Illinois and Missouri are VERY different states, they both have the things that make them unique and special. Missouri and Illinois however apparently agree on the most popular fast food chain in their state, and sadly it's a chain that isn't even in the Tri-States.

Chick-fil-A is the most popular Fast Food chain in the state of Missouri and Illinois according to the website eatthis.com. Now they put this list together using data from Yelp, based on reviews of popular fast food chains, and apparently Chick-fil-A took the top spot in both states. Blaze Pizza took the top spot in Iowa, if you haven't ever been to a Blaze Pizza I highly recommend trying one out. In fact Blaze Pizza and Chick-fil-A dominated the list nationally, see the entire list for yourself just CLICK HERE.

This is just another slap in the face to us all that live here in the Quincy/Hannibal region...I have lived here almost two years now and I still can't believe there is no Chick-fil-A in Quincy, Hannibal, or Palmyra, it would be without a doubt the busiest fast food joint for years, and years if one opened in any of those towns. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to eat Chick-fil-A and Blaze Pizza whenever I wanted when I lived in Chicago, so yes I agree with all those signs you see around Quincy, "Quincy is NOT Chicago"...
