During the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been gravitating to things that make them feel comfortable. They've been streaming old sitcoms and movies, they've been listening to older music, and they've been eating lots of comfort foods.

That's why it should come as no surprise that lots of people have been eating some of their favorite fast foods. Whether it's by using drive-thru's, restaurant delivery apps, or curbside, people have been enjoying lots of burgers, fries, chicken sandwiches, and milkshakes.

A website called topagency.com recently published the results of a study on which fast-food restaurants have been the most popular during the pandemic.

Overall, topagency.com says that Sonic Drive-In has been the most popular fast-food restaurant in the United States during the pandemic, followed by Wendy's and Taco Bell, which were tied for 2nd.

Topagency.com believes that Sonic's carhop service is probably the biggest reason for its popularity.

So what about in New Jersey? Well, it's not Sonic, but that's probably because there are only 16 locations in the state.

My guess would have been McDonald's or Chick-fil-A, but I was wrong. According to topagency.com, Wendy's has been New Jersey's most popular fast-food restaurant during the pandemic, followed by McDonald's, Taco Bell, Burger, King, and Subway.

Topagency.com says that Wendy's was also most popular in 8 other states, including New York and Connecticut. (By the way, McDonald's was most popular in Pennsylvania).
