3) Jake’s Wayback

4) Five Guys

Hate me, I do not care. I know all of you generic fast food eaters are going to be mad at me. Before you guys pop a blood vessel let me explain my list a little.

Five Guys secures the number four spot and I think is ranked perfectly where it should be. I took a lot of factors into consideration and the only reason this is not higher up on my list is because of the price. I can easily spend twenty dollars on a burger and fries when I can get that same thing for much cheaper at another place. That being said, the food here is almost unmatched, they are very generous with the amount of French fries they give out and their burgers are easily top three.

Speaking about burgers, Jake’s Wayback takes the number three spot on my list. Most of you reading this right now have probably never even heard of this place but you will have to take my word for this; Jake’s Wayback has the best burgers in Norwalk. I fought over this pick for a very long time and had to break it down into several different categories. I was looking for a reason to take this off my list, but the truth is Jake’s Wayback checks all the boxes: location, price, availability, taste, menu options, etc. As much it might anger some of you, I’m leaving Jake’s Wayback at three.

For my second place option I decided to go a little more basic and pick one that is much more well known, Wendy’s. I can already see it now, all of you McDonald lovers are fuming, and honestly, I could not care less. Wendy’s is better than McDonalds. The reason I place this so high on my list is because it is just reliable. They are practically always open, huge parking lot, not a long drive, never a long wait, and a really great selection of food for a cheap amount. The thing about Wendy’s food is I don’t think they have the “best” of anything, but nothing they have is the worst. You can order anything on the menu and not be disappointed.

I have put this off for too long, so here it is. My number one fast food place in Norwalk, Qdoba. Anyone who says Qdoba is a wanna be Chipotle is wrong, Qdoba is flat out better, at fraction of the price. I genuinely feel sorry for anyone who has never had Qdoba before. When I tell you that everything about this place is prefect, I mean it. I was heartbroken when I saw Qdoba only received two votes. If you disagree, grow up.
