Sbarro has gained the title of America’s least favorite fast food chain according to a new survey by Consumer Reports. The mall food court standard was ranked lowest out of 65 chains on the list. According to survey takers, the quality of food at fast food chains is more important than location and convenience, and Sbarro did not live up to consumer’s standards.The Italian chain filed for bankruptcy two years ago.
Other well-known chains that earned low marks included Taco Bell, McDonald’s, KFC, and Au Bon Pain. The highest-ranking chains on the list included some longtime favorites, like In-N-Out Burger, and restaurants that offer higher-quality ingredients, like Chipotle. Chick-fil-A also ranked first in the chicken category of the survey.
Survey-takers also ranked their favorite fast-casual restaurants, and Chipotle won the top spot of that list. Other national favorites included Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Jersey Mike’s Subs, and Panera Bread.
