When given a choice of six different chains — those being Burger King, Chick-fil-A, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Wendy’s, and White Castle — over half of our respondents (51%) chose Chick-fil-A. Well, fried chicken does pair well with a little bit of the bubbly, and the perennially popular Chick-fil-A was the only chicken chain on our list. (We didn’t dare include Popeye’s in our poll, since no one wants to re-ignite that conflagration.)
In a surprising second-place finish was Taco Bell, with more than 16% of the votes, but then again, maybe it’s not so strange. After all, there’s very little in life that inspires the kind of devotion a Doritos Loco taco can demand. Burgers, however, were seen as less romantic; Wendy’s was a distant third with just over 9% of the vote, while Burger King was fourth with just under 8%. Tied for dead last, with only 7.5% each, were White Castle and Mickey D’s. The latter would probably have had a slight edge, though, if only our pollees had known just how well those tasty McDonald’s fries would complement the champagne toast.
