Top 5 Fast Food Restaurants to Get Chicken Nuggets

As a lover of all food (especially Chicken Nuggets), I've decided to put to the test which restaurant has the overall best Chicken Nuggets based on crispiness, consistency of the nuggets, and the availability of a free sauce.

Top 5 Fast Food Restaurants to Get Chicken Nuggets

During my research, I visited five restaurants, all of which can be considered fast food, and began my search for the best place to get Nuggets. After talking to some of my friends, I chose the top five restaurants that they thought had the best nuggets and narrowed them down from there. McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Chick-Fil-A, and Zaxby's were the top five that were chosen so I went out, bought the nuggets, and have my results. Disclaimer: I know Zaxby's doesn't serve Chicken Nuggets but due to the overwhelming response that "Zaxby's was the best," I had to include them.

5. McDonald's

In Last Place, we have no other than the traditional Mickey D's Nugget. Based on the judgment for crispiness, consistency, and sauce, McDonald's fell short on two out of three. The Nuggets themselves were pretty crispy and cooked well. But, I ordered a 10 piece Chicken Nugget and got 11 Nuggets. Normally I would see this as a sign from God that I'm doing something right with my life but based on the rule consistency, I had to mark them down. Also, I got Honey Mustard instead of Barbeque Sauce so that drastically cut down their score as well.

4. Zaxby's (For Obvious Reasons)

Now looking aside from the fact that ZAXBY'S DOES NOT SERVE CHICKEN NUGGETS, I ordered their Chicken Fingers and honestly, I'm never disappointed with Zaxby's. The crispiness of the Chicken Fingers was amazing and I did receive four strips of Chicken so they did pretty well compared to McDonald's. But, their only downfall was the sauce. Now, I completely understand, Zax Sauce is superior to all other sauces but, I had to buy an extra sauce for my Chicken Fingers. And, honey, we all know I'm on that broke college student life and I could have used that 50 cents to help pay for some pens or something more useful than sauce. Maybe if they sold Nuggets instead of Fingers, one free sauce would be enough. But they don't, so it isn't. #sorrynotsorry

3. Burger King

When I visited Burger King, everything was pretty good. My 10 piece Chicken Nuggets were actually 10 pieces and they came out super quick compared to the rest of the competition. They gave me the right sauce and the traditional boot shape Nugget was pretty good. There's nothing really bad to say about Burger King's Nuggets except for the fact that they were just your average, run of the mill, Nuggets.

2. Wendy's

Wendy's Nuggets are my personal favorite Nugget. The seasoning on these nuggets is one that just can't be ignored. But, for this competition, I had to take my obvious bias out of the picture and look at the Nuggets from an outsider's perspective. Now, the Nuggets were very crispy and consistent to their 10 pieces. The sauce was okay but I prefer the Nuggets plain at Wendy's. Overall, Wendy's did a fantastic job but the sauce could have a few improvements.

1. Chick-Fil-A

The Fast Food Restaurant that has the BEST Chicken Nuggets is obviously Chick-Fil-A. Beyond the exceptional service that is offered there, the Nuggets themselves were beyond perfect. The crispiness was divine and the consistency of nuggets was on point. But what pushed Chick-Fil-A to the top spot was the unlimited amount of sauces you get for the nuggets. This fabulous employee handed me at least 4 of their Chick-Fil-A sauce, topped off with a "My Pleasure."

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
