While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

We’ll take a #1 with a Dr. Pepper, please: November 16 is National Fast Food Day.

QSR magazine, a publication focusing on restaurant news, ranks the top 50 quick service restaurants each year. In 2010, McDonalds topped the list with more than 31,000 restaurants worldwide.

Following the Golden Arches is Subway, Burger King, Wendy’s, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Dunkin Donuts, Pizza Hut, KFC and Sonic, in that order. Commercial eating places rake in $388 billion annually.

So, the question isn’t if you’ll be able to find some fast food to celebrate today’s holiday, but which chain you’ll choose.

What’s your favorite fast food meal?

      Can I have one? That burger really looks like it's crawling with disease.
