America’s favorite restaurant for the eight consecutive year is Chick-fil-A, according to the recent American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) Restaurant Study 2021-2022.

The report is based on interviews of over 20,000 customers who were chosen at random.

Chick-fil-A, which is known for their Christian faith and family values, received a score of 83 out of a possible 100—the same score it tallied last year.

The “Freaky-Fast” sandwich maker Jimmy John’s came in third this year with a score of 79, while LongHorn Steakhouse and Texas Roadhouse were number two overall with a score of 80.

Both Domino’s and KFC received a score of 78, while Chipotle, Panera Bread, and Pizza Hut received a 77. McDonald’s finished last in the fast-food category, receiving a score of 68.

The beloved fast-food chicken restaurant was ranked number second behind Trader Joes on the top ten ACSI’s company list, the only restaurant to make the list.

“We are honored by the results of this survey and we are grateful to our customers for choosing Chick-fil-A. It’s truly our pleasure to serve them,” a Chick-fil-A representative told Fox News Digital.

With more than 170,000 employees representing 2,700 restaurants, which are closed on Sundays, Chick-fil-A’s representative shared that this “recognition is acknowledgment of the care” the company puts into serving great food with gracious hospitality. “Every day, our restaurant Team Members go above and beyond each day to create a friendly, welcoming place to visit.”

Chick-fil-A has experienced political and consumer backlash for its outspoken stance regarding biblical family values. In 2012, the restaurant’s CEO, Dan Cathy, said that America is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,” referring to widespread acceptance of same-sex marriage.
