COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- - The chain that claims it's "way better than fast food" did
better than its competitors in a new survey.
Wendy's has been named the top fast-food chain by restaurant guide publisher Zagat.
The burger restaurants based in the Columbus suburb of Dublin, Ohio, rated No. 1 overall, followed by Subway, McDonald's, KFC and Burger King. Wendy's also ranked first in the last Zagat fast-food survey two years ago.
Separate rankings of the food and the facilities at the big quick-service chains have Wendy's on top as well.
Zagat Survey CEO Tim Zagat says the chains that fared best offer a lot of value to diners, which he says is more important than ever in the current economy.
Wendy's is part of Atlanta-based Wendy's/Arby's Group Inc.
