Bill Gates . Mark Zuckerberg . is the chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway. These business titans all share a common trait with reality TV star Kim Kardashian West.

And it's not fame. It's food.

Even with their nearly unlimited ability to spend, some of the wealthiest people in the world opt for a drive-thru. According to People, Kardashian West, star of E!'s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," has a go-to order at five popular fast-food chains. She says that "fast food is one of my guilty pleasures."

When she's at McDonald's, for example, she "always" has to get an order of fries.

Buffett could relate. The investing legend has an estimated net worth of $80 billion, according to Forbes, but his daily breakfast budget . On his five-minute drive to the office, he will often stop at McDonald's, he says in his HBO documentary "Becoming Warren Buffett. "

These billionaires have all the money in the world — and they still eat at McDonald's

"I tell my wife, as I shave in the morning … either $2.61, $2.95 or $3.17. And she puts that amount in the cup by me here [in the car]. When I'm not feeling quite so prosperous, I might go with the $2.61, which is two sausage patties, and then I put them together and pour myself a Coke."

He adds, "$3.17 is a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit, but the market's down this morning, so I'll pass up the $3.17 and go with the $2.95."

Gates, who has a net worth of $89 billion, is a patron of McDonald's, too. In fact, he's owns a rare McGold card, which gets him free meals anywhere in the world. Of course, that's only when longtime friend Buffett isn't treating Gates and his wife Melinda to lunch there .

And Zuckerberg, who has a net worth of close to $71 billion, is similarly loyal to the fast-food chain. During his 2012 honeymoon in Rome with wife Priscilla Chan, he was spotted eating McDonald's on the Mignanelli Steps near Piazza Spagna.

However different these four leaders may be, they could all find common ground under the golden arches.
