It’s been the source of endless debate: which fast food chain has the best burger and fries? According to a YouGov poll, over a third of Americans say McDonald's MCD +0.36% has the best fries. The same can’t be said for the Big Mac though, which is trailing in the popularity stakes.
The battle for the best burger is split between Burger King and Five Guys, garnering 15 percent of the vote. McDonald’s beef burgers trail some way behind with just 7 percent but the superiority of their fries (34 percent) is something nobody else comes close to matching. Burger King fries were voted the best by just 10 percent while 9 percent favored Five Guys.
Fast food is big business in the United States, generating some $191 billion in 2013.
