This Is Wyoming’s Most Popular Fast Food Joint
Fast food is a way of life.
We're all on the go constantly and need to swing in to grab a bite to eat occasionally. Some folks pride themselves on not eating fast food, until you realize what's actually considered fast food.
There are 2 different definitions for fast food from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary
1: of, relating to, or specializing in food that can be prepared and served quickly
a fast-food restaurant
2: designed for ready availability, use, or consumption and with little consideration given to quality or significance
So technically, anything you've ever picked up to eat that was already prepared is fast food. So a gas station hot dog or turkey leg at a fair is fast food.
Luckily we have many options for fast food to keep our lives moving along.
Even though there are lots of options, Wyoming doesn't have nearly the options that other states do. As a matter of fact, Wyoming is second to last on the list for number of fast food restaurants per 100,000 people.
The Cowboy State has 62.5 fast food joints for every 100,000 people. Alaska is last with 61.9 per 100,000 people.
It's weird to look at the more populated states.
- Hawaii has 97.5 for every 100k (wild)
- New York has 92.3 for every 100k
- Little old Maryland even has 89.7 per 100k

Rounding out the Top 5 is Wyoming's own Taco John's with 20 locations across the state.
