According to a new study done by QSR Magazine, Burger King has the fastest drive-thru in the country and McDonald's reported the slowest times.

But is this actually good news for the folks at Burger King? On one hand you could say it's great for BK, and shows they're fast and efficient and hard-working. Or two, it's really pretty terrible for BK, because it shows they're so unpopular that their drive-thru lines are never very long. Or that they rush orders and goof things up.

Anyway, here are the speed rankings for the major fast food chains that we have in the Cedar Valley in order of fastest to slowest:

Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, KFC, Wendy's, Taco Bell, Arby's, Hardee's, Chick-fil-A and McDonalds.

Overall, the average time someone waits in a drive-thru line is three minutes and 54 seconds, which is nine seconds faster than last year when QSR performed a similar study. Remember though, this study only indicates speed - and not necessarily overall happiness with the finished product.

It's worth mentioning, Chick-fil-A scored the highest courtesy rating.
