only those here in the list which we recommend all over the US from our journeys.

in and out burger

From my or our point of view, the best of the best in the franchise section of fast food - it's the fresh, tasty and healthy part of live :D http://in-n-out.com/

hardees

Fresh grilled burgers - looks like halal. Was very good and tasty, interesting store. http://www.hardees.com/

Jason's Deli

As europeans we couldn't understand why every soup will be chowderd, even the chicken soup had such a wonderful and immense taste. The other food was also very tasty and fresh - The black cherry - pure cane sugar is one of the best cherry soft drinks I've ever had. https://www.jasonsdeli.com/

Applebee's Grill & Bar

Very funny situation, if you are getting more and more away from New York, the service will be better and better - also the food will get more tastier - Breakfast was very good in Brooklyn. Diner was the best in Pennsville / Glenside. https://www.applebees.com/

five guys

Five Guys at Washington DC - was nearly on in-and-out. Fries hand cutted and burger like home. I was fascinated by the softdrink station where you can design your own drink like a ginger ale with cherry taste :) http://www.fiveguys.com/

Wendys

Wendy's could be the sister of Ronald - Same Menu, same price but better quality, from my point of view. https://www.wendys.com/
