Best Fast Food Restaurants

The Top Ten

1 McDonald's McDonald's McDonald's is an American hamburger and fast food restaurant chain. It was founded in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald.

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!

Mcdonald's might be a little bad but it is better then burger king by 1000 burger king has nasty ass chicken the only reason why I go there is because they have icee's and there fries are fatter than my fingers there is no reason why you guys should be hating on mcdonalds

2 Subway Subway Subway IP Inc. is a privately held American fast food restaurant franchise that primarily sells submarine sandwiches and salads. It is owned and operated by Doctor's Associates Inc., doing business as Subway IP Inc.

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

Meatball sub is delicious best fast food ever McCain donalds will someday lose this is the new food

3 Wendy's Wendy's Wendy's is an American international fast food restaurant chain founded by Dave Thomas on November 15, 1969, in Columbus, Ohio, United States.

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!

Their ice cream is nice but their hot dogs aren't. the bun tasted stale, the sausage was rubbery and chewy like plastic, the cheese was more orange than Trump. - Lunala

4 Burger King Burger King Burger King is an American global chain of hamburger fast food restaurants. Headquartered in the unincorporated area of Miami-Dade County, Florida, the company was founded in 1953 as Insta-Burger King, a Jacksonville, Florida-based restaurant chain.

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.

Great food, a lot better flavor than the mcdonalds food imoa

5 Taco Bell Taco Bell Taco Bell is an American chain of fast-food restaurants based in Irvine, California. A subsidiary of Yum!

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 have to poop

6 KFC KFC Kentucky Fried Chicken, more commonly known by its initials KFC, is an American fast food restaurant chain that specializes in fried chicken.

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!

I love KFC. their nuggets are so good - Lunala

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

tastes like the best pizza I've ever tasted and for me pizza hut is alawys around theres so many - wildog47

Delivious but the desert bar is a monkey house because of little kids. my sister found chewed up jelly in her chocolate sauce. But when the bar is clean its good - Lunala

9 Dairy Queen 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.

I one time saw one at a gas station, and there was a lot of icecream there, and it looked very good. I actually wanted an icecream from here. - AnimeDrawer

10 Five Guys Burgers and Fries Five Guys Burgers and Fries Five Guys Burgers and Fries is an American fast casual restaurant chain focused on hamburgers, hot dogs, and French fries, and headquartered in Lorton, Virginia, an unincorporated part of Fairfax County.

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

The Contenders

11 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.

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.

Heard that it is really good, but I don't eat here since they don't have any chicken burgers and I don't eat red meat. - AnimeDrawer

12 Domino's Pizza Domino's Pizza Domino's Pizza Inc. is a large American pizza restaurant chain founded in 1960. The corporation is headquartered at the Domino's Farms Office Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States.

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!

Don't like their pizza personaly but they have nice dessert in australia - Lunala

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.

I ordered a hot dog one time and it tasted nasty, the bun wasn't well cooked and the patty was nasty as heck, one of the reasons I don't like red meat. - AnimeDrawer

14 Arby's Arby's Arby's Restaurant Group, Inc., or simply Arby's, is the second-largest quick-service fast-food sandwich restaurant chain in the U.S.

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

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

I used to hate this place because I thought the chips tasted awful. But once I tried their burritoes, it was so good, and probably the mainstream restaurant closest to real Mexican food. It is way better than Subway in my opinion, and just as healthy, and it is much better than McDonalds. The vegetables are fresh, and the sauces are so good, and the chicken is always well made, best place for burritoes. The only thing that isn't really that good about this place is the chips, but the burritoes are heaven! - AnimeDrawer

16 Panda Express

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

Their fried rice is good

17 Panera Bread Panera Bread Panera Bread Company is an American chain of bakery-café fast casual restaurants in the United States and Canada.

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.

Panera is the best fast food place, I'm sorry, I don't consider garbage as food like the people who voted for those other places. (Jk, no obfense to anyone or any place.)

18 Dunkin' Donuts Dunkin' Donuts Dunkin' Donuts is an American global donut company and coffeehouse based in Canton, Massachusetts, in Greater Boston.

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!

Sausage party made me not want to drink third coffee again. - Trollsfan536

19 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.

I love going there eating wings and watchin sports with my buds.

20 Jack In The Box Jack In The Box Jack in the Box is an American fast-food restaurant chain founded February 21, 1951, by Robert O. Peterson in San Diego, California, where it is headquartered.

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

More of these in Cali than McDonald's. Amazing food! Open 24/7 breakfast all day

Some of it is good, most is gross. - USGC
