Krystal And In-N-Out: The United States Of Fast Food

August 15, 2013


Note: Larger version HERE in case you're really into New England.

This is a map of the United States of Fast Food created by Thrillist. Each state is represented by a food chain (with an emphasis on fast food) that either first started or is headquartered in the state (you can read a brief excerpt about the decision making process for each state HERE). I don't know about you, but just looking at the map made me hungry. I want all of these things. But do you know what I'm going to have instead? A Vitamin Water. There was seriously nothing else in the break room fridge to steal. "So you're that @$$hole." Well we don't work together so I'm not THAT specific @$$hole, just that kind of a-hole. I'm joking, you think I'm above coming to your place of work just to steal your lunch? "I'm really hoping." Well hope harder sucker because I only ate half of it and threw the rest away.

Thanks to Lydia, who informed me all food can be fast food if you chew fast and swallow quick enough.

  • Where the hell is White Castle? Isn't it the oldest fast food place in
    the world or something? HQ is in Ohio (screw Wendy's), but anywhere east
    of the Mississippi has them!

    St. Louis Bread Company, not Panera, thank you very much.

    They really should switch course and do that, it would make the place seem less generic and give some recognition to STL. I live in Columbia, MO, and it's even Panera here, less than 150 miles away...

    I would actually think Little Ceaser's rather than Dominos Pizza either way I guess

  • David Gabel

    in Michigan? nope. it was basically Dominos and papa Johns and that was it as far as what I saw people get.

    First KFC was in Utah. But whatever, man. It has "Kentucky" in it, so... our bad I guess.

    HQ is in Kentucky. They changed the name to KFC anyway. Doesn't even stand for anything.

    White Castle was founded in Kansas, not Ohio.

    Is it just me or does every place I didn't know about just seem old timey or weird?

  • Jeff

    I'm proud to say our fastfood restaurant is Bojangles. You really can sincerely find that place any where in North Carolina.

  • Brandon

    Bigger version still not big enough to read all of them.

  • Ryan

    WTF is Ted's?!

  • I have lived in Maryland my entire existence- what the #&%$ is a Jerry's?

  • Grindzombie

    Fuckin' Sbarro... worst excuse for pizza rightfully damned to the grey waste of the New Jersey turnpike. As a proud NJ citizen, even I have to say couldn't you have given NY something a little less disgusting... like- i dunno... NATHAN'S?

  • OrehRatiug

    I've never even seen a Sbarro, but any pizza chain is infinitely worse than a mom and pop pizza restaurant. I have to say though, I have only seen one Blimpie in the past 10 years and it is connected to a gas station, where are they hiding now?

  • Grindzombie

    Basically if you want the Sbarro experience: Buy Elio's Pizza. Microwave for 45 seconds. Eat. For added effect, do this at 4:30 am and make sure you're teetering on that line between "hung over" and "still drunk".

    And I don't think I've ever even seen a blimpie, come to think about it... Though I've heard the name.

  • WhiteEagle2

    I wouldn't exactly call an ice cream shop a fast food restaurant. Looking at Arizona being cold stone.

  • Sergeant_Poop

    Also, Ted's in Montana is a sit-down restaurant...definitely not fast food.

  • Brandon

    There's an emphasis on fast food, that doesn't mean every one is going to be fast food.

  • lordpikachu

    give them a break!

    Gino's! Gino's! Gino's!
