Fast food health - what do you order?

I admit it, I'm a calorie counter. is my best friend when i'm selecting a meal for eating out. One of the most pleasant surprises has been to find that many fast food restaurants offer genuinely healthy meal options. I work with teens so I end up at fast food restaurants a lot. I know it sounds crazy, but I'd just rather get my cals from a great homecooked meal or at a better restaurant, so, what do you do when you're in a hurry or stuck at McD's with the kids... etc... Here's some of my faves.

Burger King - Whopper, w/o mayo. This rings in right at 500 calories, and is enough to be a meal.

McDonald's - Salads with GRILLED not crispy (read fried)chicken breast and just a little dressing. Also, a small ice cream cone is just 150 cals.

Anywhere I can get a grilled chicken breast sandwich, sans mayo and/or sauces. Also, almost any place will load you up with veggies if you ask nicely.
