We decided to have a little fun to see which drive thru had the fastest service in the Bismarck-Mandan area.

Over the course of a few days we visited several fast food restaurants and timed how long it took from the time we ordered to the time we got our food.

We went on weekdays during the noon hour when we assumed wait times would be the longest. We also ordered pretty much the same item at each location to ensure similar prep times.

We visited Hardees in Mandan, Burger King in Mandan, McDonalds in Mandan, Arby's on State Street in Bismarck, Dairy Queen in Mandan, and Schlotzkey's in Bismarck.

You can see the results in the video below:

To recap:

Hardee's - 5:36

Burger King - 4:21

McDonald's - 3:47

Arby's - 3:14

Dairy Queen - 2:46

Schlotzky's - 2:13

Like we said in the video this was just for fun. Obviously some days can be faster than others and we only gave each restaurant one chance. Let us know where you feel you get the best (and worst) drive-thru service in the area.
