Opt me out for future fast food meals, ugh! That could occur anywhere not just NY. The restaurants must not be sealing food up or disposing of it properly for the rats to be hanging around like that. Has nothing to do with dirt, just the smell of grease and food. Of course with the rats, and rat droppings, a potentially very serious health situation is an even bigger concern.

You are talking about NYC here. There are rats in every restaurant in these big dirty cities. Is the East River not near by? You can never get rid of the rats. I worked at a restaurant years ago and we would get paid $5.00 for every rat we killed. This was no fast food restaurant either it was a very busy upscale restaurant.

KFC doesn't fry chickens, they fry pigeons and Taco Bell uses kangaroo meat. Just food for thought !

Hey - leave those rats alone - they are not yet big enough to eat. Now we know the secret recipe: 2 parts chicken, 1 part rat turds.

The Taco Bell dog was just an overfed rat from their stores posing as a Chihuahua.

Who dropped the Chalupa?
