Who serves the biggest, best fast-food breakfast in the United States? Unsurprisingly, different regions will have different favorites, but a few choices on this map really surprised us nonetheless. Using data collected from Foursquare Swarm, Business Insider looked into the most popular fast-food breakfasts in America.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, McDonald’s is No. 1 by far, taking the top spot in 49 of the 50 states. Turns out, Oklahomans really, really love their Sonic Drive-In.
After knocking off the obvious top spot, BI put together this nifty map of the (second) most popular fast-food breakfasts in the U.S.:
Chick-fil-A dominates the Southeast, along with outliers Utah and Colorado, taking 12 states.
Tied for first-place is Panera Bread, with another 12 states, packed into the Northeast and parts of the Midwest.
Sonic Drive-In comes in next as six states’ favorite – New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi – through the South and Midwest.
Next best with four states is West-Coast favorite Jack in the Box, taking Washington, Idaho, Nevada and California.
From here on out, though, it’s unlikely you’ve heard of these chains unless you’re a regional native.
Upper Midwestern neighbors South Dakota and Minnesota share a love for Perkins Restaurant & Bakery.
Wyoming prefers their on-the-go breakfast from Old Chicago. North Dakota goes for Hardee’s. Wisconsinites can’t get enough of their Culver’s Restaurant; and out in West Virginia, nothing beats a Bob Evans breakfast.
What do you think? Do you fall in line with the rest of your state’s breakfast taste?
