Detectives say the men had just burglarized a home near Cedar and Dakota in Central Fresno.
Quick-thinking neighbors called police and gave a good description of the car and the suspects.
Officers spotted the pair at the McDonald's drive thru. They let them order their chicken sandwiches, and then trapped them in the parking lot.
Both were arrested, and police recovered money and jewelry.
They're now checking to see whether the suspects are connected to other area break-ins.
