If you’re thinking about a road trip soon, good information to have is which state has the most expensive fast food! The Mike & Carla Morning Show brought this up this morning and wanted to know where Nevada was on the list.
A recent study where results were published in an article by Food & Wine, looked at how much fast-food chains charge in different cities across the country. And it’s surprising how much it varies. For example, they looked at what a burger and fries with a soda costs at 145 different chains in the 50 biggest cities in the U.S. You might be surprised to find out that on average it ranges from $6.55 all the way up to $15.30 per meal!
Now if you’re on the road and traveling through Oklahoma looking for a cheap meal, make sure to cruise through Tulsa because according to this report, Tulsa is number one when it came to the cheapest fast food meal at only $6.50! Even Detroit, Carla Rea’s adopted hometown, wasn’t too bad when it came to grabbing a fast food lunch at $8.79 per meal! On the flipside, Mike O’Brian’s old stomping grounds of Chicago, your average fast food meal is going to cost you $9.99…not even close to being the most expensive!
If you’re wondering what is the most expensive fast food place…according to Food & Wine, it just happens to be Five Guys, averaging $19.95 for a burger with fries and a drink. In Las Vegas, we have eight locations…and even with that, Las Vegas is not even in the Top 10 when it comes to the most expensive fast food!
So, what are the Top 5 cities and where does Las Vegas end up on this list? Listen to the segment from this morning, plus “A Few Things We Think You Should Know”, then scroll down below to find out the Top 5 and where Las Vegas actually ends up on the list…and enjoy!
