Marple Newtown Restaurants Rank No. 1 in Zagat Survey

Zagat released a survey of fast-food chains on Sept. 6. Here's where our Patch stands.

Why are we here?

Are we alone in the universe?

What are the best places to get fast-food?

Bedeviled by the third question (but, for now at least, mute on the first two), the people at Zagat commissioned a brave team of 6,000 surveyors to scour the nation’s fast-food eateries, supersize themselves, and record their findings.

One year, and 779,000 meals later, here’s what they found.
