From a burger paired perfectly with fries and a drink, to a pizza loaded with all of the best toppings, fast food is a go-to meal option for Americans because of its convenience – even though it isn’t the healthiest option.
A recent study from CashNetUSA identified the top-rated fast food chains in every state.
For California, In-N-Out Burger landed on top.
Researchers determined the rankings by identifying fast-food restaurants that served burgers, pizza, doughnuts, chicken or Mexican food in each state. They also analyzed the ratings they received on Google Maps, the website said.
Results were categorized by state and cuisine.
Chick-fil-A was ranked as the top fast-food restaurant in 34 U.S. states. The study found that Californians consider Chick-fil-A to be the best place to get chicken.
The study also found that in California, Krispy Kreme is the most popular spot for doughnuts, El Pollo Loco was top-rated for Mexican food and Marco’s Pizza was No. 1 for a slice of pizza.
