The Top Fast Food Chains For Breakfast
We already know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s often the most overlooked in our busy lives. The first meal of the day is one of the most frequent meals Americans consume at a fast food restaurant. And since we’ve already ranked the best burger and pizza chains, it’s time to rank the top fast food chains serving up delicious breakfast food.
7. Burger King
Burger King has been slinging 100 percent beef patties for decades, but they’re also one of America’s favorite fast food stops in the morning. Their breakfast sandwiches are served on biscuits or croissants, but the latter has long been a staple favorite. Side offerings are slim, consisting of either mini round hash browns or french toast sticks, but also on the menu is a breakfast burrito which alone catapults Burger King onto our list of the top fast food chains serving up breakfast.
Wendy’s stepped up their fast food game when it finally re-launched its breakfast menu in 2020. Compared to other fast food chains, Wendy’s breakfast menu is stacked with options, including the popular baconator sandwich and a must-try chicken biscuit sandwich. Fans of Wendy’s Frosty love the morning version of the sweet treat, the Frosty-ccino, which pairs perfectly with any breakfast sandwich.
5. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another popular fast-food chain that joined the breakfast craze in recent years. The company now offers a Mexican twist on breakfast favorites, many of which put their competitors to shame. Taco Bell takes some of its best menu items, like the crunchwrap, and turns it into a mouthwatering breakfast meal loaded with bacon, egg, cheese, and creamy jalapeno sauce.
Chic-Fil-A tops plenty of fast food categories, and breakfast is no exception. While this popular chain does offer your basic bacon or sausage breakfast sandwiches, chicken is the star of Chic-Fil-A, and the chicken biscuit or the chick-n-minis are to die for.
3. Dunkin' Donuts
Breakfast reigns supreme at Dunkin’, and it’s no wonder the company officially removed “Donuts” from its name, considering this fast food chain has so many great choices other than sweets and coffee. Dunkin’ offers a wide variety of breakfast sandwiches on grains such as toast, bagels, English muffins, croissants, and wraps. But still, we have to admit that Dunkin’ really shines brightest in its lineup of sweet drinks.
Starbucks is always a popular choice for those looking for signature roast coffee and some of the best pastries available from a fast food chain. But their breakfast lineup should not be overlooked. Continuing their trend to serve high-quality products, the bread offerings for their breakfast sandwiches are some of the freshest and flakiest you can get from any restaurant chain.
The world’s most recognizable fast food chain finishes off our list for the best quick breakfast. This ranking should come as no surprise, as the fast food behemoth coined on-the-go breakfast way back in 1971 with the creation of the Egg McMuffin – still one of McDonald’s most popular offerings. But it’s not just the McMuffin that has won over our hearts. The McDonald’s hash brown puck is dangerously addictive, and their lineup of morning lattes to wash it all down is equally impressive.
