What’s your favorite fast food item? Everyone has one, even if you might be a tad ashamed to admit it. The Ringer recently finished Last Meal on Earth: The End of Eating, its weeklong content package devoted to food, food, food. To close out the week, the Ringer staff decided to settle, once and for all, the top-100 absolute best fast-food items in America — no easy feat.
The Ringer determined its rankings through a two-step process. First, they established a list of more than 100 nominees, then held a general election (with condiments disqualified from contention) to come up with the 100 best, in order.
Here are the top 10 favorite fast food items in America, are they yours, too?
10. Five Guys: Bacon Cheeseburger
Nothing uses bacon quite like Five Guys’ bacon cheeseburger. The deliciousness is real.
9. McDonald’s: McFlurry
The McFlurry is a fan favorite, but it’s topped a few frozen fast food treats.
8. Wendy’s: Frosty
What makes a Frosty even better? Dipping French fries in it, y’all.
7. Dairy Queen: Blizzard
Turn it upside down all you want, it won’t slide!
6. Arby’s: Curly Fries
The seasoning on Arby’s curly fries are like angel dust.
5. Chick-fil-A: Chicken Sandwich
Chick-fil-A built their entire business around the chicken sandwich, and it shows.
4. Popeyes: Chicken
Sorry KFC, Popeye’s is the universal fan favorite when it comes to buckets o’drumsticks.
3. McDonald’s: Fries
McDonald’s fries are a timeless classic and for good reason, they use just the right amount of salt to pair well with your ice-cold, fizzy Coca-Cola.
2. In-N-Out: Double-Double
Ah, Animal Style. This would not be a favorite fast food item list without In-N-Out gracing the top three.
1. Chick-fil-A: Waffle Fries
Chick-fil-A pulls out an entire value meal on this list with its chicken sandwich and waffle fries. We know what we’re ordering next time.
