About This Quiz

Although you may have aged beyond Happy Meals or ordering from the kid's menu, we're betting we can still tell how old you are based on your fast food order. Guessing someone's age based up on their love of fries and sandwiches might seem impossible - but we assure you, we are trained professionals who run more efficiently than a McDonald's grill during a lunch rush. 

Dipping your fries in anything other than ketchup might get you a few odd looks in the dining room, but only a seasoned professional would know the joy of using those little dip packets for their spuds. It's the little things that you do with your fast food, the food you order, and the way you eat it that will how many moons you've been on this planet. You might not think it matters where you put your napkin when you eat, but everything single thing you do is another clue for us!

We've developed a unique scale to figure out your age, but we promise you won't have to step on it. It's the kind of scale that will use your fast food palate to assess your birth certificate. Pull up to window number one and let's create your order!
