Planning a fast food road trip?

If you're driving cross-country, you'll be able to find a fast food establishment of some kind in every single state, but you might have an easier time in the locations that aren't surrounded by sea. Yes, it is middle America that has the most fast food restaurants per capita, with Kentucky taking the lead (fried chicken, anyone?).
