					American Fast Food

The ideals of American fast food have been in place since around 1867
with a hot dog stand. In addition hamburgers and French fries have become
staples on the menu. These items found their way to various fairs and
festivals in order for them to get attention of other people. As more
families entered the workforce with both parents working the idea of
American fast food became more appealing. There was no longer a figure at
home all the time to make sure meals were prepared.

Today people go to fast food restaurants for all types of reasons. They
may be craving a burger made a certain way. They may drive by a familiar
site and decide they really want to try it. Some people travel often and
so they tend to steer towards fast food restaurants they are familiar
with. There is also the issue of time restraints with parents working and
children having activities.

These days there are fast food joints all over the place. Even in small
towns you will find several of them out there as you drive along that
area of town. You can show up in a town you don’t know and likely have a
handful of places to grab something to eat. American fast food is all
about something fast and something familiar. Of course the price is much
lower than what you will find in fancier restaurants and people like that
as well.

The fastest way to get food at this type of restaurant is to use the
drive up window. You won’t even have to get out of your car in order to
get what you want. You just drive up to the speaker, view the menu, order
what you want, and drive to the window. Here you will pay for it and get
what you want. I recommend checking your order though before you drive
away. Too many times I have been given the wrong items at such a
location.

American fast food is often blamed for poor eating habits and even for
people being overweight. Yet people make the choice to eat this food too
often and then want someone to blame. There are some very good choices
you can make at a fast food restaurant as well. You can also limit the
number of times you frequent such locations to result in eating habits
that are much healthier overall.
