PHILADELPHIA - DECEMBER 7: A man enters a closed Taco Bell restaurant at Franklin Mills Mall December 7, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Taco Bell restaurants in the Philadelphia area have closed voluntarily for testing, after five people who contracted an E. coli illness, dined at a Taco Bell restaurant before falling ill.

Someone went through the menus at different fast food places, and figured out how to get as much food as possible for five bucks . . .

Someone figured out how to get the most food for $5 at a bunch of fast food places.  Like at Taco Bell, just order five things off the dollar menu.  And at Chipotle, order yourself a kid’s meal.

1.  Taco Bell.  Just order five things off their “Dollar Cravings” menu.  The biggest thing on there right now is the “Beefy Fritos Burrito.”  But if you get five, you’ll be too full.

2.  Chipotle.  The most food for $5 is the kid’s meal, but adults can get it too.  It comes with two soft tacos, chips, and a box of apple juice.

3.  Wendy’s.  Order a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, small fry, and a small chocolate Frosty.  It should come out to about $5 with tax.

4.  Chick-fil-A.  An original chicken sandwich or an eight-piece nuggets should be well under $5.  If you want to add fries, you can do the whole thing for about $5.50 plus tax.

5.  McDonald’s.  You could just go with five things from the dollar menu.  Or if you want to mix it up, a Sausage McMuffin, four-piece McNugget, snack-size McFlurry, and a small coke would run you about $5.50.

6.  Subway.  They have $6 footlongs now, and a few only cost $5.50.  But if you really want to stay under five bucks, go with any six-inch sub and load it up with veggies.

7.  Burger King.  You can get a double cheeseburger, a BK bacon burger, small fries, and a chocolate sundae for about $5.
