What are the highest rated fast food chains in Massachusetts?

It’s time to settle an age-old debate, friends and neighbors of Berkshire County. What are the best fast food chains (and for that matter, the worse) in Massachusetts? These questions come up all the time: McDonald’s or Burger King? Taco Bell or Chipolte? KFC or Chick-fil-A?

Well, it’s time to ask those questions. CashNetUSAthe online lender, which offers loans as well as lines of credit, conducted a recent study of the highest-rated and lowest-rated fast food chains for each state and major city in the United States.

CashNetUSA got the results by looking at literally thousands of reviews on Google Maps and counting them. The results may or may not surprise you, but I know they were quite a surprise to me.

Let’s start with the top rated fast food chains in Massachusetts. And we will do it by food category. Again, there were a few surprises to be had. First, burgers:

5 Guys Burgers & Fries

In fact, not only was 5 Guys #1 in Massachusetts, it’s also the highest-rated hamburger chain in the United States. 5 Guys has dominated the burger category in 29 states!

Then top rated chicken fast food chain:


Like 5 Guys in the burger category, Chick-fil-A is the best chicken chain in the country. It’s the #1 fast food chicken restaurant in 46 states, making it the highest rated fast food chain globally.

The next step is Mexican:

Moe’s Southwest Grill

Personally, I’ve never had the chance to eat at a Moe’s but I’ve heard mostly positive reviews from those who have eaten there.

And finally, pizza! :

Chuck E. Cheese’s

Again, I love Chuck E. Cheese’s pizza, but I have to admit, this one surprised me. OK, let’s go. Are you ready for Massachusetts’ lowest rated fast food chain?

This one was another surprise. It’s actually a pizzeria. Any guesses?

Dominos Pizza

Let me say that I have been eating Domino’s Pizza for over three decades and for the most part have been quite satisfied. I’m not going to lie and say every pizza has been delicious. But it is also possible to have a bad meal in 4 star restaurants on occasion.

Here’s the unusual thing about this study: Pizzerias in general were the lowest-rated fast food chains in the country, with Papa John’s and Pizza Hut also receiving their fair share of poor reviews. I guess people are pretty particular about their pizza.

What do you think? Accept? To disagree? It is a fascinating study. Visit the CashNetUSA website to learn more. Click here for the full study.
