Add to the mix the hungry family that’s waiting for you when you walk in the door, and one thing becomes clear: you’ve got to get dinner on the table, and you’ve got to get it fast. 

More often than not, that means a quick trip through the closest drive-thru could be your saving grace. But which drive-thru is actually the fastest at getting you your food?

Additionally, they took nearly 1,500 trips through different drive-thrus at different times of day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours) while collecting data regarding how fast each trip took from start to finish. 

After averaging out the times at each restaurant, they determined which chain had the speediest drive-thru service. So, which one ended up on top?
