Here's What Americans Chose as Their Favorite Fast Food Restaurant

If there's one thing Americans love, it's fast food. But which of America's many fast food options do they prefer? Well according to a new survey, it's about all about the chicken.

The American Customer Satisfaction Index found that Americans favorite fast food restaurant is Chick-Fil-A for the third consecutive year. The Georgia based chicken chain received an 87 out of 100 rating for customer satisfaction, easily beating out the second place finisher Panera Bread, that only received 81. Papa John's, Pizza Hut and Subway all finished tied for third with 80 out of 100.

The ACSI uses several factors including order accuracy, food quality, cleanliness and variety and surveyed over 250,000 customers about 280 different fast food companies. The ACSI noted that Chik-Fil-A's food quality is what really made it stand out among competitors.

It should also be noted that while Papa John's, Pizza Hut and Subway all finished tied for third place at 80, the average score for fast food restaurants was also 80. So they're not all that impressive. 

Longtime American favorite McDonald's scored a paltry 69 out of 100 in their rating.

If there's anything to learn from this report, it's that more fast food restaurants need to copy Chik-Fil-A and offer waffle fries.

When former Dallas Police Officer Amber Guyger was sentenced to 10 years in prison for the murder of Botham Jean on October 3, 2019, the public reaction was a combination of relief and exasperation. The case starkly reflects the flaws in the current landscape of American criminal justice: Guyger, who is white, killed Jean, a 26-year-old black man, while he was relaxing after work in his living room. Guyger invoked Texas’ "Stand Your Ground" law, claiming she was justifiably scared for her life when she wandered into his unlocked home after work, mistaking it for hers in the same apartment complex.
