Let's chat about fast food. Yeah, the places like McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Popeye's, Chick-Fil-A. Is it something that you enjoy, you wish you could eat more of, think it's trash and maybe don't buy it because it's WAY too expensive nowadays?

In America, the fast food industry saw $296.6 billion in profit. That's a LOT of money.

We've all had our fair share of needing to eat something from one of these places before, and National Fast Food Day is coming up on November 16. Maybe you're looking to celebrate with a Big Mac or an order of curly fries?

LawnStarter compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities to rank 2023’s Best Cities for Fast Food Lovers, and well, it's not good for Syracuse. In fact, they ranked the third worst for Fast Food Lovers.

We looked for cities with access to plenty of fast-food establishments. We also considered affordability and quality, including Thrillist’s Fasties Awards.

Syracuse, New York was given an overall score of 24.94, with an access rank of 22, quality rank of 198, and affordability rate of 195. Meaning, we have a decent amount of fast food options and are able to access them in the area, but the quality is garbage and it's simply not affordable compared to the other cities in the study.

Orlando, Florida takes the top spot on the list being the best city, followed by New York City at number two (no surprise there.)
