NEW YORK, NY (February 10, 2020) – Thrillist announces nominations for The Fasties to unabashedly celebrate the world of fast food with 16 curated categories that seek to honor our favorite chains, dishes, and fast food trends of the year. Some of the headline-making debates of 2019 will be put to rest as we reveal the superior chicken sandwich and most satisfying plant-based burger when the award show airs on Thrillist.com and YouTube on February 19.
The tongue-in-cheek award show, hosted by YouTube stars David So and Tim DeLaghetto of Thrillist’s "Send Foodz," hopes to be a deep-fried riff on "traditional" award shows, with enough special sauce to make it something uniquely our own: a playful culmination of our longstanding, widely consumed editorial fast food coverage.
Thrillist’s editorial team divided the categories amongst themselves to taste and assess all the restaurant items nominated to make the winning selections. Thrillist has remained committed to covering the latest and greatest in fast food -- from seeking out the most delicious chicken tenders to going so far as to find the absolute best pickles in the game.
