Although it is likely there are lots of eateries and even chains out there claiming to be all-natural or organic, this is the first USDA certified organic fast food restaurant. Located in San Francisco's Bay Area, The Organic Coup is the first of its kind in America.

You can trust that every single thing appearing on the menu -- from the chicken to the sauce -- is organic. Interestingly, the organic fast food restaurant is a fried chicken joint. Founder Erica Welton noticed "people need fast, clean food that's free of antibiotics and synthetic chemicals and pesticides." To make things easier, The Organic Coup has a very small menu, offering just fried chicken wraps, sandwiches and salads with a healthy popcorn snack.
