Fast food restaurant apps are an awesome way to grab an easy bite to eat. The best fast food apps let you do everything from advanced ordering to speedy checkouts.
Of course, we’re sure you all use workout apps to rigorously manage your diet and exercise plans, but these 10 fast food apps for Android are there just in case hunger strikes.
If you’re in the mood for a quick burger, you can’t go wrong with Wendy’s.
The Wendy’s app lets you load funds into your Wendy’s account for speedier payments and find nearby restaurants. And if you live in Austin (TX), Phoenix (AZ), Portland (OR), New Orleans (LA), Shreveport (LA), Alexandria (LA), Baton Rouge (LA), or Columbus (OH), you can enjoy mobile ordering.
Like most of the apps on this list, Wendy’s provides some nutritional data. However, if you want more details, you’d be better served using a dedicated diet and nutrition app.

Chick-fil-A will let you use its mobile app to order in advance and skip the line. This option isn’t available at every establishment, but the app will show if yours makes the list.
The app’s two other headline features are a customized menu (which remembers what you like and how you like it served), and collectible treats that you can redeem for free food.
You will also see nutritional information for each item.

Maybe you’re in the mood for Mexican-inspired American food. In that case, Taco Bell is the answer.
