Another rough day at work. You drove in with the faint blur of the sunrise on the eastern horizon, and now you're heading home and looking at the sun going down in the west. You're tired and you don't feel like cooking. So you pull into the line...
From a speaker at the bottom of a big menu sitting outside in the cold: "Welcome to Taco-Taco; how may I help you?"
The next night: "Welcome to Burger-Burger; how may I help you?"
And later that week: "Welcome to Chicken-Chicken; how may I help you?"
Over the weekend, you stop in to a fast food place serving deli food in an attempt to eat a bit more healthy.
This is life for many...
It's convenient, fast, and sometimes still hot by the time you get home: fast food. It still fuels America and excites kids.
So...this week, the Gorillamen talk all about...fast food!
* * *
We begin with the first fast food we remember eating, and then cover our favorite fast food...and the last fast food we ate. After that, find out if we ever worked in fast food (and where).
Speaking of working in fast food, we chat for a bit about if fast food workers deserve $15 an hour...and if working in fast food is an American rite of passage.
We talk about our grossest fast food experiences and move on to regional or defunct fast food restaurants we miss.
We sing high praises to Whataburger and Taco Bueno, devoting further time to what makes them so damn good!
We chat about the most upscale fast foods we've had before chatting about whether or not food trucks have redefined the fast food industry.
And we wrap it all up with the future of fast food.
