Zagat Now Rating Fast Food Joints

Print comment Post Comments
From the PR Newswire:

"This morning, Zagat revealed the results of its latest survey, covering 97 major fast food chains and 39 full service chains as voted on by 6,518 diners who ate at chain outlets on average 10.7 times per month. The survey respondents weighed in on everything from chicken and cheeseburgers to smoothies and seafood, separately rating each chain on the quality of its Food, Facilities and Service using Zagat's signature 30-point scale."

Some highlights:

Top Food, Mega-Chain category: Wendy's.

Best Value: McDonald's

Best Coffee: Starbucks

Best French Fries: McDonald's

Most Child-Friendly: Chuck E. Cheese

I take exception with only one of the ratings; I've had good food at Wendy's, McDonald's has done an excellent job with its value menu, and I am told Starbucks has excellent coffee (I am not a coffee drinker...)

But Chuck E. Cheese as the "Most Child-Friendly"? Well, that might warrant a second look from the folks at Zagat:

POSITION:  No positions in stocks mentioned.
