Best Fast Food Restaurants

The Top Ten

1 McDonald's McDonald's McDonald's is an American fast food company, founded in 1940 as a restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald, in San Bernardino, California, United States. They rechristened their business as a hamburger stand. The first time a McDonald's franchise used the Golden Arches logo was in 1953 at ...read more.

How the hell is McDonald's even on number 1 while Burger King number 3?! Man, have you ever tasted the chicken/beef burgers of Burger King's?! If so, I bet the arrangement of this list would totally change. The McDonald's idea itself just gives you a bad taste in the mouth, it just forces you to forget experience tasting it. The first time I remember ordering a meal of McDonald's left me a bad memory, ending up vomiting my way home (literally). Fortunately, I found myself not puking the second time I ate a meal of it, though I just realized that the taste of a meal wasn't exactly the main ingredient to a person's enjoyment but the toy ones...kids just seem to eat those highly-sugared meals to get those toys. The whole thing might be obvious, thinking that it might be deceiving. Dear taster, if you want the real taste of beef patties dipped in a variable types of sauces with some vegetable and bacon slices...I suggest you to leave this trash restaurant and go to a better one, Burger ...more - xXLittleQueensXx

I really have no idea why this #1 McDonalds chicken is so bad and I cannot eat it without something to add to it. The chicken might be real but it looks and taste fake. Their fries usually are like burnt. Chick fil should be #1 because you can tell their chicken is real, they have good sauce and fries. Although their are many things wrong with McDonalds I still eat it, it is very classic and it might always be really popular

The good thing is that the French fries in McDonalds are good and that they put little toys in kiddie meals but the bad thing is the chicken Mcnuggets taste HORRIBLE! Burger King has much more fair deals like the 2 for 5 and they have chicken fries back in Burger King and they were the most tastiest chicken fries I have ever tasted. The dollar menu is sucks because they should know that they really don't make their burgers good somehow. Another thing is that the chicken select tenders they sell there, that idea was first made by Burger King's tenders and they copied that idea! Whoever likes McDonalds is sucks!

Their fries are the best but the unhealthiest! 🍟! - AnnaRoblox

How the hell is McDonalds above Subway? Subway is delicious AND HEALTHY FOR YOU! I love Subway. The food is always fresh, their cookies are delicous, their fountain drinks are tasty. And come on people, you get to pretty much make your own meal. You decide what goes on your sub, type of bread, what more could you ask for? Even if your not a fan of vegetables, you can choose your favorite veggies, meat, cheese, bread, and make something you truly like. This place is 1000 times better than McDonalds. Mcdonalds just clogs your arteries. - dragonfly99

I love the cookies, I love the subs. I love Subway. It's the bomb! Sometimes I just go to Subway to get me a delicious Cookie :) They are so good and so delicious. Dang, just writing about this makes me want to go to Subway now

I love Subway. You can get whatever you want and with about over 9 million combinations of sandwiches, you will never get bored with the food. Plus, they have delicious cookies, chips, pretzels, ICEEs, and pizza! The service is good, and there's one about everywhere. And it's HEALTHY. Vote for Subway! - bubbles1111

McDonald's sucks. it is greasy trash. Subway is healthy and you make your own ' sub. Subway rocks. McDonald's just gives you ebola. -PopplioLover05

Ten years ago they were pretty good. Then 3 years ago they were terrible and disgusting. Now they got terrible ratings and a bad reputation. Now they went fresh, and they truly are. You know how you look at the commercials and it looks so good yet when you get it its slop. Well wendys has improved 101 percent and what you see on the commercial is what it looks like. It drips with juice. Not grease, juice and is made when you order. They have improved and I promise they have. I got the 1/2 pound hamburger because I'm in good health and the lettuce was taken strait off a head of lettuce, fresh tomatoes and I don't know about the cheese but the meat was steaming and juicy and not at all greasy. I felt just fine for the rest of the day. The fries are not that great because they were not soaked in grease for instance COUGH MC COUGH COUGH DONALDS COUGH. Oh sorry had something in my throat. Anyways the fries were made when ordered and I could tell because they were hot and had the outside ...more

Wendy's has the best fast food burgers by far! Baconators are the greatest sandwich ever created! Wendy's by far has the best chicken products of any fast food chain as well. Their wraps are the best and their salads are the best too.

I used to work at several Wendy's, in about a 12 year span. They have no microwaves to reheat cold food. No heat lamps to keep your burger warm until it's ordered. When you order a burger it comes straight off the grill and on to your tray or bag. Freshest toppings around!

They send mean tweets. - lovefrombadlands

Course McDonald's is great, but Burger King's food is much better and much more quality. The fries are so much better at Burger King, and the chicken is so much better it's insane. Compare Burger King's Chicken Royale to McDonald's McChicken Sandwich, the Chicken Royale is so much better. However Burger King is more expensive here in Britain, but still, it's worth the extra few pounds. - EvilAngel

McDonalds- Fried burgers, greasy fries, Small burgers, expensive prices good breakfast

Burger King- Flame broiled burgers, tasty fries, good hershey pies, big burgers, cheap.

Overall: Burger king can kick mcdonalds a

I'm always having a menu (at McDonald's as well as at Burger King). Actually I don't see a big difference between the burgers - I love the 1955-Burger and the Big Tasty Bacon as well as the Double Steakhouse), but the salad you get at Burger King is not only much better than the McDonald's salad, it's also much bigger and many more components. That's why Burger King is better than McDonald's.

It's cheaper and I just like it better than McD's.

The way I see it? Mc Donald's? How can anyone eat that stuff? And all that other burger stuff? People like that over tacos and burritos! Taco Bell isn't the best best Mexican restaurant. Not even close... but you can't go wrong with burrito goodness. (Actually you can but that's another story)

I gotta go Taco Bell because Mexican food is just amazing. McDonalds is nasty. I don't know how people can eat there all the time knowing how they make they're food. Also the comment about 7-layers and Indiana is so true. (I made it a long time ago)

7-layer burritos are like sitting on a tropical beach in Indiana and flying into the sky...

I really like the food there, but they had bad customer service once. - lovefrombadlands

I love KFC rarely get the chance to eat it. Dream and droll over the thought of it most off the time. The coating on the chicken is to die for.

No no no! How is KFC 7th on this list? McDonald's is absolutely disgusting! Little kids only like McDonald's because there's some stupid little toy inside and because of that stupid clown!

KFC is heaven. Everyone in my class loves it! Their chicken wings are glorious. Mcdonald is ok. Subway is another great one I love the honey mustard. Pizza hut is epic but not as good as subway or mcdonald. Dominoes pizza? Their disgusting I mean there pizzas are fantASTIC but there's probaly a 75 percent chance there's a booger in there. So be careful!

BEST FAST FOOD EVER!


best chicken colsala and well everything!

7 Pizza Hut Pizza Hut

Everyone who voted for McDonald was either lying or an idiot. Nobody likes cheese burgers more than pizza and nobody likes McDonald more than Burger King or Wendy's.

Pizza Hut is the best of them all though.

Since pizza is the PERFECT junkfood, this had to get my vote. - RdrTech

9 Dairy Queen

If you love REALLY good deserts and food you gotta come here its latterly HEAVEN I mean every time I go there my mouth waters like crazy and once I start eating I can't stop! That's how good it is there! (unless your allergic to dairy I mean its in the name... Dairy Queen )

Best Cakes, Ice Cream and desert for a fast food joint. However DQ has only okay burgers personally just go in for the dessert if you are going to eat there.

Why is Dairy Queen all the way down here at #9? Unfortunately, there aren't very many of these where I am, but when I visit family in Minnesota, we always visit Dairy Queen to get that amazing Royal Blizzard. All the desserts here are great. The quality is much better than McDonalds.

Really good place to get ice cream - MarioNinja101

10 In-N-Out Burger In-N-Out Burger In-N-Out Burger is an American regional chain of fast food restaurants with locations primarily in the American Southwest and Pacific coast. It was founded in Baldwin Park, California in 1948 by Harry Snyder and Esther Snyder. The chain is currently headquartered in Irvine, California and has slowly ...read more.

Only those who have tasted the In-n-Out burger have reached true cheeseburger enlightenment. Their toasted bun, melty cheese, delicious tomatoes and lettuce, and that steamy cooked-to-order patty fresh off the griddle make them king. Vote for McDonald's only if you love nuggets that come from genetically modified geriatric chickens and low-quality burgers that aren't cooked-to-order and are kept under the heat lamp for HOURS.

What the hell is In-n-out only number 9 on this list? In n out is amazing. I love and everybody else should to. The Buns are warm, the cheese is melty and it tastes so good, the meat taste like heaven, and the lettuce and tomatoes add flavor to the burgers and the "special sauce"(thousand island dressing) adds even MORE flavor to the burger. They Also have fries that aren't too greasy or too salty. The fries are just perfect. Also, the secret menu items have a lot to offer and most of the items on there are really good. Another good thing to get there is the milkshakes. The milkshakes there tastes so good and I love. The last thing I'd like to say is that I always feel comfortable there. The tables are clean, its got a nice cool feeling, and I feel like I can just sit there for hours just relaxing. I know that people really shouldn't eat fast food, but if you are going to go out for a nice run for fast food, I recomend in n out burger.

This is the place. To. Get. BURGERS! The reason why it is not 1st place is because it's only in about 3 states, too bad most people can't try it-unlike its all over the world counterpart McDonald's.

Has fantastic burgers and fries, the milkshakes are also extraordinary - MarioNinja101

Five Guys has the best burgers and fries ever. Why is McDonald's at the top? McDonalds is disgusting.

Come on five guys is a hell of a lot better that disgusting McDonald's the burgers at McDonald's are flavorless and gross tasting the fries also upset your stomach unlike Five Guys, Five Guys has very tasty, great burgers and way better fries made out of peanut oil. Five guys have real burgers not crap like McDonald's or Burger King. You just have to go there and try them yourself to understand my comment.

Although it's kind of fatty, it's MUCH more organic than McDonald's and Taco Bell, and it just tastes awesome, like something you'd get at a nostalgic diner. The fries just taste amazing, and you can also have Cajun seasoning on them! Suck on that McDonald's! Plus, did I mention the free peanuts? - ethanmeinster

I'm so upset there's no five guys near where I live, I went there once when I was at the beach and it was amazing - RPD6478

12 Domino's Pizza Domino's Pizza Domino’s Pizza, Inc. is an American pizza restaurant chain founded in 1960. The corporation is headquartered at the Domino's Farms Office Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan. In February 2018, the chain became the largest pizza seller worldwide and in the United States based upon global retail sales.

What!?
Domino's Pizza should at least be on the top 10!
It's the best pizza in the world! - BeautifulPrincess

Simply horrible; not even pizza as far as I'm concerned. Insipid (tasteless) sauce, cheese with totally the wrong viscosity (way too soft and runny to be normal mozzarella), horrible fake butter / garlic flavor to the crust. Of course, this is all based on a pizza I got from Domino's over a year ago -- after that experience I never went back, the only local location closed and the building was torn down (there is now an auto parts store in a new building at this location).

It is the best because the crust is seasoned well and they don't hold back on the toppings! The sauce is plentiful too! The costumer service is wonderful! EAT DOMINO'S, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

Their pizza is okay... - MarioNinja101

13 Sonic Sonic

Best hamburgers around= The Hamburgers from SONIC! I have an idea.
Replace Sonic with McDonalds because McDonald's food is fake and comes out of a machine.

Sounds like a plan to me!

Their food has gotten better, but what really makes Sonic killer is the drinks. Slushed, Shakes, Sodas, nearly an infinite amount of combinations. And their always adding to their drink menu. Also they have now added real fruit slushes

Sonic is definitely killer with awesome drinks and happy hour. - Randomator

Sonic has the best chicken sandwiches, the onion rings are to die for, just like eating dessert. The diet cherry cokes are amazing. Love the service.

This place wasn’t so bad, but then the one near me got a rat infestation so my family and I don’t go there anymore - MarioNinja101

14 Arby's Arby's Arby's is the second-largest quick-service fast-food sandwich restaurant chain in America in terms of units with more than 3,300 restaurants system wide and third in terms of revenue. In October 2017, Food & Wine called Arby's "America's second largest sandwich chain (after Subway)".

Arbys is great;) I used to be in love wit mc donalds but now its just not good! Arbys is the place to go not too expensive like KFC not to gross like wendys burgers, not to rude like mc donalds has a great ATMOSPHERE never had a problem there and the simplicity of a fast good tasty meal on the go with the greatness of a diverse community of people that show their customers wit respect Arbys 100% and let me tell you I have not always been a fan...

THIS is how you make fast food. Forget about McDonald's, Popeye's, White Castle, Chick Fil-A, Taco Bell, Wendy's, Jimmy John's, Long John Silver's, Ground Round, OR Burger King. Arby's has the perfect balance of healthy and unhealthy, and the curly fries are delicious. Truly unique, and a nice break from McDonald's.

Arby's is the best. No one comes close to its roast beef goodness! - tjvallejos

Their roast beef sandwhiches are TO DIE FOR - RPD6478

15 Chipotle

What? What is wrong with the world? Chipotle is my life! This should be number 1! Not only is chipotle heaven in a burrito/bowl/taco it's healthy for you! You can get your protein, dairy, veggies, fruits and grains. Come on now... McDonalds is probably the main cause of OBESITY! You don't know what those people are doing to your food. But at chipotle you can watch your food! So I'm a need everyone to vote for chipotle because I just don't understand y this isn't number one... Or Evan the top ten! It's sick!

! Chipotle should beat McDonalds! The food here is amazing. Gotta love that spice! Not to mention, the food is healthy and humanely raised!

Love this place. Pretty much a mexican resturaunt but get your food like subway. Burrito Bowl is the best way to go becuase you can get a bag of chips and eat it with it. Too bomb

It is the beat

Gotta love the orange chicken

I love Panda Express my favorites are the orange chicken and honey walnut shrimp.

Panda Express has some really good food and I always get full there. The chowmein is tasty, especially with soy sauce, the fried rice is by far the best I have tasted out of all the American Chinese places I have been to. The Veggie Springs Rolls are healthy, crunchy, delicious, and make a great snack. And I love their Honey Walnut Shrimp, Broccoli Beef(without the beef, but love the broccoli and sauce), and their Orange Chicken is good too. - AnimeDrawer

I don’t like Chinese Food that much, and the food here always makes me sick. Not that their food tastes bad, it’s just that it makes me ill and I’m not into Chinese food as said before so yea - MarioNinja101

Offerings include soups, salads, pasta, ...read more.

Are you serious? Number 48? Panera is the classiest restaurant and healthiest fast food restaurant I have ever been to. The staff is polite and has a sense of humor, the food is top quality and also healthy. The appearance of Panera will appeal to everyone, whether the elderly, kids, teenagers, anyone. Their soups are excellent, the sandwiches are top-notch, and their desserts (which are freshly made) are to die for. I don't understand how Panera Bread is in 48th place, with all the fatty restaurants at the top. I mean, you can eat DELICIOUS food without having it spurt grease. Panera is OBVIOUSLY the best one, no doubt.

If you're sophisticated and like bread, Panera is the place for you. And that's why I go there. Also, their mac and cheese is excellent. - RiverClanRocks

I see a lot of people commenting that this place is so healthy... No guys, some of their sandwiches are still be high in calories. Lets not mention the sodium for most of those sandwiches. That being said I still love Panera Bread. Can't wait for the one right up the street from my work to open.

Pretty good, I like their macaroni and cheese - MarioNinja101

Jack In The Box is awesome, their curly fries are the bomb! Their burgers are good, this place has one of the best fries. I like the Jack Spicy Chicken, very good burger. Even their regular fries are extremely good and the best in any restaurant. - AnimeDrawer

Jack in the box is so underrated. It makes the best nuggets, fries, and burgers. Also, they have a teriyaki bowl, something most fast food restaurants don't have. - Oliveleaf

20 Buffalo Wild Wings

It is so good there just hanging out watching sports and eating wigs. I am not an adult so I can't drink beer but I bet it taste amazing. It beats any wing place. All the American football, Soccer, and Basketball all in one restaurant. Why is McDonalds number 1 they put all grease in there food and yucky stuff. No one really knows what they put in there. Well if you're a worker or a VIP you know but if you are a customer like me there could be something very groose in there. Also I have seen some workers without gloves. I am not saying McDonalds is not good just my trusted old Buffalo Wild Wings is on my side. - Christos123

Dude beer may taste good but its dangerous to drink it. And I don't know why people even drink 🍺 beer 🍺 - DanteTopTenners

Wings, Beer, Sports... Come on guys. What else could you ask for while enjoying some hot wings with a nice cold beer and all the same time watching your favorite sport.

Buffalo Wild Wings has the best Chicken Wings, but the Drinks aren't that great. They serve Pepsi Products (which they probably can't do anything about), and the beer is just stupid. I don't know why people drink it, but I'd probably just order a Dr. Pepper or Pepsi when I go, although I like Coke.

This place isn’t that good. If you want quality wings go to Wings ‘n’ Things. But if anyone likes this place then I guess you’ve already found your quality of wings - MarioNinja101

A&W... By far my favourite! McDonald's uses horse meat in their God-awful burgers, Burger King has terrible service, and Wendy's has mushy burger patties. Now let's start anew, A&W is the KING of root beer, A&W's burgers (especially the Teen Burger) is not too fatty, not mushy, not made of horse meat (all beef patties) with the right amount of ingredients, is DELICIOUS! I am currently waiting on a Spicy Blue Cheese Teen Burger! And at least where I'm from, the employees literally greet me with a heartwarming smile. -

The Mozza Double Cheeseburger is the GREATEST BURGER EVER! at least at a fast-food place. Plus, A&W Rootbeer out of a giant frosty mug... it's hard to top - VADERtheIMPALER

Where I live we only have McDonalds and Burger King, but when I'm in the States I ALWAYS go to A&W at least once!

Best fast food burgers by far.Fries are delicious as well as frosty root beer

Fun fact: 99% of people who drink Starbucks do it to look cool.

The coffee is too darkly roasted therefore it tastes terrible. Dunkin Donuts is so much better tasting and it is priced for the non-plastic people crowd.

Starbucks just makes the best coffee for teens and adults! I just love starbucks.

The iced coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and Frappuccinos are really good - MarioNinja101

23 Whataburger

Whataburger blows In-n-out out of the water. When they first came to Texas I was so excited to try the best fast food burger in town. I tried it 3 different times. It is good, but to call it the best is an overshot. Whataburger is the winner in my opinion.

Way better than In n out and white castle, the south knows how to make a good burger, not the north or California! Best burgers ever made in the history of fast food and it never disappoints.

Frankly, this is the best fast food restaurant I've ever tried. Unlike most fast food burgers, theirs was big and tasted great. Service wasn't all that bad either (at least at the place I was at. )

I have heard of Hardee's before, but for a long time, I never been there. That is until I went to York, PA, and passed through not one, but TWO Hardee's. That is more Hardee's than I've seen before. But that is just the first time I have ever SEEN a Hardee's. I went to both locations and oh my god, I sure as hell enjoyed it. Definitely worth the wait.

THE most pathetic excuse for "seafood" I have ever had the misfortune to try. They SUCK! No loss that this rip off chain is folding up. Good!

This is a joke, right? Long John Silvers has the most undercooked, bland fish I have ever tasted. I have no sympathy for the locations closing down.

Yum!

There is only one of these in Maine, but worth every last mile... chicken strips with barbecue sauce... m

It's amazing chicken when it's fresh, and it would have taken my vote if it were consistently fresh, but more than a few times I've gotten chicken that has sat out for a few hours and it's chewy and nasty.

Best fried chicken I've ever tasted! And the fries. They taste bomb. KFC is terrible. Why is it 5th? Popeyes has crispy, tender as hell, juicy, delicious chicken and super flavorful fries.

White Castle is much better than McDonald's. While the fries are barely better than the ones you get for lunch at school, the sliders are delicious, and there are many varieties to keep you coming back. Plus, White Castle is cheaper than most fast food chains.

I've had it a couple of times and it actually isn't that good same thing my friends have said it's not that good either

White Castles sliders are the best fast food burgers of all time

The chicken rings are tasty.

34 Bojangles

Only on the east coast. Mainly in the Carolinas. Once you go to Bojangles, you'll never go back to any other fast food joint.

Dude it's the best you may not be able to have it on the west coast but it's awesome So don't be stupid

Sadly this isn't around where I live. I've always wanted to try a bo-berry biscuit (not sure how you spell it) - Btd

Never heard of this place must be crappy or not really known by many people cause it's in 43rd place lol

35 Jimmy John's

The owner of jimmy johns hunts endangered animals, subway for the win - Trollsfan536

I absolutely love jimmy johns with their French bread and their own chip brand. Seriously why is McDonald's even a restaurant they don't even cook anything it s all science there

They have awesome subs especially the Italian sub. - Ajkloth

People be sleepin on Jimmy John's, way better quality food then any of these places above ^^^

36 Cold Stone Creamery

Their ice cream is so good and they have awesome toppings - Ajkloth

Ice cream here is really good - MarioNinja101

They make the best ice cream. - Pony

I like their toppings and I go here occasionally. Their icecream is very good, but it might get too sweet once I eat it many times. - AnimeDrawer

37 Quiznos Quiznos QIP Holder, LLC, doing business as Quiznos, is a franchised fast-food restaurant brand based in Denver, Colorado that specializes in offering toasted submarine sandwiches.

Definitely better than Subways. Their bread is wonderful and food very tasty. Wish there were more in the Northeast. - mgenet

Before Subway I would have had this a lot higher, but subway kind of left Quiznos in the dirt. Don't worry Quiznos I still remember you guys

Never heard of it but subway is better in my opinion cause Quiznos makes subs I guess like subway

Rip-off of Subway to me. Their food is cheap and not good - MarioNinja101

38 Jersey Mike's Subs

I don't like subs, so it's saying something when I liked and ate ( very slowly though) a Jersey Mike's Sub. Then again, I do live near the Shore ( hell, I live next to Point Pleasant). - Pony

! This is only 71?! This should be at least 5!

A Jersey Mikes just opened up in Mt. Kisco, NY, and it's right next to Subway. I think Jersey Mikes should stick to opening up in New Jersey. - Sandwiches

The meatball sub is pretty good, but then again I’m not a big fan of meat and I don’t like meatballs that much - MarioNinja101

39 Papa John's

Papa John's has a very good use of cheese in it's pizza. It has a very authentic and very greasy, cheesy and delicious flavor! It gives a feel to luxury in your taste buds so what are you waiting for!

Papa johns is number 1 by far

The best it has fresh ingredients tastes awesome especially with the garlic sauce. Way better than Dominoes Pizza and Pizza Hut

Really good pizza - MarioNinja101

40 IHOP

IHOP has a big amount of topping on your table to choose from. There is from strawberry syrup to butter and all the way to your finest plate! Pancakes win so IHOP your way over there!

International House of Pancakes.

Way better then Denny's need to add a bar section though

Very good place to get breakfast, but Denny’s is better to me - MarioNinja101

41 Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

This is such an underrated restaurant but it is by no doubt my favorite and it deserves the number one spot.

I ate here and had 5 pieces of fried chicken just plain fried chicken with BBQ It was great.I know people say the fresh batch is the best but I did not get fresh and it was still good. - Ilyas678

This is already on the list - Trollsfan536

42 Checkers / Rally's

So good would be better if was healthier. Best fries ever tasted best burger and I want to try their dessert!

Checkers is really good. It has some pretty amazing foods and also it has a bunch of different types of foods.

MacDonald's doesn't hold a candle to them and they have a value menu also

Angry Grandpa's favorite burger place, RIP AGP

44 Krispy Kreme

I could eat like 8 glazed donuts but don't want to have a heart attack best donuts in the world everything on the menu is good. - Ilyas678

Better than Dunkin' Donuts. - xXLittleQueensXx

Their glazed donuts are to die for! - MarioNinja101

47 Culver's

Culver's is LIFE. I work there and it's actually pretty fun! The team is kind, the managers are nice, and the food...OH MAN THE FOOD. The burgers, tenders, fries, custard, EVERYTHING tastes amazing! Perfect 10/10 from me. A must go.

This is my third favorite fast food restaurant, below Subway, which is #2, and Arby's, my all-time favorite. The butter burgers, fries, and custard taste great. However. My stomach feels greasy afterward.

Culvers should be #1! it is the best resturant ever!

It really sucks that this is like a Midwest only restaurant because it’s so good! They have the best chicken strips ever, good burgers, and good onion rings lol. The custard is also really good and I love their shakes. Culver’s is definitely
My favorite fast food place and I’ve had pretty much all of them.

48 Harvey's

Simply the best BURGERS out there. SO UNDERRATED. - leol

If I went to Canada, I would immediately go there for lunch. I have a feeling I would love it, and rave about it here. - Pony

Good option for vegetarians.

Harveys is the best!

49 TacoTime

Taco Time sucks. Get Taco Bell.

Taco time ins't just THE best fast food restraunt. It is also the healthiest! Their beef is good, but their CHICKEN IS THE BEST I'VE EVER HAD! My favorite thing there is the crisp chicken taco. If anybody is reading this and is worried about calories, 1 of them is only 195!

Taco poop served my food the colour green and if you were wondering the foos was not supposed to be that colour

50 Pizza Inn

They have a cheese pizza with no tomato sauce. It's great

I like this restaurant for pizza!

The third comment made me laugh!

The one in Elizabethton TN is the best pizza imaginable. Anywhere else is gay.
