Rank these in order....FF burger/FF Joints Mon, 11/12/12 2:22 PM (permalink)
Ok.admittedly it is a slow day and I actually had some "libation" left over from the Football games of the weekend.
 
I'm just wondering ........and i know there are several threads on similar topics.....how most of you would rank the following  in food (taste only!)
1. McDonalds
2.Burger King
3. Wendy's
4. KFC
5.Sonic
 
I know there are others............and if you wanna add an "A" for your fav..........Jakes, Five Guys, In and out, etc that is fine......but they are more limited geographically
 
You can just rank them 1-5.with one being the best...........or those of you with a scientific bent can give eacha 1-100 score.......with 100 obviously top

    I've only been to a Sonic maybe twice and it was a while ago, as we don't have them in this part of the country. And if you'd have asked me this 20 years ago or more, it would be very different.
     
    1. Sonic
    2. KFC
    3. Burger King
    4. McDonald's
    5. Wendy's

      5. Wendy's
       
      I hate pretty much everything Wendy's makes, outside of the frosty. And really...a cup of ice cream isn't worth going there, especially when Steak & Shake is closer. Steak & Shake, by the way, would be my #1 were it on the list.

        I've never been to Sonic although we do have them now in the Chicago suburbs.
         
        1. Burger King, maybe twice a year I like a Whopper.
        2. KFC but I never go there. Last time was after I had a tooth pulled and my mouth was still frozen. I needed mashed potatoes asap!
        3. Mc Donalds once or twice a year for a kids McNuggets and a $1 salad.
        4. Culver's. They have a great pot roast sandwich!
        5. Wendy's if on the road
         
        We eat mostly at local small places if we eat out. I am handicapped now and don't get out much so once and a while I like a good carry out meal. I do have friends who will pick up a lunch and come visit me now and then, hence going to a FF place.

            1. Sonic
            2. Rally's/Checkers
            3.Popeye's (over KFC)
            4. Wendy's
            5. Ain't even going to put BK on here, as I'd rather eat month old Mississippi road kill. So, KFC.
             
            I rather like Sonic's offerings and, on our recent road trip south we actually ate at 2, by choice. Love their cheddar peppers and Super Sonic Cheeseburger.  Rally's/Checkers is also decent. Far better than McD's.

                My #1 would be a Jumbo Jack from Jack in the Box, but that is no doubt because I can only get one every few years when I go to Arizona.  No JitB here in South Jersey.

                  I could definitely go for a Sourdough Jack. None in NY either.

                          I avoid Sonic because I don't like eating in my car & their ads with those two idiots sitting in their car drive me nuts.

                              I can't stand eating in the car, either. Some Sonics have tables outside, but you can only eat there in decent weather. As I seldom pass Sonics, I think I may have actually eaten at one twice. Maybe three times, but no more than that.

                                1.Whataburger, a local texas chain
                                2.Mcdonald's
                                3.Sonic We have two here in town, and for me when the weather is nice i can walk over there from the house, and sit at the table, and eat out side.This is the one on FM78, the one up at IH35 N and FM3009 I have to drive to.
                                4.Chester's a local San Antonio Chain,which brought back their poppyseed buns,Yeah.
                                5.Bracken Cafe, out in Bracken,Tx, just a little ways up the road from me.It's no chain, but their burgers are really good.
                                Haven't been to Burger King or Red Robin in years.

                                  I'm surprised to see how many ranked Sonic so high. About a year or so ago, we finally got a Sonic near by and I was NOT impressed at all. The only thing that was decent were the real fruit slushies and those aren't that good anymore either. With that being said,
                                  1. Burger King (whopper)
                                  2. McDonalds (fries)
                                  3. Wendys (chili)
                                  4. Sonic (slushies, happy hour 1/2 off)
                                  5. KFC (when all else fails)

                                  Forgot about A &W I might rank them #1

                                    We used to have Jack in the Box in Illinois almost 35 years ago. After sometime out drinking we used to love to go to the drive up and make some dumb (funny?) comment into Jack's head (the speaker)

                                      ChrisOC,
                                        Back in the 70's there was one in Willingboro on US 130. I used to drive the 25 or so miles each way now and then to get a "Greasy Taco Boost" !! No idea if it is still there???

                                            Fanatic,
                                            Burgerville is a regional/local chain in the Oregon/washington area. I have heard they are spreading out further, but haven't seen the details of that. maybe Mr Chips can give us the word.
                                            Burgerville does a good job... first Sweet Potatoes French fries I ever had.

                                                Sonic's jalapeno burger is really good, but in Ohio you can get one only at the Nelsonville store, and that's some 70 miles from here.

                                                  I second this!

                                                   
                                                   
                                                  Using the original 5 fast food chain choices given, I agree with the order given by tkitna and chewingthefat.
                                                   
                                                   
                                                  Picking my own top 5 fast food chains, I'd probably rank them as:
                                                   
                                                  1.  Five Guys
                                                  2.  Steak 'N' Shake
                                                  3.  Fatburger (They're only in 8 states.  Nearest to me is in MD)
                                                  4.  Chick-fil-A
                                                  5.  Hardees (for their biscuits and hot ham & cheese)
                                                   
                                                   
                                                  If very small, very localized fast food chains are allowed, I'd add:
                                                   
                                                  Walt's Roast Beef (5 locations in RI). 
                                                  Jake's Wayback Burger (In northern DE and northeastern MD)
                                                   
                                                   
                                                  EDIT:  I just looked up Jake's Wayback Burgers.  Apparently, they are not as small anymore.  There were just a handful of locations in northern DE a few years ago.  Now, they are in 15 states with about 60 locations.
