Before we get to the countdown, here are the ground rules:

  • Restaurants MUST offer a chicken finger basket to be included in the ranking.
  • The legal definition of "basket" here is a combo meal that includes full-length chicken fingers (no nugs), fries, and toast and/or biscuit.
  • Chick-fil-A does NOT count, as they do not currently offer a chicken finger basket according to the bylaws above.
  • Only fast-food restaurants were included in the ranking.

Y'all ready?
