today i went to mcdonald's for the first time in months and got a quarter pounder with cheese without the bun (yeah yeah dairy isn't very paleo) and some fries. it made me a little gassy but i forgot how sinfully delicious fast food can be.

i sometimes get the bowl without rice at chipotle. that's pretty good

Yes! Some of the stores seem surprised by the request but will still do it, others are used to it. In N Out Burger will also do a lettuce wrap ("protein style") but I suspect their meat isn't as good as 5 Guys.

Agreed. Sorry but fast food is just the antithesis of the paleo movement. I may get pounded for this but my take is that it's all about striving for whole healthy foods prepared in the freshest possible ways :) at home in a happy setting (that's my opinion)

Five Guys was nice enough to wrap my bacon burger up in a ton of lettuce for me. It was good solid lettuce too, not the flimsy chopped up stuff at McDonald's. Nice fresh toppings all around, actually. Five Guys gets my vote for most paleo fast food for burgers (although the peanuts they have out are a little too tempting, and they do fry everything in peanut oil).

We also like sushi and eat it weekly, but only on workout days. You can get sashimi too, that is really good.This is what we consider fast food.

i wish it was just meat, and just potatoes. we can start with the rancid soybean oil, and it just gets uglier from there.

The rotisserie chickens from the grocery store have become my go-to fast food. Not perfect, but better and just as "fast" as actual fast food joints.

Yes, chipotle, I do steak, double steak, salsa, guac and SOMETIMES sour cream.

Otherwise, I'd go for a better place than McD's for a burger, if you can. Restaurant, probably

Another Chipotle fan here. If I must get a quick burger on the road, I prefer Five Guys when I can find it. Sometimes I get a protein plate from Starbucks.

Hoping Elevation Burger (organic, grass-fed) will keep expanding in my state -- they're still a little too far away. But at least 4 local restaurants now have grass-fed steaks and/or burgers, which is nice, although they're all expensive.

i don't think any fast food places have paleo options since i do grass fed, organic only. i would never risk it with conventional meat.

El Pollo Loco's chicken, sans tortillas. Sometimes I will get the combo with their veggies. They used to be frozen, but they now use fresh and are steamed crisp-tender.

Chipotle, FTW. I also like Jason's Deli, very good salad bar and they use organic ingredients.
