Fast food is poison for some people with certain immune suppressed diseases. I can't eat fast food (I have MS). If you stop eating fast food you will find you will feel “sick” after eating a FF meal… I used to LOVE a Mc D's cheeseburger and then I ate one a year after watching “Super Size Me”!! That documentary is enough to make you NEVER want to eat ff again.
Being budget conscious we go to a nicer restaurant and eat two appetizers and share OR we eat a few side dishes and tip well while drinking water. The soda is what really kills our bill (LOL).

I don't mind spending $100 eating out with friends and hubby. We do it
every few months at a nice steak house or a 5-star seafood restaurant.
Everyone has priorities. And we don't do it only for the food, we also
do it as a social outlet. We are budget conscience, but also make a
fine living. We don't put it on credit cards and we don't rack up debt
to do it. I also don't like eating fast food much, so eating out with
the family generally runs us about $40 and we do it every weekend.
I never think about how I could make it cheaper at home because that
is sooo not the point.
Just another view.
