The Most Popular Fast Food Breakfasts in Every State

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.

Subway is a favorite in two states on opposite ends of the country - Vermont and Montana - as is Burger King, leading in Nebraska and Maine.

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.

Those living out in the islands of Hawaii start their days with Zippy's, and if you've spent any time in Texas, you'll know that out here, Whataburger is king.

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?
