Consumer Reports finished tallying the results of a national fast food survey and the results may be a shocker.

The golden arches may not be the gold standard for fast food. In fact, it’s just the opposite, according to a Consumer Reports survey.

McDonald’s burgers as the worst in the U.S., according to results of a reader poll released Wednesday by the product testing organization. One of the best? The regional chain In-N-Out Burger, as well as The Habit Burger Grill and Culver’s. The other best include chains like Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Smashburger and Fuddruckers.

Also, I have no idea how 5 Guys ranked so high. It's nothing special. I could make that burger at home.

Obligatory: This thread is making me hungry.

I think it's the sheer number of toppings, as the patties are overcooked.

Seriously, if you don't eat it immediately there, it dries out within 10 mins.

I'd rather go to Wendy's for a take out burger.

Their fries are good. British style - with vinegar.

I ate a McD's Quarter Pounder for the first time in 20 years.

Ugh.

The Habit's BBQ bacon cheeseburger is marginally better than a double-double from In N Out.

But 5 Guys is so expensive; for the money I'll just make my own.

The only healthy thing in mcdonalds is sugar free iced tea and even that should be approached with caution...

The Habit is some good shit.

McDonald's should try using meat rather than the unidentifiable substance that's on their burgers. I remember their burgers being really good in the 1970s, but maybe my memory is shot.

I haven't done fast food for a long time now, not sure how they are now. We've had a 5 guys for a while but I've never tried them...too much of a crowd/wait for my taste. There are several local options here that do burgers very well, when I do opt for red meat I'll choose them.

Dogs eating shit and dead animals and vomiting on a grill would produce a more flavorful hamburger.

MCD is my grandson's favorite place to go for the following reasons:

I contend the number one reason is that the happy meal has a higher sugar content.

3) the frys

Just curious - do you ever look at the red wavy lines under the words when you type them? The wavy red line is the spell-checker. If you paid attention to that, you would see that "frys" is not a word. Fries however, is a word.

That would be great. Even spelling at a first grade level would be an improvement for you. And the thing is, there's no excuse for it. The computer does all the work for you. All you have to do is pay attention to the spell checker TELLING you that you typed a word which doesn't exist. What's so fucking hard about that? Are you really that goddamned lazy?

I remember when McDonald's was something you actually wanted to eat. Up until "Super sized me, educated the Executives, that that could feed people pink slime and they would still eat it. and take everything that made McDonald's, McDonald's and screw it up.
But hey they got carrot sticks!

Their Chicken nuggets used to be one life's greatest simple guilty pleasures. Now they are one of life's most disgusting experiences.

McDonald's should be awarded for having the most sustainable burger and fries. Neither one will change appearance or decompose after being left out in the open air for five years and possibly forever...

Let's be serious. The McDos people just skin and nuke rats in microwaves and put them on cheap buns with too much mustard and catchup. The few times I've been to McDos the employees were ostentatiously jacking their noses into the grill and Fry-O-Lator.

I knew Purvian people who would actually run to McDonald's to buy a couple large order of Fench fries to garnish their Lomo saltado when they would make it. By all accounts, McDonald's fries were the standard of a great French fry. Their regular hamburgers and their Original McNuggets were two items on the menu, that were pretty consistently good, from store to store, no matter how bad their promotional limited time offer food items they made were.

What the hell is a purvian? or a lomo saltado? Even by your standards of incomprehensibility that's beyond me.

It sorta is, it's sliced beef, anything from cut up rump roast(tough) to strips of either skirt steak or cubes of ribeye or strip steak, sauteed with onions, tomatoes and Peruvian peppers.
When it is done it is served with rice, and crispy french fries are then garnished over the top. Yes French fries. It is the only single food item that they use fried potatoes. Well I take that back there is salchipapas.
