Is it better to have been fired, or not worked there at all?

I'm going job hunting next week. I'll be applying for retail, restaurant, and fast food positions. My experience consists of one year at McDonalds (fired), and a one month temp job. In my last job search, I noticed that my sole call-back was from when I left McDonalds entirely off the application. However, I wasn't hired due to lack of experience. Would it be better to leave McDonalds on my applications and take the risk, or take the risk of not being hired due to lack of experience? [more inside]
