Earlier this week, Google released its 11th annual Zeitgeist list, ranking the most popular and fastest-rising search terms. Under the lifestyle category, Google revealed the 10 restaurants with the highest number of searches in the U.S. so far this year:
1. Pizza Hut
3. Papa John’s
6. Olive Garden
9. Jimmy John’s
10. Buffalo Wild Wings
Another interesting tidbit: Mexican food was the No. 7 most searched term on Google Maps, behind airports, casinos, and veterinarians.
The top general terms include Rebecca Black, Google+, Ryan Dunn, Casey Anthony, Battlefield 3, iPhone 5, Adele, 東京 電力 (TEPCO) Fukushima Plant, Steve Jobs and the iPad 2.
