The latest issue of Consumer Reports tackles the weighty issue of the best and worst chain restaurants out there competing for your dining dollar. Here’s a quick look at the best and worst fast food/fast casual chains in America.
In the burger category, the best burger in America is In-N-Out Burger. Unfortunately, In-N-Out is only available in Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, and Utah. Other close contenders include Habit Burger Grill, Burgerville, WhataBurger, and Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburger, and who is in last place? It’s a tie between McDonald’s and Burger King. In Mexican food, the top spot went to Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill, and Chipotle came in a close second. The lowest rating went to Taco Bell, and in chicken, Chick-fil-A was No. 1. Last place went to KFC, which got one of the lowest scores of any fast food restaurant in any category. The worst fast food/fast casual restaurant of all was voted Sbarro.
