NEW YORK -- The iconic Canadian purveyor of "double double" coffees ranks among the top five in Zagat's latest survey of fast-food chains in the United States.
Tim Hortons (TSX:THI) was voted fifth-best overall in the "quick refreshment" category.
The Oakville, Ont.,-based chain held the same spot for "top decor" and "top service," too.
Tim Hortons ranked behind Culver's, Peet's Coffee/Tea, Rita's Italian Ice and Caribou Coffee.
Tim Hortons has some 3,300 outlets in Canada and 734 in the United States.
It had revenues of $2.9 billion last year.
Zagat, behind the popular restaurant review books known as the "burgundy bible," surveyed more than 10,500 diners on 274 restaurant chains.
Google acquired Zagat last year.
