DELRAY BEACH – There’s no doubting that Americans love their fast food.
Therefore, it only makes sense that there be a day to celebrate burgers, fries, chicken and shakes.
That day is today. That’s right, Tuesday Nov. 16 is National Fast Food Day.
It’s not surprising that South Florida comics – many of them fast food aficionados – are happy to weigh in with their funny thoughts on fast food.
Steve Lamm, Matt Durndak, Nadeem Awad, Seetha, Connie Fernandez, Steve Miller and Tim Hanlon have differing views on fast food, and Fast Food Day, but all opinions have merit, right? Those differences only make the above video celebrating National Fast Food Day even more humorous.
Fast food first became popular in the 1950s, with White Castle generally credited as being the first fast food restaurant. Fast forward to recent years, fast food became away of life during the COVID-19 pandemic when purchasing food via the drive thru became a way of life for many.
How should Americans celebrate National Fast Food Day? Make sure to fit a trip to a fast food restaurant for at least one meal today. The brave – or extremely unhealthy – can hit a fast food restaurant for all three meals.
Before heading out, diners should be sure to check their favorite fast food restaurant’s app. Many are offering discounts or deals in honor of Fast Food Day. Upon finding them, be sure to post them on social media using he hashtag #NationalFastfoodDay.
Whether it’s McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Chick-Fil-A, Taco Bell, Hardee’s, In-And-Out Burger, Jack In The Box, Whataburger, Popeye’s, Checkers, Carl’s Jr., KFC or any of the many regional fast food restaurants, something tasty – if, perhaps, unhealthy – can be found.
