What Is the Most Popular Fast Food Chain in Los Angeles?

Survey finds that Five Guys is the most popular chain in the Los Angeles area

By Dolores Quintana

Top Agency, or Test Optimize Perform – a collaborative team of marketing agencies that collect and analyze data, has released its list of the top five restaurants in each state and across thirty of the nation’s biggest cities. 

For the state of California, as of June of 2022, Top Agency’s data says that these are the top five restaurants:

  • QDoba Mexican Eats
  • In-N-Out Burger
  • Chik-fil-A
  • Charley’s Philly Steaks
  • Chipoltle Mexican Grill

According to the study and as reported by KTLA the Top Agency study found , “In California, there was a 49% increase in fast food consumption in 2021. That ranks 10th out of the 50 states in the country. According to the study, California as a whole chose McDonald’s as its most popular fast food restaurant.”

The top five restaurants in Los Angeles, per the Top Agency study are:

  1. Five Guys
  2. Chipotle Mexican Grill
  3. In-N-Out Burger
  4. McDonald’s
  5. Chick-fil-A

Even though In-N-Out is one of the area’s seemingly most popular restaurants, one that was founded in the San Gabriel Valley and is large part of the Southern California fast food scene, the iconic burger chain is ranked third out of the top five. It’s somewhat shocking that a chain that gets so much attention, in a time where hamburgers chains are realizing the most gains in sales, according to the study. In-n-Out restaurants realized a gain of 54% increase in traffic throughout the country in 2022, but that still wasn’t enough to give the chain the top spot on its home turf. Five Guys, a chain from Virginia took the top spot, and McDonald’s fast casual Mexican restaurant took second place.

Chik-fil-A, from Georgia, came in fifth place after a fourth place showing by the venerable McDonald’s.
