What's the alternative to McDonald's?

Dear McSpotlight,

I agree with your website and support why it was set up. However,
much as it pains me to say this, I can't blame the hordes of teenagers
who I see crowding into McD's on a Saturday. In the UK there's not a
lot of choice if you want something that (even in the vaguest terms)
resembles a meal.

McDonald's is relatively quick to serve you your meal, there's
no dress code, there are no bouncers, you can take your meal
outside and eat it in the sun. The fries are pre-salted, the
whole lot is full of tasty additives and flavourings. You know
exactly what you're getting, it's not a lottery like going into
an unknown eatery. Definitely more instant appeal than a Boots
or M&S sandwich.

What more could you ask for? (As long as you don't care about the
ethics of multinationalism, the quality of what you eat, and
being exploited by corporate greed. Most people don't.)

Sad but true,
