because some people will always have the reasoning of, "it's only a dollar?! I'll buy five!"

you don't wanna know...

The reason restaraunts can sell burgers for a dollar and still make a profit is because of fillers, which is "meat product". Pretty much, since beef can get costy, they just buy a little bit of actual meat and then use fillers, which are the "other parts", such as organs and more cartliage-filled pieces of muscle. Mostly organs, though.Oh, and if they claim it's "100% beef", it still is cow, it's just different parts. If they don't claim it's 100% beef, then it gets scary thinking about it.

Because people love fast food, fast food places can afford to sell individual menu items for $1. Learn some economics.
