Let's face it, we have all grown up on fast food. The American lifestyle has changed so much that fast food has become a mainstay of our lives. We go on a trip, grab some fast food. Don't feel like cooking tonight, grab fast food. Of course, we all have our favorites.

We also know we're not exactly eating very healthy food. Case in point, the American waist line is seriously growing.

So, what are we grabbing for food, anyway? How does it rate, and is one place better than another?

A recent study by Yahoo Finance came out with a list of the worst fast food joints in American. According to Yahoo Finance, they utilized Reddit for their findings. Some are surprising, some not so, but the number one worst fast food restaurant in the U.S. has 23 locations in Michigan and one is here in Grand Rapids.

5. Del Taco

Del Taco isn't here in West Michigan but has three locations in the Detroit area. They for sure serve Tacos, but the have typical American fare as well. However, Reddit users weren't having it. So it comes in at number five.

4. KFC

A large number of Reddit contributors complained about the food quality and customer service to make Long John Silvers the worst fast food chain in America, and Michigan!

Hey, don't forget the ratings are only based on opinions. I've stopped at all of these spots, except for Del Taco, and I've enjoyed a quick sandwich or some chicken, so this survey, or any other, is certainly very subjective.

You decide. What do you think? Do you have a Worst, or better yet, a Best on you list?
