NJ’s most googled fast food restaurant is surprising
New Jersey… I’m not crazy… I’m disappointed.
You are at the top of your game on a lot of things. You have some of the best colleges in the world, you are apparently very happy, although some of us doubt it, and you have made great strides in the area of women’s health.
The only thing that surpasses your ability to overload the hell of your citizens is your ability to make great food. That’s why I found our most popular fast food restaurant surprising.
Before we get to that, let’s take a look at your CV:
Round, pasty, and brushed with butter (or cream cheese, or lox, whatever floats on your boat), you have mastered the art of bagels. Surely you have a decent palette.
Yeah, yeah, or “Taylor ham”. However, you want to talk about it. New Jersey, you crush the competition when it comes to breakfast meats. Type that pork roll over the aforementioned bagel with an egg and cheese and you have a great morning.
That’s right, Philadelphia! Your precious cheesesteaks may be named after you, but the best cheesesteak according to Anthony Bourdain can be found in the great Garden State. You can read about it here.
Okay, I don’t know anyone who likes a piece of saltwater taffy, but it’s a Jersey Shore staple. We’ve made it a household name, so it deserves an honorable mention.
This brings me to my point….
A study was done on trends.google.com on the top fast food restaurants for each state and New Jersey is simply SHOCKING to me.
This New Jersey subreddit user said it best: My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.
Our most sought after restaurant is Domino’s Pizza.
DOMINO PIZZA ??
I’m sorry we are home to pizzerias like Federicis, Pete and Elda’s, The Cabin, Piccolo’s Trattoria and you fools look on Google Domino’s ??
Jersey, you’re better than this!
Granted, there’s an hour and a place to order late at night from Domino’s, but it really was a surprising choice for a state known for its incredible pizzas. We’re not alone though, according to the graph, another 29 states share Domino’s as their most searched fast food restaurant on Google.
A word of advice: next time try Google search for “Trenton Tomato Pie”, you will get some tasty results!
