We think of fast food as cheap as well as fast, but chain prices have risen over the years with everything else. Some items now top $10, steep for something that may not be exactly healthy. We looked at national fast-food chains to find the most expensive item at each — excluding items designed to serve multiple people such as orders of 40 chicken nuggets, combo meals, and limited-time offers — with results that may surprise you (or may just make you hungry).
Prices and availability change often and are often up to individual store owners, so they may vary in your area.
