The iconic Canadian purveyor of "double double" coffees ranks among the top five in Zagat's latest survey of fast food chains in the United States.

Tim Hortons was voted fifth-best overall in the "quick refreshment" category. The Oakville, Ont.,-based chain held the same spot for "top decor" and "top service."

Tim Hortons ranked behind Culver's, Peet's Coffee/Tea, Rita's Italian Ice and Caribou Coffee.
