News In Brief

The best and worst of fast food

Kai Ryssdal Sep 3, 2010

This final note today, we’re going to do burgers in honor of the news about Burger King this week that it’s been sold for $4 billion. Consumer Reports is out with its annual ranking of fast food. Burger King, despite its high price, was second to last out of 30. McDonald’s came in last for burgers; first for fries. Topping the list was our own West Coast chain In ‘N Out. My sympathies to those who’ve never had an In ‘n Out burger.

Double double animal style for me, in case you’re curious.
