LOL Darling Husband and I take road trips to “visit family” but it’s really only for the good southern food. 7 hours.

@EverAfterBegins: Chik-Fil-A was a huge obsession with friends in college.  Several of my friends used to camp out before a restaurant opened because you got 100 free meals if you were one of the first 100 customers.

I rarely eat fast food, unless I’m traveling, but then it’s if I bump into it and I’m hungry.  Maybe a half hour to Panera if that counts.

I don’t know if we’ve ever traveled just for food, but any time we go to St. Louis we always try to stop by Popeye’s chicken!

If I’m within a 10-12 mile radius from a King Taco- I’m there! Ten mile radius doesn’t sound that far but in the general LA area, it can be 10 minutes or 1 hour.

If I had the time and money, I would drive the 5 to 6 hours to Texas for some whataburger on a regular basis. Whataburger is the greatest fast food hamburger that you will ever eat. The end.

It’s not techinically fast food, but Redamack’s in New Buffalo, MI is the farthest I have traveled for a cheeseburger. I decided at 5pm one day that I wanted it for dinner, packed two friends in the car and made the two hour drive to get there from Chicago.

Not far for fast food. Maybe 20 min tops. I did drive like 45 minutes for a burrito from On The Border once though. But I really had nothing else going on that day. lol

I’ve driven 30 minutes (in high school) and it was also for Chick-fil-A.  Haha!

@EverAfterBegins: and @Miss Sorbet: Chickfila is so worth the drive! Normally I wouldn’t drive more than a couple miles for fast food but if I hadn’t had chickfila in awhile I would definitely make the drive!

Chick-fil-a, Wendys, Mickey D’s, BK, Long John Silvers, Pizzahut, Arbys, Taco Bell, Subway and Chipotle are ALL with-in a 5 minute drive from where I live. So, I’d say the furthest I’d ever drive for FF is….5 minutes. I could definitely see myself doing a roadtrip for chick-fil-a tho if I had to…that stuff is delicious! And for anyone who feels ambitious and doesn’t want to do the drive, I have a really good copycat chicken sandwich recipe that tastes just like chick-fil-a’s. Right down to the pickles.

Darling Husband and I once drove 45 minutes to go to Sonic. Because holy crap I wanted a cherry limeade in the worst sort of way.

I’ve never been to a Chick-fil-a, but it sounds like they have a powerful draw! LOL.

Our closest fast food growing up was 25 minutes away, but sometimes you just needed a Taco John’s or A&W fix. I think the furthest drive was about an hour long trip to White Castle, but that was only because I was visiting a good friend in the Chicago area and he insisted I tried a slider. *shudder*

eta- this thread is making me seriously consider hopping in the car to get some FF. LOL.

I’ve been tempted to drive an hour away for Chick-Fil-A!
