What is your least favorite fast-food chain, and why? What fast-food chain is your favorite?
“My favorite least favorite food chain is definitely Burger Queen. I have celiac and they don’t provide any gluten-free options and they are just unhealthy. McDonald’s and Dairy Queen are the same but they both sell good gluten-free drinks and Ice cream. My favorite chain is Chipotle because they are so accommodating to my allergy.”
