Arlington Loves Fast Food Joints

Besides two cool stadiums and one pretty cool bar (Cave’s Lounge), Arlington is apparently also known for its addiction to fast-food joints. That’s according to Men’s Health‘s September issue, which named Arlington the No. 1 “Urban Waistland” in the country. It’s supposedly a measure of how addicted the residents are to fast food. For some reason, I can’t find the full list on the site, but Arlington is No. 1, Fort Worth No. 17, and Dallas No. 37. The mag’s methodology is pretty random (number of McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger Kings, and Taco Bells per capita + percentage of folks who say they eat fast food + obesity statistics), but, hey, it made me crave an Angry Triple Whopper (1360 calories, thank you), so who am I to complain?
