Louisiana w/ Popeyes...solid.

Never heard of 8 of those places (would be 9 except In and Out Burger in Big Lebowski).

Why would anyone eat at a Long John Silvers? I had no idea that was even still around.

I believe that In N Out is Iowas favorite chain. Best I can tell the closest one is at least 600 miles away from anywhere in Iowa, but really all any Iowan wants is to get as far away from Iowa as they can.

Yeah, been a couple times. It's pretty good but I feel like the amount of time it takes is no different than a regular restaurant and I can get a better burger at that restaurant, plus when you start adding all the accouterment to your order it winds up being more expensive than a restaurant. I got fries and a burger with bacon and avocado and a drink and it was like $20+. If I've got some extra money and I'm near one I might opt for it, but my go-to fast-food chain in Chicago is probably Potbelly.

Guys, that's a barstool map, and the Public Information and Statistics Society isn't a thing.

There is no chance any of this is based on actual data. PISS may not be on the up and up.

True. It does add up and get expensive, but I only go there occasionally.

Potbelly's is very good. When their cookies are fresh out of the oven, they are delightful. The shakes are pretty damn good too.

How do people react to these maps every time they come out?

If you don’t know what any of these are, might I suggest the doughboys podcast.

FYI Jollibee is a Filipino fast food joint that I know of because our nanny took the kids there a few times and they loved the spaghetti and ketchup which looks and sounds disgusting.

That is by far the weirdest one for me. And you'd be right, except no one in Iowa ever leaves Iowa, and certainly not for the west coast
