    I think everybody has one of these, from fast food to a "sit down" place. What are some places you might be a little embarrassed to admit you enjoy?

    For me, they are as follows:

    Fast food: Long John Silvers (admittedly, I do try to avoid this one more as I get older), Taco John's (mmmmm, taco burgers)

    Sit down: Denny's (this was a go to for me and my buddies back in high school, now not so much)

    Looking forward to seeing folks' responses! Don't be shy!

    Church's Chicken. Their honey biscuits are so good and the chicken are moist.

    I still eat Subway once in a while, the meatball subs and tuna subs is what I usually get.

    I stay away from Long John Silvers after getting food poisoning as well as Cici's pizza

    I've tried pizza from Little Caesars, pizza hut and Domino's and I pick Domino's as the best but Eagle One is the best. It is what a pizza should taste like. LC just taste blan and PH bread is too sweet.

    Nothing super guilty pleasures. I rarely eat at fast food places. I rarely go to eat out by myself. If i do, it is typically Chinese or sushi. No guilty there. I may do pizza too. I work nights so i sleep all day and places are mostly closed when i am out late at night. But if i had to consider places as guilty i'd start with Taco Bell. There is so little i like there. I mainly do chicken soft taco and regular crunchy taco. About all i'd eat there. McDonalds i might grab a cheeseburger or two. Have not had LJS is a year or more. Too greasy and expensive.

    Once a month I use the app for a $5 Whopper meal.

    I don’t really feel “embarrassed” about eating anything unless I catch some old dude staring at me eating bc being a zaftig girl who loves food or whatevs is “forbidden”. It probably helps that I eat fast food never and fried food/rich meat next to never.

    But. Like. Weird foods I know others are going to look at me funny for eating?

    I’ll eat a lot of raw food because my immune system can literally kill a staph-infection (thats a fact not hyperbole) unassisted and I’m not rlly worried. I’ll also shamelessly pluck stuff off the floor if it’s a meal I’m enjoying and it falls.
    Go ahead. Shame me. Robot nerds.

    Full disclosure, I've eaten "just ok" french fries off the floorboard of my truck, because I refuse to let gravity push me around.

    We're meaning food that's bad for you? Meh. I never feel guilty about eating any of that.

    Now, an old guilty pleasure of mine was a local sit-down restaurant called The Brick House, which, when it first opened, had an evident dress code and hiring policy for the waitresses that involved low-cut tops and... healthy figures, let's say. And honestly I'd've eaten crap on a cracker for the pleasure of the eye candy in that place.

    But their policies changed, and now it's just another restaurant. Still good food, but nothing to look at anymore.

    hell yeah. You get me. Am I gonna not eat my prizes because greater causal forces decided they should kiss dirty floors? No. I have eaten tree branches, insects, and, once, a rock. I won’t be dissuaded.

    Yeah dude, Hungry Jack's is just Burger King in Australia. There was an old chain here already called The Burger King when BK were looking to expand into Aus and changed their name. The Burger King chain folded eventually but HJ didn't bother changing the name since they'd established their name by then.

    whataburger, long john silver's (which have all closed around me unfortunately) n raising cane's are the only things i can't really justify eating besides pure pleasure, n that's rare. even when i eat fast food it's never anything that's not relatively healthy or fits into my macros.

    ...but i lift, so as long as i stay away from sugar, excessive bread n fried shit i'm usually good. if i go to subway or a taco truck once a week it's no skin off my back.

    ask @AutobotAvalanche about eating raw chicken :)

    Yeah, I was wondering about that too.
    For me, a guilty pleasure restaurant is usually someplace I can't go to very often due to price.

    So by that definition...
    - Any Japanese hibachi place. Best one is Sake Steakhouse in Roswell, GA. Their fried rice is the greatest food ever conceived by humankind.
    - The Melting Pot. This is where my wife and I go on special occasions. Horribly expensive but SOOOO worth it.

    Also...Del Taco.
    There was a new one put in near our house maybe a year before we moved away, and it is soooo much better than Taco Bell. Unfortunately there are none where we live now :(
