SHARE McDonald’s burgers bitten in Consumer Reports survey

McDonald’s might be the leading fast-food chain worldwide but its hamburgers hit rock bottom in the latest survey by Consumer Reports.

Consumers ranked the Oak Brook company’s hamburgers lowest among 21 restaurants. Jack-in-the-Box and Burger King rated only slightly better. The best burgers, Consumer Reports said, are found at The Habit Burger Grill, In-N-Out Burger, and Five Guys and Smashburgers tied for third.

Portillo’s, another Oak Brook chain, topped the sandwiches category. Chick-fil-A had the best-tasting chicken sandwich and Chipotle Mexican Grill topped the burrito category.
