What burger chain reigns supreme?

Posted to Maps  |  Nathan Yau

In a follow up to his McDonald’s map, Stephen Von Worley of Weather Sealed maps the dominating burger chains across the United States. McDonald’s obviously has a stronghold in a lot of areas but not all of them. Most noticeable is Sonic Drive-in with over 900 restaurants in Texas alone. Personally, I’m rooting for Carl’s Jr. and In-n-Out.
