On November 16th food lovers get a dose of their favorite convenience food on National Fast Food Day. Whether they use the drive-thru, dine-in, or get it to go, fast food will grill up, fry up and broil up menu staples for the entire family.
First popularized in the United States in the 1950s, fast food is considered any meal with low preparation time and served to a customer in a packaged form. The meal makes for quick dine-in, take-out, or take-away. Most fast-food restaurants offer drive-thru service.
While fast-food began as sandwiches and sides, the menus expanded over-time. Today fast-food includes fish, a variety of fried chicken, tacos, pizza, and a wide selection of sides. Sodas quench the thirst and desserts sweeten the menu. From ice cream and shakes to pies and cakes, fast food delivers.
To celebrate this special day, DeKalb County will have a ‘new’ fast-food restaurant opening tomorrow, Tuesday, November 17. “Raising Cane” will open tomorrow in the Target shopping area and will feature a great chicken meal package.
If you can’t wait till tomorrow, the local “Beef Shack” restaurant on West Lincoln Highway has a $1.00 Chicago Style Hot Dog special (mention this story for this deal).
