Value meals, super sizing, quick trips through the drive thru -- America loves fast food. Wedging itself into nearly every nook and cranny of our society, its everywhere. And some cities in the good ol' 'U.S.of A. take advantage of it more than others.

So says the money-information site, Bundle. They looked at spending data for the largest 100 cities in the U.S. by population and determined which cities spent the most and ate the most often at the following national fast food chains: McDonald's, Wendy's, KFC, Taco Bell, Subway, Pizza Hut, Arby's, and Burger King.

Here's the top ten cities that spend the most on fast food. Can you guess which Arizona city makes the greasy cut?
