Consumer Reports' October issue runs the results of their fast food burger survey, taken by 28,000 of their online subscribers. The respondents ranked 18 fast food burgers on a scale of 1 to 10, and the final results of the survey, along with a photo of each candidate, is below.
In-N-Out Burger and Five Guys shared the top honors, each earning an average score of 7.9. You may remember this same burger duo from last month's Zagat fast food survey, where Five Guys edged out In-N-Out for their best fast food burger crown.
The mega-chain trio of McDonald's, Jack in the Box, and Burger King rounded out the very bottom of Consumer Report's list, lending some credibility to this set of burger rankings (though we can't speak for some of the smaller chains in the middle -- Back Yard Burgers, Checkers, Krystal anyone?).
Below are the complete rankings from first to last, with the overall score (on a scale of 1-10) they each received. How do these burgers stack up for you?
