Wgen you go out to a fast food place like KFC do you prefer to take your meal with you or eat it there ?
I prefer to take it with me because I can't stand eating inside one.
reason for topic: thought it be a fun topic to do

Depends.. I'm not at fast food places often.. (once every 4 months maybe?) and I rather go to a restaurant once or twice a month but either is fine. If it is cold and rainy I will get pizza ordered in rather than walking out, for example, but if I am out withfriends obviously we will eat in.

Depends on what I'm getting. If it's a full meal, I usually eat inside. If it's just a milkshake or something to treat myself, I get it to go. I don't typically go to the national chains, though - we have a fast food pizza chain and a good burger/frozen custard chain (Culver's, which is becoming national, but is based here) here in Wisconsin.

Really depends on my mood with being around other people. I joke around with my friend all the time, because usually if I'm going out to eat fast food it's with her, and tell her that I'm not up to being friendly and socializing is just not in the cards when I would prefer to just do drive thru. I think I usually end up doing drive thru a lot more, though, simply because I also tend to get food before school and don't have enough time to eat it and wait for it to get prepared. They take a lot longer to prepare your meal if you aren't in drive thru.

I prefer the drive thru most of the time, because I am always on the go. But I do when I get the chance like to sit down inside.

I eat in the restaurant most of the time, but I take out the food if I don't have enough time to dine in.

If I'm driving, I have to eat in, because I cannot multitask when I'm driving. :P Probably gonna save my life some time hahaha. Most other people I'm usually in the car with end up eating and driving, probably not the safest thing, but they handle it fine. So we're usually going through the drive thru.

I always take home, more privacy for me, plus I can eat it while doing what ever I want (play games, watch movies, or watch Pokemon), plus my cats also get into the snack as well.

I prefer taking the stuff back home as at least in my house I don't have to worry about noisy as hell strangers preaching their life stories to their homegirl of the week over the phone.

Delivery! But, if they dont have delivery and I already have my pants on its nearly always take out. The insides of fast food restaurants arent very nice anyway. My Mom and sisters always want to eat inside for god knows why.

I don't generally "go out" for fast food. Actual sit-down restaurants, yes. Fast food, no.
I do enjoy fast food, but I indulge more out of necessity. When I'm already out or if I'm in a hurry. Something you pick up at lunch or dinner when you're between destinations or need to save time at home (go pick it up for the family, for example, while they take care of whatever).
So, I take fast food home

I rarely sit down in a fast food restaurant. At least here, the fast food restaurants have a lousy atmosphere. I'd rather just eat in the car or eat when I get home.

Tch. I never eat the food I get in the restaurant...AT the restaurant. LOL
I'm only in there to get it, so I can split it! (Da scene, dat is)
But seriously, I haven't eaten in a restaurant since I was really young...Nowadayz, I just go there, order my food and leave...

I don't normally go for 'fast food' when out and about. But if and when I do, I normally like to sit down and enjoy it.

Take in, if I have a camera. I like Tweeting it so people will see I'm awesome because I'm eating at a restaurant, while they're at home eating cereal in front of the computer. But if I don't have a camera, I'm going with take out, so I can take a picture of it at home. I'm awesome like that.

Sometimes I prefer to eat inside, and sometimes I prefer to eat it in the car or enjoy it at home. I think one of the major factors that influences my decision is the weather. If it's a lovely day I'd probably eat it outside at a local park or inside the fast food shop. If it's cold, wet and rainy then I'd definitely prefer to enjoy my meal at home in front of the fire where I'm warm and comfortable. It also depends on my mood.

Usually it's drive-through or to go, because I'm getting it before going somewhere or on the way home. I don't mind eating in, it's just rare that I have the time for it.

well right now i'm in McDonalds and have been sitting here for a while now. But usually I just get take out unless I'm with friends then it depends on the situation and what we're doing. If it's out intention on eating fast food then well just sit down and chill for a bit. But if we're grabbing something on the way to a place then we will do take out.

Eat in if I'm with friends or I have my laptop with me and they have free wi-fi. Or if everyone else is in Wal-Mart or some other store where I don't need to buy anything.
But if there's no wi-fi, and I'm by myself, and if I don't need to kill time while the rest of the family is shopping elsewhere, there's really no point in sitting in the restaurant.
Casual dining restaurants are another matter, and I'll sit down and eat my meal there more often than not.

If I'm with my family or friends I will sit down and eat my foods but I've I'm alone I will go home and eat.

I'd eat in rather than take out, cos I'm worried my hot food might go cold if I have to walk too long to get to an outdoor eating spot. Also, the indoors is better cos I like eating in a clean environment.
Also, I'm scared of the rain so it's better I eat inside.

I never go to the drive-thru because I find those really awkward and I don't enjoy the experience. So I always park and go in, and I prefer to eat there because taking it home means it's gone cold by the time I get there and eating in the car is not an option because YOU SHOULD NEVER DO ANYTHING WHILE YOU'RE DRIVING, TAKE NOTE KIDS. DON'T DO ANYTHING ELSE WHILE YOU DRIVE. GOT IT?
So yeah, I eat in :)
October 15th, 2012, 01:52 PM
It really depends on how hungry I am and what else I've got on the go at the time. If I've got to go to work or am out doing shopping or whatever, I'll just go into a fast food place and eat it there. If I'm just lazy and don't feel like cooking, I might head over to pick up something and bring it home, or just order in.

The only fast food joint I don't mind eating in at is Subway, but other than that it's always drive thru.
October 15th, 2012, 02:21 PM
Unless I'm in a huge hurry (which I'm usually not), I prefer eating inside. I already go inside to order my food, since I really, really hate using the drive-thru...I figure staying inside for a few extra minutes to eat isn't all that bad.
(Plus it means I have to wait less time to start eating my food, especially for those places that aren't a two-minute drive from my apartment, as I don't like eating in the car even if I'm not the one driving.)

It all depends on a) how busy I am and b) if there are any seats in the joint. If I'm ridiculously busy, then I'll probably just take the food with me and eat at my desk at work, irrespective of how many seats there are. If I'm not busy, I'll eat in if there are seats available, and take out if there are not. Simple, really! :D

Eating at home is boring imo! xD So I always have time to eat at the restaurant. I do drive thru if I'm SUPER DUPER in a hurry, which is rare in my case...unless it's pizza.
October 22nd, 2012, 08:05 AM
If I'm in a hurry, I normally take out/drive thru though I like being able to sit-in more. I'm usually with my family or friends when I go out to eat, so I like sitting down and being able to have conversation.

I honestly dont go out much. I enjoy it but it's expensive so I really can't. Home cooked meals are perfectly fine, can be healthier and are delicious. Plus then I can eat the leftovers for an easy lunch or another dinner( though I do this with resteraunt food as well)
