The Top Ten

1 McDonald's 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 more.

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.

Know that if you eat here for a week, you get extremely ill yet addicted. True story.

mcdonalds is not overrated its underrated.
It gets way to much hate
about a 1/3 of the people I know hate mce dees

The Megadeth of fast food restaurants. - Alkadikce

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

Not bad but a bit overrated, I much rather would go to a local buisness or order pizza hut - Alapisboy

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

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 more.

Burgers were mediocre and fries were garbage

ree - s0ramble

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

7 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 more.

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

Acidently voted - Trollsfan536

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

11 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

12 Sbarro

Cardboard pizza

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

13 Chick-fil-A

Way better than McDonalds, but it really is overrated.

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

This deserves to be overrated - Granton8ter05

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

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

Great, but unfortunately overrated.

21 Sonic

Microwaved frozen crap...

22 White Castle

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

23 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!

25 Popeye's Chicken

How is this overrated? - MrCoolC

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

26 Zaxby's

33 Hardee's

Whats hardee's?

34 Papa John's

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

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.
