Best Fast Food Restaurants
The Top Ten
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
It is one of the best and Pizza Hut.
Pizza Hut buffet in the week. You always get a salad.
One of the local Pizza Huts never has many people (terrible shopping centre was better in the 70s-90s that's why there is never many people in the Pizza Hut.) but I remember the buffet with a friend doing a "How many Pizza's can you eat" funny.
KFC had food scares.
I hate Subway.
Burger King is ok but I don't go there very often
I've still got some Happy Meal toys around somewhere.
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
This is either your favorite, or your least favorite. There is very few in between. - scienceLover10383 Comments
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
Not healthy, but probably better for you than most other fast food places. - 3DG20
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
Subway is the best fast-food place. It is healthy you get to pick what you want on your sandwich. Its just amazing overall! I am a fan of McDonalds, but I don't think it should be above Subway.325 Comments
King is in the name burger king is the king of fast foods - The_Monster
How the heck is this not higher then McDonalds.
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. - EvilAngel142 Comments
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
Why is this at #4. Make it #1 now.
Better than burger king
Their 4 for 4 is great. Name a better deal than a burger, nuggets, fries, and a drink for 4 bucks. - Randomator96 Comments
Great tenders, delicious nuggets, irresistible wings, There's no doubt that KFC is better than Mcdonalds. So therefore, KFC should be #1
Great sauce of chicken. its finger licking good!
It should be number 1152 Comments
oh my goshh it is amazing
and i love the waffle fries
I love the spice chicken sandwiches and the wonderful waffle French fries.
Quality food and always the best service

Cheap 12 pack tacos
I love taco bell!
Cheesy bean and rice burritos for life
Gross I totally like totes disagree.
How many times do I have to tell people that Pizza Hut is not fast food! - Smash64
We love them cookie pizzas IR?
The pizza and breadsticks for this place are amazing. - UltraLunalaX68 Comments
Blizzards are the best thing here. Everything else is meh - Randomator
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 )
Wait, isn't fan food and NOT fast food?
I would only go in for the dessert. - shiftaltkey56 Comments
Five Guys has the best burgers and fries ever. Why is McDonald's at the top? McDonalds is disgusting.
Outstanding! - LizC864
The fact that people think that McDonald's is better then Five Guys is disgusting. - Silence4101
I've only been there once, but it was AMAZING! - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy117 Comments
I don't think this should be in this place, because in countries like Canada they don't have "In-N-Out Burger".
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.
This should be top 5
Best burgers ever110 Comments
Pizza here is mediocre at best - Randomator
Dominos smells like period yummy
This is god tier pizza
The greasiest, nastiest pizza ever! Papa John's is way better than Domino's Little Caesar's and Pizza Hut44 Comments
2.) Chick Fil A
4.) Burger King
8.) Sbarro's Pizza
9.) Long John Silver's
Try the smokehouse brisket (I get it with no bbq sauce or mayonnaise). I have yet to find a fast food product of this quality and taste. Oddly enough, I used to hate Arby's until I actually tried it.
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...
#14? Wow, definition of underrated. - BestCoasters35 Comments
GO MARIO AND SONIC!
HIS BLUE SHADE IS VERY NICE HE IS ALSO FASTER THAN MARIO - GRACEISCOOL
It's not the food that's the problem. The problem is that they overprice everything! - shiftaltkey
Food is meh but they have good tater tots and drinks - Randomator40 Comments
This is the only takeout food I dislike. Burritos fall apart, I can't enjoy peppers or onions because they are always spicy and I once got sick because their food is out in the open. Taco bell is better.
Chipolte can't give cancer
I hate chipotle it's so bad and one time I had cancer with it47 Comments
Either this or McDonald's. This is the only fast food restaurant I know where its all homemade. I love there mac and cheese.
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.
Best experience, even when a 7 ft tall guy was behind a window while it was raining yeah it was not good but panera every day lol
The food is decent and there’s not much to hate about it - Randomator23 Comments
Quality ingredients, delicious hamburgers. Onion rings to die for. Apple pies are out of this world. Crispy fries. Great root beer. Good ketchup and mayo sides. Their egg-sausage on sesame bun, hash brown outstanding. Coffee tastes great. Superior to all over fast food chains. 1 problem... their paper straws -- can't stand them.
A&W is the best, plain and simple. Root beer check, killer onion rings check, real beef check, really good burgers (do yourself a favor and get the teen burger) double check
Don’t see too many around anymore - Randomator
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. -20 Comments

The way I see it its the one place to get donuts, crosonts, ice cream and other stuff you might get for lunch and dinner.
Dunkin donuts have the best burgers ever
I could walk to Dunkin donuts because it is next to my neighborhood and it is the best ever!23 Comments
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.
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
I'm not from California but I heard this fast food sucks.
More of these in Cali than McDonald's. Amazing food! Open 24/7 breakfast all day14 Comments
I JUST can't EXPLAIN HOW GOOD IT IS IN WORDS
It's the best. There's no other way to say it.
Gotta love the orange chicken
I love their orange chicken, chow mein, honey-walnut shrimp, and cream cheese wontons. The food from these fast food places should be as cheap to buy as the ones from McDonald's. - DinoLover424225 Comments
If you're from the South, then you know exactly what I'm talking about. Best fast food place you will ever visit. They have tenders that blow away McDonald's chicken nuggets, and even their breakfasts are high quality. - KeyboardHero
THE BEST IN TUCSON
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.
Amazing pizza. Defenently deserves to be higher on the list.
Yep the best ever
Best pizza ever..! - BestCoasters
The wings are okay but to me are cheaply made, the pizza is pretty good, and the breadsticks are phenomenal16 Comments
Not fast food. - Smash64
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
I wouldn't consider it fast food - Randomator
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.16 Comments
The chicken is nicely battered, Juicy, and a nice golden crisp how fried chicken should be
Popeyes is the best
This IS SUCH A GOOD PLACE, I LIVE IN LOUISIANA AND THERE EVERYWHERE AND GREAT!
This is such an underrated restaurant but it is by no doubt my favorite and it deserves the number one spot.5 Comments
Whitest of the white. Most people here wear shirts with different colleges and also wear football hats. Good food but not so good customers sometimes. 6/10. - PopplioDaGamer05
Fun fact: 99% of people who drink Starbucks do it to look cool.
Starbucks is on the list but Costa isn't
This is sad
Extremely Overrated - Randomator28 Comments
Tim hortons is the best it taste so good
Never heard of this - Randomator
For all you Americans this is like Starbucks, but cheaper and tastes better. A must try for everyone
Not fast food
Eh it’s okay but not the best - Randomator
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!

Not fast food. - Smash64
Ice cream here is really good
Their ice cream is so good and they have awesome toppings - Ajkloth6 Comments
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.
Decent - Randomator
It does take forever but they get it done right
Amazing selection of perfectly prepared burgers. Price is unbeatable. Shakes are to die for.
Love this place its have great food - TinyToonsGirl4520 Comments
Should be #1 for sure. Ties with burger king.
The star symbol is so cute!
This should be #1!
To me it is Hardee's, and yes, it PWNS. - Cbatower14 Comments
HARDEES IS so GOOD! Sadly, there isn't even one where I live ( I was lucky enough to even find one, in Pennsylvania! Yes, I ate there if you think I'm lying). McDonald's is crap, but at least I enjoy it. But, not as good as this. Just wanted to show my 2 cents... - MrBrony8675309
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. By the way, I am the same person who commented before, MrBrony8675309. - Pony
These people know how to make a burger, or should I say thickburger. Sometimes I Find it upsetting this wonderful idea is not here up in the northeast anymore. Hardees is just a once in a year opportunity when I go to Myrtle Beach for February or April.
I am getting one in my town! They are the greatest! Hardee's, I believe in you!5 Comments
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
Spicy Supreme Meal is EPIC! - ShyGuySwag2 Comments
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 much1 Comment
This should be higher. One of the best Mexican fast food places I've ever been to. I hope we have one in my hometown.
This is my favorite it is mostly from the west coast but when we got one on the east I tried it and it was 100 times better than chipotle and I liked chipotle. - Ilyas678
This is hands down the best ever. Everything is fresh. They don't have a microwave or a freezer in the building. The salsa fresca is awesome and the slow roasted roast beef is delicious.
This is the best dang restaurant in America I am ashamed and I repeat ASHAMED on yallz choice this just goes too show how obesity has struck this here merica

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. - Pony3 Comments
Tastier than Subway's for sure, at least here in Canada. I remember when they first started showing up, their "large" subs were absolutely huge - something close to 18" and had to be cut in thirds; now their largest is closer to 12". Too bad my local Quiznos shut down, because I've *always* picked it over Subway's more limited choices.
Rip-off of Subway to me. Their food is cheap and not good
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 guys6 Comments

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. - Ilyas6788 Comments
For anyone who hasn’t tried wing stop, I highly recommend it because their food is so tasty especially the boneless Cajun and Hawaiian wings which I always get and they have amazing fries. This fast food is a must go for everyone. This place is my favey.
Good - Minecraftisawesone
They make yummy and juicy burgers and it should be at least in the top ten
This is just a stupid list of people please opinions just voting! Who cares if Hungry Jack's is 38! If you believe that Hungry Jack's is number one, put it as number one! Make another list and put Hungry Jack's as fist and put reasons! I think Hungry Jack's is number one as well and it's number one for me, so put it as number one for you!
they burgers are way better than mcdonalds, but I think hungry jacks is only Australian
WHAT?!? how is this not in the top ten?!? love the taste. - dragon133042 Comments
Better than kfc - RPD6478
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.15 Comments
Much better than 'the well-known' fast food restaurants.
I live in New York and everybody eats them!
Their poutines and hotdogs are SUPER good.
Already on the list! D8< - BorisRule
