According to Business Insiderfast-food restaurants are a $255 billion industry. From burgers and pizza to doughnuts and sandwiches, American's love food they can grab on the go.

Business Insider along with Restaurant Business, a food-service website, compiled a list of the best fast-food restaurants in the U.S.  You'll see that just because some fast-food chains make a lot of money (McDonalds, Taco Bell, etc), they're not listed in the Top 25 because this list is more than just what chain has the most customers. Here's how they came up with the rankings:

We looked at nearly 100 of the largest US chains and rated them on three criteria that we considered the most telling for all-around fast-food excellence: financial performance, customer satisfaction, and overall value. Our calculations accounted for sales growth, average sales at each location, consumer-sentiment ratings, and the average cost of a meal, among other metrics.

Ten of the top 25 restaurants are already in Sioux Falls, one is looking for a location and two others are rumored to be coming. Here's the list.
