2 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.

This place is one of the main reasons why so many people are obese today there is so much grease on them SURE ITS OK TO HAVE MCDONALDS ONCE IN A WHILE BUT NOW ONCE A WEEK!. Think about it the workers don't care about you they care about your money, this place is so unhealthy nothing is super healthy here its all a grease - fest

I refuse to help a chain that uses such cheap horrible toxic things in the food they call things like "good" or "healthy". Well its not.

Fat people use TheTopTens I see

Wait, There is 4 places In the top ten best Fast foods that are also on the worst fast food! Doesn't make sense?!

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

Best place ever. Best things to get: Cheesy Gordita Crunch, Loaded Grillers, Burrito Supreme, Fresco menu, ok, EVERYThING!

its not authentic mexican food but it is flipping awesome

Food is prefrozen, not authentic Mexican, and it's just simply very bland, especially the taco meat. There is no flavor because everything is pre-frozen! - thekoolkritic

Diego's love that taco.

4 Chick-fil-A Chick-fil-A Chick-fil-A is an American fast food restaurant chain headquartered in the Atlanta suburb of College Park, Georgia, specializing in chicken sandwiches.

Chick-fil-A has awesome chicken sandwiches, very good fries, wonderful hand-crafted milkshakes, good lemonade and iced tea, and has a very supplementary breakfast.

Healthier than most fast food options. Plus, their chicken nuggets are better quality than McDonald's. - ethanmeinster

I mean't to click Wendy's

6 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.

Certainly better than mcdonalds or burger king. - thekoolkritic

Why did they remove the spicy chicken nuggets though. That's my favorite thing from Wendy's... ;-;

Fresh hot food, great salads. Clean

I love Wendy's - RoseCandyMusic

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

Love it or hate it, KFC has the world famous chicken and you know it. It's so unheathly but delicious and it is unique too. KFC chicken KFC mac n cheese KFC mashed potatoes = HEAVEN!

Every time I get KFC it always makes me sick, usually leading to persistent vomiting. They literally deep fry it like 3 times! - thekoolkritic

Why is this lower than Chick Fil A? They think they're a five star restaurant when they are really a 2 1/2. KFC is good.

This place has the best chicken! At least not the crispy ones...

8 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.

Five Guys is above this? Wow that's a shame that the people on the east coast can't have the best hamburger on the planet at Inn-n out

mmm... animal style french fries. yummy burgers #1! 1

It was Summer Vacation, and my family and I were traveling to California to see family, and the beautiful Yosemite. We would stay at my Grandpa's for the first few days, then start our first road trip together. (In case you're confused, I've lived on Maui all my life, and there it's too small for a road trip) When staying with Grandpa, we were at the park in the afternoon. Some obnoxious kids suddenly yelled "Look! A baby bird! " I looked behind me, and mom and I saw these two kids picking up this tiny thing and putting it in the tree, throwing it, trying to make it fly, and other terrible stuff. I was about to give the idiots a piece of my mind, but then their dad called them and the (insert whatever nasty word you want here)s left. My mother and I, knew very well how to take care of baby birds. We'd rescued, and raised, a baby mynah, who is now living with us, and trained to talk (they are excellent talkers). It was the absolute cutest thing I'd ever seen in person. A ...more

Kind of expensive, but I like the simplicity. Their burgers are awesome as well.

9 Pizza Hut

Really? An average American's favorite pizza is always Pizza Hut for whatever reason. If you hold the pizza up by the crust, the rest of the pizza sags down due to the unnecessary amount of grease used to make the pizza. Also the service is really bad. - thekoolkritic

Everybody is gabbing about Papa Johns and Domino's, but despite the grease, I prefer Pizza Hut hands down. The dough and crust is made and baked perfectly, and I've never had a wrong order, since I am extremely picky (I hate cheese). - benhos

Love their pizzas! Their pastas are good too and the restaurant looks warm and welcoming. And who doesn't love pizza!

Not real pizza lol. You should go to your local pizza place instead.

10 5 Guys Burgers and Fries

5 guys is amazing! My mom, friend, and I went there a while ago, and let me tell you, IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. they have a wide variety of drinks, have amazing fries, and their burgers are so good I could've died they have the best burgers

This is no doubt the BEST place to go to for burgers! - kaitlynrad11

In-N-Out is higher now, screw this and other burger restaurants out there!

I die saying it has the best food

The Contenders

11 Dairy Queen

Awesome Ice Cream Love the Blizzards especially Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and MMS They re delicious god thank you for creating this wonderful restaurant

12 Steak n' Shake

Steak n' Shake have wonderful burgers, a very wide variety of milkshakes, have awesome chili cheese fries, and it's awesome that you can add shots of flavor to your drink. Steak n' Shake and Pilot/Flying J Travel Stops are the only places I know that have flavor shots.

Steak n' Shake is awesome. The best fast food burger joint I have been to.
Maybe a little pricey, but it is definitely worth the wait, because they always take their time cooking their food to perfection.

Pretty good burgers for a fast food chain restaurant. - thekoolkritic

Foods good

13 Popeye's

Popeyes should be higher up on the list!

14 Dominos Pizza
15 Culver's

The best burgers I've ever had with amazing custard and delicious cheese curds

I love Culver's!

I am from Wisconsin. Some people from Florida came here, went to a culverts. But ten burgers

I think it is a midwestern restaurant, it originated in Wisconsin. Its frozen custard will blow you away! Its butterburgers are to die for!

So many memories eating here as a kid!

17 Chipotle

Everybody keeps saying that they poop blood every time they eat it. If this is really true, then why do you keep eating it?! - thekoolkritic

The burritos are amazing and the workers are nice but it's unhealthy which is why I only have it once every couple of months as a treat

I want to try chipotle so much I don't care if I have to take a 15 minute drive to get here

It's so good, but there's blood coming out from my ass every time I eat some...
