Best Canadian Fast Food Chains

This list compiles the fast food chains in Canada that us Canadians love the most.

The Top Ten

1 Tim Horton's Tim Horton's

By far the best fast food chain in Canada, maybe even in North America. - RogerMcBaloney

It is amazing and delicious

Canada's iconic company

As an american I have never had it but all my other american friends that have been say this is better than starbucks

2 Harvey's Harvey's

Harvey's a great fast food chain. It's my favorite fast food chain. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Best burger chain ever. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

They say "Harvey's makes your hamburger a beautiful thing", and we aren't disagreeing one bit. - BKAllmighty

Me and my family go to Harvey's all the time and we can't get enough!

3 A&W Canada A&W Canada

By far the best burgers. I usually buy a Teen Burger and fries with the best pop in the world (Root Beer) in a chilled mug.

Its just juicy and they make it with care

Great commitment to sustainability and Fair Trade

Is many very good

4 Mary Brown's Mary Brown's

There's no comparison when they are using this much bigger fresh product compared to the other guys little obviously frozen pieces. You can feed your whole family a lot cheaper and with better food than the burger joints!

Been eating this since I was a kid over 40 years ago! Thanks Mary Browns for all the great memories and full belly's!

Best chicken ever!

Amazingly delicious chicken... everything tastes fresh!

5 Pizza Nova Pizza Nova

"4 3 9 OH OH OH OH Pizza Nova! " If that line doesn't sound familiar to you, you haven't become familiar with the great pizza chain that is Pizza Nova. Mind you, it's pretty much just around Toronto and Hamilton, so really, only so many people have tried it. - BKAllmighty

6 New York Fries New York Fries

Best fries and poutine I’ve ever had

The oddest things about NYF is how it's claim to fame is its poutine which isn't even from New York (or the U.S. for that matter). The great and mighty Canadian poutine remains as an essential part of every balanced Canadian diet (not really) and is truly a national treasure. Seriously, U.S. , give this stuff a try. - BKAllmighty

7 Mr. Sub Mr. Sub

Known also by its former official name, 'Mr. Submarine', Mr. Sub manages to survive against the colossal sandwich giant, Subway, and keeps its Canadian customers happy with good food and fair prices. - BKAllmighty

8 Pizza Pizza Pizza Pizza

Love their pepperoni especially, should definitely order that more often. Only concern is that it's kinda pricey. Really good food but you're gonna need much more than $20 if you're gonna order from this place.

If Pizza Pizza ever lowered their prices I would be a much more frequent customer. For me, if you can make pizza with excellent crust you've won me over and this place certainly has. This chain's existence kept the Canadian branch of Little Caesars Pizza from using the line as their catchphrase. Instead they simply use the line "Hot 'N Ready! " in their television ads. - BKAllmighty

They have nice pizza but I wouldn't recommend any more food from this place. It's just disgusting, except pizza.

They have it in America

9 Hero Certified Burgers Hero Certified Burgers

Not even from Canada but I ate here about 10,000 times and counting. Some of the best burgers in my city

There are a lot of these around the Greater Toronto Area and boy, are their burgers ever tasty. Beats McD's any day. - BKAllmighty

10 Pita Pit Pita Pit

Only been there a handful of times. Sadly, this type of fast food chain seems to struggle to reach popularity and familiarity. If there were more locations I'd go to them more. Sure is healthier. - BKAllmighty

Very healthy options. Something for everyones taste preferences. Smoothies are awesome! So is the service, very clean place!

McDonald's isn't Canadian, it's American. Good fast food place, but still. - masoncarr2244

Whenever I see a candidate has McDonald's training, I always interview them. And to be honest, usually more them because they have been trained properly!

McDonald’s is the best

McDonald’s is garbage! Take it off!

13 Greco Pizza Greco Pizza
14 BeaverTails

These things are so good I had one after skating the Rideau Canal just to make it taste even better - Canadian

One of Canada's most loved desert chains, they strive on making sure that each customer comes out feeling way more fat then they are used to.
Pam and Grant Hooker begin serving BeaverTails pastries in 1978 at the Killaloe Fair, west of Ottawa, Ontario. Soon after, in the late 70s and early 80s, stores were popping up left and right

15 Pizza Hut Pizza Hut Pizza Hut is an American restaurant chain and international franchise which was founded in 1958 by Dan and Frank Carney.
