The Year's Best Fast-Food Chain

The Year's Best Fast-Food Chain

Well you voted and now the results are in: As part of our Best of 2008 coverage we asked you what your favorite fast-food restaurant is. Although there was no landslide win, the majority (24 percent) chose Subway. The popular sandwich chain has had a busy year — it's introduced flatbread sandwiches, signed on Michael Phelps as spokesman, and partnered with Starbucks.

We love the soft, doughy rolls filled with sandwich fixings, but after much deliberation, we've chosen Arby's as our editor's choice. When it comes to fast food, if fries aren't involved we're not interested. Arby's curly fries are the ultimate guilty pleasure. We love pairing them with the chain's incredible roast beef and cheddar sandwich and topping it off with creamy horseradish sauce. Do you eat at Arby's?

I like Arby's and I'm not ashamed to say it :) I like the chicken & curly's what I usually get.

Ew! I have eaten at Arby's a total of ONE time. And I will NEVER eat there again. I ended up spending that night leaning over the toilet from food poisoning.

I actually really like Arby's. It's weird because I really don't do fast food.

No. I think the last time I ate at Arby's it was over twenty years ago. I'm serious. I don't eat at fast food chains. I may buy a soda, but that's it.

chick-fil-a is way better than both subway and arby's by about a trillion times! Most of their menu is really healthy and all of it is delicious.

Gross! The last time I ate at Arby's was in 1996. I got sick after eating there a couple of times, and that was enough to convince me to never go back. Arby's sauce definitely does not taste just as good the second time.

I think it is nasty, but then again I don't eat fast food, unless I am forced to.

It's funny how polarizing Arby's is. Arby's is like a guilty pleasure for me with the curly fries and the beef n cheddar. I probably would have picked Arby's in the poll because I don't care for the other options. Whataburger is my fast food chain of choice for burgers and chicken tenders.

When I used to eat fast food I loved Arby's curly fries! I haven't eaten fast food in 6-7 years though. Sometimes it's tempting to eat fast food because my boyfriend eats it every now and then (esp. Wendy's), but I've gone this long without it and I think I'll keep it that way. This definitely has me craving curly fries though... haha

Why was Subway even a choice if you don't consider it to be fast food because it doesn't have fries? this some sort of sponsored Arby's commercial or something?
