The Top Ten Most Overrated Fast Food Restaurants

1 McDonald's McDonald's is an American fast food company, founded in 1940 as a restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald, in San Bernardino, California, United States. They rechristened their business as a hamburger stand. The first time a McDonald's franchise used the Golden Arches logo was in 1953 at ...read more.

ALL of these fast food restaurants serve food full of fat/salt/sugar so it's no wonder obesity rages, and people who eat them just don't care.

Food is terrible and overrated. Most of the time the ice cream machine is not working. I found a vein in my chicken one time and my friend ordered a four piece chicken nugget and got two.

McDonald's is gross. I'd rather inhale myself than eat there! The fries are ok, unless they're cold. The meat is too thin and chunky, the lettuce is old and mushy. And once I found a dried chicken eye in my nugget! Never eating there again! 10/10 do not recommend.

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

2 Burger King Burger King (BK) 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 InstaBurger King, a Jacksonville, Florida-based restaurant chain. After Insta-Burger King ran into financial difficulties ...read more.

People overrate them because they put rainbow wrappers with a pithy statement on their Whoppers and gave out rainbow crowns. Ergo are LGBTQ friendly which of course in this woke social justice world makes them the Best Ever.

They reheat their burgers. You could buy a microwavable burger in the shops for less.

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

The Megadeth of fast food restaurants. - Alkadikce

3 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.

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

This tastes great in my opinion

The pizza is way too oily. - Ilyas678

4 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

All of the people in my city are obsessed with it and it's going to get worse because they're opening up one here!

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

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

6 El Pollo Loco

Sounds like a coco restaurant

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

I think it means the crazy chicken...

Never heard of it either...

7 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.

The meat over there is disgusting and stale, most subs there don't really look appetising

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

8 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

9 Chipotle Mexican Grill

I hate this place, go back to mexico with your damn grill...

Waaay overpriced

10 Pollo Tropical

Never heard of this place...

The Contenders

11 Dunkin Donuts

Their coffees are so overrated. - Trollsfan536

They have the worst Bacon Egg and Cheese croissants.

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

I like it - USGC

12 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...

13 Chick-fil-A

Very average, but people eat it religiously. I don't get it, there are much better chicken options

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

Way better than McDonalds, but it really is overrated.

14 Habit Burger

Highly underrated. I love it though - SoloPotato

Underrated, if you ask me. - IceFoxPlayz

16 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 KFC

Everyone will hate me for this... I'm gonna say it...

McDonald's has better chicken than KFC.

The chicken at Mcdonalds isn't real. But I respect your opinion

KFC is love, KFC is life. - AGK

KFC is my favorite fast food resturant - adawddwadaw

sorry...no

This food is not good! I haven't had a good meal there in a long time, and I've been to Wendy's several times!

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

19 Whataburger
20 Krispy Kreme

Back at it again at Krispy Kreme - Lyricoh

21 Sonic

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

Sonic should not be on this list! It is a really great fast food place!

Umm sonic's food is the worst I have had a lot of food there and it was pretty nasty I think that there drinks are the best though

Microwaved frozen crap...

22 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...

23 Panda Express

Their chow mein is dry as hell. Want good noodles? Go to a Japanese fast food place named "Sarku Japan". Their noodles are the BEST, trust me. - IceFoxPlayz

24 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.

Tastes better than KFC, that's for sure. - IceFoxPlayz

How is this overrated? - MrCoolC

25 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!

26 Zaxby's

Never heard of them...

27 Shake Shack
28 Raising Cane's

Underrated, but I don't think they should charge for some sauce on the side. - IceFoxPlayz

Why is everyone tripping about basic overpriced chicken and fries

29 Papa John's

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

I love dipping my pizza in their garlic sauce. - IceFoxPlayz

30 Mom's Cafe

How is this overrated? I've never even heard of it ever

31 A&W
32 Applebee's

This is a list about fast food places so remove it please - DrayTopTens

33 Texas Roadhouse

This is a list about fast food places so remove it please - DrayTopTens

34 Hardee's

Whats hardee's?

35 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.

36 Jollibee
37 Potbelly Sandwich Shop
38 Carl's Jr

Hardee's > Carl's Jr in my opinion.

39 Jack's
