|Hey now I think Mcdonalds has some of the best fries I have ever tasted|
No, their fries do not taste good. Their fries are GMO potatoes, cheap grease, and salt.
If you want good fries, try making your own some time. Get organic potatoes (I'm not an organic nut... but potatoes are one of the few things where there's a SIGNIFICANT taste improvement), peel, boil for a bit (prevents them from getting soggy), then fry in peanut oil. Salt+pepper to taste.
cheaper, and tastes good.
Peanut oil can get spendy, but you can reuse it.
|and I don't really mind their burgers either|
Their burger patties are frozen and pumped with wood pulp for filler. I maintain that the only reason you don't mind them (or their God awful fries) is because you're used to them.
|I have ate at some pretty fancy restaurant's in my lifetime ;p|
"Fancy" and "expensive" don't necessarily mean "good". In general any restaurant is going to fall short of actual home cooking... mainly because restaurants typically have to buy frozen products in bulk so the food you're getting is not exactly fresh.
Seriously.... give fastfood up for a year or two. It's like TV.... you don't realize just how shitty it is until you stop. But once you're away from it, your life is better and you never want to go back.
And when you shop for food for your home... stay out of the frozen/processed sections. Frozen hamburger patties are convenient, but not enough to make up for their flavorless taste.
90% of your food shopping should be from produce/deli/bakery sections.
