Top 5 favorite fast food restaurants

I was reading on business insider about the most popular fast food restaurants in the country which got me thinking about my favorite restaurants. According to them, the top 5 most popular fast food restaurants in the country are:
5. Burger King
4. Wendy's
3. Starbucks (how this counts, I'll never know)
2. Subway
1. McDonald's (absolutely no surprise there)



So what are your top 5 fast food restaurants? For me:
5. Whataburger
4. Subway
3. Spangles
2. Chick-fil-a
1. McDonald's

Hate almost all fast food places, but I admit that I love Taco Bell! I will also eat a White Castle cheeseburger with onion rings and an occasional sausage Egg McMuffin.

I don't eat at fast food places often, but here goes ...

1. Culver's
2. Starbucks, since it counts
3. Noodles & Company
4. Subway
5. Panera Bread


I don't know if Noodles and Panera count since they are slower than drive-up fast food.

According to Business Insider, Panera counts. It was number 13. Then again, I'm not sure about some of the other places that they listed and whether or not I would classify them as fast food (Pizza Hut, Starbucks).

In considered including Panera (called STL Bread Co here), but left it off the list since it's kind of slow and has a different feel than a typical FF place if you eat inside. Ditto for Steak N Shake. But, I suspect it would fit the definition I probably should have included Qdoba though.

Burgers and shakes. I had never heard of them until I met my husband. He is from Kansas and they are only up there. Now, whenever we visit his family, we have to eat there.

Oh yum! I used to go to the Taylor St location back in the 70's & 80's. To this day I still order my beef dipped with both hot & sweet. I also really like Portobella's for Chicago fast food places.
