Fast meals is fantastic. There might be nothing on this world that higher fits the munchies. It’s salty. It’s fried. It’s product of the most cost effective elements, and served 200 occasions a day, with none semblance of care.
Unfortunately, the right quick meals restaurant doesn’t appear to exist but. Sure, there are locations that do nice issues, however there actually isn’t one spot that does the perfect model of all the things on the menu. Let’s check out the extensive world of quick meals, and verify in on who does what greatest. We current The Fast Food Awards.
Best Burger: In-N-Out
Yeah, okay, California man coming by means of. I can already see half of you angrily slamming your laptops closed or hurling your telephones out of the closest window.
Here’s the factor: In-N-Out makes the most effective quick meals burger. It’s not even a debate; their elements are leagues forward of each different chain. Remember what I stated about being poorly put collectively with out care? This magnificence proper right here is the one spot that isn’t like that. Nothing frozen. Nothing pretend. The high quality is what separates In-N-Out from the remaining. When you place your order right here, you realize precisely what you’re going to get. With most chains, you’re rolling the cube, hoping your burger seems to be just like the business. Not at In-N-Out.
The high quality of this burger is unequalled — however add to that the truth that the meals is a few of the least expensive within the recreation, what’s there left to say? The Double-Double is the costliest factor on the menu, and it’s not even $four. Unbelievable.
Best Fries: Rally’s / Checkers
“Wahh wahh wahh I’m a baby and I wanted Shake Shack or McDonald’s to win this one”, is what you’re in all probability saying proper now. Rally’s / Checkers (it’s a Carl’s Jr. / Hardee’s state of affairs, with a unique identify relying on the place you reside) are kings amongst kings right here, with Frenchies which are completely fried, completely crispy, and most significantly, coated in secret (magic) seasoning.
Truly, no quick meals fry comes near what the seasoning scientists at Rally’s / Checkers are doing.
Best Shake, if We’re Calling any Sort of Frozen Dairy Drink a Shake: Wendy’s
It’s not likely a milkshake, technically, however neither is Shake Shack’s frozen custard and other people love the hell out of that one. In-N-Out’s milkshakes are effective. The neon-green barf that Mickey D’s calls the Shamrock Shake is an absolute nightmare. Jack within the Box does a good Oreo shake. Steak ‘n Shake, which I considered, is more of a sit-down restaurant and doesn’t actually matter.
The actual runner up right here is Chick-fil-A as a result of theirs tastes probably the most like ice cream they usually put a bit of cherry on prime of it, which is simply such a terrific concept. Sonic does that too, however the shakes aren’t fairly Frosty degree.
At the top of the day, the Frosty is a grand slam. It tends to remain thick longer than most quick meals shakes, and the flavour is tough to beat. It’s too dangerous Wendy’s fries are horrible, as a result of ya boy likes to dunk fries in a shake. Nobody’s good, I assume.
Best at Being Super Mean to People on Twitter: Wendy’s, once more
Not actually related within the tastebud world, however rattling. Wendy’s is chilly as hell.
Best Breakfast: McDonald’s
There shouldn’t be any debate on this one. Egg McMuffins are O-U-T-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G. McGriddles, doubly so. If you’re not conversant in the fashionable marvel that’s the McGriddles (necessary to notice right here that a single sandwich, for some purpose, known as a McGriddles), that you must familiarize your self directly. The wizards at McDonald’s have forged some darkish magic and injected syrup nuggets into pancakes, after which used them because the bun to carry a breakfast sandwich. What a time to be alive.
Best Forgotten Spokesperson: Del Taco Dan
Remember that little dude Del Taco Dan? He was all the time moving into loopy antics. What a man.
Best at Not Giving Even One Single Fuck: Taco Bell
It’s hilarious that the majority quick meals spots (McDonald’s particularly) attempt to trick you into considering that their meals is recent and organically farmed and all that nonsense. It’s foolish.
Taco Bell, then again, doesn’t give a rattling about that. Other chains are out right here telling you simply how recent their lettuce is, and T-Bell is like, “WE WRAPPED A BURRITO IN A QUESADILLA AND WE CALLED IT A QUESARITO, JUST EAT IT”.
Way to cater to your demo, Taco Bell.
Best Nuggies: Chick-fil-A
An actual bummer to offer a shout out to the trash firm that’s Chick-fil-A, however look, the nuggies are unimaginable. For a spot that makes a usually overrated hen sandwich, they positive know precisely what they’re doing in terms of the chew measurement stuff. On prime of all of it, they’re low cost because the dickens — they’ll hook you up with $12 nuggies for $5.95 — and that Chick-fil-A sauce is undeniably good.
Widest Variety: Jack within the Box
I’m unsure who’s answerable for Jack within the Box’s menu, however wow, it’s far and wide. Jalapeño poppers? Tacos? Egg rolls? Fajita pitas? Y’all have to perhaps cool it a bit.
Most Secretly Overpriced: Carl’s Jr.
Have you ever eaten at Carl’s Jr.? It’s loopy costly. Those dickheads have burgers that run upwards of $7, which is way from acceptable. If I’m paying over $10 for a burger, I’m gonna get a a lot higher-quality burger. Fast meals sometimes shouldn’t value you greater than $10. Carl’s Jr. is making an attempt to squeeze the blood from a stone with these costs.
Best Happy Hour: Sonic
Pretty positive no different quick meals joint has completely satisfied hour. That’s about all there’s to that.
Best Fried Chicken: Wingstop
I need to be clear that I’m not speaking about that wack little Pizza Hut spinoff Wing Street. Let’s get that out of the best way proper fast.
Honorable point out to the Shake Shack fried hen sando, which just about stole it. Unfortunately, Wingstop is simply nice, and the sheer number of rubs, flavors, and sauces they’re working with give them a bigtime edge above the remainder of the competitors.
Best at Trying to Convince Us it’s a Real Place Even Though Nobody Has Ever Seen One: Long John Silver’s
I’m not totally positive Long John Silver’s is an actual place. You might imagine you’ve seen one, however I might reckon that’s an implanted reminiscence from an extraterrestrial being.
Best Pizza: Domino’s
Domino’s, in fact, isn’t good. But who else would win this award? Pizza Hut? Little Caesars? Papa J’s? Domino’s is about the most effective quick meals pizza you will get, and their just lately revamped crust (they principally simply put garlic in it) is pure hearth. A scorching, recent Domino’s pizza — particularly after a joint or six — is considered one of life’s nice pleasures.
Best Sub: Jersey Mike’s
J Mike’s is an effective sandwich, no two methods about it. The meat, recent off that industrial slicer, is best than virtually each quick meals sandwich. It’s definitely higher than the recent rubbish they serve at Subway and Quiznos. Jimmy John’s and Firehouse Subs are strong, however they will’t fairly edge Jersey Mike’s when it comes to ingredient high quality. “Mike’s Way” (onions, lettuce, tomato, oil & vinegar, and spices) is a terrific sandwich pre-set. And to develop into widespread with out providing mayo & mustard as the usual? What braveness! What imaginative and prescient!
Best Commercial Narrator: Arby’s
Ving Rhames does all of the Arby’s narration. It’s about the one good factor Arby’s has going for it. I want Ving Rhames was the voice of each quick meals chain.
Best Spaghetti: Jollibee
Jollibee, the Filipino fast-food chain, sells spaghetti. By sheer default of there being nowhere else on Earth you will get quick meals spaghetti in a drive-thru, Jollibee wins this one.
Best Orange Chicken, in any Restaurant, Fast Food or Not: Panda Express
The purpose you’ve by no means had good orange hen at one other Chinese restaurant — in addition to the truth that it’s honky meals — is as a result of no one needs to compete with the last word supremacy that Panda Express boasts. Their orange hen is just the dankness, and also you’re not gonna discover something higher.
Best Guilty Pleasure That You Know In Your Heart is Absolutely Disgusting: Subway’s Tuna
I want I didn’t just like the tuna from Subway. It comes out of an ice cream scoop. They unfold it on the bread with a butter knife. Everything about it’s gross.
But rattling, it’s weirdly good.
