Here's a nice piece of advice: Always check your bag of food before you leave the drive-thru.

A new report from NBC Los Angeles has found that restaurant drive-thrus are now slower, and less accurate than ever!

The average time spent in a drive-thru has increased increased by more than 25 seconds since a year ago to 382 seconds, meaning that's nearly six-and-a-half minutes sitting and waiting or your food.

Order accuracy dropped however, to 85% this year from 87% in 2020.

As far as the most accurate drive-thru, no surprise that Chick-fil-A leads the pack, and was followed by Taco Bell. Arby's, Carl's Jr., and Burger King tied for third place.
