Burger King and Five Guys both received 15% of the votes of the surveyed U.S. residents. Wendy's ranks second with 14% of votes, followed by Wendy's and In-N-Out with 14% and 9 %, respectively. McDonald's, which is favored by 7% of the respondents, is only ranked 5th.

When it comes to fries, McDonald's is ranked first with 34% respondents favoring the brand, a huge difference from Burger King (10%) and Fast Guys (9%) which are placed second and third, respectively.

Nathan's Famous is ranked lowest in both categories, garnering 1% of votes for best fries and zero votes for best burger.

For breakfast, McDonald's tops the list with 17% of votes. Burger King is a close second with 16%. However, for New Yorkers Burger King offers the best breakfast menu with 19% of them choosing the brand.

YouGov said New York often reveals a different result compared to majority of Americans. While Subway ranks first in healthiest food chain category in the overall survey with 19% of votes, New Yorkers choose Chipotle as the healthiest, 18% of them opting for the fast-casual restaurant.

Georgia-based Chick-Fil-A is favored by 11% of the respondents as the best chain in North America. New York once again shows different result due to having only one Chick-Fil-A store in the city.
