Grabbing a soft drink, fries, and a chicken sandwich on the way to your kids' soccer practice or a big meeting is something many Americans do every day. While fast-food chains aren't necessarily known as the cleanest places to eat, some received top marks from consumers.

A 2018 survey from Restaurant Business looked at the overall interior cleanliness, from floors and silverware to tabletops and trays. The survey also asked fast-food restaurant customers to rate the perceived cleanliness of the kitchens and food prep area. The restrooms were also ranked for overall cleanliness, as they can be a major indicator of how clean the rest of the location is.
