Cheap food isn't necessarily a bargain, and remarkably, just 22 percent of respondents to Consumer Reports' latest fast­-food survey‚ covering 96,208 meals at 65 chains—thought their meal offered excellent value. These three chains were the standouts—judged better­ than average—in terms of how much bang they offered readers for their dining dollars.



Top of the value list

  • Del Taco
  • Little Caesars
  • Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake Pizza

Bottom of the list

  • Burger King
  • Church's
  • KFC
  • Panda Express
  • Sbarro
