When you're starving and on the go, one of life's greatest gifts is a fast food chain that's like a beacon of light at the end of the hunger tunnel.

You know when you're on a road trip or long drive and you're on the highway and all of a sudden the hunger hits. So you start looking for those big highway signs for something to eat. There's two scenarios that can arise - you either get really excited because you see one of your favorites or you get sad because you have to settle.

If I had to make a list of my top 5 favorite fast foods, it would be really hard. But I guess I'll try.

  1. McDonald's
  2. Culver's
  3. Popeye's
  4. Taco Bell
  5. Wendy's

I really wish I could make a top 10, but I won't cheat. My top 5 is a combination of Illinois and Wisconsin's favorites. Personally I'm kind of upset with Illinois for not even having Culver's on their list. But where it ranked for Wisconsin makes up for it.

Here's the top 5 fast food chains in Illinois and Wisconsin according to MSN -

Top 5 Favorite Fast Food Chains in Wisconsin -

So it looks like I'm more in sync with Wisconsin's favorites. Like I said, I'm surprised and disappointed in Illinois for not even having Culver's on their list! Also, I'd definitely replace Subway with Jimmy Johns, just saying.
