Which fast food chain has the WORST drive through service? The BEST?

I was inspired to post this by the hellishly long wait I endured at our local Sonic drive through the other day. And this is pretty well the norm for this particular Sonic (which is probably why I frequent it so, erm, infrequently), and I suspect the reason is that I've never once seen an adult on the premises (I refer to this as the Dairy Queen Phenomenon). But Sonic's not the worst drive through 'round these parts. Not by a long shot.
No, that decidedly dubious honor goes to none other than Steak 'n Shake. And not just the one in my town, but, literally, every single Steak 'n Shake I've ever been to. We're talking waits approaching 30 minutes. When yours is the only vehicle in the queue. (And, for the record, the dine in experience is no less hair-pullingly awful.)
On a lighter note: The best drive through, 'round these parts, anyway, would have to be either Wendy's or McDonald's. At either place, the queue could seem to be off-puttingly long, but by and large, you're through in ten minutes or less (most of the time less).
So, how about where all of you live? What's the best and what's the worst?
