week, and that's pretty normal...

I travel all the time for work so fast food is frequently the choice for convenience. Seems I'm always in a hurry and need to just grab a bite on the way. Sadly, that leads to fast food and unhealthy eating much of the time. It is hard to make the healthy choices at these places also! When you are hungry, it is usually not the healthy foods that sound good! : )

It is convenient to just drive up to the drive-thru while on business and grabbing something quick. Thank you for responding to my discussion.

I eat in a fast food because it's cheap, compare to other fastfood stores, its convenient since I pass to their store's every day. The stores are clean, we can make sure that the food they serve are clean as well. And we can make sure that the food they serve are fresh :)

It's convenient & it tastes good. Also its addicting, once you start eating fast food more regularly, you crave it more.

I go eat there when I'm in a really big hurry.... If I stopped by the store I could grab something from the deli just as quickly but then I'd have to get out of my car....
