Fast Food restaurants eaten at - McDonalds twice because there was nothing else or nothing open when we were hungry. We tried to avoid them like the plague. We mostly ate at local cafés/diners in small towns for breakfast and dinner. We met some pretty interesting people. What is it with ketchup or Tabasco in the West? I like hot sauce, don’t get me wrong, but on your eggs??? We just snacked on granola bars and stuff for lunch.
