Don't patronize any of them, although once in a while Gunsmith will hit Chick-fil-A.

I was at Chick-fil-A 2 weeks ago - they're a cut above, with hostesses & a staff as pleasant as can be - founder Dan Cathy's influence is still very much felt.

Though I've been to Chipotle twice in my life, it's not a chain I frequent. We grab to-go sandwiches from Panera, about once every other month, hate Dunkin' Donuts weak brew & almost never go to pizza chains (we have our local favorite pizzerias). I'll drink McDonald's Premium roast coffee on the road, never use Burger King, Jack-in-the-Box or KFC, will grab Taco Bell 2-3 times a year & just grabbed a bowl of chili & some natural cut fries @ a Wendys in Binghampton, NY this past Sunday on the way home from a weekend conference in Ottawa, Canada.

I find it odd that McD's is at the bottom considering they're EVERYWHERE. Can't stand it, myself.

My ranking of those mentioned:

Chipotle
Chik-fil-A
Wendy's
Panera
Pizza Hut
McDonald's
Burger King
KFC
Taco Bell

Never ate at Dunkin' Donuts, Papa John's, or Jack-in-the-Box.

I don't believe JitB are in MN. Dunkin' Donuts was gone from MN for many years, and just started to come back recently. We prefer local pizza or decent quality frozen pizza.

I had my first Chik-fil-A a couple months ago, as they were a new entry into the MN market. The spicy chicken is glorious.

Chipotle
Chik-fil-A
Panera
Taco Bell
Dunkin' Donuts

For Pizza I always go small/local over chain...the quality always seems better.

It's like a steak joint...you get a better cut and a better cooked steak at a family run steak joint than some McChucklenuts franchise.

1. Chick-fil-A - Love, but as with all high calorie fast food, I can't eat it very often.
2. Chipotle - Never had.  Had Qdoba, which seems to be a lot like Chipotle.  OK.
3. Panera - Never got paying premium money for a lunch meat sandwich.  Maybe Subways if I want something healthier than a burger
4. Dunkin’ Donuts - Coffee only
5. Pizza Hut - OK, but prefer local places like Detellos or Bucas for my Italian fix
5. Papa John’s - Never had

The bottom six are:

1. McDonald’s - Why?
2. Jack in the Box - None here
3. Burger King - Why?
4. Taco Bell - Sometimes
5. Wendy’s - Usually, if I want a burger
6. KFC - Prefer Cubs deli.  Cheaper and better tasting.

Been meaning to try Smashburger, which is close.

My two-bits in blue...

1. Chick-fil-A - Love, but as with all high calorie fast food, I can't eat it very often. Don't look at calories, works for me!   :D
2. Chipotle - Never had.  Had Qdoba, which seems to be a lot like Chipotle.  OK.  I call the burritos they have "gut bombs", stay with ya a while, know what I mean?  Also, they are better Norovirus-free.   ;D
3. Panera - Never got paying premium money for a lunch meat sandwich.  Maybe Subways if I want something healthier than a burger.  Agreed, I do like Panera bread tough, but a bunch of libiots IIRC, so do not frequent much anymore.
4. Dunkin’ Donuts - Coffee only.  What's coffee?   :D
5. Pizza Hut - OK, but prefer local places like Detellos or Bucas for my Italian fix.  Yes, or Cosetta's, or Savoy Pizza, or local pizza places not big chains.  PLus, for lunch buffet I would rather go to Pizza Ranch than Pizza Hut.
5. Papa John’s - Never had.  Me neither, can't say I want to.

The bottom six are:

1. McDonald’s - Why?  As in why go?  Yeah, why?  Other than a quick breakfast why bother, for burgers I'd rather hit Culvers.
2. Jack in the Box - None here.  I think I ate at one out west though, not impressed.
3. Burger King - Why?  Same as above, rather hit Culvers.
4. Taco Bell - Sometimes.  Rarely, just OK.
5. Wendy’s - Usually, if I want a burger.   The ones by me appear to be getting worse quality-wise, not sure why, can't find good kids?  I'm passing on them now.
6. KFC - Prefer Cubs deli.  Cheaper and better tasting.  Again, Culvers has better fried chicken, most grocery store deli counters have better fried chicken.  I see no reason to go to these, and long long ago when I would hit one once in a while, sides are about as cold as the November wind!  No shmank you.

Been meaning to try Smashburger, which is close.

Qdoba and Chipotle are nothing alike. Trust me.

All I know is they both seem to be the kind of place you go, that, that, and that with a little of that, cafeteria style.

Culvers?  Heh.  Never had a burger, there.  My eyes never get past the tenderlions.  I probably would put that chain #1, just for those.
