Plus, at least in my hometown, their drive-thru is the fastest of any fast food restaurant.

The McD's by me is shoving a coke in my hand before I can even put down the receipt and my credit card from the first window.

Wendy's had me waiting what seems like 5-10 minutes. I can't even count BK as a contender as they have NEVER gotten a single order right on the first try.

I just can't eat that nasty food at BK. Plus, in my area their drive-thru is much slower than their national average.

I used to like the Whoppers, but now they look like canned prison meat, instead of beef. :s

Ahh years ago when I had to go get a McD for me, the gf and her kids I quickly learned to check everything before driving off :/

Taco bell for me has been the fastest, Wendys never was fast around Western Pa for me.... Taco Bell they pretty much hand you the food as you hand you the money, fastest I've ever been there from order to done was about 30 seconds... and i'm not kidding... Wendy's around here you average 3+ minutes Burger King here you can sit there sometimes for 6+ minutes... slow as heck... McDonalds is in the middle 1 - 3 minutes usually here

I stopped going through the DT windows at any joint. Seems like they always screw something up, this even after I ask at the window for them to repeat the order... I find it better to simply go physically in the place, that way I can raise a stink right there if the order is pooched. :rofl:

To me, accuracy > time.

I hate BK. I'd rather go to DQ or Culver's.

Local Wendy's here may be somewhat fast, but they also mess up orders and sometimes give you cold, poor quality food, with that 'fastness'.

Chick-Fil-A! They definitely aren't the fastest around, but I love their spicy chicken sandwich.

I'd rather wait a bit longer for my food than buy from Chick-fil-A. But I prefer McDonald's to Burger King, on the rare occasion I allow myself to get fast food :)

Yeah, BK has a slow drive-thru, as does MCD's in my area. Wendy's is by far the fastest, and also happens to be my favorite of the big three. However, I don't eat very much fast food (maybe once or twice a month), so meh.

I sware our wendy's is told "if they ask for sauce pretend they gave it to you and hope they dont look"... littearly every single time I ask for sauce I do NOT get it at our wendy's... have to ask "is it in there" ... "yes" ... look after they hand the bag out... "no its not" they get ****ed at this point and grumbleingly go and get the sauce...

Wendys and HJ is very different. Wendy is a ice-cream parler and is usally in shopping centres. IT is not like Hungry Jacks.

One thing to consider is that BK usually cooks their burgers to order instead of having them sit around like Wendys and McD's. That might somewhat account for the slower times.

I have to agree on that. In fact one morning on my way to work, they went to shove hand me a coke and either the lid wasn't on right, or the guy hit my car roof and popped the lid off, but next thing I know I'm covered in soda. It'd be nice for them to wait to seconds for me to put my receipt away.

I prefer Boston Pizza. They may be a bit slower, but product quality is top notch and i usually give decent tips. ALL you people want fast,fast and faster but if you wait a few minutes more, then food will be higher quality and less stress.

Based on the report it seems that 3 minutes for freshly cooked burgers is an eternity to Americans, sad really, everyone's always in a hurry to go nowhere

Me I stopped getting "junk food" other than Pizza at a local pizzeria, and if it takes an hour for the delivery, so be it, which is the average, but it's great pizza

Meh, I know when the CEO for our countries Burger King when to the Asia-Pacific conference we had the fastest drive thru. The goal is 180 seconds but as a manager we're always aiming to get it as low as possible - preferably below 2minutes where possible. One thing to remember is that the drive thru statistics include the customer placing the order - if the customer stares at the board for 2 minutes deciding then there is little the order taker can do to speed up the process.

^ Restaurants should have a menu board well before the vehicle timer trigger, so customers have a good idea of what they want.

And the order timer should not start until the order is rung in.
