There's a new top fast-food chain in the U.K, and it's a pretty familiar name to those living in the U.S. 

The first Five Guys burger joint opened in Arlington, Virginia, in 1986. But it's only been around in the U.K. since 2013

Which is why it's impressive that Five Guys came out on top when Market Force Information asked more than 4,500 people in the U.K. about their experiences at various restaurants and whether they would recommend said restaurants to friends. 

It earned the top scores in staff friendliness, food quality and overall cleanliness. 

Nando's, a chicken fast-food joint recognized as the second favorite this year, got top marks in speed and value for money. 

It's not a huge surprise that Five Guys ranked third in the value-for-money category. After all, a burger and fries in the U.K. costs customers 11.75 pounds, or roughly just over $16.

Gourmet Burger Kitchen, KFC and Burger King rounded out the top five favorite fast-food restaurants.
