Fast food and fast casual should be separated.

Five Guys as a 1 seed.  I just don't get it.  They're good, as fast food burger joints go, and I certainly appreciate that no matter what size fry you get you get way too many, I just don't think they're nearly as good as the hype.

Who is better?


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Double digit seeds that win in that bracket

13 Firehouse Subs over 4 Pizza Hut
12 Potbelly over 5 Panda Express
11 Little Ceasers over 6 White Castle
10 Jersey Mikes over 7 Panera
10 Qdoba over 7 Skyline Chili

16 Roy Rogers gives 1 Five Guys a scare, but Five Guys prevails. However, if the two are next to each other, I’d opt for the Gold Rush Chicken Sandwich pretty often.

Little Caesar's is a hard no for me. Otherwise, that's cool with me even I don't really know Firehouse or Skyline at all, but Pizza Hut should lose to almost anything.

Other double digit seeds I'd go with:

14 Church's over 3 Subway (more about Subway)

10 Cookout over 7 Papa John's

10 Wingstop over 7 Long John Silver's

11 Del Taco over 6 Raising Cane's

And the big upset...

15 El Pollo Loco over 2 Taco Bell

Little Ceasers is good for what it is, but White Castle is awful, IMO. Living around here I never had it. Tried it on my first trip to the midwest and was very let down. 

 

Haven't had any of the other ones you mentioned. Assuming they are west coast chains? They have Wingstop around here now I think, just haven't had it.

White Castle sliders are pretty tasty imo.

Cookout is southern (had it in Richmond). It's a good late night place after a night of drinking.

Yeah, other places are out west.

Disagree. They don't serve alcohol. I could see Shake Shack as fast casual. Not 5G.

Long John Silver looks like the most disgusting food on the planet.

I like Firehouse...  don't care so much for Jersey Mikes.  Would have Panera there.

Qdoba won big.

That's not the defining characteristic of a fast casual place. The lack of a drive through is key as is the higher price point compared to true fast food places. It's also generally not as fast.

For fast casual Cava needs to be up there.
