Of the nation’s fast-food restaurant chains, Starbucks serves the best coffee, according to a survey by Zagat.

More than 6,000 people completed a fast food survey, rating food and service of more than 100 restaurant chains across the country.

Seattle-based Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ: SBUX) also was voted the nation’s most popular quick refreshment chain in the survey.

Other winners of the New York-based Zagat fast food survey categories included: Subway Restaurants — best mega-chain (more than 5,000 U.S. outlets); Panera Bread — best large chain (less than 5,000 U.S. outlets); best full-service chain: P.F. Chang’s China Bistro.

Starbucks finished down the list in some other categories.

“In other categories, including overall experience and providing healthy options, Starbucks ranked No. 8 and No. 9 respectively, (and) acknowledges that it has room for improvement,” Starbucks officials said in a statement.
