Burger King

Various locations
Various hours (late-night drive-through at some locations)

If you're cruising for flame-kissed meat but you don't have time to get out of the car, Burger King is the place. The Whopper starts with an all-beef patty that is carefully charbroiled on a slow-moving conveyor belt. Additional flavor comes from freshly sliced tomatoes and onions, along with a sublime concert of ketchup and mayonnaise slathered across the bun. Burger King's "taste-test-winning" fries are disappointing when not straight out of the fryer, but you can always try their passable extra-crispy onion rings instead.
