COLUMBUS, OH -- The chain that claims it's "way better than fast food" did better than its competitors in a new survey.
Wendy's has been named the top fast-food chain by restaurant guide publisher Zagat.
The burger chain based in the Columbus suburb of Dublin, Ohio, was rated number one overall, followed by Subway, McDonald's, KFC and Burger King.
Wendy's also ranked first in the last Zagat fast-food survey two years ago.
Separate rankings of the food and the facilities at the big quick-service chains have Wendy's on top as well.
Zagat Survey CEO Tim Zagat says the chains that fared best offer a lot of value to diners, which he says is more important than ever in the current economy.
Wendy's is part of part of Atlanta-based Wendy's/Arby's Group Inc.
