Just taste a McDonald's burger. Yup, it's THAT bad. Just grill up something at home or go to Wendy's - kaitlynrad11

Don't go to Wendy's either, home grilled burgers are almost always better - NickLancer

People call this "good". It really isn't. I only eat there if I'm desperate. - Minecraftcrazy530

Even then I still would rather have chick fil a or anything else - Randomator

It's good, but I could name about 10 fast-food restaurants that I recommend over McDonald's. - Garythesnail

Their food is junk

I think they sell really good burgers and fries though their chicken fries are okay, not that good.

They sucks so bad. - Ilyas678

I don't like their chicken fries. - Trollsfan536

3 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.

This one tastes like cardboard but that's one great pizza.

This tastes great in my opinion

I think it's really good. Once I ordered there, it tasted BETTER than Ice Cream. Literally.

The pizza is way too oily. - Ilyas678

4 El Pollo Loco

Sounds like a coco restaurant

I've never even heard of this place, why is it on here...

Never heard of it either...

All the Hispanics get it, you want a nice burger or hot dog but your family wants their scrumptious pollo a la brasa (especially Peruvians)

5 Pollo Tropical

Never heard of this place...

6 Pizza Hut

Sometimes, this place’s food is AWFUL! My grandfather said his pizza was once has hard as a ROCK!

7 Dunkin Donuts

Their coffees are so overrated. - Trollsfan536

Only good fast food place the rest are too fatening and gross - Ihateschool

I like it - USGC

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. 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.

What makes this burger joint overhyped is it's scarcity. That contributes to people thinking that it's the best fast food burger. Mob mentality...Granted it is good but the love it gets for putting thousand island dressing on their food is unfounded. In and out can afford to branch out to other regions and still retain it's a quality but that would change its marketing scheme.

I really question why people like it more then five guys the burgers look lame what do they do put drugs in their burgers so people keep coming back. - Ilyas678

They're obsessed because it's the only good burger joint around there

It is a great franchise but it is overrated. - USGC

The Contenders

11 Sbarro

How is Sbarro overrated? Let's be honest. No one likes Sbarro. It's obviously a poor man's New York-style pizza. The crust is lukewarm and undercooked, the cheese is flavorless, the meat is over-processed, and the tomato sauce is the driest and nastiest I have ever tasted. Also, it's way overpriced.

I know it's a horrible place with horrible food but how can it be overrated if no one ever goes there?

I like their pizza. The salads are okay too. - Pegasister12

Never heard of the place...

12 Subway Subway Subway is a privately held American fast food restaurant franchise that primarily purveys submarine sandwiches (subs) and salads. Subway is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the worldand, as of June 2017, has approximately 45,000 stores located in more than 100 countries. More than half of the ...read more.

Sub is not what the picture looks like - it is not loaded with what you see in those pictures, it is like two slices of bread jammed over chips of meat and onions.

I just go 4 the Doritos - Ihateschool

It tastes good but it is not healthy(as for all fast foods),just a scam

13 Taco Bell

How do you tell someone is an idiot? If they brag about how taco bell is the bomb yo...

Their is no such thing as taste buds with plastic surgery - Trollsfan536

Wah? I love Taco Bell! You people's taste buds need plastic surgery. Sheesh

NEVER EVER EAT AT TACO BELL ITS AWFUL. - RevolNiartRuasonid

14 Habit Burger

Highly underrated. I love it though - SoloPotato

15 Five Guys Five Guys Five Guys Enterprises LLC (doing business as 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. The first Five Guys restaurant opened in 1986 in Arlington ...read more.

At least that's nothing compared to how overrated McDonald's is, but overall, though I do like this, it is unfortunately overrated.

Great, but unfortunately overrated.

I hate to say it but it isn't overrated. - USGC

This deserves to be overrated - Granton8ter05

17 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.

I'm not sure what I hate more, their super lame toasted sandwiches or that damn commercial they used to play...

When I was at Louisville International Airport we went there and had subs!

They gave us the sponge monkeys. Enough said!

18 White Castle

It makes u need 2 pee yes everything on the menu fills up your bladder - Ihateschool

Gross crap,...people must be smoking pot to like this dumb garbage...

19 Popeye's Chicken

The chicken was mediocre, the shrimp gave my mom a stomachache and it looked as small as a cockroach! - Trollsfan536

I had a friend take me to this place claiming it was the "greatest", well it makes KFC look like fine dining. The chicken was dry, over cooked and literally had no flavor but stale! Reminded me of those budget fried chicken t.v. dinners. And seriously who wants lousy beans and rice at a fast food restaurant? KFC kicks Popeye's butt.

Popeyes taste great. KFC is nasty. - USGC

20 Chick-fil-A

It's not bad but there are many other better options if you want good fried chicken.

I eat here occasionally and it's good don't get me wrong just overrated. - Randomator

Not as good as everyone says. Just okay I think.

My school is obsessed with them. If you hate Chick-fil-A, people hate you. I hate their fries and I'm a vegetarian so...the lemonade is pretty good thoigh, the best thing on the menu._. Overrated to the highest possible level.

21 Sonic

What if in 2016 there becomes a store called Mario - NESSquid

Microwaved frozen crap...

22 Zaxby's

I don’t care what you say. Their food isn’t even that good.

26 KFC

KFC is love, KFC is life. - AGK

27 Hardee's

Whats hardee's?

28 Papa John's

The local one put everything on top of the pizza backwards,...literally, I hated it, nothing was right...

29 Zippy’s

I’m from the one state where everyone I know supports them, and most of their normal food choices are mediocre. Their desserts are ok but you have to eat it cold. The noodles look all soggy and their chicken was a bit raw on my first try of it.
