I'm poor so I go to McDonald's often and get 1 dollar double cheeseburgers with no cheese and just eat the meat without the bun. They seem to claim that their sandwiches are all made with 100% all beef patties. I also heard that they have gone all white meat with chicken nuggets but I try t stay paleo so I avoid those.
Carl's Junior however I am skeptical of because their patties taste mealy, like there's some soy or corn starch or something in there.
An employee at Jack N The Box told me once that they use all beef. Not sure if I trust them.
In California they have In And Out Burger which I am almost sure is all beef but they always have lines and long waits.
Anybody else able to report on good fast food sources of cheap protein? I have never been able to find info on just what types of fillers are put in beef, but I know some places doctor up their products to save money.

Anytime you want the ingredients for fast food, go to their site, go to the nutrition page and find the allergy information link
