Five Guys Burgers and Fries landed atop a Zagat's survey of 6,518 Americans rating 136 fast-food and full-service chains. But asking five guys to rate the Top 5 burger joints is a little like getting five connoisseurs to agree on art. These are serious diners, who eat at chain outlets an average 10.7 times a month.
