The best fast food milkshakes are the yummiest, thickest and creamiest frozen ice cream drinks our favorite fast food restaurants have to offer. From the classic chocolate malt milkshake perfected to those choices that offer delicious ingredients, like peanut butter and bacon, these best fast food milkshakes are the best around.

Unsurprisingly, fast food restaurants that specialize in frozen treats earned higher rankings on this list of the top fast food milkshakes. Places like Cold Stone Creamery, with their cherry cheesecake, cake, lotta caramel and milk & cookies milkshakes, Dairy Queen, with their hot fudge malt, frozen hot chocolate and caramel cheesequake royal milkshakes, and Steak 'n Shake, with their Hershey's Special Dark, tropical banana and mint cookies 'n cream milkshakes, are among the favorites.

That's not to say that standard fast food locations, many of which also offer our most favorite fast food chicken sandwiches, don't have some delicious shakes as well. Fans love the options at In-n-Out Burger, Chick-fil-A, Jack in the Box, Sonic, Fatburger and Carl's Jr., plus the classic choices like the McDonald's shamrock shake, Arby's jamocha shake and the Wendy's Frosty.
