Best Fast Food Chains in Canada

This list compiles the fast food chains in Canada that us Canadians love the most.
The Top Ten
1 Tim Horton's

There might not be a single Canadian that dislikes this chain. You wait and see, U.S.A. , you'll soon understand the love we have for this place.

This is EPIC! I love it so much and it's way better than Starbucks, where you have to pay so much for the same thing, but better at Tim Hortons

Love it more than anything else
Their food isn't greasy like the rest. They are fast with their service and Canadian

2 Mary Brown's

It's been a staple in many households in our province and in my house for many years! From birthdays to date nights to just a regular Tuesday when you're too tired to cook! It's locally owned and that's reason enough to win my vote!

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!

Mary Brown's has the juiciest and most tastiest chicken I have ever had! And I've tried a LOT of others!
I drove 2 hours just to get their chicken.
It's the first one here on Vancouver Island!
I was so excited! And I have no problem making the trek again and again!

3 Harvey's

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

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

Man, I'd sure love to move to Canada after reading this list.

4 A&W Canada

Ever in the States, look up the few locations and travel to the few areas that offer Dog-in-Suds still, you might like that experience greatly. Though some locations may be your typical newer layouts so check! Now, if you have an older car what those huge gaps when trays could be brought to you and hooked on the outside of your door? Though, I'm not sure if they still do that? In the 1960s we had both and both were great! Sadly I could spend a day listing all the local and regional chains that were fantastic but now are gone! Still others are around, just not close enough in our area anymore! Funny though we have the only Wienerschnitzel east of the Mississippi! Next closest, Texas! Also, you might enjoy a south of Chicagoland favorite called Boz hot dogs, not known for their drinks. Most of us call it Bozo's because of the round clown face that looks like an O filled in and is part of the name! They add celery salt to there Chicago dogs, also ask for ketchup if you care for it. Myself, don't care for the salt but many love it. There not top notch looking establishments but roadside fast food. Again, look up on line.

5 New York Fries

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.

6 Pizza Nova

Can't get there very often but it's so much better than other options.

7 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.

A better sub than the competitors.

Like a better, Canadian subway.

8 Pizza Pizza

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.

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.

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

9 Hero Certified Burgers

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

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

Best post toronto marathon veggie burger.

10 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.

Love the filling choices, not your same old, same old. Not a huge bun to smother your fillings. Better for you, great service at all locations I've been to.

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

The Contenders
11 Wendy's Wendy's is an American international fast food restaurant chain founded by Dave Thomas on November 15, 1969, in Columbus, Ohio. The company moved its headquarters to Dublin, Ohio, on January 29, 2006.

Best burgers and have great selection of drinks! Deserves number 1.

Great fast service

Chili for days.

12 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 a location in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1955, Ray Kroc, a businessman, joined the company as a franchise... read more

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

I's McDonald's. Speaks for itself

13 KFC KFC, until 1991 known as Kentucky Fried Chicken, is an American fast food restaurant chain that specializes in fried chicken. Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, it is the world's second-largest restaurant chain (as measured by sales) after McDonald's, with almost 20,000 locations globally in 123 countries and territories as of December 2015. The chain is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, a restaurant company that also owns the Pizza Hut and Taco Bell chains.

It will always be my favorite. Has the best chicken in the history of earth.

The colonel, enough said.

It is the best!

14 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 in 1954, its two Miami-based franchisees David Edgerton and James McLamore purchased the company and renamed it "Burger King". Over the next half-century, the company would change hands four times, with its third set of owners, a partnership of TPG Capital, Bain Capital, and Goldman Sachs Capital Partners, taking it public in 2002. In late 2010, 3G Capital of Brazil acquired a majority stake more.

Love the whoppers

Original pan pizza.

17 Popeyes

Best fried chicken

18 BeaverTails

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

Haven't had one of these in years but OMG so good.

Fried pieces of heaven.

19 Pizza Delight

Love Pizza Delight pizza...nothing else like it.

Best food ever

20 Thai Express

Awesome stir fry

21 Peter's Drive-In

I would eat this for the rest of my life without complaining or getting sick of it, it is so delicious!

Consistent good burgers, Huge! Share the small fries! Nice staff!

22 La Belle Province

This is one of the best breakfasts you will ever have.
Extra plates were necessary for the sides with my omelet

23 Chocolat Flavoris

Best ice cream anywhere

24 Piatto's Pizzeria & Enoteca

If you want true Napleon pizza, this is the best place to go, next to having it in Italy. St. John's, Halifax, Charlotte Town, Mocton, Cambridge, Cavendish, all Canadian locations.
