So wrong but so right.
In today’s society of instant satisfaction in meals, the individual has plenty of choices in bargains for fast food. Sometimes he/she may not feel like standing over a hot stove, or waiting for that pot roast in the oven. Try checking out our top 10 cheap and healthy foods for some inspiration.
Sticking a hot pocket in the microwave may even be a chore for some (this has to be one lazy individual, but I’ll let it go for now). Anyway, the easiest place to find while driving on any interstate across the nation is a fast food chain. Fast food is obviously not good for you as we highlighted in our top 10 foods that make you fat.
The good news about most fast food franchises is the fact that bargain deals usually deluge most menus. Here are the top 10 best bargain fast food meals.
1. The 99-cent menu at Wendy’s.
The bowl of chili, chicken nuggets, small French fries, baked potato, chocolate Frosty, bacon cheeseburger, and more.

2. Arby’s 5 roast beef sandwiches for 5 dollars.
This is even a good deal for the connoisseur of Baked Alaska and Château Briand (although you may not want to let the other yuppie snobs know you actually eat at Arby’s).
3. The Filet O’ Fish at McDonald’s.
It is a good choice if not compared to Baked Alaska.

4. Sandwiches at Subway.
They are actually worth the customer’s time if he/she doesn’t mind the Grand Inquisition. “Swiss or Provolone…olives…tomatoes…six or twelve inch? Enough with the inquiries, already…I’ll have a Number Three twelve inch—light on the onions and hold the questions.
5. The Tostadillo at Taco Bell
It is quite different from the Burritillo. The Tostadillo has a shell, shredded cheese, refried beans, onions and tomatoes. It costs about 79 cents for the small and $1.39 for the deluxe.
6. The Double Cheeseburger at White Castle.
It is good for the consumer that wants to not only double the beef and cheese, but also double the onions and pickles as well. At $1.20, you can’t have just one of these belly bombers.

7. The Original Whopper at Burger King.
This burger can be purchased for less than $1.20 at select locations, for the great taste of a sandwich with questionable nutrition value.

8. The value menu at McDonald’s.
It seemed to cost just as much to eat a meal of a Big Mac, French fries and refreshing soft drink, as it does today with the dollar menu. I even remember the commercial from the early to mid-1980s: “Big Mac, Filet O’ Fish, Quarter Pounder, French Fries, Icy Coke, Milk Shake, Sundae and Apple Pie.”
9. Jack-in-the-Box has a new value meal.
“The Big Deal” includes two beef tacos, a chicken sandwich, and 20-ounce soft drink all for $2.59. The calories clock in at 892 calories with 37 g. of fat (11 g. saturated fat)—not to mention 1274 mg. sodium, 58 g. of sugar and 114 g. of carbohydrates. Arteries…don’t fail me now!Checkers (or Rally’s in some regions) is renowned for its burgers, fries and colas.

10. At Checkers, the Champ Burger with Cheese.
This mega calorie burger is only $3 for two. But that’s not all—you get to decide how you want the burger with your own cheese (Pepper jack, Cheddar or American).
