Fast food is a way of life in America. Some credit Ray Koch of McDonald's for the creation of these restaurants famous for serving up food within minutes that can be eaten on the go. But fast food has been a staple since street vendors sold their foods in ancient eras, from the Hans to the Huns and the Greeks to the Romans.
We've all grown up with fast food, driving through a Burger King for substance on a long road trip, swinging through a Dairy Queen for a celebratory treat after a Little League game, having pizza delivered to our front doors when we didn't feel like cooking. It's a part of our culture.
But there are some fast-food items that became icons and changed our lives, or at least our tastebuds. Here, we celebrate those that mainstays and rank them. How? Why letting your "votes" (social media hashtags) decide which foods from the biggest chains have made the biggest impression.
