Sometimes you buy the gas station tuna pasta with included tiny fork for $3.27. It's not because it's any healthier than Doritos but it seems like it's more civilized. Then you remember that it's not as you throw up into your mega gulp.
In order to be fast food satisfied on any kind of solo road trip you need to avoid all sense of shame. Go straight for the jugular and get what needs to be gotten. For example, ask for two tacos with your burger, and then ask for your burger to have a grilled cheese put on top of it and stuffed jalapenos put inside of it. Then ask for two types of fries or cheese, ranch, and bacon on your nuggets. No matter how much everyone want to follow this advice they never will. It takes the kind of cahones that only people who don't eat fast food have the potential of having.
