List Rules The best fast food and fast casual chain restaurants

Be it because of a craving for a greasy burger, a need for a hangover cure or simply a needed meal on the run, millions of people eat fast food each day, but which are the top fast food brands of all? That is where you can be the judge folks. Add your list of the best fast food brands and vote for your favorite quick-service eatery.

Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King and Taco Bell are just a few of the largest fast food chains in the world, but the jury is out on which is actually the best. Some may even argue that regional joints like In-N-Out Burger would take the cake while others would debate that the healthier options, like Subway and Panera Bread, are where it's at.

So tell us fast food lovers, which of the top fast food restaurants are the best and why? Which artery-clogging grease famous fast food factory rules and which would you never visit even if it's the last thing on Earth?
