On the heels of Esquires Best Fast Food in America is, well, Details Best Fast Food in America! This list wasnt created by chefs, but rather by JJ Goode, who has written for New York Mag and knows a thing or two. The top 25 contains some classics (the double cheeseburger at White Castle, the fries at McDonalds, the Frosty at Wendys, the sandwich at Chick-fil-A, the spicy chicken at Popeyes, the Oreo blizzard at Dairy Queen), some cult faves (the fish taco at Baja Fresh, the Jamoca shake at Arbys, the curly fries at Jack in the Box, the caramel-apple empanada at Taco Bell, the double steak burger at Steak n Shake, the onion rings at Carls Jr., the cherry limeade and tater tots at Sonic), as well as some specialties from regional chains (the chili-cheese-slaw dog at the Varsity, the cheese curds at Culvers, the sandwich at Kellys Roast Beef, the carne guisada at Taco Cabana, the ham, egg, and cheese biscuit at Biscuitville, the inverted three-way at Skyline, and of course, In-N-Outs 2x4 Animal Style). Jack Donaghy would be pissed that the Blizzard got love over the McFlurry. And no Fatburger? We mightve added the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger at Wendys (best value), the McGriddle (best hangover helper), maybe the root-beer freeze from A, maybe the corn-dog nuggets from Nathans just for show anyone have other additions?
