NationalWorld has obtained data from app-based fast food delivery firm Deliveroo, revealing the nation’s 20 favourite takeaway dishes over the last six months.

Despite being a relative newcomer to British shores, American burger joint Five Guys comes out on top.

Its humble cheeseburger was the UK’s most popular dish, piping the more long-standing KFC’s boneless banquet to the post.

Deliveroo could not reveal the number of times each meal or menu item was ordered.

It’s not just our Friday night takeaways that we turn to Deliveroo for.

The data shows a latte from Costa Coffee was the 12th most ordered item, and in 17th place was a five pack of bananas from Alidi. Waitrose’s ‘perfectly ripe avocados’ came in 18th.


Deliveroo, as with other food delivery apps, is not available everywhere in the country. Some popular brands, including McDonalds, are also not available on the platform.

You can explore the top 20 items across the UK in the table above.

NationalWorld has also obtained data on dining preferences in 15 major towns and cities across England.

Some familiar names appear again and again. Five Guys was in the top 10 in nine of the cities, while KFC and Burger King appeared seven times each and Tortilla six times.

Five Guys came out on top with its cheeseburger - but how do tastes differ across the country?

But there were also more local brands such as London’s Poke Shack and Newcastle’s Acropolis Greek Street Food.
