What kinds of items would you expect to find at a fast food restaurant? Also, name three possible problems that could occur at such a restaurant in terms of service and food preparation.
"fill up on" = become full
"Hey, don't fill up on potato chips before lunch. You still need to eat your vegetables."
"whip up" = quickly prepare
"Could you whip up a simple salad for the barbecue?"
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Customer: Uh. I don't think so. I'd probably have heartburn for a week after downing that monster.
Server: Well. It's our house special this week, and it comes with fries, and a large specialty drink called "Everything-but-the-kitchen-sink."
Server: Well, it's a little mix of everything in a large cup: Pepsi, Sprite, Fanta Orange, and lemonade with crushed ice and a scoop of ice cream.
Customer: Ten ninety? For just a hamburger?! You've got to be kidding Server: Well, the one-pound super deluxe hamburger is nine dollars. Customer: Hey, I didn't order a one-pound burger. I just wanted a simple burger. That's all.
Customer: Okay, okay. I'll take the giant burger and a bottle of your spring water. The sandwich should feed me for a week.

Although there are many fastfood restaurants, their menus are not the same. In fact, the nutritional value of their items can be quite different. Use the Internet to compare the ingredients of hamburgers from two or more restaurants including (1) the serving size, (2) number of calories, and (3) total amount of fat, sodium, and carbohydrates. Finally, make a recommendation on which hamburger provides the best money and nutritional value.
