Real life is so disappointing. That is why I try not to watch porn.

Ach, these are not so good mainly because the "real life" examples are clearly from poor stores. We don't get places like Wendys or Taco Bell here, but some of the McDonalds stuff you see are really really poor. Infact, the Subway example is perhaps the worst sub i've ever seen. Every other sub i've seen has been more or less as good as it looks in images.

You've also got to remember that the photographers put all sorts of stuff on these foods to make them look more appealing.

hehe, that's pretty funny, here in SA most of our foods come out pretty close in fast food restaurants, but it never looks like the picture, I think another factor to take into account is the fact that all the ingredients on burgers are pushed to the one side in a photo so the customer can see exactly what it has inside, rather than the burger having to look like that ...

I'm sorry, SB, but I've had every single one of the food items pictured, and every single one of them has looked like, or worse than the real life picture in the links.

And they taste about as bad as they look, which is why I don't do fast food anymore, unless I'm famished and traveling away from home.

I'd rather eat dog food than a Big Mac

I had McDonald's last night. I had the double quarter pounder and it actually looked good and not smashed all to hell like they normally are, I was quite impressed.

I don't eat fast food very often but I didn't have much of a choice last night.

Must just be McDonalds here. I've had more good ones than bad ones.

I too don't have alot, but there is one like 2 minutes walk from my home and i'm seriously considering going there tonight. Hmm.

Well I have heard that the overseas franchises of fast food change are typically much better than here in the states. Most likely because the bulk of ours employ mostly high school kids that it's probably their first job and they are clueless, and run by managers that are only slightly older because they can't find a real job because they forgot to graduate high school.

I've eaten at McDonald's overseas and I have to admit it was much better and you could buy beer with your meal.
