Top Ten Most Popular Fast Food Restaurants

Just to be clear. A fast food restaurant is a restaurant were you don't wait long to receive your food. The definition is in the name. It doesn't necessarily have to serve fries and fried chicken.
The Top Ten

I live in Canada and I was used to think McDonald's was Canadian because their is always a tiny maple leaf in the center. Now I know it is a U.S company after doing research like 5 years ago. And I discovered it is widely common mostly in USA. No wonder why Americans are stereotyped as fat lazy people.

You don't know what it feels like,walking into a great mess of burgers,fries and chicken nuggets,babies crying left and right for not getting the toy they wanted,all toys knocked down at the display,kids gazing at the plastic minion toys,adults...are usually just overweight or have 3-7 kids,screams of horror,freckles cover the squeaky sounding counter guy,iPads with dreadful smudges,the activity books,poor thing,forcefully ripped of the wall and leaving the too part behind,snd who ever saw a crayon in the crayon box? And of course,you cannot find one clean seat and you end up sitting near some family with five kids who won't stop eating while staring into your soul.Then you leave,it's not over.Little kids scream as their minion balloon floats away.It's a horrible experience.

But the food is decent.

Ah yes,KFC,the home of chicken and other stuff,the smell of chicken fills your nostrils,some kids crying,cheering,making annoying sounds,the staff actually wear gloves you noticed,while looking at the customer in the front line deciding if they want fries with that,it always ends up yes.The food is nice but you sometimes get the occasional hair.Walking out,you aren't as disgusted as usual.It was ok.

I hate to see McDonald's as number one on popular or best fast food lists, but Subway should be number one and it is over a trillion times better than that McNasty's pile of bull$h1+!

My favorite fast food place, but it doesn't change the fact that McDonalds is the most popular/successful

Subway,we're you choose the ingredients and get the same thing each time but having the urge to try something different.Customers taking forever to choose,especially kids.Thank god the place is not a mess,no babies,a mature fast food.The counter people are usually from India or something.When you exit this place,you feel...pleasantly superprised.
