Our local Jersey Mikes is not someplace I would send my worst enemy. Others elsewhere may be good, but this one, not so much.
We do have a Jimmy Johns nearby, and a Penn Station. The latter is great for boosting one's sodium level...

Wow, that is terrible. In 10 years of eating at 5 different Jersey Mike's here in the Dallas area, I can honestly say I have never had a sandwich that wasn't first rate, in a very clean and inviting atmosphere with great customer service.

Sounds like somebody needs to tell corporate that one of their franchisee's isn't with the program.

But I guess to each their own because I've only been to Jimmy John's once and wasn't impressed enough with the offering to go back.

If anyone ever drives through Dublin, NH, the general store just south of the Yankee Magazine offices makes great fresh deli sandwiches and is a great place to sit outside on a crisp autumn day and enjoy the view and the hearty fare.

My dad was from Clarion. We spent a lot of vacation time in northwestern Penna. Family has thinned out in that area and I haven't been through in about 10 years. Still might happen that I'll be back...

Both are good as is the local Jersey Mike's but I gotta a soft spot for a fried oyster po-boy (dressed of course) with a side of turtle soup from Hymel's in Convent, LA.

They have Take-Out but it ain't fast food... Its just good eats.

Show us pics of the rig going through the drive-thru and make us believers about fast food while underway.

I can see going by a locally-owne delicatessen the day before the trip to stock the 'fridge, but I have the idea that you all are planning your fuel stops around 24-hour convenience stores married to fast food franchises.

A bit more time in searching for state maps of "picnic areas" (and sat photos for those of us with extra-long rigs re ingress/egress) gives "fast food" with a great sandwich all the cachet it will ever need. Even when I am the one who makes the meal.

I shouldn't need to go into how dirty are those places mentioned above. The McDonalds at one of those near me (highly busy) only closes once every six months for a thorough cleaning. Maybe it's partly where I live, but vacation also means relief from rubbing shoulders with Menckens "great unwashed". Hand sanitizer just don't get it (and I ain't at all a clean freak, what-have-you). Let's not even start with GMO food products. Or reprehensible corporate politics + governmental favoritism. Less-than-a-living wage. And so forth.

Locally-owned or nothing. And figuring out where to park the rig to run n and pick up the order called in advance (as part of trip planning) for that picnic just down the road.

So, given that What-A-Burger started in CC do you give them a "locally-owned" exemption? IJS

Fast food should be an oxymoron. Unfortunately it seems to be a great American tradition which we also seem determined to export to all parts of the world that are not yet suffering from it. I guess it's revenge for the plague, yellow fever and malaria. If at all possible I avoid it completely.

Life is to short for fast food, and fast food helps make life even shorter.

If I had to do, I would select fish and chips and clam chowder at one of Ivar's outside fish bars.
