There are over 100,000 chain restaurant locations in the U.S. and total annual sales at them are expected to be close to $900 billion this year. For the second year, Newsweek and global data firm Statista are proud to award America’s Favorite Restaurant Chains in selected categories.
The 2023 ranking was compiled based on the results of an independent survey among more than 4,000 customers and employees of restaurant chains in the United States. The survey ran from July to August 2022. This year there are 220 winners in 16 categories.

Survey respondents had to indicate which restaurant chains they would recommend for one of three ethnic cuisines and 13 dish categories. In a next step, they were asked to share their experiences by rating the restaurant chains regarding nine assessment criteria (e. g., taste of food, service, accessibility). All ratings were then transformed into a score value and aggregated towards a final score.

To receive an award, a restaurant chain needed to receive a minimum number of recommendations and an overall score of at least 7 out of 10. In addition, a restaurant chain was required to have at least three locations across different cities within at least two U.S. states.
