The Top Ten

Obviously McDonald's is the most unhealthy one. Their chicken nuggets are DISGUSTING. I HIGHLY recommend not to eat their chicken nuggets, my sister had some when she was younger and they made her barf. Also, their burgers are okay, but they keep getting thinner and thinner every year, but they are the same rip off price. Their fries only TASTE good when they are hot, eat them right away. But if you leave them about they taste gross and soggy. I also watched their french fries process once. GROSS. They will put one bucket of fries in a container and salt them. Okay. But then they put another bucket and add more salt, so you are adding more salt to the bottom batch. And the process goes on and on, that's so much salt. :/ one time I had their mango smoothie, and it tasted like butter :/

Now to their staff problems. My mom ordered 2 hamburgers only ketchup for me and guess what I got instead. 2 hamburgers with onions, pickles and mustard. How you screw up so bad? I know not. You have to repeat your order like 20 times before they get it. They usually miss one or 2 items of food if your order through the drive thru. Some of the restaurants are gross and dirty. We ordered a cake once because they had a month where they were selling mcains cake. We were halfway down the highway when we discovered we had paid for the cake but they hadn't given it to us. Be warned, they pull this kinda bs all the time, they try and rip you off or get you to pay extra. Another time we went to a McDonald's in an airport, and they screwed up counting the change. Turns out the employee forgot to give us back $20! Luckily my mom caught him in time, but we had to wait because their cash register only opens when people order so we had to wait for someone else to buy something.

Only items I like from there are their bacon breakfast sandwiches, fruit smoothies, and fries because they are addicting.


When I was 5, I got salmonella from there. IT WAS AWFUL (if you have had it and know how it feels) besides, hey just make everyone so fat and it is a gross place. I rarely go there anymore.
It always smell likes kids feet awful and gross, the burgers are thirsty and cold without the things that they offer or they have to much condiments like ketchup or mustard, no cheese, the meat looks a little bit greasy the lettuce it's old and the bread it's like old bad bread (except the ones with chicken), the coffee it's extremely hot, and I don't remember the year but my mom was eating a salad there and in the end of the salad in a lettuce appears a fly so gross! They don't check the food there or what... And I forget the bathrooms ar horrible smells the same like the entire place and they say that it's the best place for the kids have food HAHA are you kidding me the clown look at you like it's the house of the devil
[Newest]I love the cheeseburgers. And chips.

2Jack In The Box
The one restaurant that I have always hated was Jack In the Box. One of my friends who worked there told me about the things some of the employees would do to their food. They would spit, sneeze, and do other distgusting things to the food. Also, even if they did stop doing these things, Jack In the Box would still be very distgusting. There chicken fingers and french fries are good, but the burgers don't even taste like real meat. It taste like a scientist tried to make fake meat, then failed and threw it in a dumpster.
I am from Vancouver, Canada, and in Canada we don't have Jack in the Box. During our recent trip to Seattle, we thought we would try Jack in the Box! We were super excited. We tried it.. Were super disappointed. Okay, bad quality food, that is understandable. But the worst...? The next morning. We couldn't sleep all night, had the grossest, stinkiest gas, and could not get off the toilet the next day. Maybe it was just a shock to our bodies, but honestly, Vancouver has much better quality food. We were extremely disappointed. First and Last experience with JAck in the box. I'd rather eat mcdonalds everyday than try Jack in the Box again.
We just moved into California and thought we would try their breakfast. We ate their one time and my wife got salmonella. DO NOT EAT THEIR! I also once had to use the bathroom and it was the only place around so I went in there. I would not even sit on the toilet because it was so gross. If the bathrooms are this bad, just think what they put into their food.
[Newest]I love this place

The food don't taste good especially there chicken which is basically all they have! With no other meats to choose from what can you order if you hate chicken? There options are low. Do they even serve salad? Or wraps? Bojangles is the best for chicken if you ask me. They serve salad, wraps, chicken, and other meats I think. I ate there once and absolutely loved it. I hope I never have to eat KFC again. Every time I take a bite of KFC chicken I can taste the grease and fat caked on, and it makes me want to throw up. It wouldn't be so bad if I could order other stuff, but who wants to order mac and cheese or coleslaw for a whole meal. The buffet isn't so bad because they have beans and stuff but its pretty small. And still caked on grease. You only have like 7 foods to choose from which are all unhealthy. One time I ate corn and I tasted butter all over it. what? Corn is supposed to be somewhat healthy. To eat there fast I don't recommend going to the drive thru. They are also very slow. I had to wait forever to order my food there before.
KFC if you want more business get more options. Please! And make your food not as fat. I swear I taste more grease in KFC chicken then I have at Popeye's, Bojangles, or Chickfala.
Mcdonalds is bad but at least they serve salads and apple slices and way better chicken. And they are always quick. I only had a problem once there. That was the worker being stupid. Not mcDonalds fault. Anyways. KFC You suck.
Every time I eat there, I get spicy diarrhea, you also could get food poisoning from there, this is an awful fast food restaurant
Death in each box! Please just fry your own chicken instead of eating at this horrid place.
Dear KFC,

Your fried chicken very greasy, dry, favorless, terrible breading, and incredibly bland. KFC, you are a very dirty and dump place of area of the cleanliness area, you have soggy fries, and your service is pretty damn slow you take like 8 minutes. You are not better than any of the chicken chains like El Pollo Loco, Chick-Fil-A, home chicken, Popeyes, or anywhere else. Your chicken isn't any better than some of the other chains that they are not really basically sell chicken, they still have better chicken than you KFC. KFC, you always suck.

Closing, Me

If you think KFC is bad like This, Think what KFC treat or kill their chicken that any other chicken chain don't treat or kill their chicken like KFC. See Kentucky Fries Cruelty video how KFC kill and treat their chicken.
[Newest]This shouldn't be here. I love KFC!

4Taco Bell
I have no clue what you guys are talking about! Calling taco bell gross! I think taco bell is so bomb I could eat taco bell every day of the week. I know it is really bad for you but if you order a chicken burrito with extra sauce you wont regret it
Ya, I agree. I love their Doritos tacos, but some locations are kinda gross. Others, not so much though. And I love the AM crunch wrap


Taco Bell literally has grease dripping from the tacos... GROSS!
The reason people like taco bell is because it tastes so good, wait till you see the ingredients, finally the employees are disgusting.
[Newest]Has anyone not seen the picture of an employee licking the shells?

5Burger King
ALWAYS get your order wrong. One time, I ordered a plain hambuger with nothing on it, and they give me everything imaginable.
I got a whopper and when I started eating it there was hair in the meat patty it was disgusting. But I do like the BK stackers they taste pretty good I guess but its just the whoppers that are nasty.
The only thing good about Burger King is the breakfast, but that's it. Their french fries are not as good as in the 80's ^^ 90's, so much filth put in their burger and sandwiches, and low quality food, especially for fast food standards. If only Burger King could sell breakfast 24/7, they would perhaps be better, but till then I don't set foot in that darn place after 100 am when the breakfast is closed
[Newest]I used to eat there because of the macaroni and cheese, now they don't even have it and the rest of the food is terrible.

6Domino's Pizza
Crust tastes like cardboard and the sauce is bland, just sucks, they shouldn't have ever changed their food, it's just disgusting now!
They always treat female customers better than the male customers. I mean, really? Not fair. I ordered a margarita pizza and I saw them get dough that was in the oven for a long time and some 3-weeks past expiry cheese. Above that, they don't even listen to your order and hide the ingredients up their nostrils
Did you now they got bogeys in their pizza!
[Newest]This should be number 1. At least McDonalds food doesn't taste that gross. The pizza's crust tastes gross, and they put stinky cheese.

If you think its bad, you went to the wrong arbys! I love arbys its the best if you disagree, try their vanilla milkshakes! I had one today it was so thick my huge tonsils I couldn't feel them! You need to get the right arbys and see its good mood food! Seriously : )
I'm not thinking Arby's. It's Bad Mood Food. It's so bad South Park made fun of it.
It maybe freshly sliced but I don't think the processed meat is fresh. Hate there fries also.
[Newest]My friend said they have the BEST curly fries, is this true?

8White Castle
Gross. Not sure if it was even real food!
Couldn't finish my 4 tiny sliders cause it was so disgusting!
Tried it once. I had high expectations, isn't this what everyone says they crave, like Harold and Kumar? I was very let down. Over processed crap. They call that meat? Disappointed for sure.
Eat this stuff and you'll be sweating it for a week...
[Newest]Is it bad I never heard of or tried this place? Because I have never heard of it

9Pizza Hut
Salads went downhill, use to be lovely. Staff will not even get us what we ordered or they are just very slow.
Pizza Hut may not be the worst fast food pizza chain, But Pizza Hut now have terrible ratings and a bad reputation because Pizza Hut has a very terrible service and Pizza Hut takes 15-30 minutes for the dam pizza that is still fast food and for the pizza delivery about 30 minutes to 1 hour. Pizza Hut has pizzas And they tase pretty good for fast food pizza
A few years back I ordered a cheese pizza and they got to my house like 2 hours late. And when I bit into one of the slices, it tasted like the cardboard box it's self.

At least Hardees makes there burgers and sandwiches out of REAL food!
Their commercials are sexually wrong and are trying way too hard to get people to eat their burgers. Besides whatever happened to hot dogs like it was supposed to be like?
The employees spit on the burgers for that special Hardees taste.
[Newest]Have Roaches and rats when I worked there

The Contenders

11Long John Silver's
Nasty hush puppies don't understand how anyone can eat their
Half-cooked fish drenched in grease with lackluster sides. Mm...
Want your cholesterol to go up? Then slobber on the many fried fish at LJS. No seriously, their fish planks are awful.

12Dunkin Donuts
Is the #1worst place to work..

I myself was fired because I voiced my opinion in the
Following incident. I was cleaning floors when I overheard the franchise manor using the f word repeatedly when yelling loudly to the day shift girls.
I listened in and found out he was mad because the girls were using plastic baggies to put their tips in..
I, knowing the bags cost about $10.00 per 10,000
Offered to buy a case and the girls could use them..
Needless to say I was told to "f****** punch out and get out" which I did..

Remember these girls are paid rock bottom on the pay scale, worked 6 hours a day 6 days a week so they don't get over time or benefits, plus this helps to stop them from finding better jobs,
But, when you look at the wealth of these franchise owners, you can't believe they would keep their employees from having a half way decent life..

Some of these franchise owners are treating their help the exact same way people were being treated before the unions started. It seems that they can never make enough profit.. And they will never give credit to those who are working their asses off smiling trying to please the customer.. Some stores will let the accept tips most don't.. They even go up on the prices if they see tipping going up.. CAN YOU IMAGINE. And the labor boards are useless, after all they have good jobs
I had a terrible experience there. We went in the drive through. My mom asked for a simple chocolate donut. They were out. Asked for a glazed donut. They were out. She asked what flavors they had and they had only 3 donuts and 2 flavors left and no one in their right mind would try, so we just ditched the place. I'm never going there again.
From personal experience, I do not suggest working here. Unless you want to be disrespected. (Long story short).
[Newest]The customers are so rude!

Eating at checker ishealthy at all the place is small for one the employees can't move around I love their fryes but they recook them at order I know it is unclean I have ordered I chicken sandwich and it was cold in the middle nasty

14Tim Hortons
It is got to be #1 on a new list!

I just woke up to a bag of Wendy's for dinner. I hadn't had Wendy's in months and I was not really wanting it considering I recently decided I'm done with places like these for a very long time if not forever. My unbiased verdict: The Frosty was good as always, the burgers tasted like they had mustard or pickles on them, they tasted more like a meat sandwich than a burger, the cheese was awful tasting, the meat had no taste and felt gross to bite into, I took one look at the spicy chicken nuggets and knew I'd hate them, they tasted like processed chicken in a fake breading of spices that don't bother even the most sensitive of eaters, the meal in all was just enough to make me feel like I am going to barf. I regret even falling asleep now, for had I not I could've prevented this horrific event from taking place.
Geez... How much thinner does the chicken in the chicken sandwich really need to be be? I used to LOVE their chicken sandwiches when I was a kid. They were hands-down the best around--very thick, juicy and succulent. Over the years, they have made them thinner and thinner. They are now basically just crumbs of batter held together with a thin layer of 'pretend' meat. It's pretty disgusting. Wendy's ignorance of quality has actually helped to give rise to Chick-fil-A as a viable competitor in the industry. Chick-fil-A used to only be in shopping malls; now they are everywhere. I've never thought there chicken sandwiches were as good as Wendy's used to be, but they are much better than the crap Wendy's is trying to sell now.
I went there and there was a bug on my salad. Not to mention, the dressing was horrific and the salad literally made me barf. The only good thing there are the frosties and apparently the burgers are a disgrace. They could ask me to act for a commercial to promote Wendy's and I wouldn't even do it for a million dollars. It's truly repugnant.
[Newest]THIS PLACE is a disgrace to humanity

I think blimpie has a lot of calories I heard that it is not healthy than subway or quiznos veggietarin is 890 calories gross

17Little Chef
All it is is fried rubber made to look like food. It's inedible and probably toxic; do NOT eat it!
Did you mean Little Robber?


18Steak 'n Shake
One time I went there and I wanted cheese on burger but it was an extra 35cents! For cheese! I was so mad but it was good anyways. It just doesn't make sense that they would be doing this.
Worst food I have ever tasted in my life
So bland. Always looks like a dump and the foods the same
[Newest]I don't know why this is on the list. It's my favourite burger place.

19El Pollo Loco
Who put this place here, they have the best and tasty chicken, and I love there rice. Especially I love the desserts. Best Mexican restaurant ever!
Yucky greasy and expensive... Oh, and bland
El Pollo Loco is horrible. Why get their chicken when everyone else does it better.

20Five Guys Burgers and Fries
Are you serious? Five guys is the only restaurant that has legit never gotten my order wrong. I go to the one near my house with my friends all the time, and we never get wrong orders. The burgers taste awesome, and its real meat, because they grill it right in front of you, so its legit. Five Gus shouldn't even be on this list.
Are you kidding me! Five guys one of the top 20s on TheTopTens and It's one of the greatest fast food restaurants of all time? Their fires are deliciously and one of the best tasting fast food fries that I tried. The burger are like fast food heaven that It's made out of real meat. They never got my order wrong at five guys and their service is good. The only bad reasons that I hate five guys that their food is kind of expensive for fast and it's unhealthy but pretty good food. Five Guys Burger and Fries shouldn't be on this list.
I got a Bacon Cheeseburger with no tomatoes, lettuce and Onions. When I got it I took a bite it tasted decent. But the worst had yet to come. I got done and then I went to Coldstone Ice Cream for dessert. When I got home I puked because I looked in the toilet and there was lettuce, tomatoes and onions in it. And I was elergic to those things. The only good thing about this place is the patties and the pickles and the fries. And the people at that place are so grouchy and BORING! And the food looks bland.
