Of all the restaurants and all the fast-food joints in all the world, Facebook users check in to Starbucks the most.

That's according to a report from the social networking giant as reported by Mashable.com Wednesday.

Though the list of top 10 food joints on Facebook Places has the usual suspects, it also includes a few surprising entries. Buffalo Wild Wings, for example, may have 700 outlets overall but it ranked higher than McDonald's when it came to Facebook check-ins, the story points out.

As of August 25, 9 AM GMT, McDonald's had a total of 1,212,773 check-ins since Facebook Places launched, while Starbucks had more than double that number, at 2,554,602.

The coffee shop also boasts the largest number of Facebook fans with 24, 697,819 members ‘liking' their page.

Check-ins for other outlets are unavailable.

Facebook Places was launched last year to rival other location-based social networks like Foursquare and Gowalla.

Here's the list in full:

1. Starbucks
2. Buffalo Wild Wings
3. Chili's
4. Applebee's
5. McDonald's
6. IHOP
7. Denny's
