The Year's Best Fast Food Restaurant

The Year's Best Fast Food Restaurant

As part of this year's Best of 2009 coverage, we wanted to know which fast food restaurant was your favorite. McDonald's came out on top, with more than a quarter (28 percent) of the vote, narrowly edging out south of the border rival Taco Bell. We are right there with you — there's a reason why McDonald's is the world's leading fast food chain, and it's also our pick for the year's best fast food joint.

We've never been able to stay away from those Egg McMuffins and hash browns, but in 2009, the burger chain took things to the next level with its McCafé menu and generously sized Angus Third Pounders, which received glowing reviews in our taste test. What do you love to order at Mickey D's?

I don't trust their meat anymore but I still give in to their chicken nuggets; it brings me back. With that said, I think Wendy's and In-N-Out are infinitely better.

I'm not sure when I last ate at McDonald's.

Are you guys getting sponsored by McDonald's?? What's with all the McDonald's related articles today? McDonald's is gross. I don't like to eat there.

Yuck :P I'd rather eat Play-Doh, it tastes about the same but with much less oil!

Oh and I think McDonald's tastes totally different here in France than in the USA. I have had it 3 times in the USA and each time had to run to the bathroom...is it too much grease? I don't know but it cleans me out...so embarrassing. Chick-Fil-A is amazing but the no-Sundays because of being Christians things makes me frustrated!! I love their chicken sandwiches and lemonade but HAAAATE their bad version of waffle fries (which were the original pomme frites invented here in France). They are soggy and fatty. Eww!

People are so funny about admitting they eat at McDo. That said, I love their cheeseburgers...the small ones. They are my fave when I have a McDo moment. My son loves their nuggets and bbq sauce but HATES the fries. He has nuggets with apple sauce and yogurt...that's his happy meal and I'm pretty okay with that.

Ugh, NOTHING. I hate McDonalds and I only eat there if I'm on a road trip with my husband and he wants to stop. But he hates it almost as much as I do, so we usually opt for Burger King or Subway. If I have a choice, I always pick Subway. They have a lot more healthy options than McD's does.

Their coffee is really good. Every time I am at the airport, I skip past the always way too long Starbucks line and get a cup of joe from McD, at a fraction of the price to boot.
