Seattle's Worst Dollar-Menu Items

Even Charlie won't finish Jack in the Box tacos..and he eats legitimate poop.
This week's Shit List could not be more literal. To say I'm not a fan of drive-through fare would be an understatement. In a town where you can indulge in Dick's or Zippy's burgers for a couple of bucks more, it seems silly to resort to the value menu for a deliciously greasy fix.

Let's just be honest: "Value" items are best reserved for the brokest of the broke or budget conscious bulimics on benders. In an effort to preserve the Weekly's, huh-hmmm, "journalist integrity" I took a bite of each of these items, just to see if they were as truly awful as they are rumored to be. For you dear readers I was willing to ingest food allegedly filled with foaming agents, meat by products and just a little binding rubber. I needn't have worried about their long term effects however, as 25 minutes after my nibble test I got so sick they came back up. The un-nibbled remainders I left to my pooch, who has as iron stomach. He didn't seem to mind them, but he also been known to chow down on other dog's feces on occasion.

So here's our salute to the lowest of the low--Five truly shitty items that prove you really do get what you pay for:

Jack in the Box- Taco Combo-2 for $.99 This ranks right up there on the list of worst foods I have ever eaten. A soggy shell,lined with processed cheese food, garnished with lettuce and taco sauce and filled with the scariest "ground beef" I've had the displeasure to taste. All around awful.

McDonalds' McChicken Sandwich- $1

We all know the origins of a Mickey D's "McChicken" patty are sketchy at best. So what do they do to jazz them up? Add gobs of mayo, flaccid lettuce and a plain white bun. An Amish prom would be more exciting.

KFC- BBQ Honey Chicken Snacker- $.89

We had a term in grade school which I believe is apropos here-- "A.B.C. food" as in Already. Been. Chewed. A Snacker tastes like regurgitated chicken given a bath in orange dye and corn syrup then slapped on a processed white bun from the Road to Diabetes Bakery.

Taco Bell- Bean Burrito- $1.19

The least offensive of the items sampled and probably the safest bet in an establishment that's had to defend whether or not what they can call what they serve "meat" . However, the bean burrito is an overall exercise in bland that will undoubtedly lead to bloating.

Wendy's- Cheesy Cheeseburger- $.99

A plain patty and bun with what seemed to be a slice of processed cheese on top that was covered with a heaping pump of gelatinous cheese sauce. An item truly as unappetizing to look at as it was to eat.
