21 Fast Food Restaurants You Need To Try

Each little pocket of the nation has their own contribution to the fast-food landscape, and each one brings a unique flavor that you won’t find in the predictable, national chains. Which is why you need to strap in and look at these 21 amazing fast food restaurants you likely have never heard of.

In-N-Out

In-N-Out Burger was the top tasting hamburger made by human hands. Though it mostly lurks out on the west coast, the simple menu has all the stick-to-your-ribs goodness that so many boring chains lack.

Zip’s

Zip’s has a very 50’s diner feel to it, but the deep menu, crinkle fries, huge shakes, and constant specials make Zip’s a must for both driving through, and sitting down, as they strive to make their dining rooms more enjoyable for the patron who prefers not to eat in their car.

2

Whataburger

You don’t survive in Texas making substandard burgers. Given that Whataburger has not only survived, but flourished in the Lone Star State means they’ve hit the nail on the head.

3

Culver’s

Born in Wisconsin, where brats, burgers, and beer are a way of life, Culver’s also has a simple menu of fried fish, chicken, burgers, and the like.

4

Biscuitville

Aiming almost wholly at the rich breakfast from Dixie, Biscuitville is well worth the hospital visit to get your arteries de-clogged.

5

Rita’s Italian Ice

In some areas this is called “Rita’s Water Ice” which is a Philly thing. Nevermind the name, focus on the gelato, the creamy shakes, the smooth custard, and all the other beautiful, sugary coldness that Rita makes.

6

Wawa

This is a gas-station convenience store, yet has a touchscreen order menu for building the most delicious sandwich you’ve ever had in your life.
